2. INSTRUCTION

The Alpha 4000 series are highly durable, reliable and safe industrial radio remote control systems. The versatile
features of the Alpha 4000 series permit their use in many different remote control applications. The systems
can be used to control factory cranes, monorail systems, multiple hoists, trolleys, mining equipment, building
construction equipment, automatic control systems, and many others.

The system incorporates numerous safety circuits that guaranty maximum security and ensure the system is
resistant to outside interference. The major features of the Alpha 4000 series are as follow:

1. Alpha 4000 series has the automatic shut-off function, when encountering strong radio interference, and
when the transmitter/operator is out of receiving range. The receiver will start the automatic shutdown
function in 0.55 seconds.
2. The system is equipped with highly evolved software that has redundant error checking and correcting
capabilities to ensure 100% error-free transmission, decoding, and control of all output relays. This highly
evolved software includes CRC (Cyclical Redundancy Check) and Hamming Codes (Error Recovery)
programming.
3. The transmitter encoder and receiver decoder both utilize advanced microprocessor control. The availability
of 65,536 sets of unique ID codes will ensure that only commands from the matching control transmitter can
be carried out without any interference from other radio systems.
4. The system also utilizes advanced microprocessor control (watch dog) for data comparison and
crosschecking between the two decoding microprocessors. When fault are detected via this central
microprocessor, for maximum safety, the entire system will be shutdown immediately to avoid possibility of
any accidents occurring.
5. The Alpha 4000 series is equipped with numerous self-diagnosing functions:
 MODE 1 (safe mode): If user in 40 seconds has not operated the transmitter, the transmitter will
automatic shutdown (multiple options by 40 second ~ 60 minutes, also may transmission
continuously and not close power source).
 MODE 0 (power-saving model): Any has not operated the transmitter. The transmitter will automatic
shutdown for saving the power.

Alpha 4000 series includes one receiver, transmitter and battery charger. The major features as follows:
1. The transmitter casings are molded using industrial strength composite materials which are impervious to
dust, water, oil, acids, alkaline, heat and sunlight as well as being resistant to deformation due to long term
use in harsh environments. The pushbuttons are also constructed from industrial strength composite
materials with minimum of up to one million press cycles.
2. Sensor-type battery charging. Metal and open type contact of battery charger provides water-proof and
strong construction of transmitter that fits every kind of environment. It also enables transmitter to charge
simply by putting it on battery charger.
3. The receiver manufactured by metal material to avoid strong radio interference and protect the internal
circuits.
4. Receiver internal circuits and modules are replaceable, such as RX modules card, decoder card, output relay
card and power supply card.
5. The system utilizes PLL synthesized RF transmission. It allows the user to select from 20 sets of frequency
channels best suited for the environment. The frequency channel is selected via simple dip-switch settings
inside the transmitter and receiver unit.
6. The transmitter and receiver both can be designed function at chip card.
7. Base on the system type selected, you may create all kinds of combination with the software to fit
different working environment.

3. SAFETY INSTRUCTION

The following instructions should be strictly followed:

1. Make a daily check of the transmitter casing, pushbuttons and pushbutton rubber boot.
Should it appear that anything could inhibit the proper operation of the transmitter unit, it
should be immediately removed from service.

2. Do not heat the battery or throw it into a fire. Do not touch the gold marking, for instance,
chip card, relay board, RX module and decoder board socket.

3. The transmitter voltage should be checked on a daily basis. If the voltage is low, the battery
pack should be recharged or replaced.

4. The emergency stop button (EMS) should be checked at the beginning of each shift to ensure
they are in the proper working order.

5. In the event of an emergency, push down the emergency stop button immediately to
deactivate the receiver main relay. Then turned the power “off” from the main power source
of the equipment.

6. The transmitter power key should be pulled “off” after each use and should never leave the
transmitter in the power “on” position when the unit is unattended.

7. Never operate a crane or equipment with two (2) transmitter units at the same time with
same frequency channel and ID code.

8. Do not use the same frequency channel and ID code as any other unit in use at the same
facility or within distance of 300 meters.

9. Ensure the waist belt and the shoulder strap is worn at all time during operation to avoid
accidental damages to the transmitter box.

10. When the transmitters and receivers should be repaired or adjustment. Refer all servicing to
qualified service personal. (Do not change parts like transistors, quartz… by yourselves.)
