Buttons for trolley selection, multi-function control and micro speed enable easy crane operations. With the multi-function feature, several motions and speed levels can be activated and run simultaneously from one single button. Releasing the button stops all operations. The micro button disables the second speed level on all motions.
On transmitters with single-step buttons, a Shift button changes the functionality of the buttons. This makes it possible to control 20 different digital functions, even though the transmitter is only equipped with 12 push buttons. The buttons either have momentary functions, which give a signal for only as long as you keep pressing, or a lock function. The LEDs indicate active functions.
Extended speed levels
It is possible to use extended speed levels when the transmitter is used for applications that have more than two speed steps. The button has two mechanical steps, but when it is held in its second step the speed is automatically increased further.
If the button is released to its first step, the transmitter maintains the speed. The transmitter can handle a maximum of four functions with up to seven speed levels.
Safe multiple operation
Multiple-receiver operation means that one transmitter can take control of up to two receivers at the same time. This makes it easy to handle simultaneous lifting, for instance. Multiple-transmitter operation means that the control can be shifted between two transmitters. Handovers may be appropriate in the case of long transfers where the view is blocked.
Datek’s multiple operation ensures that only one transmitter at a time can have control of the receiver. Operators have to make an active choice to transfer the control, by either relinquishing control or taking control.
The D2012 is backwards compatible and can substitute for Datek’s previous transmitter models. This makes it possible to update an older system using a new transmitter without making modifications to the radio receiver and relay cabinet. Datek’s products are generally backwards compatible in terms of both hardware and software, so that we can provide the best possible service.
Long operation time
The interchangeable battery has a continuous operating time of up to 24 hours. The battery can be recharged in 2.5 hours using the accompanying battery charger. The charger can run on 12–24 VDC for mobile applications and 110/230 VAC for stationary ones.
