EASYcontrol 40
The EASY control 40 is the safety radio control system for special applications. With an identical transmitter housing as the EASYcontrol 30, but with an extended range of commands of up to 40 data bits on the radio channel, the EASYcontrol 40 has up to 48 addressable output channels and up to six-stage joysticks.

The receiver features a completely modular design with plug-in relay cards enabling simple configuration. Individual modules can be quickly replaced in the event of a problem. The processing of the output relay is fully programmable. The output wiring can be connected as required via the internal terminal strip and can be easily adapted to any situation.

The EASYcontrol 40 is the ideal radio control system for cranes requiring a wide range of commands such as those with large magnetic systems used in steel manufacturing or in the ship building industry.

The tandem operation (pitch-and-catch) option enables the crane to be controlled alternately by two or more transmitters. One transmitter assumes responsibility for issuing commands to the crane until it relinquishes responsibility via an active command. This enables the crane to be controlled by other operators. This option is useful wherever heavy or long loads have to be transported simultaneously by two cranes in tandem, or where different operators have to transport loads over relatively long distances.

EASYcontrol 41
The EASYcontrol 41 is for applications requiring proportional outputs. With up to 8 proportional outputs with 16 direction contacts and an additional 17 relay outputs, the EASYcontrol41 also has up to 8-bit resolution with 256 stages per master switch level and an isolated output voltage, 0 - 10 V/DC,4 - 20 mA. The output curve of the proportional voltage can be programmed in accordance with the customer's requirements.

EASYcontrol 42
The EASYcontrol 42 features data feedback from the crane to the transmitter. This feedback, frequently weighing data, can be displayed on an alphanumeric LCD display on the transmitter or by up to 16 LEDs for displaying status messages.
