The R15PL_KEYFOB Universal Key Fob allows users to control relays by a simple push of a button through a key fob you hold in your hand. The
key fob can be used for simple on/off actions or configured for more complex actions with each button press.
It's Got Possibilities
The R15PL_KEYFOB can be paired with up to 40 key fobs, allowing for multiple people to have fobs to control the relay. KFX
modules reach working distances of 750 feet - line of site!! If you need multiple boards, each key fob can be paired with as many boards as needed.
You Configure the Action
When a button is pressed on the Key Fob, the KFX Receiver will send the command to the board. You will configure what this command is!
It can be a simple toggle on/off command or complex commands including delays. Momentary commands can easily be configured with button
press and button release events. Push a button and the relay energizes, release the button and the relay de-energizes.

Easy Key Fob Control
If your application requires you to control a relay from a wireless remote control, then our Key Fob Relay boards will offer the most powerful solution available on the market today. Not to be confused with single function low-cost solutions, our Key Fob Relay boards are years ahead! Configure your Key Fob Buttons to control relays in just about any way you can think of!
Key Fob Range
The rated range of the MS series Key Fobs is 750 feet (228 meters). The MS 8-Button Key Fob with an external antenna is rated at 1,000 feet (304 meters). Key Fob range can depend on many factors. The maximum ratings are achieved in an outdoor environment with clear line-of-sight and minimal radio interference (in the country).
This board is equipped with a KFX Module. The KFX communications module adds key fob capabilities to the board. The KFX module is powered from the board. The board itself will require 12 volts of power and can be hard wired or you can purchase a "wall wart" type Power Supply at checkout.
Up to 40 Key Fobs
With a single KFX receiver module, users may associate up to 40 key fobs, including 1, 2, 4 and 8-Buttons (available at checkout). Every Key Fob paired with a KFX Receiver will perform the exact same function as another Key Fob paired with the same KFX Receiver. It is not possible for each remote to be separately identified and generate different data for. Put simply, every remote does exactly the same thing when paired with the same KFX Receiver.
Key Fob Configuration
The KFX Receiver Module is configured using Base Station Software (a free download), and must be plugged into the ZIGMO Configuration Board only during configuration. Only one ZIGMO is needed regardless of the number of KFX Receivers you intend to use. The ZIGMO acts as an interface between your computer and the KFX Receiver, allowing you to define the Baud Rate, and Data Bytes that are transmitted for each Key Fob button Press. The ZIGMO is included with the KFX Integration Kit and available at checkout. Key Fob Configuration
Configuring the Buttons
When configuring the button pushes you are really configuring the KFX module with the commands that will be sent to the board. When the module sees a button push it sends the command it has stored. You will configure what command is sent using Base Station Software a free download. It can be a simple toggle command or complex commands including delays. The KFX Receiver can be configured for button press and button release events.
Pairing the Key Fob & Module
The key fobs will need to be paired to a specific module/board. Each module can be paired with up to 40 key fobs. Since the key fobs are paired to a specific module/board you can have multiple key fob boards within range and they will not interfer with each others operation. A great feature if you need multiple boards in a small area and each performing a separate task. Multiple key fobs can be paired to a specific module/board and multiple boards can be used without interfering with each other.
Who’s Qualified to Use the Key Fob Series?
Some computer skills required. The Key Fob Relays do not require programming, simply configure the module with the included Base Station Software. While programming is not required and simple functions can be done rather easily with basic computer skills, complex events can be configured which will require some understanding and patience.
Perhaps the most overlooked aspect of relay control is proper handling of inductive loads. Inductive loads can best be defined as anything with a magnetic coil, such as a motor, solenoid, or a transformer. Controlling a inductive load using this relay controller requires the use of induction suppression capacitors. The purpose of this capacitor is to absorb the high voltages generated by inductive loads, blocking them from the contacts of the relay. Without this capacitor, the lifespan of the relay will be greatly reduced. Induction can be so severe that it electrically interferes with the microprocessor logic of our controllers, causing relay banks to shut themselves down unexpectedly. In the case of Ethernet devices, customers may experience loss of communications until the device is reconnected. Capacitors that we offer are available at checkout, for more information view our Induction Suppression Video.
Key Fob Relay
In this tab we'll take a look at the board design itself. The Key Fob ProXR Lite series controllers are machine manufactured for a highly accurate and reliable design. Fully tested before they leave the production facility each Key Fob Relay is ready to stand up to rigorous demands from heat, cold or vibration. The best test of all is the numerous boards in the field from customers all over the world in all sorts of conditions. Take it from us, these controllers will hold up!
This board is a ProXR Lite board and cannot be expanded. There is also Analog to Digital inputs on the board that will not be used with the Key Fob configuration.
Full ProXR Enhanced Firmware Installed
This board has ProXR Firmware installed that responds to the full ProXR Command Set - it's just not expandable. These commands can be used to configure each button the the key fob to correspond to a relay on the board. Press and release commands can be configured allowing for a toggle (push a button to turn on the relay, push again to turn off) or momentary (push a button to turn on a relay, release a button to turn off) actions. More complex actions such as delays can be configured as well.
SPDT Relay Installed
This device has SPDT relays installed. SPDT Single Pole Double Throw Relays have three connections - Common, Normally Open, and Normally Closed. When the relay is off, the common is connected to the normally closed connection of the relay. When the relay coil is energized, the Common swings over to the Normally Open Connection of the Relay. You can wire the device you are switching to either the Normally Open or the Normally Closed position.
Key Fob Relay boards are designed for long life, you should expect to get years of service from your controller and literally 2-million cycles from the relays on board. With a 5-year warranty and a money back guarantee you have nothing to loose! Place your order now, while everything is in front of you.
This board is led free and RoHS Compliant. If your requirements are for RoHS compliant parts this board is manufactured with RoHS compliant led free parts and solder.
Break-A-Way Tabs for a Smaller Design
The ProXR Lite relays have a great feature where space is a premium - Break-A-Way Tabs. The Break-A-Way Tabs allow most boards to fit in an optional undrilled plastic enclosure. Snap off the Break-A-Way Tabs and you have a controller with a smaller profile when you need to fit in a tight space.
30-Day Warranty/Money Back Guarantee
ProXR Lite series controllers are guaranteed against manufacturing and functionality defects for a full 30 days! Not to mention a 30-day money back guarantee! If for any reason you are not happy with a relay purchased from Relay Pros, simply return it within 30 days and we will give you your money back! Controllers that are damaged by our customers will not of course be warranted under any circumstances.
The boards sold are brand new units shipped from our office conveniently located in Missouri. These boards are completely tested before they are released for shipping With so many boards on our site it is impossible to stock boards, please allow two to three days production time for your order to ship.
