Cranes Radio remotes are a primary form of control on today’s construction cranes. Operators can see the load moving in real time and get a corresponding display. They are typically compact, shock resistant and lightweight. Scissor and Aerial Lifts Fixed control units typically feature large rubberised joysticks/positioning paddles alongside oil and watertight pushbuttons. Special attention is paid to functional ease of use for gloved operators and visibility in changeable light conditions.

Forklifts Modern forklift operator panels often feature data-entry key-logging keypads and membrane controls. They typically have embedded interfaces that link them with the larger system through serial communications. Container Lifting (airport/freight) Container handling is an important industry, particularly at airports and transport hubs. Operator controls are used inside and outside the vehicles. EAO designs intuitive and easy to use controls, ensuring the containers are placed in the most precise, safe and efficient manner.

Heavy-Duty Vehicles Heavy-duty vehicles require combination interfaces - resistant, non-tactile keypads inside with rubberised side-of-vehicle control panels. Special attention is paid to ergonomics, visibility in changeable light conditions, and functional ease of use for gloved operators. Portable Wireless Controls These controls allow the operator to freely move around the crane, maintaining load visibility at all times. Units must be light, comfortable to wear, and very durable. Wireless technology is a normal requirement.
