What's wrong with this pendant?
If it looks familiar contact Ace Industries to have your pendant replaced with a radio control pendant.
- Radio controls can improve safety and productivity when used with overhead cranes instead of tethered controls.
- With the operator at a better location away from the load and not tethered to the crane, visibility is increased.
- The operator will have better mobility when no longer tethered to the crane.
- Communication with spotters and others close by will also improve.
When radio controls are used please refer to OSHA Standard 1910.179 as well as ANSA ASC C63 Electromagnetic Compatibility Standard.
