Light-weight ergonomic radio remote control transmitter with advanced dual-processor electronics for use on cranes, lifting equipment and machines.
The compact Excalibur is the entry model into the Laird Technologies ct24-class. Hard to believe that this device weighing only 300 grams can move loads weighing tons on cranes and grabbers almost as if they were toys. The Excalibur is not only very small; it also has state-of-the-art-technology. It sets new standards in terms of handling, operating safety and flexibility. And all that at a price which is really excellent value for money.
Hardly any other system of this size offers such a wide range of functions and capabilities. Two transmitter housing sizes are available: With 6 or 8 and 10 or 12 pushbuttons with excellent tactile feedback and an extremely long working life of more than 1 million switching cycles. The range of applications therefore covers everything from light overhead gantry cranes via tower cranes through to dual-hoist cranes or grabbers.
Thanks to the one-piece elastic mat with integrated pushbuttons the Excalibur also defies winds, weather and adverse conditions. It even operates at winter temperatures down to -20°. An integrated pressure element avoids condensation inside the housing, caused by temperature changes.
For the most different kind of applications the transmitter LRC-L1 can be combined with various receivers: ct24, MMCU-4, CCM12.Download the Excalibur Brochure now!

Changing the RF-ChannelIn order to ensure interference-free operation of a radio control system it may be necessary to change the RF-channel locally.
Changing the RF-channel can become necessary due to interference or the fact that a specific RF-channel is already in use. A change of channel can be performed either by reprogramming the TransKey or by reprogramming the transmitter. Reprogramming of the transmitter is performed using the transmitter keypad and requires no additional equipment.
TalkbackBy re-registering the operator receives useful information necessary for his working procedures.
The large displays for cranes and machines become therefore, inapplicable, thus increasing the safety aspect of the operator`s work as his attention remains within his working field.
LEDs and displays show the operator all the information he needs. The display information can be programmed to suit the individual needs of the customer.
Talkback DisplaysVarious displays are available to show the talkback data. Up to 6 line text messages can be displayed on an illuminated 6x16 character display.
Tandem OperationIn the case of tandem operation the receivers can be controlled alternately either via one or two transmitters. One transmitter assumes responsibility for commands via an active request command.
Only by an active release command the receiver is given free and the other operator is able to have access to the receiver again. This option is the ideal soloution where heavy or long products have to be transported simulteaneously by tow cranes operating in tandem.
Pitch and Catch In the case of a pitch and catch operation, the crane can be controlled alternatively via two transmitters. One transmitter assumes responsibility for commands via an active request command. Only by an active release command is the crane given free and the other operator is able to have access to the crane again.
This option is the soloution when different operators at various locations in the area and have to transport loads across large distances.
