Presentation

The Harmony eXLhoist range of wireless remote control systems provides complete innovative crane operator control solutions to help improve machine and crane operator efficiency, protect people and equipment, and reduce installation and maintenance downtime.

The XARS remote control system is a combination of remote control device (or transmitter: XART) and base station (or receiver: XARB), which transmits commands and information from the operator to the machine and vice versa by wireless transmission.

The XARS system offers movement in 3 directions (for example: hoist, bridge, and trolley) at 2 speeds (low and high) for each movement.

The 2 modes available in the system are:

  • Single mode: The remote control device controls one base station.

  • MBC mode[1]: The remote control device controls 2 base stations simultaneously.

Radio Communication

Each base station has a unique identification code[2] managed by Schneider Electric. The radio communication frequency is 2.4 GHz and automatic frequency hopping allows up to 50 systems to run at the same time in a 100 x 100 m/328 x 328 ft area.

eXLhoist Configuration Software

Free software with a graphic user interface can be downloaded by the customer to configure the remote control station. This software has a standard Windows® interface. The configuration file is password protected and can be used to configure the following parameters:

  • Base station pairing to the remote control device

  • Relay-pushbutton assignment and interlocking

  • Access and restart sequence

  • Standby time-out duration

  • Machine number assignment

Environment

Degree of protection:

  • IP 65 for the base station

  • IP 65 and NEMA 4 for the wireless control device

Product certification:

  • For the base station: UL/CSA, CE, EAC

  • For the wireless control device: UL/CSA, CE, EAC
