The CM1000 Radio Remote Control For Continuous Miners

Download PDF Literature

Portable Radio Remote Controls allow operators of continuous miners to choose the safest position with the best vantage point from which to operate. This means safer, more efficient operation, increased production and lower operating costs.

Designed to be a direct drop-in replacement for current remote control systems on 1 KV and 2.3 KV continuous miners, the CM1000 is also available as original equipment when specified. Built in accordance with MSHA's most recent System Safety Recommendations, it can stand up to the harsh environment of an underground mine without being bulky or heavy.

The CM1000 system comes with two IP67 Controller/Transmitters so you will never be down for a broken switch. And each will operate for 24 hours on a single charge, "cutting the cord" and eliminating the need for a PTO connection from a cap lamp. In addition, the CM1000 system includes a Smart Quad Charger that also provides real-time trouble shooting of the Controllers.
