ARC Flat Touch Switch Control Panel
These flat touch face control panels are truly unique because they use no electronics, which makes them immune to EMI and RFI interference. Available in 4, 8 & 12 switch configurations these systems are warranted from defects for their life, by utilizing components rated at up to 1-billion cycles operation.
The switching units are only 3/4'' thick weighing under 1/2 pound (for an 8-switch control), enabling in dash units to Velcro mount to any flat surface. Overhead control panel units clamp to roll bars. These units are weather proof which make them ideal for open cockpit cars. Typical installation time for an 8-switch unit is under 45 minutes.
These units feature 50-Amp rated switching and fusing. A simple jumper connection selects either 12V or 16V operation. Internal selector switches allow you to change any switch from a maintained on/off operation to momentary. Another feature allows you to have a master/ignition switch that can be set up to turn off none, any one, or all of the panels switches at the same time the ignition is turned off. This is a tremendous safety advantage in an emergency.
The unit comes with a selection of race words for switch labeling. The labels are backlit red when the switch is off, allowing you to not only see where but what each switch is. When the switch is turned on the backlight changes from red to green. The 12 position switch units allow the selection of a second master switch, using switches 9 thru 12 for nitrous operation shutting the entire nitrous system down simultaneously. The momentary switch selection feature allows you to create purge and bottle opener operations easily. Switches 9 thru 12 may also remain in the standard operation mode as switches 1 thru 8. Each unit comes with wiring.
