The L0WR Longwall Shearer handset is an intrinsically safe (Ex ia) radio control handset providing membrane-style push buttons for radio remote control of mobile mining equipment.

Using the side strap - the unit can be comfortably held in one hand; providing access to control buttons from a single thumb.   The internal
re-chargeable battery provides up to 16 hours of continuous use between re-charge cycles.

An internal motion sensor provides customisable safety shutdown options - such as console drop, console tilt or sudden impact shock.

Pempek’s two-way radio control technology also offers options for collecting and storing machine data while the machine is being controlled.

The data is collected at the end of each shift by the charging station.  Data is then available for machine reporting and performance analytics.

The L0WR model has been customized specifically for controlling longwall shearers.

The L0WR features control labels in English.


Radio Remote Control Console is an intrinsically-safe, hand-held radio remote control handset; designed for remote control and monitoring of mobile mining equipment.

The console features a bi-directional radio data link supporting 2-way communication with the control system fitted to the mining machine. The communication link allows operator key press commands to be sent to the machine for control. The communication link also provides a pathway for machine data to be sent back to the remote console in real time.

A built-in data logging facility allows machine data and console diagnostics to be recorded during the operating shift. This logged data can later be extracted at the surface and used to develop reports on mining production and machine maintenance records.

There are several variants of the L0WR console, each of which has been developed to match a specific type or model of mining machine. Each L0WR model is fitted with a printed keypad membrane that matches the control functions of the machine that it was designed for.
