Remote controlled 12 Volt DC switch
By Amazon Customer
I was a little apprehensive about purchasing this product because of price and no reviews. I liked the product specs because I wanted long range control and high current if needed. The product works great and range is over 200 feet. There was not much wiring instructions but is easy to figure out. POWER IN red wire connects to + 12 Volts DC and POWER IN black wire to - or ground. POWER OUT red wire is the switched +12 volts DC and POWER OUT blue wire is - or ground. When power is applied to the module a red LED on the side glows. There should be no voltage at the RED and BLUE wires measured with a digital DC voltmeter. Push the remote ON button and 12 Volts DC should appear at POWER OUT RED(+) and BLUE (-) wires. Push the remote OFF button and 12 volts at POWER OUT will go off.

A huge time saver and a quality product
By Rick East Branch ny
This is a great alternative when it comes to conventional wiring jobs. I used this for a light bar on my new truck i didnt want have the bother of going thru the firewall etc so used this wireless switch with the quick connects this job couldnt be easier. I would certainly use this again for other projects it is alittle pricier then most but i do like the quality but i will shop it alittle better next time arounf

POLARITY REVERSED (at least on mine)
Ok... I tried to get this thing to work; the remote seemed to light up, but NOTHING from the box. So I seemed to remember reading about polarity. What the heck. I opened the box up and indeed, the box was mislabeled. The POWER IN and POWER OUT were wrong according the actual circuit board inside. So I flipped my wires and it worked fine. A HINT: the TOP of the printing on the label for POWER IN and POWER OUT should go toward the labelled side of the box... or, NOT upside down when the box is placed with the FIMCO label showing// the BLUE ground is the OUT current side, the BLACK is the IN current side.
By the way- it says heavy duty but I wasn't sure. The relay on the inside says 20AMP Just to check I hooked it up to my beekeeping oxidizer with a fused line. 7.5 AMPs burned instantly... no surprise. So I put in a 20 AMP fuse. Tried it twice, and it is working without a hitch. It took the POWER IN/OUT label off and turned it around-other people borrow this gadget.
