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 or 12 switch configurations, these systems are warranted for life from defects, by utilizing components rated at up to 1-billion cycles operation. Whether 4,8, or 12 switch configuration, all flat touch panels have the same features.
The in-dash switching modules are only 3/4'' thick weighing under 1/2 pound (for an 8-switch control), enabling in dash modules to Hook & Loop mount to any flat surface. Overhead control panel modules clamp to roll bars. These weatherproof modules are ideal for open cockpit cars.
ARC Flat Touch Control Panels 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.
Each module comes with a selection of race words for switch labeling. White face switch modules have text labels 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. Black face switch models are equipped with nightglow, and function exactly the same as white face switch modules but have illuminated text and outer perimeter that automatically increases the brightness at night to maintain visibility in low light vehicles.
The 12-position switch modules 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 Control panel comes with a relay board and wiring provisions. Replacement Flat Touch control panels and additional auxiliary switch panels are sold separately along with a variety of other electrical replacement parts and mounting accessories.
