The idea of wireless industrial technology was developed and improved in broader extent only a few years ago. However, within these few years, the progress in the wireless industrial technology has moved to the next level. The modern radio remote controls, designed by the reputed manufacturers, are generally used gigantic machines. The use of those powerful remote controls ensures the interference free control of the system. Some of the useful fields where these industrial wireless controls are used are: industrial petroleum, bulk transport, aircraft, propane and anhydrous ammonia fueling, service cranes, tank truck equipment, and many more.
As mentioned before, nowadays, radio remote controls are used in the construction for many applications requiring interference free control. In order to ensure the fact, that the system will not be hampered by any electrical or radio interference, a unique Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology is used in these modern wireless devices. The FHSS technology prevents all types of radio and electrical signal interference and ensures the machine runs well. During any such signal interference FHSS technology shuts down the whole system without allowing any further disturbances. This ensures the safety of the system.
Most of these wireless remote controls installation simply requires connections to the power supply and an output relay screw terminals. The operator can activate those output relays by pressing the button on the transmitter encoder. The unit is housed in a rugged IP68 weatherproof enclosure and the receiver unit has a capacity to learn up to 15 transmitter button pairings. The receiver can memorize all the signals sent by the wireless transmitter even if the power is removed. The transmitter is really powerful and it has individual switch for sending signals. All of these individual switches can be paired with any or all the receiver relay outputs. As a result the efficiency of the system is ensured and productivity is also increased.
Generally 12/24 VDC battery is used as a main power supply for the system. Additionally, one can use the 230 VAC power supply. However, under any circumstances the system should not be connected with more than one power supply. When the operator wants to remove the cover, he/she should isolate the main input from power supply. The maintenance of the system is also very easy. However, one must need to call the certified electrician in order to repair the system if required.
The system starts working when the transmitter and receiver unit is paired. The signal sent by the transmitter unit is encoded / read by the receiver unit. After that, the receiver unit works accordingly or lets the machine work according to the signal sent by the transmitter. Each transmitter has a unique identity and the transmitter emits a highly secure RF signal each time when the switch is pressed. The receiver unit can learn any of the encrypted signals and allocate to an output. Some of the popular wireless remote control products are: Ranger series, Ranger DM series, wireless emergency shutdown, pro control series, Leak detection system, and many more.
BASE Engineering designs excellent wireless industrial remotecontrols systemsfor different engineering and commercial purposes including butane and propane industry and industrial petroleum sector. Since 1996 over 50,000 BASEsystems have been employed around the globe to increase job safety and productivity. Wireless remote controllers, in our hand, have moved into the next level.
