With the switching module RC-SM-4, lights and other loads (e.g. motors, pumps, relays) can be switched directly via a channel of an RC remote control.
There are 4 outputs available on the switch module, which can be loaded with a current of up to 4 A. However, the total current of all outputs must not exceed 10 A.
The states of the 4 outputs are indicated by colored LEDs. It is easy to see which of the 4 outputs are currently switched on.
The RC-SM-4 has 15 different switching modes that can be selected via setup:
|1||4-way memory short / long|
|2||2-way memory short / 2-way momentary long|
|3||4-way memory via areas A, B, C, D|
|4||4-way momentary via areas A, B, C, D|
|5||4-way memory via counting (EKMFA – A)|
|6||4-way memory via counting (EKMFA – D)|
|7||Pulse when moving|
|8||4-way light switch single (step switch)|
|9||4-way light switch combined|
|10||Indicator (steering), hazard warning lights, light 1+2|
|11||Indicator (memory), hazard warning lights, light 1+2|
|12||Indicator (automatic shutdown), hazard warning lights, light 1+2|
|13||Indicator (memory), light 1, light 2|
|14||Brake light, light, reversing light|
|15||Flasher, running light|
When the RC-SM-4 is shipped, mode 1 is set in advance.
For modes no. 3, 4, 7, 10 and 14, a proportional control element (stick, slide control, rotary control) is required at the radio, since the RC-SM-4 has to evaluate proportional (stepless) signals here.
In all other modes, a 3-position switch on the radio is sufficient to control the outputs. However, proportional controller can also be used here.
Further information and a detailed description of the 15 switching modes can be found in the operating manual (PDF).
