Remote car starter
A remote car starter is a device which allows a driver to start a vehicle without having to turn the ignition key, and normally by a remote control key-chain type transmitter. Wireless devices for remotely starting an automobile engine typically include a receiver for receiving radio frequency encoded signals and an electronic controller coupled to a vehicle ignition which starts an engine in response to the receiver receiving a wireless signal. Remote vehicle starting systems utilize a portable hand-held transmitter that issue a binary coded sequence in the form of an RF transmission to signal a slave controller mounted oh board the vehicle to energize the starter motor in order to crank the engine. The RF transmitter used to activate such devices usually sends a radio signal encoded with an identification code so the receiver may verify the transmitter is authorized to start the vehicle engine. The slave controller pick-ups the RF signal and performs an engine starting sequence. The starting sequence includes energizing the starter motor to crank the engine and, once the engine has started, turning off the starter motor. A remote engine starter system typically includes a tachometer to sense the proper operation of the engine. The tachometer may be coupled to control circuitry for controlling operation of the remote engine starter system.
