The main function of the Wireless Hand-Held Transceiver is to transmit user commands to the Panel-Mounted Transceiver (PE650) and display the status of the equipment, pool and spa water temperature, pool and spa thermostat set point, heating status and overall communication status. The device can control up to five loads, typically:
- The three loads in the Three-Circuit Clock
- The two relays in the Valve/Pump Switch, usually water temperature controls for pool/spa
- The actuators that switch between pool and spa
The unit floats if thrown in the pool or spa, is water-submersible, shock resistant and requires three (3) AA batteries. Expected battery life is approximately one year in typical use. The Wireless Hand-Held Transceiver (PE950) can only communicate with the Panel-Mounted Transceiver (PE650) and Transceiver Repeater Module (HA04C) and is compatible with no other hardware. In addition, when the components of a specific system are linked together into a network, communication with another neighboring system cannot occur. Up to five PE950 units can be used in a single installation.
