CARTEK POWER CONTROL PANELS

Power Distribution and Switches in one self contained unit

INTRODUCTION

CARTEK Power Control Panels are an all-in-one solid state solution to power distribution in your race car. Designed to replace all the Fuses, Relays and Switches - these units greatly simplify the wiring, saving weight and maximising reliability.


The fully customisable nature of the Power Control Panels allow CARTEK to configure systems to customers exact requirements. Customers can choose the number of channels, channel functions, button colours, and graphics.




DIRECT REPLACEMENT

CARTEK Power Control Panels are a direct replacement for Fuses, Relays and Switches. This unit therefore reduces all the wiring in between the Fuses, Relays and Switches as well as simplifying the installation.


HOW IT WORKS

16 RELAYS

16 SWITCHES

16 FUSES

These Power Control Panels take in 12v from the Battery, from which the channels then distribute separate power feeds around the car. All power feeds coming out from the Power Control Panel have over-current and short-circuit protection meaning it is not necessary to put additional fuses in place.


When a Cartek Power Control Panel is turned on then the LED will display the channel status:

   No LED   = Channel OFF

   LED on    = Channel ON

   Flashing  = ERROR


When short-circuit or over current is detected, the Power Control Panel will try to reset the channel automatically. If there is still a problem then it will shut down that channel and the corresponding LED will begin to flash. To reset the error, switch the channel OFF then ON again. A full power cycle / system reset is not needed.

BUILT IN FUNCTIONS

As well as incorporating over-current and short-circuit protection, the Power Control Panels also come with various functions.


CHOICE OF AMPERAGE

The Power Control Panels can be configured with 8 amp, 16 amp, 24 amp, and 32 amp channels. As standard the modules inside the Power Control Panels come with two 8 amp/16 amp channels. To get a 24 amp/32 amp channel we combine two channels together:


2 x 8 amp / 16 amp modules

1 x 24 amp / 32 amp modules

Combine 2 channels
