drc Remote Climatisation

Radio remote control solutions for vehicle air conditioning

Compact design, super-easy operation and high reach.

Under the term digades remote comfort (drc), we bundle our competence in radio remote control solutions. Our system solutions are characterised by long ranges, short latency times and by the energy-efficient control of comfort functions and vehicle air conditioning. Everything is as fast as it is easy to operate. For everyday use and practical value as standard. As well as a material quality that is designed for a long-term operating life.

In the original equipment of various automobile manufacturers or as an aftermarket product, our drc product solutions already enable millions of intuitive operating convenience, with or without display. Always with a range of functions and control options tailored to customer requirements and always as a platform solution, either with or without OEM-specific design. The vehicle air conditioning is provided by an auxiliary heater installed in the vehicle or by means of remote engine start in markets outside Europe. We develop these so-called Remote Engine Start Systems according to the requirements of functional safety according to ISO 26262. With minor modifications, our system solutions can also be used for battery conditioning and control of the stationary air conditioning in battery-powered vehicles.
