Remote Control Beacon

Ignite Light in Beacon by Remote Control

In ancient time, beacon is fire or smoke which is made in the beacon tower to alert fellow soldiers for military purpose. Nowadays, beacon is usually built at the dock or located on the water to help guide navigators to their destination for safety purpose. If you were the beacon tower administrator, did you think about remote controlling of light in beacon tower? Someone said,“I’m looking for a system which can remotely control (200m max) ignition of a beacon in 24 V dc”.

We recommend him the model of single channel 24V power output RF remote (S1X-DC24-ANT2 +1CB-2). Single channel is for one device. 24V direct power output can supply power directly to the device which is controlled. User can turn on/off the receiver with transmitter (remote control) from any place within a reliable distance; the wireless RF signal can pass through walls, floors and doors. The receiver, which mounts long range magnetic antenna, pairs with long distance transmitter to reach to 2000m in the open field.
