Douglasville, Georgia – October 18th, 2017 – Omega Research & Development Technologies, Inc. is now shipping a new line of vehicle specific plug-in harnesses that add ANY Excalibur 70 series remote start with an OmegaLink bypass module. This initial launch will cover the majority of domestic vehicle applications. They are also released a new v1.3 firmware for their Excalibur remote start line.
The new line of OmegaLink plug-in harnesses are compatible with all Excalibur 70 series remote start systems combined with an OL-BLADE-AL64 or OL-MDB-ALL interface module. Installers can now take advantage of the timesaving features of plug-in systems without sacrificing features. For example, the AL-1870-3DB 2-way remote start/alarm can be installed in 2011-17 Dodge Caravans in under 30 minutes with only 1 hardwire connection to the vehicle for flashing lights. Just connect siren and shock sensor to complete the system. In record time, the vehicle would be equipped with full keyless entry, sliding door control, rear hatch control, remote start, low and high temp auto start, low volt auto start, run timer with on demand run-time extender, low vehicle battery alert, full security, long range remote, and every other feature a 70 series has to offer.
Omega also released a new v1.3 firmware for all Excalibur 70 series remote start systems. It brings a bundle of enhancements and feature upgrades for the 2017 remote start season. We’ve added latched output settings for Aux channels and upgraded our low temp auto-start to have three selectable temperature thresholds. While we were at it, we added high temp auto-start capability, also with three selectable thresholds, for any vehicles carrying sensitive cargo. Aux channel activation and multicar selection can now be performed with one hand on all 2-way controllers making access easier while carrying things to your car. We’ve also added a new “lock without arming” feature for on-demand keyless entry only. This is ideal for recreational vehicles or any situation where lock control is desired while the vehicle is occupied. One of many features designed to help dealers expand their application coverage to new market segments beyond passenger vehicles.
Last, but not least, all 70 series 2-way controllers have significantly increased battery life with new intelligent power management technology. Excalibur v1.3 firmware can be downloaded and installed on any earlier version 70-Series Excalibur unit using our xOS technology at www.omegaweblink.com. Since all Excalibur Remote Start units are flashable, you can always keep your inventory up to date, and eliminate obsolescence.
