It's a happy Birthday!

40 years of Never-Stop Technology™

We celebrate and we need your help!

Forty years ago, Björn and Kaj founded Scanreco in a garage in Södertälje, just south of Stockholm, Sweden. They had a vision to make operators’ work situation better and more efficient by putting them to the side of the machine instead of standing right next to it.

Partnering with, and providing heavy equipment and machine manufacturers with rugged and reliable radio remote controls for any their machinery, 40 years later, Scanreco is represented worldwide by carefully selected partners and we have our own offices in multiple locations across the world.

The Scanreco saga wouldn’t have been so successful without a little elbow grease, skilled coworkers and partners, our Never-Stop Technology™ approach, and above all: all the machine manufacturers and millions of operators worldwide using Scanreco systems every day! So, let’s celebrate these forty years together!

WANTED!

Do you have one of these?

Do you have one of the original Scanreco remote controls from the 80’s?
We are in search for the World’s oldest, still in use, Scanreco radio remote control! (And even if you don’t use, it, we’d like to see it.)

Take a picture or a video of it and upload to your social media with a short description and the tag #Scanreco40 (we may contact you to learn more about your application and business)!

We can’t wait to see if there are any 40 year olds still in use out there!

Show us what you've got

We want to see your G2, G3, G4, G5, and G6 remote control applications in action too!

Use #Scanreco40 and be featured on our website!
We may even repost your post in our feeds!

The (not-so-secret) secrets of Never-Stop Technology™ by Scanreco

Protection against water, salt, sand and dust

From fishing ships at sea to agricultural sprayers in the field, Scanreco radio remote control systems are tough and built to withstand water, salt, sand, and dust ingress. Let’s face it, the last thing you want to experience is downtime due to water ingress. That is why the leading OEMs in maritime, agriculture and energy equipment depend on Scanreco for long-lasting remote-control solutions.

  • IP65 or IP67 on all products
  • Sealed circuit boards
  • Carefully chosen materials that withstand the elements

Built to withstand extreme vibration

Mobile hydraulic machines vibrate. Machines like stone crushers, horizontal grinders, and conveyors are MADE to vibrate, sometimes violently. Scanreco is the chosen radio remote control platform for mobile hydraulic machines that have the capability to grind concrete, stone, demolition debris, railroad ties, whole trees, pallets, storm debris, shingles, logs, stumps and even entire glass recycle containers.  With potted components selected for toughness and durability, our receivers sometimes outlast even the machines on which they are mounted.

  • Thoroughly tested for vibration in our laboratories
  • Extensive 3rd party testing
  •  IP65 or IP67 on all products

A minimum of access points

Although Scanreco has been a wireless innovator for nearly 40 years, wired connections for tethered control, firmware programming, control box cabling and antenna extensions are sometimes needed. However, we strive to keep wired connection points to a minimum and have designed and reinforced access points to curtail the ingress of water and dust.

  • Molded seal protections
  • Minimal access to circuit board
  • Embedded physical connections

High-quality components

Scanreco hardware components like joysticks, paddles, toggles, and buttons are designed for near constant use, day in and day out. Our testing facilities in Stockholm, Sweden include robotic usage simulators that activate these individual components thousands of times per day. Rest assured that the controls on  your Scanreco wireless system have the  capability to be pushed, pulled, or switched millions of times during their lifecycles.

  • Carefully selected components
  • Durability tested hardware
  • Replace components without machine downtime

Ergonomic design

Scanreco wireless radio transmitters, both belly packs and handheld units, are designed for operator safety and comfort (plus they look really cool too!). Nearly 40 years of radio remote control expertise and customer feedback has provided us with a unique perspective on the ergonomic design of mobile hydraulic remote controls. In addition, Scanreco-specific accessories enable operators to control equipment safely and comfortably all day long in harsh conditions.  Mini and Maxi options include neck straps, waist belts, and our ultra-comfortable aluminum carrying hook.

  • Ergonomic housing design – change positions as you go
  • Useful accessories made especially for Scanreco products available
  • Work with your distributor or Scanreco point of contact to find the right combination buttons, levers and joysticks for your needs

Wired tether control without batteries

Never-Stop Technology TM by Scanreco is just that: it enables you to finish the job even if your transmitter battery dies. Available only on our Mini and Maxi platforms, you can pop in a fully charged Scanreco battery or run the transmitter via tether cable for as long as you need while recharging.

  • Replacement batteries available through your distributor
  • Operate transmitter via cable
  • Available in 2 meter, 10 meter, and 30 meter lengths

Less downtime with quick fixes and replacements

What sets Scanreco apart from other remote-control manufacturers is our commitment to safety, reliability, ease-of-use, and service. In most cases, Scanreco enables you to replace individual system components and not have to retrofit an entire system. This allows you to:

  • Keep mission-critical operations running without costly delays and lead times
  • Reduce operating expenses
  • Keep spare parts on-hand for emergency replacement

Made for extreme jobsites and weather

Scanreco customers demand functionality with minimal failure in nearly all environments: wet, dusty, humid, salty, and extreme cold and hot temperature. From the frigid North Sea to the dusty Texas panhandle, Scanreco radio remote controls are designed to perform day-after-day.

  • Operational temperatures –25C to +70C (-4F to +160F)
  • IP 65 or IP67 on all products
  • Molded seal protection

Electrical protection

Every job site brings its own unique challenges and things that keep you up at night. Your Scanreco radio remote control should not be one of things you worry about. Although any machine can fail unexpectedly and cause damage to electrical integrations, rest assured that your Scanreco system is built to survive catastrophic machine failures. It may go into hibernation, but it will continue to work.

  • Short circuit protected outputs
  • Transient protection
  • Molded seal protections
  • Withstands electromagnetic interference
