LBT frequency search

When switching on or switching to another frequency, the system checks whether the frequency channel used is occupied by other transmitters. If this is the case, the next frequency channel is checked until it is ensured that the transmitter can operate without interference. LBT is the abbreviation for ‘Listen before Talk’.

Design as cable desk

RF radio transmitter
For radio-critical work areas, the control unit can be supplied on request, not as a transmitter but as a cable console with the same functional equipment.

Practical carrying system

Waist strap
(NBB-No.: 3.320.1000)


The compact design and low weight allow the Planar-V8 to be carried sideways. The surface allows different integration options between toggle switches, potentiometers and a mushroom switch as emergency stop according to EN ISO 13849-1.

The replaceable AA cells used for the power enable maximum performance. Thanks to the charging contacts integrated in the transmitter, they can be charged quickly and easily in the appropriate charging cradle.

Optionally, the Planar-V8 can be equipped with LBT (Listen before Talk) technology. This technology ensures that when the transmitter is switched on or when the frequency is changed, a check is made to see whether the selected frequency channel is already occupied by other transmitters. If this is the case, the next channel is checked until it is ensured that the channel is free and the transmitter can operate without interference.



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. [More info]


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. [More info]

NBB battery system

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. [More info]



The safety risk is significantly reduced using the RADIOKEY. Here a defined range is available for the crane or machine operator in which the remote control system can be activated. As a result, unwitting or inadvertent activation of the transmitter is excluded and the receiver is not sent any control information. [More info]

LBT frequency search

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. [More info]

Data feedback

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). [More info]
