New Radio Remote Controls

Metreel have extended their range of crane control equipment to include the NEW T-Series Radio Remote Controls providing a superior solution to traditional wired control systems.

The T Series Radio Remote Control is designed for wireless control of cranes & hoists and other industrial machinery. Using RF communication with univocal code, our T Series controllers provide reliable operation at all times even in ‘electronically noisy’ environments.

Removing the need for a cable connection between the pendant controller and the machine, provides greatly improved freedom of movement to the operator, leading to increased productivity and efficiency and, more importantly, an increase in operator safety.

Having an operating range of up to 100m*, 111 channels and quick and simple installation, the T Series offer a cost effective and extremely efficient means of providing accurate wireless control.

The compact and lightweight handheld transmitters are available with 3, 5 or 7 buttons plus Emergency Stop. They are rated to IP65 so can be used in a wide range of environments and in temperatures from -20C to +70C. All units conform to community directives R&TTE 99/05/CE and LVD 2006/95/CE.

*Please refer to our technical brochure for further information.

26 April 2017


Metreel exhibited at last weeks Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Event at Farnborough for the first time. The show was a great success for us where we were exhibiting our range of MET-TRACK® Workstation Cranes. We also officially launched our NEW CraneBUILDER™ crane design and quotation service.

The diverse visitor turnout far exceeded our expectations with the 3 day show generating huge interest from end users to OEM’s from all areas of industry.

We are extremely pleased with visitors’ repeated comments on the ‘simplicity’ and ‘ease of use’ of the MET-TRACK® design - one of the reasons this particular product stands out from the competition.

The launch of the NEW CraneBUILDER™ service offered visitors the opportunity to have a crane system designed and quoted within minutes with full approval drawings emailed directly to them for consideration over a coffee!

We would like to thank all those who visited us.
