The transmitter on the wheel for auxiliary controls PV1009 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 PV1009 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.
The keypad is revolving in respect to the wheel: 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, their exact position can be easily found just by moving the fingers, without looking away from the road, not even for a moment. Each button is backlit, which makes it easier for the driver to find them at night.
The handle has a very singular shape, offering remarkable advantages in terms of ergonomics: it’s an extended handle, replacing the traditional knob, which perfectly fits to the driver’s hand palm. It doesn’t have sharp corners and it can be removed when not in use.
Removing it from the steering wheel is very simple and it just takes a few seconds: pull down the lower locking ring and pull out the handle at the same time. The adapter consists of two exactly symmetrical plastic shells secured to the wheel. The supporting surface of about 60 square mm completely fulfills the purpose to support the keypad and the knob and makes them form one body with the wheel.
The handle is available in different colors to better adapt to the colors of the car compartment and to the car interior design. The transmitter is powered by three AAA batteries, easily replaceable by the end-user.
