ZBEE-RC Radio Remote Control

KASKOD-MTRONIX provides innovative, cost-effective, custom-engineered digital radio remote control solutions.

We offer complete plug-and-play wireless remote control packages custom-engineered for your applications, resulting in reduced engineering and manufacturing costs, improved time to market and enhanced equipment performance.

This diverse product line includes wireless remote control for mobile machine applications operating in harsh environments where dust, cold, heat, dirt and oils are commonly found, in -40°C to +85°C temperature range.

Each radio remote control device utilizes a unique ID code (identity code) ensuring that only the correct portable unit is able to activate and control the matching transceiver. For maximum security each unit is equipped with two RF channels and two processors to enable reliable checking and comparison of data signals, as well as with an automatic emergency stop system that deactivates all device functionality when an unverified data signal is received.

Powerful multipoint-to-multipoint protocol allows one radio remote control unit to control multiple devices or even replace almost any existing wireline RS233/485/422-based data channel application with multiple wireless data channels.

Our custom-designed radio remotes come with your choice of tactile membrane keypads or contactless Hall Effect buttons, can feature encoders combined with graphic overlays that simultaneously function as a user interface and a faceplate for your product.
