In the spirit of the motto, ´safety, efficiency, easy handling´, HBC-radiomatic presents its stunning innovations at Excon 2013.
HBC-radiomatic comes with high-performing radio controls with colour display and exceptional operating comfort Live video transmission with video camera for working areas with limited view.
Spectrum E: more space, more functions, unlimited possibilities
Spectrum E is the new high-end version of the renowned spectrum series by HBC-radiomatic. This radio control offers space for a huge number of operating elements and features and is thus the perfect choice for applications with exceptionally large function ranges, such as bucket excavators, special transport vehicles, drilling machines, and many more. HBC´s innovative transmitter sets new standards regarding operating comfort. With 3.5 kg (7.7 lbs), the device is about 3 kg (6.6 lbs) lighter than the previous models with a comparable function range. This is accomplished by a newly developed housing in the spectrum design. In contrast to the special housings used up until now, it has much more compact dimensions and is thus comfortable to carry, even for long operations.
Spectrum E is available with up to six joysticks or 10 linear levers as well as numerous push buttons, toggle or rotary switches (maintained/spring-return). As with all spectrum transmitters, all operating elements can be combined in different combinations. An individually configurable 3.5? colour TFT shows important machine data, status information, and warnings, depending on the customer´s requirements. This ensures additional safety. The necessary power is provided by a newly developed Li-ion exchange battery. Up to 18 hours of continuous operation are possible without changing the battery.
For the perfect adaptation to the specific working area, the functionality of the quality product from Crailsheim, Germany can be considerably expanded with many additional functions. Among these features are the newly developed live video transmission and the user identification with the HBC data logger. For extremely long, interruption-free machine operations, radiomatic CPS (Continuous Power Supply) is the perfect choice. With this clever function, the operator can replace the battery without interrupting power; the machine stays activated! A broad range of proven HBC features, for example tandem operation as well as different frequency management systems, complete the package perfectly.
Technos 2: The comfortable design with 3.5? TFT and new functions
With technos 2, HBC-radiomatic presents a new radio control with colour display and many useful additional functions in an ergonomic housing. The transmitter features a convenient 3.5? TFT for the indication of operational data and many valuable, optional features for example the new live video transmission with video camera for the safe control of machines in areas with limited view.
Depending on the customer´s requirements, technos 2 is available with diverse combinations of up to three HBC joysticks (also with z-axis switches for three drive commands each), up to eight linear levers, and numerous other switches and buttons. The excellent endurance of technos 2 is another advantage for the operator: even when the display is always activated, the transmitter offers up to 18 hours of continuous operating time. The necessary power is provided by a newly developed Li-ion exchange battery. If needed, the battery can be changed in just a few seconds with a few easy steps, and the operator con continue to work without losing time.
Technos 2 is available with numerous useful HBC Smart Options, for example, an integrated LED flashlight. This can be very helpful if the operator changes positions in conditions with limited lighting. Further options are the user identification with data logger, the micro/orthogonal drive for demanding driving manoeuvres, as well as several fully or partially automated frequency management systems. With all these options, technos 2 can be entirely configured according to the customer´s wishes and is extremely versatile. The spectrum ranges from multi-functional tower cranes to stone crushers and telehandlers, from magnet cranes to logistic vehicles and container transporters.
Safe and precise control with video transmission
Positioning a gripper arm precisely over the load, driving a logistic vehicle through areas with limited view, or applying a drill bit exactly at the desired position in narrow spaces: all of this and much more can now be easily implemented with the new HBC video transmission function from a safe distance and with a live camera view! This exciting innovation works with up to eight powerful and enormously robust video cameras simultaneously. They can be installed in a good location on the machine and the working environment, and can then transmit the working situation in high-resolution images directly to the transmitter´s 3.5? TFT with a range of up to 150 m over a separate radio link. The images are shown on the non-reflecting TFT with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. Thus the operator always has a perfect view of the application and working area and can operate precisely and safely, even in demanding situations. A clever feature is the integrated day/night-switching. As soon as the illumination of the working area falls below a pre-determined value, the cameras automatically switch to several infrared LEDs. This means that the operator can also work when it is dark. Depending on the transmitter model, it is also possible to switch back to the standard data indication on the display. This allows taking perfect advantage of the possibilities of the 3.5? TFT.
