On Friday December 6 2013 at 14.30 we welcomed Katrin Ekvall from Scanreco as our Wireless Friday presenter:
Topic: Scanreco, on systems for radio remote control of cranes and machines
Abstract: The business idea of Scanreco is to develop, produce and market systems for radio remote control of cranes and machines, in order to effectively increase the use of our customer’s products.
The products uses wireless technology and the aim is to make the usage of large machines easier and safer. Machines that uses this kind of controls are mostly mobile cranes and chain hoists, but are a lot of potential applications.
A radio remote control product also consists of mechanics, digital and analog electronics and software. Since safety is fundamental, the products are designed for smooth handling of machines as well as secure radio transmission. All products have to be approved by the relevant type approval authorities in a country.
For our products we can state that the future is wireless also by adding more sensors, intelligence and safety functions.
