Industrial applications - Remotus Jupiter - ctl00_cph1_image

Remotus Jupiter is Åkerströms’ standardized remote-control product line. These rugged, reliable products are developed for most of today’s cranes and overhead cranes and for other types of machine control. They’re used, for example, in manufacturing, steel works, mines, and metal and processing industries.

Remotus Jupiter Era
Remotus Jupiter Era is the name of the latest member of the Remotus family. The Jupiter Era waist transmitters have a modern, rugged design. They have rubberized handles for a good grip and they also stand firmly on their protective metal feet when not in use. The Jupiter Era handheld transmitters have a modern, ergonomic design, clear display, and LEDs near each button that indicate the selected function. The Era models are lightweight and easy to carry.

Dual CPUs for superior safety

Jupiter Era waist transmitters have dual CPUs, which means superior safety, even with movements/functions. They have an active stop function, which means the receiver will stop in less than 100 ms. The waist transmitter has a built-in tilt function, which means that it stops if you fall. The system uses the general frequency bands at 433-434 MHz. A user can maneuver several objects from the same transmitter (multi-crane operation), and several users can maneuver one object from several transmitters (multi-operator operation). A duplex function enables data transmission back to the transmitter.

Configurable display with alarm function and a unique battery solution

The Jupiter Era 100/150 have a large, clear display that is easy to read, even in bright sunlight. The transmitters also have a vibrator and buzzer, which can be individually configured to different alarm events via the display menu. The display’s backlighting can also shift to red with different alarms that can be chosen from the menu. The waist transmitter has a unique battery solution where the battery is well protected from water and dust in a replaceable module whose opening is located directly below the transmitter. The transmitter can be placed in deep water without affecting the battery.

Easily configured and functional

Configuration of button functions, frequency, shutdown time, and permanent/temporary functions is done from the pushbuttons or display. Jupiter Era waist transmitters can also be configured via our proprietary configuration tool. A configuration information module (CIM) card stores the Jupiter transmitter’s configuration. The transmitter’s configuration can thereby be easily moved to another transmitter. The CIM card is secured during operation but is easily accessible for service.
The safety stop function in the Remotus Jupiter is certified according to PL d, Cat 3, EN ISO 13849-1.
