Product Overview

The new Side-Power designer radio remote control is the coolest addition to thruster controls. This is a plug-and-play addition to any existing Side-Power thruster system allowing more functional use of the equipment. Focused on user-friendliness by ensuring optimal ergonomics, ease of use and a high safety level. It retrofits easily with Side-Power thruster systems and most windlasses. A key feature is the clear boat shape in the design, eliminating the chance of misunderstanding directions when moving freely on boat. It incorporates the Side-Power unique safety features protecting against unintended activation of thrusters. Illuminated buttons with soft lighting makes use of the remote at night convenient - and it comes with both a snapin holder and a neck strap with snap-off safety. The new shape of the remote and locking holder enables troublefree operation of the remote whilst in the holder - it doubles up as an additional fixed control station. The new radio remote control is waterproof, has large rubber buttons and the defined ridges between the buttons makes it easy to use without looking. Rubber pads on the back prevents it from sliding around, leaving scratches on polished surfaces.
