During these days, ASKW series for LPG and Refined Fuels industrial remote control systems are very popular in industrial sectors. These are the result of over twenty years experience in pumping system and tank safety equipment design. They provide unrestricted hose end control that increase productivity and improving safety over conventional truck mounted manual controls properly. The system has a good and professional service record in petrochemical service.
In addition, the industrial remote control technology has a proven record of great reliability and performance. The system is particularly developed for fuel delivery truck applications requiring explosion proof, severe-service remote controls; the industrial remote controls ASKW system is available with one to eight control buttons in a rugged. It has a compact package.
This absolutely compact with polycarbonate receiver units that are easily installed using prewired electrical harness supplied. Not only that that, the external antenna and coax provides up to 1000 ft (300m) operating range with enough power to punch through brick, concrete, and metal walls. Now a small external ‘learn’ button allows for easy transmitter replacement. And the systems are factory ‘married’ with unique 32 bit ID codes ensuring the receiver will not work with any other transmitter.
The internal diagnostic LEDS monitor battery levels, signal connection, and wiring faults for easy troubleshooting. Receivers are energized only during pumping operations and have built-in ‘fail-safe’ feature closing all tank valves with any power loss or truck movement.
ASKW systems are available for all makes of trucks, tanks, and chassis mounted pumping systems. Quick-connect remote wire harness can be factory ordered and pre-installed as an option from most major truck manufacturers. 12/24VDC, RS232, and J1939 CAN bus chassis interface connections are available. All systems use state of the art encryption technology to ensure an interference free, fail-safe signal.
Now there are several manufactures design and manufacture its own proprietary radio modules to ensure good quality control and optimal performance. These systems are FCC, CE, and ATEX approved for hazardous locations. At the same time these systems comply to USA DOT RSPA, Canadian CSA B620, and International standards for “off truck” remote controls.
Almost every part of these systems is best quality. Actually the cast aluminum handheld is waterproof and extremely durable. This is up to eight transmitter buttons that are custom labeled in any language. And the transmitters will operate up to 300 hours continuously and have built-in low battery warning LEDS.
There are different features of ASKW series. These are;
EMERGENCY STOP feature closes all tank valves, and kills the truck engine and pump. BASE’s ‘safety latched’ signal causes the tank valves and pump to remain inoperative until a manual system reset is performed.
The Query option is required on LPG delivery vehicles in some countries and is available on all ASKW systems. This feature requires the operator periodically press a ‘QUERY’ button on the remote control to keep the pumping system active.
The Engine RPM or HROTTLE option allows operator to increase/decrease truck engine RPM and corresponding pump volume from the customer’s tank/ hose-end of the delivery.
BASE Engineering designs excellent Industrial remote controls for different engineering and commercial purposes. Since 1996 over 50,000 BASEsystems have been employed around the globe to increase job safety and productivity. As a result of this design effort we have the confidence to offer a four year, no hassle, and replacement warranty on every product we manufacture. Industrial remote controls in our hand have moved into the next level.
