New from leading industrial remote control manufacturer HBC-radiomatic is a multi-equipment remote that offers operators maximum mobility and safety. Wireless technology means that the keynote can be used to operate a wide range of equipment remotely without the need for pendant cables or static control panels.
The hand-held device is robustly designed with 12-one-step buttons sized and spaced to enable use while wearing safety gloves. It offers complete freedom of movement which greatly improves safety and with an instant ‘stop’ impact button, operators can react immediately in emergency situations.
The keynote offers a complete package of features and functions, including a transmitter that allows the output of 21 single-step commands and comes complete with radiomatic iLOG which enables the quick activation of a spare transmitter in the event of an out of action radio control.
Keynote operates with a wide range of HBC’s radio receivers and is suited for applications with AC or DC power supply. It is compatible with interfaces such as CAN-Bus, Profibus-DP, RS232 and RS 485 and it operates on a wide range of frequencies.
Other features include a re-chargeable NiMH battery which has 30 hours of continuous operating time and can be changed in a matter of seconds without any effect on memory. LEDs indicate operation, battery status, feedback information and warning messages. An extended range of functions is available via bank switch to a second control level with LED showing the selected control level. Complete with battery, the keynote weighs just 360g (0.8lb) and its casing incorporates a belt clip for convenience.
The keynote is available from HBC-radiomatic UK, the newly established UK division of one of the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of radio controls for industrial applications.
