When service meets design

IK3 is our most versatile console box from the Ikontrol range. It is specially used in applications that demand up to 6 proportional outputs and 12 auxiliary mechanisms. Machines such as concrete pumps, knucklebooms and drilling machines benefit from the use of an IK3 on the field.

Features and benefits

Up to 3 joysticks and 6 paddles

The IK3 includes the option of installing 4 auxiliary functions and 2 MO70 joysticks, 3 Hall or Euchner joysticks or 6 MA70 paddles.

Color TFT

3.5” color TFT display with high image quality for displaying feedback information. Possibility of full-duplex communication.

LED panel

The panel of the IK3 and IK4 transmitters has a maximum number of 12 LEDs and can incorporate two side lanterns.  
The face plate design and the number and disposition of the LEDs is 100% customizable. This, according to the customer’s requirements.

Removable EEPROM SIM module

Removable memory card. Quick and easy restoration of service with a spare unit in the event of transmitter or receiver failure. If the transmitter is damaged, the replacement can copy the EEPROM from the receiver. 

Range limiter

The remote can only be used when there is an infrared connection between the infrared transmitter and the radio transmitter. This rules out risk situations caused by activating the remote without a clear and safe view of the machine. 

Twin synchro

The most compact TANDEM solution. 
A system conformed by a master transmitter (Pushbutton or Console box) which controls using radio signals simultaneously. So, the movements of two cranes working in a synchronized way in tandem mode. 

APC (Automatic Power Control)

This technology modifies the power of the radio transmission to minimize battery consumption and interference between nearby pieces of equipment. So, that longer battery life can be provided. And continuity of operations between devices in the same working environment can be achieved, respectively.  

Multi-band radio with full duplex communication

Worldwide compatible multiband radio. Possibility of full-duplex communication. Easily customization via EEPROM. 

LQI (Link Quality Indicator)

The Link Quality Indicator is a metric that indicates signal quality between the transmitter and the receiver. Three possible quality levels of the link are displayed by means of an icon: low, medium or high. In addition, the icon flashes to warn the user about possible interference. This functionality is available for the whole range of I-KONTROL transmitters (IK2, IK3 and IK4). 

Inclinometer

Used to detect an unusual, high transmitter angle. It allows a number of intervention modes: 

  • Activate the transmitter buzzer 
  • Disable all radio remote functions or only those considered necessary
Multiple transmitter systems

Possibility of working with multiple transmitters and a single receiver. The first device to link up assumes control of the machine. 

LBT (Listen Before Transmitting)

On transmitter start-up, the radio remote equipment will automatically look for a free channel. If another user activates a radio remote device on the same working channel, the transmitter can simply be switched off and on again. This is to find another free channel and allow work to continue.

Tandem systems

For situations requiring the use of two or more independent cranes moving simultaneously. The master transmitters can choose whether to work simultaneously with several receivers or independently with one of them. 

Multiple receiver systems

Possibility of working with a single transmitter and multiple receivers at the same time. 

Tether connection

Tether connection between the transmitter and receiver as an alternative to radio connection. In the event that radio control is not permitted or there are no charged batteries, the radio remote can be used with a wired connection between the transmitter and receiver. If a wired connection is used, the transmitter is powered by the receiver.
