The Cattron Group International™ PVS800 Portable Video Remote Control System gives the operator clear video pictures of the work zone even when he is not in visual contact with the equipment. The PVS800 provides accurate and safe control with up to three highly accurate camera inputs.

The high resolution, full color PVS800 receiver’s LCD monitor*, with a 5 inch/12.7cm (diagonal) screen, is a stand alone, self-contained module with an integral battery.

Rugged, lightweight and compact components make the Cattron-Theimeg™ PVS800 ideal for tight locations and the harshest environments. Used in mining (for LHDs, bolters, scoop trams, etc.), chemical processing, law enforcement, surveillance, military, bomb disposal, and many similar applications where direct line of sight is neither feasible nor safe.

*The PVS800 monitor is easily installed on Cattron-Theimeg™ AT16LHD and AT32LHD radio remote control systems or on other manufacturers’ equipment.
