Åkerströms Björbo Launches New Members of Era Family
Åkerströms Björbo AB continues to launch brand new Era remote control products. Last year Åkerströms began by launching a receiver and waist transmitter for industrial use, mostly for cranes and overhead cranes. The second part of the launch is now being initiated with a brand new series of handheld transmitters.
The new hand transmitters are called Remotus Jupiter/Mercury Era, and the Jupiter range will be available in 3 standard models: a transmitter with 8 buttons (Remotus Jupiter Era 8B), one with 6 buttons (Remotus Jupiter Era 6B), and one with 4 buttons (Remotus Jupiter Era 4B). The 8-button transmitter will also be available in the customizable Mercury range, where symbols and functions are tailored to customer requirements. The large, distinct buttons are two-stage, which means each button can have 2 functions. The transmitters work with the previously launched RX160 receiver, which is also compatible with other Åkerströms products.
The hand transmitters weigh just 265 grams (including battery) and have a very smooth, sleek ergonomic design. They fit in one hand and can easily be carried in a pocket. The buttons are easy to operate and designed to also be used with gloves. The graphical display has a clear, simple user interface, and LEDs on each button indicate the selected function, while a separate LED indicates battery status and operation. They have a long operating life of about 40 hours and the output power is adjustable. The transmitters communicate on radio frequencies 433-434 MHz, 863-870 MHz, and 902-928 MHz.
The transmitters are suitable for indoor and outdoor use since they are IP67 rated, that is, completely waterproof and dustproof. The emergency stop function is certified as per EN ISO 13849-1, Cat 3, Pl d, in systems with certified receivers.
As the new hand transmitters are launched, more waist transmitter models will be added to the line that was launched last year.
The waist transmitter has an integrated safety solution for all the senses: sound, vibration, and red warning color. The emergency stop function in all models is certified as per EN ISO 13849-1, Cat 3, Pl d, in systems with certified receivers.
They are equipped with a tilt switch and active stop, which means that they stop immediately, for example, if they are dropped. Sleek ergonomic design, rubberized handle for optimum grip, and protective metal feet are just a few of their great physical properties.
