The new PTX advanced micro personal transponder for use with AMBrc and AMBrc3 auto-count systems. Developed bij Model Racing Technology the PTX is designed for all race classes. Its tiny 'stealth' footprint allows for easy fitting even in the smallest scale cars. With a tab base version plus replaceable power leads it's the "PT solution" for racers everywhere!
The PTX power specifications meet the requirements of electric, nitro and petrol racing with a wide voltage input range combined with a very low current draw. Simply "plug in and go" for 100% reliable lap counting.
PTX - What is it?
The PTX is a direct powered (DP) personal transponder for use
with AMBrc and AMBrc3 systems and can be used anywhere
that you would use the normal AMBrc personal transponders.
The advantages of the PTX design include the smaller size
compared to normal PT's, the choice of base which can be
replaced and changed between tabbed and non-tabbed mount,
a replaceable power lead, low voltage operation (2.8V min)
continuous high power signal output even at low voltages,
plus very low power consumption compared to normal PT's.
PTX / T1-10 - AMB20 Analogue & AMBrc Digital
Older AMB decoders/systems are analogue, new AMB systems
are digital. There is NO compatibility between systems.
MRT PTX transponders are digital for use on AMBrc/AMBrc3
and MRT T1-10 transponders are analogue for the AMB20.
It is not possible to use an analogue transponder on a
digital system or a digital one on an analogue system.
The older AMB20 system has 10 (or 20 on some systems)
transponder numbers. The newer AMBrc digital system has
a possible 10 million coded digital transponder numbers.
PTX Specifications and Versions
Details of the specifications and versions available are
on the rclaps.com website. Hard cased or 'shrink wrapped'
types can be ordered with standard or customised options.
Cased versions are waterproof and fuelproof, heatshrink
('shrink') versions are extra lightweight but are NOT
waterproof/fuelproof - recommended for indoor use only.
Cased PTX transponders come with an option to have either
a tab mount base (R9981 standard / R9983 customised) or a
base with no tabs (R9980 standard / R9982 customised). If
a standard PTX is ordered with tabs (or without) it comes
supplied with a blue LED and a 190mm / approx 7.5" lead.
PTX Shrink transponders are standard (R9984) or cutomised
(R9985). Custom LED's have 6 options, leads long or short.
Clone versions are the same as above (R9982/R9983/R9985).
LED's available: Blue, Red, Amber, Green, Purple, White.
Power Lead Lengths: Long 190mm (standard), Short 90mm.
Custom length leads are also available (use order form)
