Quick USA products, including the company's line of radio remote controls, now bear Federal Communications Commission approval after meeting standards for radio-transmitting devices.

The smallest of Quick USA's radio remote controls (P02) weighs a little more than an ounce and is equipped with two keys for remote windlass operation. The similar model P04 has four keys to control both a windlass and bow or stern thrusters. Each space-saving pocket transmitter measures 2.5 by 2 inches.

Quick USA also offers several larger handheld transmitters, including the H02, with two keys, and the H04, with four keys. The 12-key H12 model gives users the option of programming keys to remotely control such operations as lighting, gangways, davits and bow or stern thrusters. Twelve-key panels can be customized with stickers to identify each button's function.

All handheld models feature silicone back-lighted buttons and non-slip, shock-proof rubber construction.

All of Quick USA's IP67-watertight remote controls feature microcontroller-operated functions and work in temperatures ranging from 5 to 150 degrees F.

Quick USA's remote controls work with the company's receivers, available with two, four, six, eight, 10 or 12 relays. The receiver indicates system operating status, errors and problems through an LED display and protects against polarity inversion and drained batteries.

As many as 50 transmitters can be tied to each receiver, which has a programmable digital filter. The unit also contains a translation mode that permits other receivers to be installed in different spots, all operable through one transmitter.
