MRC R-Series Radio Motion Remote Controller

For Adele's world tour, Movecat has developed a chain-hoist remote control, suitable for use throughout the world, that is now also available to other users. The MRC R-Series includes models operating in the 2.4 GHz ISM band for the remote control of four, eight or 12 Movecat D8/D8 Plus chain hoists. These motion remote controllers feature the Tru-Diversity transceiver system. To provide for interference-free operation, this allows the user to choose any of ten channels or else opt for automatic channel selection. The MRC R-Series is R&TTE, ETSI EN 300 220/328, DIN EN 60204-32 and EN 13849-1 compliant.

The controllers are equipped with three-position run-direction selector switches located directly on the front panel and an illuminated GO button. For the illumination of the EMERGENCY STOP button, the Movecat developers have opted for a function-based solution. The GO, EMERGENCY STOP and channel-selector buttons are accompanied by LED status indicators, which in the case of the EMERGENCY STOP button also provide information about errors and the battery charge level. For carrying comfort, each transmitter module comes with a belly strap.

The receiver modules, functions and plugs are compatible with the existing MRC E-Series and capable therefore of combining with all MPC E- and I-Series controllers without restrictions. They also draw their power from the receiver modules, whilst the RMC transmitters are powered by a 7.2 V/500 mAh exchangeable storage battery with an extended temperature range.

For maximum convenience, the remote controls can be employed in all countries within the European Community as well as Switzerland without any obligation to register or pay any fees. It contains a CE/Europe, FCC/USA, FC/Canada and ARIB/Japan certified RF-module use, the conformity with that rules are the base for the worldwide use. For clarification of the situation regarding trouble-free radio operation in further countries, Movecat should be consulted. The devices comply with all current radio and safety guidelines and are suitable without restrictions for the control of lifting equipment.
