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.
