Available now from Cavotec , the MC-3000 Ex and MC-3-6 Ex radio remote controls are designed for use in the mining and tunneling industry to provide secure and flexible control over a vast range of machinery.
These units possess similar features to common standard radio remote controls, but also can also be adapted to use cable control. This system provide users with an extra guarantee against shutdown if other communication links fail.
Both the MC-3000 Ex and MC-3-6 Ex radio remote control systems can be delivered with simplex or duplex communication, an option that allows operators to receive messages, such as alarms and status indications, through LEDs, control display and indicator instruments.
Additionally, the base units on these radio remot controls can be delivered with a serial interface for the most common bus standards on the market today, and the battery used in the terminal is intrinsically safe, making battery exchange possible in explosive areas.
Typical applications for these radio remote controls include offshore oil and gas equipment, mining applications and maritime cranes and winches.
