RANGER 3 System
✓ Off the Shelf System
Our RANGER systems are a dead-simple, cost-effective way to retrofit a wireless remote on a manual hydraulic system.
We couple a linear actuator per valve section with a wireless receiver that drives the actuator directly in both directions, and a handheld wireless transmitter that controls the receiver. You can set, without any special programming tools, the position that the valve strokes to in both the slow and fast mode.
The receiver is fully weatherproofed for the ultimate in environmental and vibration resistance and offers up to a conservatively rated 1,000’ of range. The linear actuator is fully weatherproof as well, and offers 90# of force and a 3” throw with an internal clutch that allows your valve to spring safely back to neutral when it’s not being actively commanded.
This kit includes the following parts:
|Choice of Transmitter||
We offer a choice of transmitters and up to EIGHT sections of control with our systems.
Our MEGA series (P/N: 3B2592A) is the smaller of the three options with thumb joysticks and rechargeable batteries. The MEGA can drive up to four valve sections, and feels like an XBox controller on steroids. One step up in size from the MEGA series, the COMPACT(P/N: 3B259CA) and the 8 paddle Impact (P/N: 3B259GB) radio remotes drives up to eight valve sections, and wears comfortably on a shoulder/neck or belt strap.
|The wireless receiver (P/N: 3B2593B), our LEGEND series, is fully weatherproof for the ultimate in environmental and vibration resistance and offers up to a conservatively-rated 1,000’ of range. There's a graphical display on board along with pushbuttons so that you can set up all your speeds, see real-time diagnostics, and even locally control functions in a pinch.|
|1-8 Linear Actuators||These CAN-enabled actuators (P/N: 1A0014E) provide 90 inch-pounds of force with a 3” maximum stroke, and built in processor for precise control of hydraulic valves. They have an internal clutch to enable freewheeling back to center position when the joystick is released or power is lost as a safety feature, and are fully weather-sealed.|
|Mounting Hardware||This kit (P/N: 1A0018A) is comprised of adjustable linkage rods and clevises for connecting the actuators to the valve handles. The steel bracket is supplied by the installer.|
