Omega Research and Development, Inc. (Booth #11818) announced today the introduction of their eight upgraded EXCALIBUR Series Remote Start systems. The RS-240-DP is a new entry level one-button remote start system with a lower price point. The RS-230-DPB is a new deluxe one-button remote start system offering low temperature detection & BLADE cartridge support. The RS-340-EDP and RS-340-EDP+ are new keyless entry and remote start systems. They join the proven RS-330-EDPB this season with new data port technology that hosts both DEI and iDatalink module protocols as well as offering support for Omega’s new CarLink smartphone interface. The RS-330-EDPB, AL-1630-EDPB and AL-1830-EDPB, & AL-2030-EDPB are continuing their evolution and their legacy as the most flexible remote start systems available! With new firmware upgrades available they now offer Omega CarLink compatibility among several other feature enhancements.
These RS & Combo units are compatible with the Omegalink Databus suite of OEM integration solutions which simply plug into the system’s data port saving installer time and effort. All “EDPB” models take it a step further with BLADE cartridge compatibility. This eliminates any wiring between the module and remote start system as well as eliminating extra modules to mount in the vehicle for the least invasive installation possible.
The BLADE-AL, universal doorlock and transponder cartridge supports almost 3,000 vehicle applications including CANbus vehicles and the BLADE-TB universal transponder cartridge supports immobilizer bypass for over 1,700 vehicles.
“BLADE technology saves a significant amount of install time. It docks directly on the remote starter eliminating module-to-module wiring, and using a computer, you can quickly re-flash the BLADE cartridge’s firmware, the remote starter’s firmware, set the remote starter’s programmable features and basically configure the entire system before picking up any tools,” said Hircio Barrios, Operations Manager, Omega Research and Development.
The RS-240-DP, stand alone remote start system is Omega’s entry level unit that features a data port for integration modules, 1-button 1,000 ft long range remote with backlit button, 5 onboard relays, unlock output for easy vehicle access during remote start season, turbo timer with selectable run times, window mount antenna, low volt auto start, 5 methods of engine detection (tachless hi, tachless low, tach, crank only, & data tach), and gas & diesel compatibility.
The RS-230-DPB, deluxe stand-alone remote start system offers all the same features as the RS-240-DP but adds low temp auto start, low temp auto crank adjust, 1,500 ft range, valet switch & status lights integrated into the antenna, & BLADE cartridge port.
