RaCon® 3 Radio Controller

The RaCon® 3 handheld radio remote control features a new ergonomic design, giving operators one-hand usability through the integration of a joystick element.

Crane Operation Made Easy and Safe

The RaCon® 3 remote control is designed to be used in conjunction with the Spacemaster® SX wire rope hoists and the QX® or QL crane packages. The ergonomic design allows operators a more comfortable grip to better control the load. With their full concentration on the load, crane operators can control the crane from the safest location with no restriction of a fixed-length pushbutton controller cable.
