Olsbergs new generation radio controllers are launched at IAA 2022 in Hannover – Hiab stand Pavilion 35

After years of intense development Olsbergs launches a new generation radio controllers at IAA exhibition in Hannover together with Hiab. The controllers are marketed under the name of CombiDrive 4 where they are deployed as crane controllers on Hiab’s new crane model HIAB iQ.958 HiPro. that will be launched at the exhibition.

The new generation Olsbergs controllers are designed to meet all requirements an operator can wish for – light but durable controllers which are easy to use even when it is dark outside as they are equipped with lighting for safe operation. The controllers are also designed with strong focus on reliability, ease of use and safety.

Ergonomic design and colour display

The controllers have an ergonomic design with a central display in full colour for system information that can easily be customized with content as desired. Side displays that show available functions distinct and clear for smooth and safe use, no surprises. The levers have a fingertip sense and are of course dual channelled to meet applicable safety requirements. Up to 6 or 8 functions can be operated simultaneously depending on the model.

The controllers have menus for direct navigation between different operating modes via a keypad that is ergonomically positioned to be easily accessible with the thumbs.

Haptic feedback and warning lights

The controls are equipped with flashing warning lights for increased safety in dangerous workplaces. They also have a built-in vibrator as haptic feedback to draw attention to abnormal values. Should the controller be dropped, it is automatically switched off before it hits the ground to prevent possible uncontrolled movement.

As an extra safety measure when operating the crane, there is a patented function where the controller senses the position in relation to the crane’s support leg. In this way, it is ensured that the support legs can only be maneuvered when you have supervision over them.

The controllers communicate via radio on the license-free frequency bands ISM 868 and ISM 915 or via cable.

Strong focus on safety and working environment

The new generation Olsbergs controllers are full of useful functions to facilitate the operator’s daily work and safety. They are powerful tools and secure good and safe working environment and caters for total control.
