12V Remote Control Switch – 25m RF


In stock


This is a RF (Radio Frequency) 12v Controller, which can operate from up to 25 metres away and the handheld remote controller does not need line of sight with the switch box to switch it on or off.

The Switch is programmable, so it is possible for one remote to control one or several switch boxes. Simply unscrew the switch box, then hold down the red button inside while pressing the ON button on the Remote Controller.

This will reprogram the Switch Box to this frequency.

The Input of the switch box is a 12V 5.5mm socket. The output is a 12V 2.1mm jack plug.

This means it will plug in between a host of electrical items – and if yours does not have a jack plug fitted then it is okay to strip these off and wire it in directly.

The 8 x AA Battery boxes and powerful rechargeable li-ion batteries below, both have 2.1mm jack plugs that plug directly into this unit.

All our 12V EL Drivers will also plug into this remote controller as they have 5.5mm sockets on them to receive power.

We have developed this item for EL Wire but it is not solely for use with EL Drivers and has a range of uses wherever remotely controlling a 12V device is necessary.

The Maximum charge this device allows is 6A which is pretty high for a 12V Device (72W)

This In-line remote control will plug in between any power supply below and a 12v adaptable driver

2) 8xAA Battery Box


This 8xAA Battery Box will plug straight into the driver. It is fairly large (63mm X 58mm X 30mm) but will make an EL Driver portable

3) 3 x 18650 Rechargeable Battery Box


This 3 x 18650 Rechargeable Battery Box will plug straight into the driver. It is fairly large (63mm X 58mm X 30mm) and the leads for the output are 15cm long but will make an EL Driver portable.

5) Mains Powered

6) Car Lighter Adaptor

This adaptor plugs into the car lighter socket. It is fused and ends with a 5.5mm/2.1mm jack plug so it can be used with any of our 12v Drivers or Accessories

Most people also use Splitters that come from the Driver to the EL Wire (so you only need 1 x Driver for many EL Wires) – you can get those types of EL WIRE SPLITTERS HERE
