MOTION CONTROL:Southco® announced the release of the EA-R01 Wireless RF Remote Controller. The EA-R01 provides a durable method of controlling access to multiple locked compartments from distances up to 100 ft. Designed to meet the harsh environmental needs of on- and off-road environments, the EA-R01 features a waterproof potted construction and two sequenced 30A output channels to minimize load on the battery, while operating multiple latch points. Additional features include a light/horn output, simple transmitter programming and labeled connections for clear system configuration.
The EA-R01 allows customers to integrate reliable remote locking and unlocking in commercial, specialty and off-highway vehicles with several storage areas, eliminating the need for manual confirmation of individual secured compartments. The solution supports multiple electronic locks and up to four transmitters. Transmitters are easily added or deleted with a simple pushbutton learn feature designed into the receiver.
The EA-R01 receiver, with its unique potted construction, is waterproof and dustproof to an IP67 rating and able to withstand vibration and temperature variations between -29 to +82C. The design of the receiver provides the added benefit of easy installation into nearly any discreet location on the vehicle and features replaceable fuses at each labeled circuit, allowing for straightforward maintenance. The transmitter is also customizable for color, style and design.
