Saves time! Saves labor! Increases efficiency

The Crane Boss® II system handles as many as four five-speed or stepless reversing motors with all motions simultaneous and in any combination. Two and Three axis joysticks are also available. A single Crane Boss® II digital command link can also control many auxiliary functions such as magnet lift-drop, lights on-off, interlock latch-unlatch, signal sounding, brakes, etc.

The Crane Boss® II system is simple to operate. The transmitter unit incorporates a large, easily-operated control levers or joysticks for each crane motion. Moving the lever in either direction from the neutral position moves the crane in that direction. The “Start” button is depressed to sound a warning signal and energize the main line contactor. All function control levers return to the neutral (dead-man action) when released and motion stops. Fail-safe features are used throughout the circuitry. There are four LED indicators that can be configured for your application.
