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 to 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# 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.
|Choice of Transmitter||We offer a choice of transmitters and up to three axes of control with our handhelds.
MACRO series (P/N: 3A3022A) is the larger of the two options with real pushbuttons and rechargeable batteries. One step down in size from the MACRO series, the
MINI (P/N: 3A3024A) One step down in size from the MACRO series, the radio remote has over ten years of proven success in the field.
MICRO (P/N: 3A3025A) Is our budget choice with a membrane keypad and smaller size, but with all of the same performance.

|1-3 Linear Actuators||These CAN-enabled actuators (P/N: 1A0014B) provide 90 inch-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.|
|Mounting Hardware||This kit (P/N: 1A0018B) is comprised of adjustable linkage rods and clevises for connecting the actuators to the valve handles. The steel bracket is supplied by the installer.|
