Omega to Release Plug-in Harness Kits for Remote Start Series

Aug 16, 2017

Omega Research & Development Technologies Inc. is introducing a new line of vehicle specific plug-in harnesses that add any Excalibur 70 series remote start with an OmegaLink bypass module. The initial launch will cover the majority of domestic vehicle applications.

The company also is releasing a new v1.3 firmware for its 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, according to the company.

For example, Omega’s AL-1870-3DB two-way remote start/alarm can be installed in 2011-17 Dodge Caravans in under 30 minutes with only one hardwire connection to the vehicle for flashing lights, according to the company. Installers just connect siren and shock sensor to complete the system. The vehicle is then 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 is also releasing 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, according to the company.

“We’ve added latched output settings for Aux channels and upgraded our low temp auto-start to have 3 selectable temperature thresholds,” the company stated in a news release. “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 two-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 our dealers expand their application coverage to new market segments beyond passenger vehicles.”

All 70 series two-way controllers have significantly increased battery life with new intelligent power management technology, according to the company.
