Today, noting is more important in industrial automation work, than in the industrial remote control switches. Although the invention of industrial automation certainly has proven to be advancement in the market production, there is no doubt that increased technology at such a high level demands for increased safety.
Why Wireless Radio Remote Controls Are Important?
Wireless trigger switch radio remote controls are specially manufactured for industrial applications requiring positive operator to machine contact. A wireless trigger switch is used to send RF command signals to the pump.
The system incorporates a secure frequency hopping, spread spectrum radio link that is virtually immune to outside electrical or RF interference. The operations fail safe shutdown with any loss of signal from transmitter. The rechargeable transmitter delivers 30hrs of continuous use between charges. Industrial remote control switches for petroleum industry has some special features that includes;
- Industrial remote control trigger switches have software available to limit switch closure duration prior to automatic shut-off.
- The system feature requires periodic trigger pulse by operator to maintain receiver on condition.
- This is up to eleven other command functions available per customer’s requirements.
- The modular quick connect components allow for easy installation and field service.
- The pre-wired solenoids are available for pneumatic, hydraulic or hose reel interface.
The Remote Control Switches Include Safety Sensors:
This industrial remote control switches has product safety sensor. There are varies types of safety sensors such as break a beam sensor, these are triggered when a solid beam of light gets interrupted by something, therefore shutting off power, or initiating whatever safety response. Other types of industrial safety product sensors include interlock or tag out device, a photoelectric safety sensor, a safety block, and even sensor switches to aid with electrical connections.
Now the hose reel option allows remote unwind or rewind control greatly reducing effort required to pull the hose off the reel. The potential injury is reduced and productivity is increased through easier hose handling. The control switches are easy to install prewired hose real motor solenoids and 70amp breaker included with the option. At the same time, the systems designs prevent unwind and rewind circuits from being energized.
In addition, the PTO or Pump option extends pump life and increases safety by allowing operator to engage and disengage the PTO and PUMP from hose end at customer’s storage tank. Now track PTO shaft is not turning, pump is not running in by pass, and hose is not changed unless connected to the customer’s tank. The PTO connection can be electrical, pneumatic and hot shift or clutch shift. The feature prevents an excess flow slug situation which when happens, starves the pump and may lead to pump failure.
