CARTEK FiA RAIN LIGHTS

More than just a Rain Light

INTRODUCTION

CARTEK have been producing electronic safety equipment for the motorsport industry for over 10 years and were the first company to produce a rain light to the 2008 FiA specification in accordance with Technical List No: 19.


Tested by BSi and homologated by the FiA in 2010 this light meets all requirements including minimum size, light intensity, viewing angle, heat resistance and prolonged use reliability. The design has also been made robust to withstand the harsh environment of the race car whilst maintaining a small size and low weight.


USED BY MAJOR MANUFACTURERS

Designed to be one of the strongest and most reliable  -  Cartek FiA Rain Lights are a popular choice with major manufacturers.


HAZARD WARNING FEATURES

Both the Multi-mode Rain light and Dual coloured Rain Light come with a 3 position toggle switch gives the driver 3 modes of operation:

OFF, ON or HAZARD FLASHING.


Cartek realised that the full potential of Rain Lights was never being used. Instead of just being used for wet races the Rain Light could also be used as a hazard warning device.

Our Rain Lights can help prevent rear-end shunts by alerting drivers of a stationary or slow moving car.


When to use it:


Aston Martin

V8 Supercars

KTM

Porsche

Audi

Ford

V8 SUPERCARS CASE STUDY

V8 Supercars Australia tasked Cartek with developing a Rain Light that not only met the latest FiA Specifications but that would also include a Hazard Amber warning function as a serious Start Line accident could have been prevented. See below.


This Hazard warning function would light up when the cars PDM unit would recognise when the car has stalled - alerting all the drivers around that the car has a problem. See the Dual coloured Rain Light in action:
