Radial produces a number of products that may be controlled via remote switches. This includes the Radial JX44 guitar and amp switcher, the SW8 multi-channel backup switcher, Firefly tube direct box and the Relay AB balanced output selector. The following remote switches may be used to remotely control some of the functions. Please consult the using pages on the web site for details.
Radial JR1-L and JR1-M Single Footswitch
The Radial JR1 is a single action footswitch designed to remotely control a function such as selecting A or B outputs. As a passive device, it does not require any power to make it work. Instead, it employs a simple mechanical switch that shorts the positive with the ground using either ¼" or XLR connections. The JR1 is available in a 'L' latching version that requires pushing on and pushing off the footswitch to sort and release the contact, or a 'M' momentary version that shorts the contact when depressed, and releases as soon as the switch is released.

Radial JR2-DT Dual Remote Desktop Switch
Part No. R800 2091 00
The JR2-DT is a desk-top version of the JR2. It features two top-mounted activator switches to control AB and Mute functions. These functions may change depending on the Radial product being connected. The JR2-DT connects to the device using a choice of XLR or ¼" TRS connection and standard balanced cable. The JR2-DT also derives its power from the Radial device, eliminating the need for local power. It comes with both an isolation Pad for 'free placement' and a Velcro strip to attach to a desk top, work surface or flight case. An optional L bracket enables the JR2-DT to be permanently mounted to a podium, work surface or affixed to a standard 19" rack rail. Download PDF
Radial JR-2 Dual Remote
Part No. R800 2090 00
The Radial JR-2 is an innovative remote control that is equipped with two footswitches - designated as MUTE and AB select. Although designated this way, the actual functionality of the switch depends on the specific Radial product that is connected. The JR-2 connects to the device using a standard balanced audio cable with choice of ¼" TRS or XLR connections. The JR-2 is unique in that it derives its power from the device being controlled which in turn illuminates the on-board LED indicators to show the remote status. Both switches are latching type.
Radial JR-5 Remote
Part No. R800 6600 00
The Radial JR-5 is a multi-switch remote control designed for the Radial JX44 Air Control wireless guitar and stage amp switcher. It features 5 footswitches that can be used to select instruments or amplifiers. Inside is a programmable memory chip (PIC programmable interrupt controller) that may be programmed using banks or used in manual mode. A series of five ¼" momentary contact closures may also be used to translate switch commands from a MIDI controller to remotely control the JR-5 and JX44.

Radial SW2 Slingshot Remote
Part No. R800 7206
The Radial SW2 is a dual function remote that features two footswitches and two switch outputs. This active box can be used to remotely control certain Tonebone pedals like the Headbone using the Slingshot format or various types of guitar amplifier functions using a standard ¼" guitar cable and may be set for either latching or pulse to adapt to both older and current guitar amplifier switching circuits. Both footswitches may be linked so that hitting either will send a on-off command to both outputs simultaneously. For more information, visit the Radial BigShot SW2 webpage
Flange Mount Adaptors
Most regular size J-Class enclosures such as the Radial JDI and J48 along with the smaller ProDI and SGI enclosures may be permanently affixed to a desk top, podium or inside a rack should the need arise using either the J-Clamp or Pro-Clamp. Installation is easy, you merely remove the book-end outer shell and slide the inner frame into the Clamp and affix using the same hex screws. Handy flanges on each side are then used to bolt down the device for security.

Radial SB-48UB 48V Phantom Power Supply with Instrument Output
Part No. R800 0149 00
The Radial SB-48UB is a unique 48V phantom power supply that enables the artist to power a condenser microphone and then send the balanced signal into the unbalanced signal into a stage amplifier or effect pedal like a Radial PZ-DI acoustic preamp.
The challenge when using a condenser microphone with a preamp pedal, direct box or stage amp is that most of these only have unbalanced inputs. And as most phantom power supplies are only equipped with balanced inputs and outputs, making a proper connection is often difficult or impossible due to the impedance and level mismatch.
The SB-48UB is a single channel phantom power generator that converts the power from a 15VDC supply to 48 Volts for use with a condenser microphone or active direct box. Inside, the SB48-UB converts the signal to both a lo-Z balanced XLR output and a hi-Z unbalanced ¼" out. Both outputs may be used concurrently whereby the XLR could feed the PA while the ¼" out could feed a stage amp or pedalboard. Click here to download the manual
