Laird have today introduced the new CattronControl LRC-S1, a compact operator control unit for cranes, lifting equipment and other industrial machines. Well suited for rugged industrial environments, the LRC-S1 OCU has a fixed layout with customer definable control elements. The LRC-S1 is compatible with both digital and analog drive systems for cranes and machines and provides the opportunity to upgrade from push button units, without paying for the cost of a fully configurable joystick control unit.

Other features include system configuration available via secure wireless TransKey (RFID), variety of frequencies for worldwide use, graphic LCD and LEDs for status and feedback along with tandem and multi-transmitter and/or receiver operation.

David Stagg, product manager at Laird, comments: “The LRC-S1 is a perfect fit for anyone looking for a high quality, small and light operator control unit. The search for a smaller and lighter package is met with the need to maintain the familiar functionality of larger joystick units and that’s exactly what we have done with the LRC-S1.”

The LRC-S1 is ideal for rugged industrial environments with a robust housing made of high impact-resistant polycarbonate resin. This OCU emphasizes safety with advanced dual processor electronics and redundant hardware and software architecture, placing it in a high safety-class. There is also an optional force/angle safety feature that enhances the safety aspect of this control unit.
