The remote control has a range of about 250 meters in open space. Its power is from a slide switch on the side of the transmitter, allowing the safety in the moments before the show.
There is also the possibility to set the same encoding transmission on multiple control units, so that you can manage multiple units with a single remote control. Think, for example to shows with 3 stations launch the same (perhaps several tens of meters away from each other): in this case by setting the three units with the same coding will be possible to control the three locations at the same time in the same way , thus avoiding lay hundreds of feet of wire and thus saving several hours of work.
The test function provides that the terminals, to which it is connected properly a igniter ready to use, it turn on a LED confirmation. In the empty channels, with igniters have already been used, failure or poorly wired, the LED will remain off.
The terminals used (QuickClips) allow the insertion and the perfect tightening of one or more wires. You simply press with two fingers on the outside of the plastic making it then scroll down, insert the wire or wires already stripped within the space that is created between the outer plastic and steel center, and then release the outside. A powerful spring will tighten the conductor ensuring perfect electrical contact. There is no hole where threading of the wire into the central cylinder: the conductor is simply placed vertically between the outer plastic and the metal center at any point. This unit was created to give the opportunity to the Pyrotecnics to ignite their shows even at a distance but on occasions it was impossible to have a cable connection.
This is for the simple fact that having a radio control means less time setting up and dismantling of the show, viewers can prevent any “burning” in the cables, and it is still more convenient to handle in general. Thanks to the evolution that there has been in the field of radio communication is also possible to arrive at considerable distances (250 meters for this unit, for others several miles) managing ignitions in total safety. The transmitters and the control units have an internal code that is set so that it is different for each device, so as to perform shows in the same shooting area without interference problems between the various firing systems in use.
There is also the possibility to set the same encoding transmission on multiple control units, so that you can manage multiple units with a single remote control. Think, for example to shows with 3 stations launch the same effects (perhaps several tens of meters away from each other): in this case by setting the three units with the same encoding, it will be possible to control the three stations simultaneously so equal, thus avoiding lay hundreds of feet of wire, and thus saving several hours of work.
