We got fed up with the state of key fob remotes that are out there. Either the housings are thin, cheap, and prone to break, or the wireless range on them makes your garage door opener look good. The MICRO key fob transmitter changes that. We took the same radio module that we use in many of our other high-end systems, and shrunk it down to fit in a keyfob size without sacrificing a single iota of performance. It's molded out of the same glass-filled nylon as our other handhelds for extreme durability, and like the others has as an integral textured grip along the sides. It has a membrane keypad on the face with either 3, 5, or 8 function buttons (plus power), and it's the best one that we could have manufactured. The buttons have a high level of "clicky" tactile feedback, and are highly embossed so you can feel them easily, and get a good action on the button. We even managed to carry over the status LED's for feedback! Couple that with the fact that ALL of radios include two-way communication by default, and you have the ability to monitor, command and control all aspects of your machine in the palm of your hand.
Like all of our other products, the remote key fob uses all high-spec SMT electronics, and these remote key fobs are durable at any temperature – arctic or equatorial. Thirty hours of actively transmitting operating life is a typical minimum with our lithium-polymer batteries, and the MICRO remote control key fob charges via a common micro-USB port, so you're not locked into a proprietary charger.
We love designing these into new OEM applications and bringing out some of the other hidden features, but we also recognize that sometimes a guy just needs a remote quickly. We keep several flavors of the MICRO in stock all the time to get you up and going for a simple one-off project, or a fast proof-of-concept. We’re happy to help get you in to the right one.
