Why you have to use a wireless solution?
To grant safety, comfort and reliability in a context of change where the human component remains the absolute protagonist.
FROM WIRED SOLUTIONS TO WIRELESS SYSTEMS
The use of cable control has accompanied the operation of most of the work with machinery since its inception. These solutions, not really suitable to possible interruptions due to local factors such as walls, floors, doors etc., are very reliable with a greater connection than wireless. However, the wired solution has always represented a significant cost and a physical limit of operability in situations and construction sites that are difficult to reach.
With the use of functional safety standards for the creation of command and control systems, the impulse to use wireless systems has received an important push compared to wired solutions.
This push initially led to a great availability of devices from all over the world on the market, with increasingly competitive costs. Those who had to choose a radio control on the market, however, found themselves confronted with an offer that offered devices very different from each other in price and characteristics, which theoretically offered equivalent characteristics but then in practice they were distant in terms of circuits and component quality.
The lack of an ad hoc regulation thus led to an offer on the market of very different radio controls in terms of components and performance, with repercussions on both the operation of the machine and the intrinsic safety of the device itself.
A LEGISLATION TO ALIGN THE SECTOR
To improve such an unclear situation, the intervention of the major organs responsible for the implementation of technical standards in the electronic, electrical and telecommunications fields has given clarity and improved the sector.
There are several rules which have followed one another and which have led to greater protection for all concerned, thus allowing better and safer products to be “found” on the market. Companies have therefore started to produce devices equipped with buttons and controls capable of meeting the various needs and capable of guaranteeing operator safety.
The spread of wireless radio controls has thus received significant growth in the domestic and industrial fields after channel regulation. From the application sectors such as crane lifting and overhead cranes where the use has developed more immediately, it has subsequently expanded to very different sectors such as cable transport, heavy industry, logistics to touch the agro-forestry sector just to name a few some.
A further facilitated push over time up to the present day has been given above all by the lower cost over the years of the devices, by the ever greater applicability of the devices in the most diverse fields, by the improvement of the weight and the components, by the possibility of creating devices tailored to the different applications / sectors and the improvement of operating comfort (distance-safety).
COMFORT, RELIABILITY AND SAFETY
Limits of visibility and maneuver, intrinsic risk of the activity and the difficult to reach the work areas, can represent a significant problem with wich workers have to deal every day both in outdoor construction sites and inside factories and warehouse. In this activities, a human-machine interaction is still a central component ad it is important to find solutions that can improve reliability and safety to preserve the operator’s safety, guaranteeing greater visibility , room for maneuver and operating comfort.
Digitalization and smart solutions: an ongoing transformation
The advent of the digital technology is transforming and affecting many aspects of every day. This change is also profoundly redesigning the architecture and management systems within the markets. Materials, software, connections and technologies, combined with the greater interest in the environment, are transforming and modifying methodologies and timelines by redesigning and establishing profound changes within the various sectors. Innovation, digitalization and use of data, in addition to the attention of the environment matters, today represent a minimum common denominator.
A LOOK TOWARDS THE HORIZON
The digitalization of processes and control, the safety and protection of people and the circular economy are some of the most important and interesting points that various sectors from here onwards, companies will have to take into consideration to improve the performance of machinery and processes in the reference work environment with projection towards the future to respond to the market.
The directions are traced, human will still do his part by combining his skills, his experience and his creativity with the support of the machines in a mix that will thus allow to speed up the processes and further increase safety and performance in the various sectors.
It will therefore be essential to share and involve all the stakeholders in the entire value chain in order to be able to guarantee and best respond to needs in order to minimize the impact both in the environment and in the processes.
A HUMAN-SIZED SOLUTION THAT MARRIES THE CHANGE TAKING PLACE
In a so fast moving context characterized by the advent of digital, the radio control sector has also undergone some changes. An evolution that has received a boost especially in recent years where new technologies have further improved its applicability.
From the first large, bulky devices with few functions characterized at times by poor communication stability, we have moved on to lighter, more comfortable devices with many functions, designed for the numerous applications and for the different needs of the operators.
In this context, the constant at the base has always remained the human component; a component that has characterized Remdevice’s corporate choices since the beginning, aimed in providing products and solutions capable of creating a continuum between man and machine.
