New WARN Wireless Control System for Powersport Winches
Clackamas, OR (1/1/07) - Warn Industries, the leader in aftermarket powersports performance products, has developed a new Wireless Control System to be used with WARN¬ģ powersports winches. You spoke, WARN listened. This Wireless Control System is designed from the ground up to suit your needs.
This system allows powersports enthusiasts a convenient and versatile option when winching an ATV or UTV. The Wireless Control System includes an easy-to-use, ergonomically designed, handheld wireless control with two long-life alkaline batteries; a receiver with a built-in antenna for the fastest installation; a handlebar-mounted holster for the handheld remote; and all the wiring and hardware needed for easy installation on an ATV or UTV. This quality wireless control system will fit all current WARN ATV and UTV winches as well as all existing WARN winches equipped with a contactor and mini-rocker switch. It will meet FCC, CE and IC standards, too.
Once installed, operation is a cinch. Simply press both of the handheld's large, easy-to-read buttons for five seconds until the LED turns green, signifying the power is on. To begin winching, hold the appropriate button, the winch will activate and the LED will turn red indicating winching is in progress. If the system remains idle for five minutes, it automatically shuts off to preserve battery life and prevent unintentional operation. If your battery becomes low, the LED will begin to flash red during operation so you know to replace the handheld's batteries. The long-life alkaline batteries are expected to provide years of service for even the most frequent users.
The Wireless Control System will still work under any vehicle voltage level that allows for winch operation.
This Wireless Control System is a great accessory to any WARN powersports winch, and gives enthusiasts more options when the trail gets tough.
