Radio remote controls for hoists and cranes

J.D. Neuhaus (JDN), a world leader in air hoists, cranes, trolleys and monorail hoists, has further enhanced its remote control capabilities. This innovation will bring exceptional ease of use and convenience to users across all industries. Three remote control models are now available, RC-X, RC-S and RC-SP, each comprising a transmitter and receiver, and all can either be integrated in existing JDN solutions or directly combined with a new JDN hoist.

One of the many advantages of the new JDN receiver is its rigid and extremely compact design. All components are housed in a space-saving, shock-resistant GRP (glass-reinforced plastic) casing featuring protection class IP65 (dust and water protected). A breathable membrane guides any condensation away from the interior to the exterior. The design also offers seawater resistance for offshore applications. The RC-X radio remote control model is even suitable for use in potentially explosive environments rated up to ATEX zone 2/22.

Consideration has also been given to ease of installation. Even existing JDN hoists and cranes can be retrofitted thanks to the standardized interface of the JDN RC. The receiver can be mounted directly on the hoist or the trolley, or individually at site. The compact design of the receiver makes it also suitable for hoists with low carrying capacity.


Individual solutions available

Individual solutions according to specific customer needs are available. Up to 20 hours of use are possible before recharging of the portable transmitter is required.

Perfect for covering long distances between hoist and operator, the JDN RC represents a useful alternative to applications with long control hoses. In addition, it can be used in hard-to-reach places and for simultaneous control of multiple hoists.

JDN’s decision to develop electronic-based radio remote controls as a renowned designer and manufacturer of exclusively pneumatic and hydraulic hoists and cranes may be surprising. Certainly, continuous innovation has been a long-lasting ethos at JDN. Thanks to a series of industry firsts, the company enjoys an ever-increasing market share in the field of lifting equipment.
