Depending on the application, automation systems can incorporate a variety of motion control products, including variable frequency drives, radio remote controls, limit switches, and sensors to designate locations where a crane is programmed to operate. These versatile systems—ranging from simple configurations to the more complex—can be added to existing crane controls or as new installations.
