New Li-ion batteries available for Dynamic / MJ / MK Series
Lithium-ion batteries and battery chargers are now available for the Dynamic and Modular series. These
optional batteries allow extended radio remote control run time (approx. 80% longer than NiMH), better
performance at very low temperatures, extended life after 500 charge/discharge cycles, and recharge time
reduced by approximately 40% in comparison with standard batteries. These batteries are also
recommended for applications where the remote control may not be used for a period of some months, as the
risk of battery damage when not being charged is reduced. Datasheet
Designed for use in Elevating Work Platform applications, the Supervised Operator System (SOS) provides
controls for the operator in the Basket, as well as as safety Observer on the ground. With an integrated
receiver that communicates simultaneously with both transmitters, the system allows the Supervisor to
quickly shut down the machine or take control in an emergency.
More information is available on the SOS page.
New Chain Hoist receiver for AIR series safety remote controls
Chain hoists can present several challenges to the installer of radio remote control systems. Typically, the
space available is very small, and there may be insufficient power from the hoist’s control transformer to
operate a radio receiver. Operation from normal mains voltage may not be possible, as many hoists operate
from 3-phase power with no neutral wire being run, The new type-H receiver solves these problems with its
ultra-compact design and extremely wide operating voltage (40-450Vac), When teamed with the automatic
channel-selection and other powerful features of the AIR series, it makes the perfect remote control for chain
hoists. AIR Series
A8-2-L1 Safety Remote Control now available
The type-L receiver for the AIR series is now available for immediate delivery, With its integrated 40-
264Vac power supply, the type-L is the receiver of first-choice for cranes where ruggedness, reliability,
safety and economy are of equal concern. If data-feedback is required, the type G1 receiver has the same
features, as well as 4 x digital inputs which may be used to display the crane status on the handpiece.

Powerful new HMI Controllers
Intercontrol have released the powerful new HMI-4 and HMI-7 operator interfaces. Available
in variants with and without touchscreens and mechanical keypads, the devices have 4.3”
and 7” TFT colour graphic LCDs. Programmable in CodeSYS 3.5, the HMI-4 and HMI-7 can
operate as a CANOpen master, so only need the addition of ICN-V or ICN-D nodes to build a
complete control system. Electrically and mechanically rugged, they are perfectly suited for
off-road vehicle control systems.
The catalogue is available here.
New Proportional control on a push-button LK remote
The LK6-1 handheld remote control is now available with a potentiometer on the side that provides a 0-
10V output at the receiver. Designed for machinery that requires speed control, it can be used with
receivers on either AC or DC machines, so is a perfect fit where variable-speed drives neet to be
controlled with an adjustable voltage. Other applications include concrete line pumps, forestry
machines, and the proportional control of hydraulic valves with optional PWM control.
New Pendant for Chain Hoists
Available in the early 2015, the new HP03 pendant is the perfect partner for chain hoists.
With two ergonomically-styled pushbuttons and a positive-break Emergency-stop, the HP03 allows
operation with heavy gloves while still maintaining excellent control. Available in both 1-speed and 2-speed
variants, the buttons have positive travel and detents, so the operator can feel that he has selected the
correct speed. The giuards around the buttons allow easy access, but provide protection against the knocks
that pendants are subjected to, and helps prevent inadvertent operation.
Our Online Store is open

Various payment types are available, including Paypal and EFT, or you can call or fax us you credit
card details if you prefer.
ARX receiver now available
The compact and cost-effective ARX receiver is now available for the Dynamic series remotes, It can be a
good choice for simpler applications where there are not a lot of functions, and the capabilities of the
standard ARM receiver are not needed. Consequently, it is mostly used on FJS and FJL remote controls
on truck cranes, and other small machines where its compact size is a particular advantage.

New Cable Controllers with CANOpen option
We have now released the WA (analogue) and WC (CANopen) cable controllers which are a
perfect partner for our proportional radio control systems. The WA type is capable of driving
up to 6 x bi-directional PWM valves or voltage-controlled valves (e.g. Danfoss PVEH). The
WC type provides a CANOpen interface and can also featre a graphic screen for the display
of machine status in icons and text. Available in two sizes, the WA/WC remotes are locally
designed and built to suit your application.
