9
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
4.1.4 Connecting to a Personal Computer
The Xtra.Remote Control can be connected to a PC by
means of a serial cable.
This serial link gives third parties the ability to control and
monitor the karts and track by means of a PC.
4.2
Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder
To be able to limit the speed of the karts from a distance,
every kart must be equipped with an Xtra.EV-Shutdown
Transponder. Each Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder has a
unique serial number, and by using the Xtra.Remote Control
it is possible for the user to give every Xtra.EV-Shutdown
Transponder a kart number, a group number and/or track
number.
Assigning a track number to the Xtra.EV-Shutdown
Transponder gives the possibility, when other kart circuits
are close by, to control the karts independently of each
other. A maximum of 4 tracks can be assigned.
10
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
This gives for example the possibility to assign a kart
number 1 on every circuit, and only a Remote Control which
is also assigned to the same track will have control over this
kart.
On the Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder there is also a plug
for a network connection. By means of this network
connection (future) applications or devices can be linked,
and communicate with the Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder.
4.2.1 Assembly of the Xtra.EV-Shutdown
Transponder
The Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder is easy to install on the
kart, by means of its V-shape based housing. It is possible
to mount the housing both on round and/or square tubes.
By means of 2 tie wraps and 2 double sided adhesive strips
it is possible to mount the Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder
in most cases.
11
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
Place each of the double sided adhesive strips on one of the
slanting V sides on the bottom part of the Xtra.EVShutdown Transponder.
Next, place the Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder on a frame
tube of the kart, so that the adhesive strips keep the
Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder in place.
Fasten the Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder with 2 tie wraps,
and ensure that these cannot tremble off during the use of
the kart or by other causes.
Warning: The best way of mounting the transponder to
your kart depends heavily on your kart’s framework.
Therefore the mounting instructions mentioned above
should be considered as guidelines only. Because the
transponder operates in a rough environment, every now
and then a routine check-up must be made to ensure that
the transponder is still properly fastened and shows no
visual damage.
Keep the upper part (flat part) of the Xtra.EV-Shutdown
Transponder away from any metal parts or wires and never
place it facedown towards the track concrete.
Mount the Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder as far away as
possible from wires which are conducting high currents.
12
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
There is no kart number printed on the Xtra.EV-Shutdown
Transponder, only a serial number. Assigning a kart
number, a group number and a track number to the
Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder is explained in chapter
5.2.8 Menu->Shutdown tp->Assign on page 39.
Assigning the numbers is only possible when the Xtra.EVShutdown Transponder is powered.
When a new Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder is bought, the
default kart number is factory set to the last 2 digits of the
serial number.
Warning: To prevent personal injury during installation of
the Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder(s), the power circuit on
the kart must be disconnected.
Warning: Make sure that the Xtra.EV-Shutdown
Transponder is not damaged before using the kart. In case
of an accident or when the driver steps out of the kart
please validate correct functioning of the Xtra.EV-Shutdown
Transponder.
4.2.2. Electrical connection of the Xtra.EV-Shutdown
Transponder
The wiring of the Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder depends
on the motor drive system used on the kart and on
customers‟ demands.
Operating principle:
The Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponders have internally 4
relays.
13
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
Depending on the
selected speed button on
the Xtra.Remote Control,
certain relays will
activate and others will
deactivate (defined by
the user configurable
switching table).
The switch contacts of
the relays are available
on the CONTROL PORT.
The switch contacts of
the relays are also
connected to the control
port through a series
resistor.
These 4 relay switches
and/or resistors can be
used to control the
electric motor drive
system on the kart, to
create different speed
levels.
In the appendix example wire diagrams are given for some
popular motor drive systems.
Operating modes:
Apart from the SPEED1, SPEED2, SPEED3, SPEED4 and
STOP modes, the following modes are configurable too:

PowerUp:
o This state is entered when the Xtra.EVShutdown Transponder is powered up.
14
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System

Charge Lock:
o This state is entered when the ChargeLock pin
on the CONTROL PORT is powered, indicating
that the batteries are currently charging. In
this state the Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder
does not respond to any SPEED commands.

Charge Unlock:
o This state is entered after the power has been
removed from the ChargeLock pin on the
CONTROL PORT.
Programming the switching table:
With the Xtra.Remote
Control, a user defined
switching table can be
uploaded to the Xtra.EVShutdown Transponder.
During the upload, the
CONFIG pin on the
CONTROL PORT must be
powered. This can be
done by placing the programming cable in between the
CONTROL PORT and existing wire harnass.
15
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
Network Port:
The Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder is fitted with a network
port. Through this network port the Xtra.EV-Shutdown
Transponder can be connected to other on-kart electronics.
Warning: Always put the protection
cap on the Xtra.EV-Shutdown
Transponder’s network port when this
port is not used! Be sure that the
protection cap is fully covering all
outside metal parts of the network
port connector.
It is not allowed to connect devices to
this network port which are not
approved by De Haardt!
Safety warning:
Incorrect wiring and/or configuration of the Xtra.EVShutdown transponder and/or motor controller, may cause
the vehicle to run out of control!
Check wiring regularly and repair damaged (broken, loose
or shorted) wires immediately!
4.3
Xtra.Range Extender/Access point
The Xtra.Range Extender/Access point has a “relay” or
“repeater” approach which helps to cover large and hard-toreach areas and reflective corners on the race circuit.
The unit can also be used as an access point in case it is
connected to the serial port of an external device. This gives
for example third parties the ability to control and monitor
the track and karts by means of a PC.
16
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
4.3.1 Mounting of the Xtra.Range
Extender/Access point
The operating range of the Xtra.Range
Extender/Access point depends on the height
of the antenna above the ground, line of
sight, and obstructions in the line of sight.
Therefore we suggest for range extension on
outdoor circuits to mount the Xtra.Range
Extender/Access point on a mast of at least 4
meters high or on one of the track light poles.
Locate the mast(s) on (a) strategic position(s),
in the centre of the operating areas where
obstacles (like trees and buildings) in the line
of sight are at a minimum.
If you are mounting the antenna on a roof, it
must be at least 1m above the roof line.
For indoor use the Xtra.Range Extender/Access point
can be mounted for example on a fixture which is
located on a building wall or on a pole. The fixture
must provide a distance of at least 35cm between
the Xtra.Range Extender/Access point and the wall.
Always position the Xtra.Range
Extender in such a way that the
antenna is in vertically position and
pointed to the sky.
Guideline for mounting the
Xtra.Range Extender/Access point on
a pole (for illustration only):
Lift the plastic design covers of the
Xtra.Range Extender/Access point
from the aluminium housing.
17
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
The 4 fastening holes are now
visible. Note: It is not necessary to
open the housing for mounting the
unit!
Mount a baseplate to the support
tube. This can be done by a bridge
support. Use self locking nuts to
prevent from loosening by
vibration.
A rubber sheet of around 5mm thickness can be used to
prevent the baseplate from bending in case of tight
tolerances between the tube diameter and bridge support.
Fasten the Xtra.Range
Extender/Access point on a
baseplate with 4 screws (6mm
diameter) and self locking nuts.
Use spacers of around 10mm
length between the Xtra.Range
Extender and baseplate.
After mounting the Xtra.Range
Extender on the baseplate, put
the plastic design covers back
in place.
In case the support
tube must be
fastened to a pole,
U-bolts in
combination with a
bridge support and
self locking nuts
can be used.
18
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
4.3.2 Electrical connections of the Xtra.Range
Extender/Access point
The Xtra.Range Extender can be powered by:
 230 Volt AC mains power supply
 12 Volt DC supply, like a battery, solar panel or
external dc supply.
Standard the Xtra.Range
Extender is supplied with a
230V mains power cord.
In case the unit must be powered by a 12 Volt DC supply,
the main power cord has to be removed.
1. First disconnect the main power cord from the
mains.
2. Open the Xtra.Range Extender/Access box, by
loosening the 4 screws on the top.
3. Disconnect the green top connector of the power
cord from the circuit board connector.
4. Loosen the 2 screws on the green connector on the
cable.
5. Cut the Yellow-Green earth wire from the ring
connector. Remove the remaining ring terminal out
of the equipment housing. After removing the ring
terminal fasten the circuit board again.
6. Loosen the gland and the power cord cable can be
removed from the Xtra.Range Extender/Access point.
19
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
Once the power cord is
removed, the 12 Volt
supply cable can be
inserted through the
gland.
Connect the 12V cable
to the „EXT DC‟
connector on the circuit
board. When the
antenna is facing
upwards, the left pin of
the „EXT DC‟ connector
is the „-‟ (minus), and
the right pin is the „+‟.‟
Important :
In case of powering the Xtra.Range Extender / Access point
by way of an external DC power source, the Xtra.Range
Extender DC supply cable must be fused externally
(500mA).

4.4
Xtra.(warning) Light Control Board
The Xtra.Range Extender/Access point can be extended with
a Light Control Board. By way of this board three 230V
switched outputs are created which for example can be used
to turn on and off start, stop and (sector) warning lights.
In addition the light control has 4 low voltage inputs (12
Volt), which can be used to externally control the lights.
Also by way of advanced system configuration (not
described in this manual) other functions can be assigned to
the 4 inputs.
The Light Control Board can only control the three 230V
switched outputs when the Xtra.Range Extender / Access
point is powered by 230 Volt. If the board is only used as
input device then it can also operate when the Xtra.Range
Extender is powered by the external DC input.
4.4.1 Mounting the Light Control Board
Warning: Disconnect all power
sources from the Xtra.Range
Extender / Access point and Light
Control Board, when doing
mounting and installation works!
The Light Control Board can be
mounted on top of the Xtra.Range
Extender / Access point board. On
the Xtra.Range Extender / Access
point are 4 spacers mounted, on
which the Light Control Board has to
be installed.
22
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
When positioning the Light Control
Board on the Xtra.Range extender
board, be sure that the pin header
on the Range Extender board is on
the same position as the connector
on the backside of the Light
Control Board.
Fixate the light controller board
with the 4 plastic screws.
Do not apply excessive force since
plastic screws are easily damaged.
After the Light Control Board is
mounted on top of the Xtra.Range
Extender / Access point board,
connect the input power connector
of the Light Control Board into the socket on the Range
Extender / Access point board.
4.4.2 Wiring the Light Control Board
Once the Xtra.Light Control Board is installed, the
white power receptacle has to be connected to the
white power plug on the Xtra.Range Extender main
board. This connector is located next to the fuse.
The power connector has dual locking lances. Be
sure these are latched when the board is installed.

The Light Control Board is separately fused (6,3A/Slow). As
illustrated above, there are individual connectors available
on the Light Control Board for the 3 switched output
channels.
Before starting the wiring, cable glands have to be screwed
into the housing and securely fastened. Three M16x1.5
threaded holes are available for this purpose, which become
visible after the blanking plugs are removed.
The M12x1.5mm threaded hole is available in case a cable
must be connected to the control input of the Xtra.Light
Control module.
The cable used to connect the switched output to the lights
must at least be insulated and have a minimum of 1,0mm2
conducted area. The cable also has to be at least rated for
300/500V, with a maximum length of 50 meters.

Both external 12Vdc and 12Vac (50/60 Hz) input signals can
be used for the input.
Use a multicore (Control) cable to connect the external
inputs to the controlling device. This cable must have a
voltage rating of at least 300 Volts, with a maximum length
of 50 meters.
The controlling device must be isolated galvanically from the
mains.
Important note:
All used cable glands must always provide fixation of the
cable feed-trough up to a force of 60 Newton. Double check
this time after time during maintenance.
The clamp range of the 3 M16 glands is 5.5–9mm. For the
M12 gland this range is 4–6 mm. Never feed through cables
with different diameters.
Prevent damage to the feed through cable caused by over
fastening the dome nut on the gland body.
4.5
Xtra.Sector Control System
Using the Xtra.Sector Control System the speed of karts can
be controlled in every section (zone) of the race track. In
the case of an accident, the speed of the karts driving inside
the dangerous zone is limited automatically. Once the karts
are outside the dangerous section, the speed limit will be
released.
The same system can be used for Pit-In and Pit-out speed
control. Once a kart drives into the pit area, the speed is
automatically reduced while the other karts on the track
retain their normal speed. When a kart exits the pits, the
speed is set to normal.
27
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
For circuits having 2 (or more) tracks which can be
combined into one big track, the system can change the
Track/Group settings of the Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder
by simply driving a kart through the „configuration sector‟.
The Xtra.Sector Control System consists of one or more
Xtra.Sector Beacon(s) placed along the track and
Xtra.Sector Sensors mounted on every kart.
A wire is placed in a rectangular loop across the tarmac and
attached to the Xtra.Sector Beacon. This loop marks the
start of the sector. The loop/section number and function
can be easily selected on the Xtra.Sector Beacon.
The Xtra.Sector Sensor is connected to the Xtra.EVShutdown transponder by means of the kart network port.
Once the kart passes the loop, the intelligent Xtra.Sector
Sensor processes the function received.
Track Sector numbering :
Every sector starts after passing the Xtra.Sector Beacon
loop as illustrated below:
28
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
Sector numbering depends on driving direction as illustrated
below:
The Xtra.Sector Beacon can be configured for both driving
directions, in case a separate “Driving Direction Unit” is
used. As this unit normally is NOT supplied with the
Xtra.Sector Beacon, this function is not further explained.
4.5.1 Electrical connection of the Xtra.Sector Beacon
The LOOP wire
is placed in a
rectangular
groove which is
cut in the race
track surface.
The 10mm deep by 3mm wide groove
must ultimately be filled with silicon
or another resin.
The ends of the LOOP wire must be attached (by soldering)
to the 2 blue wires coming from the Xtra.Sector Beacon
unit. Before soldering
the loop wires, cut them
to the required length
and place the crimp
sleeves.
Once the soldering is
29
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
finished position the crimp sleeves over the solder
connections and crimp the sleeves with a heat gun.
The power for the
Xtra.Sector Beacon is
provided by an
external adapter.
Push the adapter
power plug completely into the socket on the Xtra.Sector
Beacon. Once the plug is put correctly into the socket,
fasten the plug with its locking screw. Once locked, the
connection is water resistant.
Warning: Keep unplugged connectors (both sockets and
plugs) completely dry and clean. Never expose them to
water, fuel, oil, chemicals or any kind of dirt!
Warning: The adapter itself is NOT waterproof and not
intended for outside use. In case the Xtra.Sector Beacon
system must be used outside, the adapter needs additional
protection.
The Xtra.Sector Beacon itself is 100% waterproof once the
power plug is connected conform instructions.
4.5.2 Mounting of the Xtra.Sector Sensor
Every kart requires its own Xtra.Sector Sensor.
It is essential that the Xtra.Sector Sensor is
installed according to the descriptions below,
otherwise performance problems or even
damage can be expected.
The most important rules of installation are:
30
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System



The maximum distance between the loop antenna
and the housing of the Xtra.Sector Sensor is 20 cm.
For best performance the Xtra.Sector Sensor must
be mounted flat on the karts plastic floor plate in line
with the driving direction (printed arrow points to the
driving direction). Aluminum floor plates may reduce
performance.
Keep the Xtra.Sector Sensor as far as possible away
from tubes, iron or other electric conducting
materials and the karts high current conducting
cables.
It is advisable to first connect the Xtra.Sector Sensor to one
kart only, then test if it performs properly, and continue to
mount the timing transponders to all other karts.
The fixation of the Xtra.Sector Sensor can be done with 3
screws.
4.5.3 Electrical connection Xtra.Sector Sensor
On the kart, the Xtra.Sector Sensor must be connected to
the Xtra.EV-Shutdown Transponder through the network
port.
The network port is protected with a rubber cap normally.
This rubber cap has to be removed before the network
connector can be attached. Check the polarisation before
fitting the connector!
31
Manual Xtra.Remote Electric
Kart & Track Control System
Once attached double check the coupled connectors and
make 100% sure that vibration cannot loosen the
connection.
Warning: Keep unplugged connectors (both sockets and
plugs) completely dry and clean. Never expose them to
water, fuel, oil, chemicals or any kind of dirt!
Warning: Make 100% sure that vibration can NOT loosen
the network connection as this can cause several problems
like bad functioning of the system, corrosion of the network
plug and socket, etc..

Wiring examples
ASMO MD-95
The ASMO MD95 motor controller is a direct current motor
controller. It controls motor current and, consequently, the
torque produced.
In this example the motor controller is started/stopped with
relay 1 from the Xtra.EV-Shutdown transponder, by
paralleling the relay switch contact across the brake
switch/speed pot.
By connecting a resistor (Xtra.EV-Shutdown transponder)
between pin 6 of the MD95 controller and ground, the
maximum battery current is limited, and indirectly also the
maximum speed.
