SHOW LIVE: New products from Cartek Motorsport


Cartek is using the 2016 Professional MotorSport World Expo to showcase its replacement for its ever popular Battery Isolator XS; the XR. The new version features new hardware making it Cartek’s most powerful electronic Battery Isolator yet.

The company states that the installation process of the XR version has been simplified in comparison to the XS, with the new model also incorporates a 0.5 second delay between transmitting the engine kill signal and disconnecting the battery allowing ECUs time to perform a shutdown sequence before electrical power is lost.

Also on display is Cartek’s revised for 2017 Wireless Control System. The steering wheel panel is now fitted with plain, unmarked buttons and supplied with two sticker sheets allowing users to customise their panel. One sticker sheet contains multi coloured symbols while the other is printed using fluorescent yellow ink which glows in the dark under minimal UV light making it suitable for night racing applications.

Cartek will also be displaying its new OBD2 CAN-Bus Signal Convertor. The unit plugs into the OBD2 port of all modern cars, instead of being installed directly into the car’s CAN-Bus wiring system. The convenient, ‘plug-n-play’ solution obtains RPM and Km/h signals for use with shift light and gear indicator product on cars where these signals are not available.

Cartek Automotive Electronics can be found on Stand 4052 of the 2016 Professional MotorSport World Expo.
