Laird Launches New Compact, Lightweight Operator Control Unit for Industrial Applications

Laird announced the release of the new CattronControl™ LRC-S1, a compact operator control unit (OCU) for cranes, lifting equipment and other industrial machines. The LRC-S1 has a fixed layout with customer definable control elements. This OCU is well suited for rugged industrial environments. 

The LRC-S1 is compatible with both digital and analog drive systems for cranes and machines and provides the opportunity to upgrade from push button units, without paying for the cost of a fully configurable joystick control unit. Other features include system configuration available via secure wireless TransKey™ (RFID), variety of frequencies for worldwide use, graphic LCD and LEDs for status and feedback along with tandem and multi-transmitter and/or receiver operation. 

The LRC-S1 is ideal for rugged industrial environments with a robust housing made of high impact-resistant polycarbonate resin. This OCU emphasizes safety with advanced dual processor electronics and redundant hardware and software architecture, placing it in a high safety-class. There is also an optional force/angle safety feature that enhances the safety aspect of this control unit.
