Extra product information
The transmitter on the wheel for auxiliary controls PV1009, PV1102 and PV3000 is used by drivers with disabilities to one upper limb. It can be installed in cars with automatic gear and power-assisted steering. The transmitter on the wheel for auxiliary controls is an infra-red device that manages the service controls from one station on the steering wheel, either on the right or the left, depending on the individual’s needs.
The device consists of a keypad and a handle which allow the driver to control the steering wheel with the able limb and to manage direction indicators, windscreen wipers (two speeds available), windscreen washer, low and high beam lights, flashing, rear windscreen wipers, horn and hazard lights.
For the PV1009 and PV1102 the keypad is revolving in respect to the wheel: it’s always perpendicular to the wheel, regardless of its position. For the PV3000 the keypad can be fixed or revolving: in the first case it’s an integral part of the adaptor while the wheel is turning, in the second case it’s always perpendicular to the wheel, regardless of its position.
The buttons for the auxiliary functions are in relief with respect to the keypad surface so that their exact position can be found just by moving the fingers, without looking away from the road. Each button is backlit, which makes it easier for the driver to find them at night.
For the PV 1009 the handle has an ergonomic shape with it’s extended handle replacing the traditional knob. For the PV3000 the handle consists of a round and ergonomic knob. They can be removed quickly and easily when not in use.
The handle is available in different colours.
The transmitter is powered by three AAA batteries, easily replaceable by the end-user.
