Columbus McKinnon Corporation announces the availability of Flex Fit™, the Company’s latest wireless radio control for mobile hydraulic applications. Offered in flexible designs with numerous programmable functions, Flex Fit is ideal for applications using on/off or “bang-bang” hydraulic controls. When compared to restrictive, hardwired pendants or stationary consoles, Flex Fit wireless controls help improve operator mobility. With wireless controls, operators are not tethered to equipment and are therefore free to move away from machinery and potentially dangerous situations while keeping equipment running efficiently.
Flex Fit systems are packaged with a transmitter and a receiver, which are quick and easy to replace in the event a component is dropped. Spare transmitters can be put into operation immediately, greatly reducing the amount of time equipment is inoperable. Wireless pairing capabilities allow information and settings to be easily transferred between two transmitters or a transmitter/receiver system. This reduces the time it takes for new systems to get up and running and minimizes inventory of spare parts.
