The Air8 is an industrial radio remote control system designed for overhead gantry cranes, hoists & other lifting equipment applications. However, as the Air8 is highly programmable it offers a safe, reliable, user-friendly and affordable radio system for a variety of applications.
The Air8 complies with the latest requirements of EN ISO 13849-1 (Safety of Machinery - Safety-related parts of control systems) and provides fail-safe behaviour for both the stop and UMFS (protection against Unintended Movement from Standstill) functions.
The Air8 has Autec’s new automatic channel search function fitted as standard, this allows the transmitting unit to select a free frequency when powered up, and will switch to another of the 256 channels available if interference occurs, whilst not interrupting the operation. This function means that the Air8 has a high resistance to interference removing the need to plan frequency usage and allows limitless radios to operate in the same area.
With a simple pairing procedure between the transmitter & receiver the Air8 system allows for an easy replacement of transmitters, so if purchased as a two transmitter kit any downtime will be reduced to a minimum.
Other functions include: 3 minute timeout, pin sequence to prevent start up from unauthorized personnel, range limited start-up.
The Air8 also boasts rechargeable batteries which can last more than 40 hours from one charge. As with all Autec radio remote system the transmitter is a robust IP65 design and has been dropped tested to 1.5 meters.
