The Electrification and Controls Manufacturers Association (ECMA) Industry Group of Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA) announces the publication of the industry standard, ANSI ECMA 15: 2010: Specifications for Cable-less Controls for Electric Overhead Traveling Cranes.
This specification was developed to promote standardization and provide a basis for equipment selection. The use of this specification should not limit the manufacturer but should provide guidelines for technical procedure.
ANSI ECMA 15:2010 is directly referenced in CMAA Specifications 70 and 74 and users considering controlling overhead traveling cranes via remote/cable-less/wireless devices are encouraged to obtain this specification in conjunction with obtaining the 70 and 74 CMAA specifications.
