A REVOLUTION IN SOLID STATE DIGITAL SWITCH CONTROL
Mechanical switches are a thing of the past.... It’s time for a new generation of solid-state digital control !
The solid-state completely digital switch matrix from Summit Technologies. Built on the backbone of our proven ‘Raptor’ technology, the Talon features 15 individually programmable buttons, designed to control ANY 12 volt vehicle electronics system. From lights, to ignition… from ECU maps to Engine start.
The programming of each switch couldn’t be easier, and each Talon system comes with it’s own set of 90 individual photo luminescent switch decals to apply. The design of the Talon allows you to visually and logically ‘group’ activities together, like having all of your auxiliary options in one area, and your main switch controls in another.
We’ve also incorporated a 16 segment digital LED sequential shift light, that’s self-powered and accepts the signal from your ECU or ignition coil. By accessing the panel on the rear, you can select the type of action you want each button to perform.
Each of the 15 membrane switches can be programmed to act as a momentary switch or a latching switch with a flashing state on both options. When selected, the flashing state has been set at 2 flashes per second. Perfect for use as vehicle indicators. • MOMENTARY ACTION (Press and Hold) • LATCHING ACTION (Press once to Lock, Press again to Unlock) • FLASHING ACTION (For both Momentary and Latching states)
Each of the 15 switches in the Talon outputs a 12 volt 250 milliamp live on it’s corresponding wire, so you can hook up vehicle electrics on each switch. Or for switching larger loads, just use the output to trigger a larger relay.
Around the back of the Talon, we’ve included some handy USB charging ports to provide uninterrupted power to your smartphones, or in car video cameras when out on track.
Designed specifically to use the VESA 100 mounting standard, the Talon can be fitted with a variety of different mounting options, giving real flexibility to its position.
VESA 100 Mount available separately.
As with our Raptor system, all connections are made with a single self-locking power block. This makes for a safer AND tidier installation. The main body of the Talon is machined from a single piece of extruded aluminium, then glass bead-blasted and anodised…. to achieve a beautiful and smooth rust proof finish.
The whole assembly is extremely durable, and measuring only 140 by 140 mm and only 40 mm deep, it’s perfectly sized to accommodate use from even the largest of race gloved hands.
We’ve also designed the Talon to be as flexible as possible… to accommodate further changes. Want to change a switch to operate something else in the future? ... No problem. Just make your adjustments under the rear panel, replace the switch decal and you’re ready to go.
Once power is applied, the Talons power button pulses its LED, waiting for you to start the system. All that’s required is to hold the power button for 2 seconds to start it up. The same applies to shutting the system down. Just hold the power button for 2 seconds and the system immediately shuts down, reverting all switches to the OFF state.
We think you’ll agree… you’ll never look at switches in the same way again!
