The SIDEKICK transmitting unit is safe, reliable and compact. It was conceived by AUTEC for applications with a limited number of actuators. The unit has a dual band radio with automatic search of free channel in FHSS (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum) at 870/915 MHz and is very portable thanks to an ergonomic design, extremely reduced weight and an inclined control panel. The STOP function is classified up to PL e, according to EN ISO 13849-1. SIDEKICK has 4 LEDs for visualization of machine status and a data logger for the recording of the commands sequences operated by the remote control. It can also be used for multiple radio control solutions (multi-transmitters, multi-receivers).
