Features and Specifications
- Super Low Profile.
- Optional Deans Ultra type connectors.
- Simple to install. Requires only one 20mm diameter hole in deck and is retained by a easy to fit nut.
- LED indicator for system status and intelligent battery voltage display. details
- IP67 (waterproof) tactile switch.
- Battery supply range from 5 or 6 cells NimH/NiCd or 2 cells LiFe/LiPo.
- Minimum voltage for RMGSwitch operation - 3.8V. Short term fluctuations below 3.8V can be tolerated without unlatching.
- Unlatching voltage - 1.5V. Voltage below this level will cause the RMGSwitch to unlatch requiring a button press to restart.
- Optional fitting of Deans Ultra type connectors (std Deans wiring configuration).

RMGSwitch-STD connections diagram
The diagram shows Deans Ultra connectors used for battery and winch connection.
These are optional extra which can be specified when ordering.
All connections must be protected against exposure to water.
Do not allow connectors to lay in the bilge of the hull.
Water exposure (salt or fresh) to connectors is the most common mode of failure in the boats electrics.
Switch Operation, Voltage Display and LED functions
- To turn the system on requires only a short momentary button press.
- While the system is on the LED will blink once per second.
- To turn the system off, press and hold the button. The LED will light up continuously for 2 seconds. When the LED goes off release the button before it comes back on at 3 seconds to turn the system off.
- While the system is on, the RMGSwitch continuously reads the battery voltage. The lowest voltage read since the last time voltage was displayed is the voltage to be displayed next. This means that the performance of the battery can be monitored over time. It will show the size of voltage drops due to load on the battery by the SmartWinch.
- To display the battery voltage, press the button for less than one second. The LED will then blink the number of Volts. There will then be a one second pause before the number of tenths of a Volt will be blinked. When displaying voltage the blink rate is 3 blinks per second.
