Question:

  

Answer:

Control Mode for Wireless RF System: Momentary, Toggle, Latched and Multiple Control Mode

Wireless RF system is composed of a RF transmitter and a RF receiver that can be used for residential, agricultural and industrial automation. You 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. We have different working range of wireless RF system, such as 50m wireless RF system, 100m wireless RF system, 500m wireless RF system, 1000m wireless RF system, 2000m wireless RF system, 5000m wireless RF system, ect. When you press the button of RF transmitter, it will immediately send a signal to the receiver. The relay will start working after the receiver gets the signal, so the device controlled by the receiver will start working.

But many customers always are confused about control mode of the receiver. Here we will learn the difference about the momentary, toggle, latched and multiple control mode.

In order to meet different applications’ needs, working control mode of receiver is usually divided into momentary, toggle, latched and multi-mode control mode. Popularly said, momentary mode is equivalent to light touch switch, toggle mode is equivalent to the light switch, latched mode is equivalent to the fan gear switch and multi-mode is the mix of momentary, toggle and latched modes.

Momentary control mode

Press and hold -> On; Release -> Off.

Momentary mode means that when you press and hold the button of transmitter, the relay will start to work and when you release the button of transmitter, the relay will stop working. This control mode can be set to control rolling blind, rolling door and so on. You need to press and hold the button of remote to make the blind or door open/close.

Customer: I am interesting of buying one dc 12v receiver and one transmitter with the higher actual distance, the working distance should at least be 500-1000m. I want with one transmitter to control this receiver which is used to control my garage light. I want also only momentary and when I press and hold the button, the light turns on until I release the transmitter’s button and when I release the button of transmitter, my garage light will turns off. Please suggest me a kit for my needs. According to the description of this customer, we recommended him 2000m momentary control kit of 0020144 (S1M-DC12-ANT2 & CB-1).

Set the 1 channel momentary control mode DC receiver of 0020142 (S1M-DC12-ANT2) as an example. For this momentary control mode, you need one button transmitter to control the receiver. we usually choose the transmitter of 0021023 (CB-1) which has one button and the working range of the transmitter and receiver can reach 2000m in an open ground. We can use this receiver with momentary control mode to control light, door, motor, ect.

In the following, we use the receiver of 0020142 (S1M-DC12-ANT2) with momentary mode and the transmitter of 0021023 (CB-1) to control a LED light.

Operation:

When you press and hold the button of transmitter, LED light will turn on.

When you release the button of transmitter, LED light will turn off.

Toggle Control Mode

Control mode Toggle: Press -> On; Press again -> Off.

Toggle mode means that when you press the button of transmitter, the relay will start to work and when you press the button again, the relay will stop working.

Toggle mode is used most often. Controlling lamp, for example, press the button of remote, turn on the lamp; press the button again, turn off the lamp. It can turn on multiple lights/motors/doors at the same.

Customer: I am looking for a DC 12V RF remote control (not in line of sight) for operating a my garden light which is 1000m away. I need only on /off feature. Please let me know if you have a product like that. To control the light with on/off feature, the receiver can be set with toggle mode.

Position 2 lower (turns on compressor) Position 3 Raise (turns on a blower) and Position 4 Drain (turns on a pump). These are turned on individually not all at the same time. The voltage required to power the remote control is AC220V. No current is required to power the devices. The relays are basically open or closed. I would like a 4 channel RF product so I have one channel spare. Can you assist me with what product suits this please.

 

  According to the descriptions from this customer, latched mode will help him for the conversion. Set the receiver S4PU-AC220-ANT3 with Latched mode, then connect compressor to relay 1 in the receiver, connect blower to relay 2 in the receiver, connect pump to relay 3 in the receiver. This remote control kit is composed of a 4-channel receiver and 4-button transmitter that can be used in agriculture automation, industry automation, and home automation. Press button A of the transmitter, the compressor turns on. Press button B of the transmitter, the compressor turns off and the blower turns on.
