Digital Remote Control for Truck-Mounted Concrete Boom Pumps
Putzmeister has upgraded its previous analog-based HBC-Radiomatic remote control system with a new digital Radiomatic AFM 727 model on its entire line of truck-mounted concrete boom pumps. The new radio allows for increased transmission capacity, resulting in minimal interference on the jobsite.
Unlike the previous model that required manual frequency changes, the new digital remote control has an automatic frequency management system, eliminating guesswork for the operator and allowing them to easily operate the boom pump remotely.
“Not only is the digital radio easier for the user to operate, but it also significantly decreases interference on the jobsite, allowing for seamless remote operation,” said Robert Stein, electrical engineer for Putzmeister.
