Built to withstand the harshest conditions!
and rugged engineering give the T34C a unique shape and style that
provide the equipment operator with a controller that is extremely
durable, convenient, and easy to operate. This extremely lightweight
'Belly Box' style controller is ideal for indoor(and limited outdoor)
crane remote control applications in most industrial environments.
The T34C can be used with most Cattron licensed AT series or MP
series receiver/decoder units as well as most existing systems as
either a replacement or spare controller.
One of the more distinctive features
of the T34C is the unique design of its control levers. Machined
from aircraft-quality 6061 billet aluminum, the handle for each
lever is a different geometric shape making it easier for the operator
to distinguish between control levers without looking down. The
controller is constructed with advanced microcomputer electronics
employing surface mount technology and employs Cattrons standard
Self-Diagnostics (lever/switch test with audible tones) that users
have come to rely on. The main housing is made of high-grade aluminum
and incorporates a guard bar which protects the switches against
physical damage. Only the highest quality industrial grade and 'mil-spec'
switches whose reliability and construction have been field tested
and proven under extreme conditions are used. The T34C controllers
have room for up to six control levers and can be customized with
additional pushbuttons and toggle switches.
The T34C uses readily available standard
AA alkaline or niMH rechargeable batteries. In normal operation,
a green LED blinks with each function command message. For added
safety and improved performance, the operating voltage is regulated
over the entire battery life, insuring constant range and reliable
operation. Whether you choose disposable or rechargeable batteries,
changing the battery is easy - simply open the gasketed battery
cover, drop the battery in place and close the cover. There are
no wires or connectors to insert.
When the operator first turns the power
switch on, a sophisticated self-test routine monitors the motor
function switches to detect a broken wire or a defective switch.
All motor function lever switches are tested for neutrality and a
small speaker beeps when the test is complete. If a motor function
switch failure occurs, it is recognized as a problem and "locked
out" from any further input. A special message is sent to the
receiver/decoder to advise maintenance personnel of the problem.
The message is both displayed and stored in the data-log of the controller's
Cattron T34C controllers are equipped
with a tilt switch to activate diagnostics and can be optionally
programmed to send a function. This function can be assigned in the
decoder for a variety of operations, i.e., to stop equipment, sound
an alarm or both. Every controller may also be equipped with an
additional PC-compatible diagnostic port.
