Data feedback

– range
– Transmitter signal strength
– Status of the function
– Customized data feedback information and logos on request illustratable

LBT frequency search

When switching on or when switching the frequency, a check is made to determine whether the frequency channel used is reserved by another transmitter. If this is the case, the next frequency channel is checked until it is ensured that the transmitter can operate without faults.
LBT is short for Listen before Talk.

Carrying belt


Practical carrying belt for small hand-held transmitters.

Carrying bag


Practical carrying bag as protection against coarse dirt.

Technologies

Teach-in

The teach-in function enables an optimized utilization of the joystick movement. By setting the min/max values on the transmitter side, the maximum move of the joystick is optimally utilized. As a result there are no longer any dead joystick motions. Even a minimum deflection of the joystick causes the immediate opening of a valve.

Multi-user system

The multi-user system enables radio communication between several transmitters and several receivers. Each transmitter can be optionally operated with several receivers at a workplace and / or vice versa. Provided that this connection is not otherwise used at this moment.

NBB battery system

Nickel metal hydride batteries (NiMH) have a high energy density. The contacts have a self-cleaning design. The NBB battery pack is charged with a high charge current with a NBB charger. This quick charge is thermally controlled to optimize recharging and prevent overcharging.

LBT frequency search

When switching on or when switching the frequency, a check is carried out to determine whether the used frequency channel is reserved by another transmitter. If this is the case, the next frequency channel is checked until it is ensured that the transmitter can operate without disturbance. LBT is shortcut for Listen before Talk.

Data reporting

Visual representation of Operating Range, Transmission signal strength, Status of the machine function and Customer-specific information as well as logos supplemented by acoustic feedback (buzzer can be activated).

IECEx/ATEX

If transmitters are to be used in potentially explosive environments, appropriate technical precautions must be taken. The Planar®-B1 and -B2 EX transmitters have been specially developed and certified for such applications.
