Motion Encoder Transmitter Parts


The Motion Encoder Transmitter Parts allow you to convert either a Standard Cart or a Plunger Cart into a Motion Encoder Cart. One-time assembly requires removing a cart end cap, installing a transmitter unit underneath the cart, and installing a replacement end cap.

The assembled cart must be used with the Motion Encoder Receiver, and the track must have the Motion Encoder Track Strip installed. The IR transmitter requires two AAA batteries (not included).
