    Electronics experts industrial remote control,

    Soo we have a very expensive whole tree chipper that has a few remote control functions that some one lost the remote for.There is a new and very expensive box on its way from good ol usa.My question is when it arrives is there a way of measuring frequencies and producing a learning remote the same way you can a tv remote cheaply as a back up?

    Will need a few more specs to make comment... ie what type of remote system, freq, etc... manufacturer etc...

    Could be easier to rewire receiver to a known one
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....

    i repair industrial remotes for access equipment etc. they are generally repairable (unless they have been run over by a forklift)
    the chances of "cloning" one is very slim though

    Couldn't you use an oscilloscope on the transmitter to measure the frequency of each channel?

    Would imagine making a clone remote would be very application specific though?

    you would use a frequency counter for that, but its the encoded info on the carrier signal thats the issue. could be analog, digital or pulse code modulation (sort of like morse code)

    Made here. Reverse engineering a single item is mucho costly. Because you still have to recover your costs but only have a single item ( or 2) to spread that cost over

    So from a quick look, it's a 12 channel digital remote with N O/C outputs, no variable/analog/proportional outs.

    I would have thought something would be available (need to replace receiver maybe)
    What is eye watering expensive on the original part? Ie what's the cost.
