Why run heavy battery cables all the way from your battery to your kill switch and back? The Cartek GT Battery Isolator is a solid-state electrical master switch that can be mounted close to the battery. It is triggered by a push button switch which can be remote-mounted in the location specified by the rules.
Cartek isolators are designed to meet FIA and MSA requirements for electrical master kill switches. One main circuit cuts off the ground connection to the battery, while a second circuit turns off power to the ignition system and fuel pumps to positively shut off the engine. Solid state construction means no moving parts and no potential for sparks when the switch is operated.
The isolator can be triggered by any number of normally closed, momentary-break switches (push button or toggle), connected in series using standard hookup wire (as small as 18 gauge). Just push the button to kill the system. A latching (on-off) switch or your car's ignition switch can be used to reset the isolator. This Isolator does not include any trigger switches. The External Pushbutton Battery Isolator Switches are sold separately (Part No. 1068-110-Color).
We also stock the full Cartek GT Battery Isolator Kit with Blue External Button (Part No. 1068-107).
The GT Isolator can be used with 7 to 18 volt electrical systems (negative ground only). The main battery switching circuit can handle a constant 450 amp battery load (2000A surge capacity), while the ignition/fuel pump circuit can handle up to 30 amps. Maximum operating temperature 185° F. Measures 3 5/8" x 2" x 1 1/2" tall and weighs just 5 ounces. Designed and manufactured in the UK for professional racing.
