Manufacturing radio remote controls since 1962
Futaba has been designing and manufacturing radio remote controls with exceptional quality and features since 1962. In 1982, we expanded our markets when a major boom truck manufacturer solicited Futaba and asked if we could apply our radio frequency (RF) technology and expertise to control the boom on their trucks. We successfully developed a custom radio remote control system tailored to their application for the boom and hoist mechanisms.
Since then, we have developed numerous, custom, RF products for industrial original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) as well as a standard product line of industrial-grade radio remote controls. We have expanded the breadth and depth of our product line to include not only multi-channel manual radio remote controls (referred to as telecontrols), but also spread spectrum technology wireless data communication systems (commonly referred to as wireless modems or radio modems).
Telecontrols can be used in a multitude of applications

Our telecontrols can be used in a multitude of applications, some of which include sensor telemetry and controlling switches, actuators, valves, pumps, motors, variable speed drives, gates/doors, and a variety of material handling equipment like cranes, hoists, lifts, booms, conveyors, etc. Our wireless modems can be used to implement wireless sensor networks and for communication within data acquisition systems.

They also permit data communication with with automated guided vehicles (AGVs), programmable logic controllers (PLCs), computer/direct numerical control machines

(CNC/DNC), point-of-production terminals, handheld terminals, bridge cranes, crane scales, and other equipment in factory automation and material handling applications. We feel one of our primary competitive advantages that insures our leadership in the market and the long-term reliability and quality of our products is that we design, manufacture, and service all of our products within our own facilities. Our main production facilities for the industrial radio remote control product line are located in Taiwan. However, some products could be manufactured at our facilities located in the U.S. depending upon the design and requirements of the customer.
state-of-the-art RF design technologies
We have designed and manufactured products employing a wide variety of state-of-the-art RF design technologies that were either required to meet the demands of our customers or the emerging requirements of the market. Our wireless data communication system products, which utilize spread spectrum technology, required sophisticated design techniques. To develop these products, we designed custom chip sets and developed proprietary algorithms and software.
We are always interested in developing products for OEM applications that are tailored to the customer's requirements, and offer a full range of custom product development capabilities.

We are proud of, and confident in, our design, engineering, and manufacturing skills as well as the rapport we have developed with our customers and the reputation we have for excellent customer service and support. We invite you to contact us with your ideas and product requirements. We look forward to discussing solutions for your wireless data communication or radio control needs.
