This extended-range hand-held remote transmitter is designed for use with the latest GLA-CU-X3 remote control system and is only compatible with X3 type receivers. If you have a GLA-CU-X2 receiver then please see the previous version here, or for older GLA-CU-X, GLA-CU-20 or GLA-CU-12V devices please contact us for fixed-code versions of the transmitter.
Please note that we also have a 5-button hand-held remote version. Once our current stocks of the 3-button version run out, we will only stock the 5-button version.
The X3 system has security improvements over older versions, making it one of the most secure RF controllers on the market.
The higher-power transmitter circuit of this device allows for operation at up to 200M away (line of sight range, the range is reduced when operating through walls or objects). When planning locations for your transmitter and receiver bear in mind that metal (electrically conducting) objects or surfaces in particular tend to block RF signals, so avoid having these between the two devices.
Each hand-held remote is supplied with a transparent wall-holder, as pictured.
More information is provided below.
The remote is constructed from a tough plastic body 120x44x15mm in size. It features three buttons, two for forwards and backwards travel of an actuator (or for clockwise and counter-clockwise rotation of a DC motor) denoted by engraved arrows, and one square button in-between them for stopping. A blue LED at the top of the remote (pictures show red but these are now supplied with blue) provides indication of when a button is pressed.
The remote transmits at 433MHz and takes a single cylindrical A23 12V battery for power (one is included inside each remote, ready for use).
