Hirschmann (PAT) Offers Upgrades
25 March 2008
The TRS 05 wireless system upgrade gives crane owners the flexibility to incorporate wireless sensors into existing hardwired safety and monitoring systems. The upgrade, from Hirschmann (PAT), is compatible with most of the company's systems on hydraulic or lattice boom cranes. The module will monitor up to four wireless sensors at a time and uses the existing console and hardware.
The wireless sensors have an operating range of up to 1,000 feet. Sensor options include anti-two block, load, angle, and wind speed. Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum Technology (FHSS) helps ensure accurate and consistent reception of data and provides additional protection against interference common on construction sites.
The system contains serialized transmitter identifiers that are used to ensure proper operation when other cranes are working in the area. Pre-wired for easy installation, the upgrade is available with an optional repeater or as a stand alone system.
