FLEX Eco General Features

Advanced Controls

The Flex ECO system utilizes advanced microprocessor controls with 32 bit CRC and Hamming Code, providing ultra fast, safe, precise and error-free encoding and decoding.

Over One Million Unique ID Codes

Each Flex ECO system has its own unique identification code, never repeats.

62 User Programmable Channels

Advanced synthesized RF controls with 62 built-in channels set via push-buttons and dipswitches.

Wireless Remote Pairing Function

System information can be transferred wirelessly between two transmitters or between a transmitter and a receiver without the hassle of resetting the spares.

Ultra Reliable Push-buttons

The transmitter push-buttons are ultra durable and reliable for more than one million press cycles.

Durable & Rugged Enclosures

All enclosures are made from industrial strength nylon and fibreglass composite materials, not ABS plastic. All housings meet the IP66/NEMA4 requirements and are highly resistant to dirt, liquid, acid, alkali, grease and oil penetration. The receiver enclosure and output cables are UL94-V0 rated.

Compact & Lightweight

The ergonomically designed transmitter and receiver enclosures are extremely compact and lightweight for easy operation and installation.

Unique Mounting Bracket

The receiver mounting brackets are uniquely designed for easy mounting and dismounting.

Low Power Consumption

The transmitter requires only two “AA” alkaline batteries with more than 100 hours of operation.

Abundant Programmable Functions

All functions and settings are easily set via push-buttons, dipswitches, jumpers, and in-house designed programmer unit. Customized functions can also be added upon request.

Full System Compatibility

The software and hardware are fully compatible regardless of model type, minimizing spare parts inventory.

Pre-wired Output Cable

A pre-wired cable is standard equipment on all Flex ECO systems.

Pitch & Catch Operation

This standard-equipped function allows two operators controlling from opposite ends of a crane or equipment.

Tandem Operation

This function allows one operator controlling two cranes at the same time via a 3-stage A/B/A+B rotary select switch.

Random Access Operation

This function allows three operators randomly controlling three cranes on a first come first served basis.

Multiple Receivers Operation

This function allows one operator controlling up to ten receivers or equipment at the same time.

Labels & Accessories*

The Flex ECO system is standard-equipped with legends, lanyard, vinyl casing, receiver mounting bracket, and output cable. *Special magnet mount, belt clip, waist belt, rubber guard, miniature indicator light and buzzer are optional.

Worldwide Approvals

The Flex ECO systems are fully tested and certified in accordance with the FCC Part-15 Rules and European Safety Standards, such as the EN 60204-32 and EN 13849-1 Category PLd.
