Remote Operating Station

Remote Operating Station.

The twenty-first century alternative to the traditional cabin on a crane is remote operation. A multifunctional electronic desk, camera-based visuals and ergonomic controls support both effective work and a pleasant user experience.


A Remote Operating Station (ROS) features the same controls as an operator's cabin. The ROS uses monitors showing realtime camera views, along with crane and process related information. It means the cranes can be driven from a distant control room away from the crane operating area and without a direct line of sight to the crane. Fitted with the latest Konecranes technology, the Remote Operating Station provides a safe, fully-functional and comfortable working environment. User-friendliness increases process flow and productivity.


Customer benefits

• Improved operator safety and working conditions. The location of the control room can be based on the plant’s needs instead of the crane's needs.
• Save on building expenses as there is no need for an operating cabin on the crane, so there are no walkways or platforms to the cabin, either.
• All cranes can be operated from the same place without the need for crane-specific operator cabins
• Cameras allow a line of sight to locations where it is not normally easy to see the crane or its load.
