Products / Wireless Crane Control


Wireless crane control from anywhere on your vessel, an adjacent dock or even another vessel alongside your own.

Why limit yourself to a fixed control station? With state of the art wireless technology and a true marine-grade hydraulic valve, Maximum Performance Hydraulics provides you with the ultimate in convenience, safety and versatility.

Standard Features:

  • Fully proportional control of all functions
  • Programmable MIN and MAX for precise speed control

Designed for rough service in a marine environment, the MicroControl remote terminal has an IP66 rating.  The Base Unit has a NEMA 4X rating and can safely be mounted on deck. The operating frequencies of the MicroControl wireless system are unaffected by the signals normally found onboard vessels including electronic equipment such as radios, radar and sonar.

Each time a function is operated, an electronic ‘signature’ unique to each system is sent from the terminal to the base unit, preventing unauthorized operation even if the interference is on the same frequency.
