Boasting bi-directional communication, the 18R removes the guesswork that exists in most wireless systems by allowing you to check continuity, arm-state, and signal strength directly from the remote. You can feel confident knowing your modules are armed, in good range, and ready to fire from the palm of your hand at any time.

The 18R is safe and simple to use and perfect for small to mid-sized shows, or specialty applications within larger shows such as wide multi-position fronts, the big guns, and finales. Using the 18R, you can manually fire up to 1,800 unique cues across unlimited firing modules.
