Premier Remotes Boatlift Controls Installation Instructions

Read All Directions before Installation. Installation should be performed by a qualified electrician adhering to the National Electric Code. These instructions do not supersede the National Electric Code or any local codes. It is the recommendation of Premier Remotes to wire all boat lift controls at 240 volts with neutral and ground. Additionally, GFCI must be provided. The lamp feature will not operate if the controller is wired at 240 volts without neutral. The controller can be wired at 120 volts with neutral but motor loads must be considered.

Tools Required

  • 5/16 (4mm) standard slotted screwdriver
  • 1/8 standard slotted screwdriver
  • Wire strippers
  • Drill or Impact driver with bits

General Specification

  • Designed to operate at 120/240VAC
  • Box will operate 1 motor, 2 motor, and 4 motor lifts
  • The lamp supply feeds need the neutral leg of the 240VAC connected in order to operate lamp feature.
  • Please see Chart 1 for suggested wire size between the main overload protection and the motors.
  • Each lamp control will support up to 800 watts each; you must consider feeder load to properly size the wire to support lighting demand. All lighting demand is supported by L1. If you are using the lighting function, please ensure the circuit is large enough to support the motor loads and the lighting loads. Please See Chart 2.
