The idea of refueling aircrafts in flight was developed among the Russian Navy during 1917. After that many innovations, many improvements were made in the way how aircraft is refueled. During these modern days wireless remote controllers are used as a chief component of controlling the Aircraft Refueling System. As a result of these modern wireless remote controllers, the job of refueling Aircrafts has become easier than it was ever.
Aircraft refueling system reaches to its extremeness with the successful implementation of Wireless Deadman Remote controls. This industrial radio remote control system utilizes spread spectrum, frequency-hopping radio technology that virtually eliminates interference-related signal loss. They are available up to twelve functions. All these functions can be specified providing hose-end control of the deadman valve, hose reel, PTO, engine RPM, pump, meter, and other truck equipment.
Wireless Dedaman Series radio remote controls are basically developed for industrial applications requiring positive operator-to-machine contact. A wireless trigger-switch is used in order to send RF command signals to the pump. While using the industrial radio remote control unit the operator is unencumbered by cables and wires normally used in 'deadman' fueling operations.
These wireless remote controllers also incorporate a secure frequency hopping, spread-spectrum radio link that is virtually immune to outside electrical or RF interference. When the system functions all the operations fail safe (shutdown) with any loss of signal from transmitter. The rechargeable transmitter used in the system delivers 30hrs of continuous use between charges. 12/24VDC charger is supplied with the system.
Below are some particular system specifications:
The operator generally uses 'Safety Timer' software in controlling the whole unit. The Safety
Timer software is available to limit switch closure duration prior to automatic shut-off
This feature requires periodic trigger pulse by operator to maintain receiver 'on' condition
Up to eleven other command functions available per customer requirements
Modular quick-connect components allow for easy installation and field service
Pre-wired solenoids are available for Pneumatic, Hydraulic, or Hose Reel control interface
The transmitter of the Deadman series remote controllers is very powerful. The transmitters used in general purpose have a frequency range of 902-928 MHz FHSS. Additional 433.92MHz, 869.7MHz & 2.4GHz radios frequency ranges are also available. The transmitter works within a transmitting power range of 100mW. It can work with the 56 bit DES encryption key transmission method of transmission.
An internally protected 'on card' PCB mounted antenna is also available with a normal range up to Up to 500 feet. Higher power range is also available. However, you will find no visible antennas to damage. The entire system is constructed in a rugged weatherproof polymer enclosure in order to provide durability. The transmitter can work well within the temperature range between minus 20 F to 185 F. Normal 12/24VDC rechargeable Lithium Ion battery is used as a main power supply for the system. Once recharged, the battery can provide 30hrs of continuous use. An audible low battery warning and flashing LED indicator is also available. 12/24VDC charger is supplied with the system.
BASE Engineering designs excellent industrial radio remote control systems for different engineering and commercial purposes. Since 1996 over 50,000 BASE systems 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. Wireless
remote controllers, in our hand, have moved into the next level.
