1-2. General.
Radio controlled overhead cranes and other material handling equipment operate in several directions. They are large, bulky pieces of equipment that handle heavy loads efficiently at high
speeds. Quite frequently, the equipment is operated in areas where people are working on the
floor below. The crane operator must exercise
extreme caution at all times. Workers must constantly be alert to avoid accidents. The following
rules have been included to indicate how your
careful and thoughtful actions may prevent injuries, damage to equipment, or even save a life. If
radio controlled material-handling equipment is
operated from the cab, special care must be taken
to secure the transmitter. Refer to section titled
Section 1-10. Boarding The Crane for specific
safety rules.
1-3. Persons Authorized To Operate Radio

The operator should be trained in making lifts
below floor level.
The operator should be trained in making side
pulls.
The operator should know how to keep himself
and other people clear of lifts and to avoid
"pinch" points.
The operator should know cable and hook
inspection procedures.
The operator should know procedures for testing
hoist, trolley, and bridge brakes.
The operator should know and follow the local
lockout and tagout procedures.
At the start of each work shift, or when a new
operator takes control of the crane, operators
shall do, as a minimum, the following steps
before making lifts with any crane or hoist:
Test the upper-limit switch. Slowly raise the
unloaded hook block until the limit switch trips.
When checking limit switches the hoist should
be centered over an area free of personnel and
equipment.
Visually inspect the hook, load lines, trolley, and
bridge as much as possible from the operator's
station; in most instances, this will be the floor of
the building.
1-5. Operating Area.
The bridge and trolley brakes should be tested.
On transmitter units equipped with two or more
speeds, use the "lowest" speed when testing
braking devices.
Aisles between equipment, stock, etc., should be
free of obstructions so the crane operator can
move freely. These aisles should be a minimum
of three feet (one meter) wide, or meet local
regulations.
When lifting maximum loads, the crane operator
should test the hoist brakes by raising the load a
few inches from the floor. If the brakes do not
hold, the load should immediately be lowered to
the floor.
Crane operators should always position themselves for the best view of the crane they are
controlling. The crane should never be operated
blindly. The operator should stay as close to the
crane load as possible. Operators should never
position themselves in a "pinch" point.
If provided, test the lower-limit switch.
1-6. Transmitter Unit.
Test all bridge and trolley limit switches, where
provided, if operation will bring the equipment
in close proximity to the limit switches.
Transmitter switches should never be mechanically blocked ON or OFF for any crane motion.
When not in use turn the transmitter OFF. A secure storage space should be provided for the
transmitter unit and the transmitter unit should
always be placed there when not in use. This
precaution will prevent unauthorized people
from operating the crane.
Spare transmitters should be stored in a secure
storage space and only removed from the storage
space after the current transmitter in use has been
turned OFF, taken out of the service area and
secured.
1-7. Operating The Crane.
Test all warning devices.
Test all direction and speed controls for both
bridge and trolley travel.
Test the transmitter emergency stop.
Test the hoist brake to verify there is no drift
without a load.
If any crane or hoist fails any of the above tests
notify the supervisor and lock out and tagout for
repair.
1-7.2. General Rules For Operation.
Consult the crane manufacturer, local and
governmental regulations for complete rules of
operation. In general the following rules apply to
remotely controlled cranes:
1-7.1. Pre-operation Test.
Telemotive SLTX Transmitter Instruction Manual—1/1/06
5
The limit switches should never be used as a
regular stopping device. They are intended to be
protective devices.
Unless required for operator safety, gloves
should not be worn when operating the transmitter unit.
Do not make lifts in excess of the equipment
rated capacity.
All loose materials or parts should be removed
from the load before starting the lift.
The bridge and trolley should be centered directly over the load when the load is raised to
prevent swinging when making lifts.
The crane operator should always hoist lifts high
enough to clear all equipment and workers.
A crane designed for this purpose and only with
supervisor permission should make side pulls.
When a lift is being made, the crane operator
should not be positioned in the line of travel. The
crane or hoist should be operated from a position
either to the side or opposite from the direction
of travel.
When raising or lowering a load, proceed slowly
and make certain the load is under control. Tag
lines should be used for handling unusual lengths
or bulky loads. Remove slack from chains or
slings gradually. Make certain all personnel are
clear before making a lift.
The crane operator should keep all body parts
away from the lift and should never be positioned under the lift.
Do not make a lift or move a load if anyone is in
a location where they could be struck by the
crane or the load.
If the crane operator is being assisted, the crane
should not be moved until the assistant signals
they are clear of the crane and its load.
When a load is hanging from the crane hook and
the crane is being moved, the crane operator
should sound all warning devices frequently.
Loads should not be carried over workers heads.
If a worker is in the path of crane travel, the
crane operator should stop the crane and clear
the area before proceeding.
Runway stops or other cranes should never be
bumped into.
When moving the crane, the crane operator
should be sure that the hook block and attachments or cables would not catch on nearby
equipment. Slings, chains, or cables should never
be dragged along the floor.
The crane operator should never permit anyone
to ride on the load or hook except when authorized by the supervisor.
When another crane on the same runway is stationary with a load hanging, the crane operator
should maintain a safe distance between the stationary crane and the one under their control.
Never leave suspended loads unattended. In an
emergency, if the crane is inoperative and a load
suspended, notify the supervisor immediately,
barricade and post signs on the floor beneath
crane and load.
If power to the crane is removed, the crane operator should turn the transmitter unit OFF and
keep it OFF until power is restored.
If the crane fails to respond properly, the crane
operator should stop operation, turn the transmitter unit OFF and immediately report the condition to their supervisor.
Outdoor cranes, which are subject to movement
by wind, should be securely anchored when left
unattended. If the crane is equipped with bridge
brakes, the parking brake should be set immediately.
1-7.3. Boarding The Crane.
The crane should not be boarded without permission of the supervisor.
The crane operator should turn off the transmitter
and take it with them when boarding the crane.
If more than one person is boarding the crane,
one person should be made responsible for ensuring all personnel are off the crane before the
system is returned to operation.

1-8. Crane Maintenance And Repair.
when repairs are completed.
Qualified personnel must maintain a regularly
(i.e., such as monthly) scheduled crane
inspection. During this crane inspection the
functionality and safety of the crane remote
control must also be tested. The inspection shall
include, but not be limited to items listed in
Section 2-11. Condition of The Radio Controlled
Crane. Consult crane manufacturer, local and
governmental regulations for recommended
inspection intervals and proper inspection
procedures. Problems noted during this
inspection must be repaired before using the
crane or the remote control.
If any hazard involving the repairmen exists
when there is a runway adjacent to the crane under repair, the adjacent runway should be
blocked off as described above. When it is necessary to continue crane operation on the adjacent runways, warning lights must be installed
and be visible to operators of cranes on those
runways. All cranes should come to a complete
stop prior to entering the restricted area and
should proceed through this area only after receiving permission from a signal person designated for this purpose. Access of persons to and
from the crane being repaired should be under
control of the repair crew leader.
Minor repairs include routine maintenance and
repairs such as greasing, cleaning and control
troubleshooting. All other repairs should be considered major. If the repair crew consists of more
than one person, one person should be designated as the repair crew leader with the following responsibilities. If the repair crew consists of
only one person, that person has the following
responsibilities:
For minor repairs, warning signs should be
placed on the floor beneath the crane or suspended from the crane. For major repairs, the
floor area below the crane should be roped off.
When major repairs are to take place, all persons
operating other cranes on the same or adjacent
runways must be notified prior to starting
repairs. Notification should include the nature of
the repair, safeguards provided, and movement
limitations while repairs are in progress.
When practical, radio controlled cranes which
cannot be moved during repairs must be protected against being bumped by other cranes on
the runway. Bumpers should be installed on the
exposed side or sides of the crane under repair.
They should be placed as far away as possible.
The location of these bumpers should be indicated by red lights placed so that they are clearly
visible to other crane operators traveling on the
same runway. When it is not possible to use
bumpers, red lights must be placed so they are
clearly visible to other crane operators traveling
on the same runway to indicate the restricted
travel zone. All crane operators on the same
runway must be informed of the repair effort and
thoroughly instructed to what their operations are
limited to and informed they will be notified
When boarding the crane, the transmitter should
be turned OFF and the transmitter should remain
with the repair crew leader. The leader should
board the crane first, open and lock out the main
switch, and then signal the other members of the
crew it is safe to board the crane.
If work on the crane is to be done in areas not
protected by standard handrails, the repair crew
should wear approved safety belts.
All tools and equipment should be moved onto
the crane by the use of hand lines. The tools and
equipment should be adequately secured to the
hand lines.
If it is necessary to have the crane control circuits energized, all power circuits for crane
movement must be opened prior to energizing
the control circuits.
All personnel and tools should be moved to a
safe spot before moving the crane during repairs.
Headroom is at a minimum in some crane cabs
and on some crane walkways. Caution should be
exercised when boarding or working on cranes.
Hard hats should be worn whenever possible.
When repairs are finished, all personnel, tools
and repair equipment should be removed before
energizing the crane circuits.
1-9. Using The Crane As A Work Platform.
When the crane is to be used as a stationary work
platform, follow all rules provided in Section 111. Crane Maintenance and Repair. When it is
necessary for the crane to be moved from time to
Telemotive SLTX Transmitter Instruction Manual—1/1/06
7
time, the crane operator should board the crane
with the transmitter unit. The crane operator
should ensure all personnel working on the crane
are in a secure position before moving the crane
to the next workstation. It should also be the
crane operator’s responsibility to ensure the main
switch is open and locked down before work is
resumed.
Condition of bridge and trolley stops.
Carbon dust or signs of burning on the covers of
motors.
Indication of fluid, oil or grease leaks.
Condition of rail sweeps.
Walkways require handrails and ladders are
sturdy, and in place, not loose.
Protective guards are in place for all moving
parts.
WARNING
THE CRANE OPERATOR SHOULD NOT ATTEMPT TO REPAIR ANY OF THE ITEMS
STATED BELOW. THE CRANE CONDITION
SHOULD BE REPORTED TO THE SUPERVISOR. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THIS WARNING COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY
OR DEATH AND DAMAGE TO EQUIPMENT.
1-10. Condition of the Radio Controlled
Crane.
If the crane fails to respond properly, the crane
operator(s) should notify their supervisor. When
serious conditions are noticed (conditions that
make the crane unsafe to operate), the crane
should be shut down immediately and the supervisor notified. The following is a list of some of

only).
The access code is set at the factory and should not be changed unless absolutely necessary. If a spare transmitter
unit is used, the receiver unit access code should be changed to match the access code of the spare transmitter
unit. For Part 15 systems the access codes are printed on a white label on the outside of any transmitter and may
be matched to “A” and “B” on the receiver CPU Board without having to open the transmitter housing.
Switch SW2 (B) in the transmitter must match switch (B) on the receiver CPU Board and switch SW1 (A) in the
transmitter must match switch (A) on the receiver CPU Board.
If you are reprogramming a spare transmitter make sure the other transmitter is securely taken out of service.
WARNING

3-3. SLTX Programming Switches.
The programming switch SW3 controls the following features: (These only apply to units originally programmed
to utilize these features).
a.
10K Series SLTX Programming Switches SW3 and SW4 Programming.
i. Transmitter programming SW3.
ii. Positions 1-7 (Keep turned “OFF”).
iii. Position 8 Time-out-timer Disable. (Normally keep turned “OFF”).
The transmitter has an approximate 15-minute time-out-timer. If the transmitter is not used for over 15
minutes it will shut down. This transmitter time-out-timer function is transmitter dip switch selectable.
SW3 position 8 disables the time-out-timer. Turning SW3-8 “ON” disables the time-out-timer.
b. Transmitter programming SW4.
i. Position SW4 1 and 2 Mode Enable. (Standard Mode 1, keep 1-2 turned “OFF”).
Mode 1, SW4 1-2 all “OFF”. The 10K12 single speed system comes standard configured this way from the
factory with three motion controls and six auxiliaries (controlled by the toggle switches). The 10K12 2speed system comes standard configured this way from the factory with three 2-speed controls and three
auxiliaries (controlled by the toggle switches, the rotary is non-functional).
Mode 2, SW4 1 turned “OFF” and SW4 2 turned “ON”. The 10K12 2-speed system configured this way is
able to control four 2-speed motion controls and no auxiliaries. This gives bridge, trolley, main and aux
hoist. The rotary selector switch functions are H1 main hoist, H2 aux hoist and B both main and aux hoist
(the toggle switches are non-functional).
Mode 3, SW4 1 and 2 turned “ON”. The SLTX transmitter will control up to 5 motors using the rotary
selector switch. This mode reconfigures two of the 10K12 auxiliary outputs (Aux 1 and Aux 2) to be
external motor select functions by the rotary switch. In this mode the auxiliary toggle switches Aux 1 and
Aux 2 are disabled. When the rotary switch is in the H1 or H2 position Aux 1 relay or Aux 2 relay will
pull in respectively whenever trolley or hoist lever is moved. When the rotary switch is in B position both
Aux 1 and Aux 2 relays will pull in.

i. Position SW4-3 Disable Tandem for Hoist and Trolley. (Normally keep turned “OFF”).
For cranes with auxiliary hoists and/or trolleys, turning this switch “ON” disables the transmitter selector
switch “B” position (both function) that selects tandem operation of hoist or trolley.
ii. Position SW4-4 Invert Crane Select Aux. Outputs. (Normally keep turned “OFF”).
For cranes that use the select function only, turning this switch “ON” inverts the select function operation
so that the relay closes for the unselected function.
iii. Positions SW-5-7 Extended Crane Control Configurations. (Standard all “OFF”, otherwise see the
appropriate receiver manual).
The 10K12 SLTX transmitter is available with extended crane control configurations. These options are
switch configurable on the transmitter. The eight-position dip switches SW3 and SW4 on the transmitter
can provide all configurations with a single transmitter CPU EPROM for the 2-speed transmitter. See your
receiver manual for available configurations and the switch programming needed to provide them.
iv. Position 8 No Function (keep turned off).
3-4. To Check Data.
1). For data input use Data pin on RF Module.
2). Use RF SW pin on RF Module for External Trigger input.
3). Use TP2 for Ground.

3-7. Batteries and Charger.
Two batteries are available for the Pre-engineered SLTX, a disposable alkaline battery BT120-0 and a
rechargeable 7.2V NiMH (BT122-0). The battery charger for the BT122-0 is the E10759-0. Two piggyback
chargers (E10759-1) can be used with one E10759-0. This will allow three batteries to be charged at the same
time from one power supply. This is the most that can be done at one time. Please see your charger manual for
additional details. Please follow local regulations for the disposal of any battery product.
