Worldwide control

25 April 2008

A “global” line of radio remote controls has been introduced by Cattron-Theimeg. A key feature of the new Excalibur line, launched at the CeMat exhibition in Germany late last year, is its worldwide design and architecture. “We have many OEM customers who market their products all over the world,” said Wieland Weigler, managing director, Cattron-Theimeg Europe. “Our systems must be universally deployable and meet all the relevant standards in all countries.”

Excalibur will compete primarily in the mid to lower range, non-engineered, remote control market where pricing is competitive, Cattron said.

A range of applications can be accommodated from small hoists to large EOT cranes. Initially available will be transmitters with six to 12 two-step push buttons and receivers with nine, 12 or 17 relays. A receiver with up to 32 relays is expected to follow.
