A pendant station is the primary interface between the crane and crane operator. It is generally a hanging rectangular enclosure holding switches that are activated by plungers which open or close a given switch. Control signals are normally transmitted to the hoist or crane through a pendant cord, however, more advanced wireless radio controls are available. The top of the pendant can either be attached to the hoist itself or to a “floating” pendant festoon system. The “floating pendant” allows the crane operator to control the crane from any position along the bridge.
