To a wide extent they feature the same functionality as the "ordinary" RRC’s. One addition however is the possibility to use a cable control. This provides an extra failsafe against shutdown if a fault occurs in one if the other types of communication.
Both systems can be delivered with simplex or duplex communication. The duplex communication option allows the operator to receive messages (alarm messages, status indications etc.) through led’s, control display, indicator instruments, etc.
Additionally, the base units can be delivered with a serial interface for the most common bus standards on market today. On request, they can be delivered without explosion proof and increased safety encapsulation if this is deemed not necessary.
The battery used in the terminal is intrinsically safe. As a consequence the exchanging of the battery can be done in an explosive area. Typical applications for these radio remote controls are offshore oil and gas equipment, mining applications and maritime cranes and winches.
