Security for your production line
Emergency radio control for manual mode

Radio emergency control
In consequence of the wide range of components, manufacturing plants and transfer lines with programmable logical controllers have the tendency to corresponding failures. High deficiency costs are arising out of long down times.
A fast manual radio control shortens the dead time of production plants and eases the maintenance.

For quick start-up and for rapid correction of failures, the lines must be able to be manually operated in disturbance range. The radio remote control is transmitting the corresponding switching functions to the PLC - the time consuming cable routing is to be dropped. The radio remote control replaces an existing, hand actuated, wired control unit. Instead of the hand actuated stationary control unit, the base transceiver station is plugged in and is immediately ready for operation - Thereby dead times are reduced considerably.

Tried and trusted in applications.
By the use of wireless connection to the PLC, we have at any time, at any place, feedback about process status, about facility status and are able to intervene quickly, if necessary. This is increasing flexibility and economic efficiency.
The on-site display saves lanes, eases communication and provides like this more lucidity and transparency of the system - the entire facility management is improved that way.


Further advantages of STK:

  • handy, lightweight, robust
  • freely programmable
  • simple to operate
  • minor installation effort
  • flexible adaptation to various requirements
  • short-term modifications are easy to realize
  • decrease of start-up times
  • fast access on failure search and removal
  • minimization of down times - increases the availability of the system
  • prevention of faulty charges


Our mobile radio equipment is operating on a particular frequency with short wavelength. In this way, faulty operations by radio interferences are excluded. An automatic switch-off inside the radio receiver is providing for additional security.
As an insurance against unauthorized use, the radio control unit is equipped with a key switch. A further protection will be effected by programming of the PLC, implementing codes for manual and automatic operations.

Due to the fast and flexible handling for industrial manufacturing facilities, the STK I and STK II are applicable to all lines of business.

For over 12 years, MEL is the leading producer of wireless control units. Since that time, our process radio remote controls are in action at industrial concerns, among others at Eisenmann, Daimler Chrysler, Audi, Miele Dynamit Nobel, Pöttinger, Krone...
