Reel Tech has released a remote control system for their hose reels. The product is developed for mining and deference applications. The product has increased robustness and is coupled with a Pit Bull™, and is designed for the solution for single-operator applications in mining and harsh environments.
With the addition of the Flat Winder (pat. pend.), hose level technology it becomes a complete hose management system designed for single-operator use. A single operator can activate the push button on the belt pendant and rewind the reel remotely, without the need to walk the hose back to the reel and manually feed the hose for even hose layering and storage.
Another significant improvement includes a remotely mounted antenna for long-range applications in mining, defence, emergency and rescue, agriculture and contracting. The adaptive frequency control technology ensures the signal is not blocked nor interferes with other channels in the area, critical for emergency services and mining applications.
The product is designed to deliver reliably in tough environments, have low-maintenance requirements and long service life, and 150 metres (492 feet) maximum standard capacity.
