Hubbell also offers a compact transmitter designed specifically for Radio Locomotive Control Systems, available in 72–76MHz or450–470MHz. This compact microcontroller transmitter offers smaller size, less weight and greater operator acceptance over the full size transmitter. The size is reduced by 33% making it safe to use in tight conditions. The weight is reduced by 15% which allows longer wearing cycles.

The compact transmitter has all the ruggedness of the standard Hubbell transmitter and includes a rechargeable nickel cadmium battery pack and adjustable harness. All functions of the locomotive are duplicated with reliable, high quality switches and pushbuttons. Throttle position and brake pressure are controlled by one switch, a reliable return to center device with positive detents in all positions. All switches are located for ease of operations and identified on an engraved legend plate.
