Frequently Asked Questions

What is tethering?

Tethering is an alternate way for the Miratron transmitter to communicate with its receiver. With machines that move from job to job it is possible to end up in an area that is flooded with radio signals.
The tether cable allows the machine to be controlled even when radio communication is impossible.
If replacement transmitter batteries cannot be found the tether is also an emergency source of power to the transmitter. Tethers use a communication method that is immune to noise so lengths of hundreds of feet are possible. Standard lengths are 10, 25, and 50 feet.
Tether communication is a method of pairing a transmitter and receiver, see learn/pair.
