I like that idea, are the rotating boss contacts and pick-up available commercially?

That's a nice bit of kit but I dont have the equipment to make it, so i'll wait for the IR ones to arrive and test the coverage.

Re the IVA, I've only had a quick read of the manual and I saw nothing on having switches illuminated only having the correct warning lights most of which are contained in the SPA dash I'm using, and when you think about it on normal cars the stalks which control indicators lights etc aren't lit.

i have a spare and cnc drawings/assembly for it, if anyone is interested. The ball bearings on the pick up side are spring loaded for max contact and should last without maintenance for the mileage life.

This is rather nifty and quite a bit cheaper. Uses RF too smile

I like the RF bit but a bit too limited in functionality with two latching and two momentary switches, a hybrid of this system and the Cartek 8 button IR would be good, the RF summit unit with the choice of latching or momentary for each button.
Good for a budget build at £250 though.

The Summit Unit does all 3 modes. All Momentary, All Latching or 2 of each. smile

What about 3 momentary 1 latching?

For a combo, it's 2 of each (2 latching and 2 momentary). If you need 3 latching, i'd put them all in latching mode and just 'double press' the button you wanted to be momentary.

Or use momentary buttons and latching relays.

All of the buttons are momentary, Steve. The latching states are selected in the receiver with a switch. smile
