Most people agree that our technology is getting smarter, but most don’t realise just how smart! In reality, smart technology is around us every day and is developing faster than we can keep up. Today’s smart technology is watching us, helping us, and is getting smarter because of us.

The New and Innovative KT Commander Series Smart-Touch Switch Panel is another KT innovation, helping us move forward with the times. If you are an Electrician or simply a DIY handyman, You may be familiar with the ‘Switch Panel’ or Switch Bank’ which typically looks like a row of rocker switches mounted into one housing to form a ‘panel’. The switches rock backwards and forwards, ‘On and Off’ to provide power to appliances. This basic technology has carried us through until now . . .

For 8 Way KT Commander Smart-Touch Switch Panels: Once you have connected GROUND ( – ) wire and one Positive ( + ) wire to battery A and one Positive ( + ) wire to battery B, your switch is now live and will immediately provide a voltage reading for battery A and battery B.

  • When connecting to a 12V device, e.g.; a work light, connect the positive wire to one of the switches of choice. Providing the device has been grounded through the Negative Wire, your device should now be live.
  • Select the  icons of your choice which best indicate the application of your device. The below comprehensive range of icons are included with your KT 4 and 8 Way Commander Smart- Touch Switch Panel. Ensure to remove the black frame and glass before applying your icons onto the clear recess covering the switch panel touch buttons. Icons can be easily removed and replaced to change the use of the switch.
