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 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.
