N e w Portable Transmitter Provides Emergency Shutdown Control

—Literature Available John B. Smyth, vice president, Ederer Unitec Division of Ederer Incorporated (Ederer and Washington cranes), recently unveiled a new product said to provide improved safety, reduced potential of environmental damage, increased productivity and reduced maintenance and repair costs.

This small portable transmitter, operating on a UHF radio frequency encoded with a highly secure digital signal, is capable of stopping and starting various types of equipment, valves, conveyors, pumps, automated chemical processing lines, robots, electrical apparatus as well as opening and closing gates and operating signals.

According to a company spokesman, this system can improve the operating safety of chemical plants, oil and gas transferring from shore to ship and ship to shore, bulk material handling in port grain elevators and ship loaders by allowing the remote, and therefore faster and safer, shutdown of various pumping, conveying and/or processing machinery when an unsafe or emergency condition occurs.

The transmitter is contained in a high impact ABS and nylon composite case 3.5 inches by 7 inches by 1.75 inches, and weighs approximately two pounds including its rechargeable nicad battery. The receiver is approximately 4.5 inches by 8 inches by 10 inches and weighs only 10 pounds and can be installed most often in one hour.
