600DC1 - Universal Wireless Remote Control - Single Electric Motor Operated Salt Spreader | SnowplowsPlus

600DC1 – Universal Wireless Remote Control – Single Electric Motor Operated Salt Spreader

This 600DC1 Wireless transmitter controller and wireless receiver can be used as a replacement for any other wireless controllers built for the same on the market today including Meyer Part #63930, Fisher spreader wireless, Snow-Way, Snow-Ex, or any other brand on the market today.  Most Make/Model of vehicles have the battery charging pin of the 7-prong trailer plug-in activated. Many Chevrolet’s will not have the wire connected and or the fuse not installed for this function. The wire for this may be under the fuse box under the hood or taped to the wiring harness near the brake booster. Install this wire per mfg. instructions and install the proper fuse. If your vehicle is not equipped with the battery charging wire, you may add this by running a 8 or 10 gauge wire from the battery to the terminal on the truck side 7 prong plug as shown in the provided diagram. You must install a 40-amp fuse at the battery. Note 2015 and up Ford F150 and Ford 2017 and up F250,350 trucks do not have live power at the 7-prong trailer plug to operate a spreader, must use Anderson plug quick disconnect. If you do not have proper power and ground to the wireless unit it will not operate. 95% of failures are on the truck side and or failed 7 prong connections, always verify power to the unit as a first step in diagnosing a problem. Simply remove the cover from the receiver unit and press the black button. If the red light blinks you have power to the unit if not it is on the truck-side.

600DC – Single DC Motor Salt Spreaders – Universal Wireless Controller. Replace Your OEM Controller with Wireless. 

Part # 600DC is a wireless receiver and wireless transmitter which converts your single dc motor powered salt spreader such as the Western / Fisher Low Profile Model 500 and 1000 tailgate salt spreader, as well as the Boss TGS1100 and TGS 600 tailgate salt spreader. Also works on  Meyer, Hiniker, Swenson, Snowex or any other single DC salt spreader on the market today. Also used as a variable speed control on all single electric motors up to 1/3hp. Convert easily and use a wireless remote controller that can control all of your existing functions from up to 100 ft away. Plug your Salt Spreader wireless directly into your existing 7 prong plug (most trucks) at the back of your truck to provide a true “Plug N’ Play” solution and the ability to easily move your salt spreader from truck to truck in seconds. Even if your truck doesn’t put out enough power to the back of your truck at the 7 prong connector, easily wire up an 8 gauge power/ground to the back of your truck and plug in with Anderson Plug Quick Disconnects. Even at this price, it’s still cheaper than OEM new wiring and controller, which can cost upwards of $800 for all new parts. That means after you buy our universal salt spreader wireless controller, you can sell your old OEM control box, controller wiring, and control mount and never look back. The wireless controller replaces all of your existing functions including variable speed control. Works with 12V DC Voltage Up to 500′ Range

Safety Features of the 600DC1

The RF-600DC1 Wireless DC Motor Controller provides RPM control for a single, 2 pole DC motor that can output up to over 200 amps for up to 1 seconds and a continuous amperage of up to 80 amps.

The speed or RPM control is performed by providing the user 5 outputs, approximately 1/5 of the maximum motor RPM. The RF-600DC1 also incorporates a full RPM feature (Blast) that runs the motor full speed for 6 to 8 seconds and then automatically shuts off and an E-Stop.
To protect the motor and electronics, the RF-600DC1 has built-in safety circuits. These include:
• Automatic shut down if motor is locked up. How this is done is if the receiver senses a current draw of more than 200 amps at start up for more than approximately 1000mS, the unit will shut down from 1 to 30 seconds.
• Automatic shut off if the current draw does not drop below 75 amps after 6 to 8 seconds. Once again, the receiver will shut down for 1 to 30 seconds. This unit is for 12 VOLT DC MOTORS ONLY.
