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’.

Description

The largest model in the new PocketEvo® series has 10 buttons, which can be 1-, 2- or 3-step or stepless, depending on customer requirements. In addition, the integration of various additional operating elements such as up to two rotary switches and lateral buttons is possible without any problems. This makes the PocketEvo® magna suitable for even the most complex applications.

Thanks to the patented SMP technology, all keys can be replaced by operators themselves in just a few minutes. Without special tools, each button can be unscrewed individually and a new one inserted. The robust special housing remains closed at all times, so that no protective measures against soiling have to be taken.

Downtimes of your system are additionally reduced to a minimum by the integrated CDC key. Because if the transmitter needs to be replaced, the new device can be connected to the receiver and put into operation in just a few minutes. The CDC key is removed from the old device and inserted into the new one.

For optimum protection against dirt and impact, a special housing was developed for the PocketEvo®. The integrated, all-round protective rubber coating in conjunction with the glass fibre reinforced plastic core ensures that all electronic components can withstand extreme external mechanical influences. This means that the PocketEvo® can be used in particularly harsh environments without any problems.

The jury of the Industry Prize was also convinced by the radio remote control, so that they awarded the PocketEvo® the “Industry Prize 2017”. The prize is awarded to particularly progressive industrial products that have a high economic, technological and ecological benefit. The PocketEvo® was awarded the “BEST OF” rating.

Compact, handy and easy to use, the PocketEvo® button transmitter allows you to work in complete safety conditions without reducing the effectiveness of machine operation.

Technologies

SMP

The Surface Mounted Push-Buttons (SMP) are form-fit integrated into the PocketEvo® series housings. In the event of service, the operator can easily replace a broken button himself on site. The housing does not have to be opened for this purpose, so no protective measures against soiling need to be taken. [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.

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.

Radiokey

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.

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).
