MRF Remote Control Unit is a universal device designed for AtoN remote monitoring, especially for long-range beacons and major lighthouses.

It has multiple digital and analogical inputs and outputs, opto-coupled which may be timed and adjusted at different levels by a configuration software; as well as to configure their logic, being easily adapted to any control system installed into a lighthouse or beacon.

The unit uses different communication modems, depending on the way selected: GSM, radio, AIS, satellite, IP, microwaves, fibre optic, etc.

Although its ideal complement is the NETCOM Remote Monitoring Centre, the communication protocol used is free, in such a way that it is very easy to send the information to any existing platform.
