Windows compatible remote controls
Datek has developed a Windows interface for its complete line of receivers. This makes it possible for customers to combine Profibus, CANopen or relay outputs with a PC interface in the same wireless system. For some special applications where there are no need for other communication, the PC interface can be used as standalone.
Crane functions and other safety-critical control functions must not be controlled over the PC interface since Windows doesn’t fulfill valid safety standards. However, the PC interface can be used to enter data into customer specific OEM software programs. Examples of such data can be weights, logistics information, work report numbers etc. The interface can also be used in educational purposes, controlling crane simulators from a professional transmitter instead of gaming joysticks.
The new machinery directive
Less than one year remains of the transit period, until the safety standard EN 954-1 is completely replaced by the new ISO 13849-1:2006. Datek has conformed to the new standard since the new machinery directive was implemented in 2009-12-29. Datek radio remote controls conforms to “Performance Level e” (PL e) for the stop function, and PL d for all other safety functions.

The protection device senses a fall or if the transmitter is lying at an unnatural angle. The feature is available as an option on all new transmitters, the protection can also be fitted to earlier Datek models. Please contact us for further information.
