Radio remote control for mobile installations is a large and growing segment. This is often for material handling solutions and equipment for trucks, site machinery, trains, ships and other maritime environments. High demands are placed on user-friendliness and ergonomics where radio remote control makes the operator’s job safer and more efficient.
