New features have recently been implemented in Autec’s Air series radio remote controls.

New features have recently been implemented in Autec’s Air series radio remote controls. The series includes transmitters with 8, 6 or 4 pushbuttons and is particularly suitable for Industrial Lifting applications and automations. Bi-directional radio communication, automatic search for a free frequency at start-up, incorporated dual band radio to operate at approved frequencies in several markets around the globe are its  main radio features. A rechargeable Lithium-ion battery allows long operation (40 hours) and does not suffer memory effect; furthermore, a 15-minute recharge will allow up to 3 hours of operation.
A ready-to-use backup transmitter may be supplied, eliminating any need to act on the receiver to replace the transmitter. Systems with multiple receiver or transmitters are now available for special needs (e.g. Tandem mode, Take&Release).

All Autec radio control products are designed with integrated safety functions (i.e. protected from faults) according to the latest international functional safety standards (ISO 13849-1 and IEC 62061).
