Cartek uses Infrared to communicate between the Steering Wheel and Control System. The complete system includes a universal fitting steering wheel panel, incorporating 8 sealed pushbutton switches and infra red transmitter module, an infra red receiver and a relay control unit.
By using this technology the wireless communication is completely protected from outside signals such as radio waves and EMF unlike other systems on the market. The system also allows the wireless link to be full 360 degrees.

The infrared Transmitter module is mounted to rear of the Steering Wheel Pushbutton Panel and is battery powered. The Transmitter only consumes electrical power when a pushbutton is pressed and therefore does not need to be turned off when not in use.
When a pushbutton is pressed an LED on Transmitter will show the status of the internal battery. If the LED shows Green then the battery is in good condition, if the LED shows Red then the battery needs to be replaced.
