Hirschmann Automation and Control (PAT), Chambersburg, Pa., has introduced the TRS 05 wireless system upgrade, which gives crane owners the flexibility to incorporate wireless sensors into existing hardwired systems.
The TRS 05 is compatible with most Hirschmann/PAT systems on hydraulic or lattice boom cranes. The module will monitor up to four wireless sensors at one time and uses the existing console and hardware. Hirschmann's wireless sensors install quickly and easily in the field and 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) is utilized to ensure accurate and consistent reception of data and provides additional protection against interference common to construction job sites.
The TRS 05 contains unique, serialized transmitter identifiers that are used to ensure proper operation when other cranes are working in the area. It is also pre-wired for quick and easy installation and is available with an optional repeater or as a stand-alone system.
