Crane Dynamics Technology (CDT™ & CDTplus™) Radio Control Remote System

cdt banner

The Stellar® CDT™ and CDTplus™ (Crane Dynamics Technology) Radio Control System is a proprietary collection of revolutionary, industry first features that control, power, and monitor Stellar® cranes.  The Stellar CDT & CDTplus is a combination of a handheld integral capacity alert communication system, a crane boosting feature, and the ability to function in safe mode.  Utilizing over molded rubber on the edges and hand grip, this transmitter offers ultimate protection for the heavy use demands of our customers.

CDT™ Remote and Transmitter

Specifications
The new Stellar® CDT™ equipped line of cranes offer the most compact wireless radio controller in the industry. The controller has all the crane functions operated by toggle switches and a proportional control trigger. It also includes an engine start/stop button, a compressor start/stop button, and an emergency stop button. The compactness of the controller allows for easy single-hand operation, flexibility to the operator to position themselves in an ideal operating position, and a heavy-duty magnet to place the controller in a convenient location when not in use.

 

Handheld Capacity Alert. 
Stellar CDT equipped cranes are the first in the mechanics crane market to offer integral capacity alert into the handheld controller displayed on an LCD screen.  This system alerts the operator of increasing loads before they encounter encounter maximum capacity.  This alert is performed by visual and sensory indicators built into the Stellar handheld controller. In addition to the LCD notifications, the cyclical vibration increases frequency in the handheld controller to insure the operator operator is aware of the approaching maximum capacity

Crane Boost System. 
The crane boost system on Stellar CDT equipped cranes is also an industry first. Through the use of proprietary technology, this new system allows operators who encounter a maximum capacity situation to productively operate by effectively increasing crane capacity to nearly 118% of its normal operating mode for a short period of time. (Boost Mode not available on all crane models)

Enhanced Safety System. 
Stellar CDT equipped cranes feature an enhanced safety system.  If a device intended to monitor the capacity of the crane operates incorrectly, the crane will put itself into safe mode.  Safe mode will allow the operator to work with the crane at a reduced speed until the safety device is in proper working order.  The crane will also communicate to the operator if an overload safety device fault is detected.

CDTplus™ Remote and Transmitter

Specifications
The Stellar® CDTplus™ control system is EXCLUSIVE TO STELLAR and features a handheld transmitter with an over-molded rubber bumper system to maximize durability while keeping it lightweight. The new LCD display features operator feedback including real time load capacity, maximum distance with the current load, boom angle, and percentage of load. The boost feature allows a momentary increase in the capacity of the crane, and a Safe Mode to keep the crane and operator safe should a load indicating device fail to operate correctly. The new Stellar CDTplus remote handle features a rechargeable battery and an in-cab docking and recharging station.

Crane Boost System. 
The crane boost system on Stellar CDTplus equipped cranes is also an industry first.  Through the use of proprietary technology, this system allows operators who reach maximum capacity to productively operate through that situation by effectively increasing crane capacity to nearly 118% of its normal operating mode for a short period of time.

Enhanced Safety System. 
Stellar CDTplus equipped cranes feature an enhanced safety system. If a device intended to monitor the capacity of the crane operates incorrectly, the crane will put itself into safe mode. Safe mode will allow the operator to work with the crane at a reduced speed to finish the job and store the crane until the safety device is in proper working order. The crane will also communicate through the LCD screen to the operator if an overload safety device fault is detected.
