Radio Controls

Product Overview

The RaCon® III handheld remote control is designed to be used in conjunction with the Spacemaster® SX wire rope hoists and the QX modular crane packages. The new ergonomic design offers operators one-hand usability through the integration of a joystick element. This allows operators a more comfortable grip, to better control the load, and smoother movement of the goods.

Crane Operation Made Easy and Safe  

  • Allows full concentration on crane operation, the operator does not have to follow the moving crane with an attached pendant control
  • Crane operator can control the crane from the safest location, no restriction of a fixed-length pendant cable
  • The transmitter's responsive two-step push buttons allow for easy and precise crane control

The multi-function switch has three functions, which can be chosen based on the desired function: i.e., as a key switch, control for multiple functions (selector switch and/or horn button, etc.), or for the start of the crane.

The joystick control operates the travelling movement of the bridge and trolley. The operator can control the radio with a single hand, leaving the other hand free to steady the load if needed. For solo hoists, the joystick will be locked to allow only trolley movement. Joystick symbols are available in DIN, FIN, or ANSI/Compass symbols.
