RANGER Bellypack Systems overview

Bellypack RANGER Systems

Product page: RANGER Remote Control Systems for Hydraulics 

Our belly pack RANGER systems are a simple, cost-effective way to retrofit a wireless remote on a manual hydraulic system with 4 to 6 axes of variable speed control.

The package is supplied with electrical actuators to stroke the valves in both directions, and all hardware to connect the actuators to the valve handles or linkages. The actuators are connected to the receiver with a premade harness.

The belly pack RANGER is fast and smooth; it responds in 0.05 seconds and feathers all of the crane functions. Installation is simple with our illustrated manual.

Four or six proportional paddles control the winch and boom, and additional toggle switches drive the auxiliary functions and boom speed selection. There is a key switch mounted on the side for turning the transmitter on and off, as well as starting the engine. Side-mounted, sealed pushbuttons are used for increasing and decreasing the engine RPM, as well as for the horn. Enable buttons are on the transmitter and are required to be pressed in order to operate the crane, as a safety feature along with the Emergency Stop switch. The belly pack transmitter has the ability to run over an included tether cable in the event of a dead battery, and all functions can be manually controlled on the receiver/control box, or even using the manual levers.

Kar-Tech’s radios are proven safe and secure. The CAN actuators that control the valves are fast and precise to 0.01” with 90 pounds of force. They are environmentally hardened for all weather. An internal clutch allows the local operation of the valve handles without any effort when not in active wireless operation. This control is tough – all electronics are silicone dip-coated or encapsulated, every switch, joystick, and the enclosure is sealed, and the transmitter is molded out of a high-impact rated plastic ready to take a beating on a job site. If you need additional functionality, custom configurations are available by request.


Each Bellypack RANGER System includes the following components:


PACKER Series Radio Transmitter

The PACKER transmitter is molded out of a high-impact plastic that’s durable from -40 to +185F (as are all components, including the electronics!). It contains switches for winch speed, boom speed, and two for basket leveling (or use them for an auxiliary function).

It has either four or six fully-proportional paddles for smooth control of your winch, boom elevation, boom rotation, and boom extension. The six paddle version adds paddles for upper and lower boom elevation and extension, normally for knuckle-boom cranes. There are the enable horn, and RPM pushbuttons, an E-Stop switch, and a three-position key switch for power and engine start – just like your car.

It runs off of internal rechargeable batteries that provide approximately 20 hours of operating life between charges. A high-quality padded shoulder strap is included.


Radio Receiver

This radio receiver module directly drives the actuators, crane switches, and all engine functions with two simple plug-and-play front-panel mounted sealed connectors. It provides all outputs based on transmitter commands. The ARM-powered receiver is housed in a sealed polycarbonate enclosure with industry-standard sealed Deutsch connectors. All I/O are protected against reverse battery connections, transient voltage spikes, short circuit, and overload.

The system has an on-board backlit 2×16 character display for easy setup and configuration, manual backup, diagnostics, calibration, and histogram, driven by four sealed pushbutton switches. In addition to driving the actuators, it has multiple outputs for various throttle control types, and outputs for engine start, engine stop, horn, and basket tilt (or auxiliary). RS-232 is on-board for configuration as well.


12/24V Linear Actuators

These CAN-enabled actuators provide 90 pounds of force with a 3” maximum stroke and built-in processor for precise control of hydraulic valves. They have an internal clutch to enable freewheeling back to the center position when the joystick is released or power is lost as a safety feature, and are fully weather-sealed.


Bellypack RANGER Mounting Hardware Kit

Mounting Hardware Kit

This kit is comprised of adjustable linkage rods and clevises for connecting the actuators to the valve handles. The steel bracket is supplied by the installer.


Pre-Made Wiring Harness

This pre-made harness is designed to snap into each system component for an effortless installation with two sealed toggle switches for left and right pedestal remote power. All wires and connectors are labeled for easy identification. All sealed connectors are used, and cables are loomed together where required for a clean, plug and play installation. Crane connections such as RPM, horn, etc. are terminated in flying leads.

Handheld RANGER 3 Systems overview

Handheld RANGER 3 Systems

Product page: Handheld RANGER Systems

Our handheld RANGER systems are a dead-simple, cost-effective way to retrofit a wireless remote on a manual hydraulic system.

We couple a linear actuator per valve section with a wireless receiver that drives the actuator directly in both directions, and a handheld wireless transmitter that controls the receiver. You can set without any special programming tools the position that the valve strokes in both the slow and fast mode.

The receiver is fully epoxy potted for the ultimate in environmental and vibration resistance and offers up to a conservatively rated 300’ of range. The linear actuator is fully weatherproof as well and offers 90 lbs of force and a 3” throw with an internal clutch that allows your valve to spring safely back to neutral when it’s not being actively commanded.


Each Handheld RANGER System includes the following components:


 

Choice of Transmitter

We offer a choice of transmitters and up to three axes of control with our handhelds.

Our MACRO series is the larger of the two options with real pushbuttons and rechargeable batteries. One step down in size from the MACRO series, the MINI radio remote has over ten years of proven success in the field. Our MICRO is a budget choice with a membrane keypad and smaller size, but with all of the same performance.

Each transmitter is configured with independent in/out buttons for each axis and a high/low-speed switch to choose how fast you stroke the valve.


Radio Receiver

The wireless receiver, our VC-134, is fully epoxy potted for the ultimate in environmental and vibration resistance and offers up to a conservatively-rated 300’ of range.

It’s overpowered for our industry – running on an ARM processor with tons of horsepower.


12/24V Linear Actuators

These CAN-enabled actuators provide 90 pounds of force with a 3” maximum stroke and built-in processor for precise control of hydraulic valves. They have an internal clutch to enable freewheeling back to the center position when the joystick is released or power is lost as a safety feature, and are fully weather-sealed.

Benefits of Eagle Signal’s CT4 SERIES

by Haleigh Rozier | May 22, 2018

Eagle Signal manufactures electronic timer, electromechanical timer, and other devices. Within the electromechanical family is the HQ4 series of percentage timers. Percentage timers are a type of repeat cycle device that is compact and long-lasting. The HQ4 series is a unique timer that can function as an on delay, off delay, interval timer or repeat cycle device. Eagle Signal offers this accurate, economical, enclosed timer for a wide range of applications. Specifically, those where repetitive ON times of a fixed cycle requires adjustability. This series is a panel mounted unit with an exposed dial. The load relays’ seal protects against the environment. The HQ4 proves to be durable in industries such as chemical, feeding, irrigation controls, electric heaters, and motor controls. Recently, Eagle Signal developed an improved version of the HQ4 Series called the Cycl-Time® or CT4 Series.

CT4 series cycl-time percent timer/

The CT4 offers improved features including resolution, potentiometer, ease of setting, torque, safety, sealings, and wiring. Also, the Cycl-Time®’s resolution is more defined. For example, the colors of the faceplate offer more contrast for reading the time settings. With 100 ticks around the dial rather than 50, the CT4’s percentage options are more precise than the HQ4. The torque of the Cycl-Time® dial is more resistant to change than before. Once the timer is set, it will not rotate any further without intentional force from the user. These features combine to make the timer more accurate and easier to set. Safety is always the greatest concern when designing any product. The Cycl-Time® has a plastic guard over the terminal block to protect the user’s fingers from exposure to contractors. This percentage timer is ideal for applications environmental factors would usually cause concern. These features provide a longer lasting product and additional safety. The wiring and electrical connections of the HQ4 was also updated for the CT4. It now has four electrical connections, rather than seven, all in a straight line on the back of the body of the timer. As mentioned before, this timer is made to panel mounted. Eagle Signal continues to design the most accurate, economical, and reliable products in the industry. The HQ4 and Cycl-Time® Series are both exceptional devices fit for their specific applications. Cycl-Time® proves to be a respectable replacement option to the HQ4 Series.

Magnetically or RFID-coded safety sensors provide contactless security for doors, hoods and flaps

For any machine requiring a fixed guard-door or cover, the YSR series ensures reliable state monitoring (door open or closed). Thanks to their serial connection capability, YSR types are particularly suitable for applications using multiple sensors, such as long packaging or assembly lines. These RFID-coded devices are classified type 4 according to ISO 14119.

RFID technology enables the user to assign a unique code to each sensor and actuator system, which greatly reduces the risk of tampering. YSR sensors can also be connected in series via the OSSD output and inputs, allowing up to 30 sensors to connect with just one relay or controller.

Since each sensor can provide individual feedback, it is possible to identify which guard-doors are open and which are closed. This is particularly useful when many sensors are connected in series.

The YSR series is part of a range of non-contact safety sensors used to monitor guard-doors, hoods or covers. Thanks to non-contact switching and coded RFID communication, the service life of these compact sensors is very long. Housings are ECOLAB-approved and rated to IP6K9K, making them suitable for washdown applications.

Safety level is category 4 according to ISO 13849-1.
