The Q36 Solar Powered Control Box is designed to attach to a Priefert Model RC98M Manual Roping Chute (sold separately) to convert it into a remote-controlled front-release chute. This state-of-the-art unit requires no electrical cords or air lines, just the sun! The solar panel is attached to the top of the compact release box, and utilizes the latest patented, high frequency Pulse technology. Virtually indestructible and highly efficient, the solar panel is also weather proof. The Q36 is also equipped with a battery backup that will allow it to operate in the event that there is no sunlight to recharge the unit. A single button remote control is used to automatically open the chute’s front release gate.
