FLEX JX General Features

Transceiving RF modules

The Flex JX system is capable of two-way communication between the transmitter and receiver.

LCD Readouts

All settings and system status information are displayed and executed via the LCD screen on the transmitter and in receiver.

Goretex Vent

The transmitter is equipped with special Goretex vent to guard against water/vapour build ups inside the transmitter enclosure.

Transmitter Tilt Function

The transmitter is embedded with special tilt switch to guard against accidental crane movements when the transmitter is dropped or tilted beyond a certain angle (user programmable).

Infrared Startup and Range Limiting Functions

The transmitter is standard-equipped with infrared sensors for functions such as the infrared system startup and infrared range limiting operations.

62 User Programmable Channels

Advanced synthesized RF controls with 62 built-in channels set directly via the LCD screens.

Automatic Channel Scanning Receiver

The receiver is able to search and lock onto the newly selected transmitter channel.

Over One Million Unique ID Codes (20 Bit)

Each Flex JX system has its own unique identification code, never repeats.

Advanced Controls

The Flex JX system utilizes dual advanced microprocessor controls with 32 bit CRC and Hamming Code, providing ultra fast, safe, precise and error-free encoding and decoding.

Unique I-CHIP Design

The I-CHIP functions similarly to a SIM card. Information and settings can be transferred between transmitters without the hassle of resetting the spares.

Reliable Joysticks (digital & analog)

The in-house designed joysticks are rated for more than five million operating cycles. The defined steps provide positive feedback even wearing gloves. The unique design also provides easy switching between digital and analog outputs.
