J D Neuhaus Introduces New Radio Remote Controls for Hoist And Crane Systems

j d neuhaus remote controlsGerman supplier of specialist hoist, crane and trolley solutions J D Neuhaus (JDN) is pleased to announce that the company has further enhanced its remote control technology.

This innovation will bring exceptional ease-of-use and convenience to users across all industries.

Three remote control models are now available, RC-X, RC‑S and RC-SP, each comprising a transmitter and receiver, and all can either be integrated in existing JDN solutions or directly combined with a new JDN hoist.

One of the many advantages of the new JDN receiver is its rigid and extremely compact design.

All components are housed in a space-saving, shock-resistant, glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) casing featuring class-IP65 dust and water protection.

A breathable membrane guides any condensation away from the interior to the exterior. The design also offers seawater resistance for offshore applications.

The radio remote control model RC-X is even suitable for the use in potentially explosive environments rated up to ATEX zone 2 / 22.

Consideration has also been given to ease-of-installation. Even existing JDN hoists and cranes can be retrofitted thanks to the standardised interface of the JDN RC.

The receiver can be mounted directly on the hoist or the trolley, or individually at site. The compact design of the receiver makes it even suitable for hoists with low carrying capacity.

Individual solutions according to specific customer needs are available. Up to 20 hours of use is possible before recharging of the portable transmitter is required.

Perfect for covering long distances between hoist and operator, the JDN RC represents a sensitive alternative to applications with long control hoses.

In addition, it can be used in hard-to-reach places and for simultaneous control of multiple hoists.

JDN’s decision to develop electronic-based radio remote controls as a renowned designer and manufacturer of exclusively pneumatic and hydraulic hoists and cranes may be surprising. Certainly, continuous innovation has been a long-lasting ethos at JDN.

Thanks to a series of industrial firsts, the company enjoys an ever-increasing market share in the field of lifting technology.

When Johann Diederich Neuhaus built his first wooden shaft winch in 1745, he presumably had no idea how decisive it would later become for the...
At its Witten location, J.D. Neuhaus, with 150 employees, produces hoists and crane systems which are mainly driven by compressed air.
