IMPORTANT WIRELESS INFORMATION
Linear radio controls provide a reliable communications link and fi ll an important need in 
portable wireless signaling. However, there are some limitations which must be observed.
•  For U.S. installations only: The radios are required to comply with FCC Rules and 
Regulations as Part 15 devices. As such, they have limited transmitter power and 
therefore limited range.
•  A receiver cannot respond to more than one transmitted signal at a time and may be 
blocked by radio signals that occur on or near their operating frequencies, regardless of 
code settings.
•  Changes or modifi cations to the device may void FCC compliance.
•  Infrequently used radio links should be tested regularly to protect against undetected 
interference or fault.
•  A general knowledge of radio and its vagaries should be gained prior to acting as a 
wholesale distributor or dealer, and these facts should be communicated to the ultimate 
users.
