Welcome the newest model to the head tracking lineup, the IRTrackStar v3 RS Ultralight. Weighing just 3.1oz, it is the lightest IRTrackStar yet, and only sacrifices 100mAh of battery life at 1500mAh as compared to the standard v3's 1600mAh. This battery has the same 1000 charge cycle rating and you can expect very similar runtimes, 24hrs+. With it's new design, the switch and USB C charging port (cable not included) are now located on the rear of the unit for easy charging while in use.

The IRTrackStar is a wireless infrared head tracker for use with head tracking cameras and software. (Ex. TrackIR and Opentrack) This is the perfect addition to your Sim setup, providing excellent head tracking that far exceeds the major brands (brand, not plural) ...The IRTrackStar provides improved tracking and reliability, as well as being wireless. The mounting arm is short enough not to cantilever the weight, but also keep the leds out of your line of site, and away from the mic boom.

The unit contains 3 Ultra Bright IR LED's arranged to function with all major IR tracking brands. (Infrared cam and tracking software is required, see more about this below) The IRTrackStar is larger than the TrackIR Pro Clip to increase range and accuracy. It is 6.5" from front to rear. A 1500mAh Li-Ion built-in rechargeable battery is used for power. It requires a USB C charging cable (not included).

PLEASE READ ALL NOTES AND INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE PURCHASE.

*The IRTrackStar is built to order. 5-10 business days is the normal time frame for shipping orders though this may vary by a few days depending on order volume. You'll be notified if your order is expected to be delayed.


****Notes and Instructions****

*Operation: Switch up is on, down is off. ( the head tracker mounts on the left side of your headset, and the longest led arm should be on bottom )

*Not all usb c chargers are compatible. If the red charging light doesn't light up when you plug it in, try a different charger. The cheap generic usb c quick chargers seem to work the best. Surge protectors, hubs, PC USB ports, and charging stations tend to cause issues. It has to do with the duel protection circuits being finicky about voltage and amperage.

*The 3 leds are Infrared. You can't see them light up unless you're looking at them through an IR camera.

*Velcro strap is included for attaching to your gaming headset. The mounting arm is designed with a foam pad to equalize the pressure against your headset. Press the mount arm against the headphones band firmly to compress the foam as much as possible, then cinch the velcro tight and there shouldn't be any wobble at all, even with fast head movements. This design provides a firm mount against most headsets, however some customization may be required. The Astros is one model of headphones that is not compatible without customization.

*Led colors: Blue is charged (some boards I use have green for the charged color, I don't know why, every package says green for charged, most boards are blue), Red is displayed during charging. A blue runtime light is now included which will display through the gills on the lower portion of the body.

For Opentrack systems, adjust Gain, Threshold and Point Extraction min/max to dial in. Also, the dimension of spacing to enter in model settings is as follows. Top led to middle led: 23mm back and 43mm down. Middle led to bottom led: 62mm down and 74mm forward. Central led lateral offset is 15mm, however there isn't a place to input this measurement. It doesn't effect tracking not to have it entered though.

TrackIR is mostly plug and play, but don't forget to select TrackClipPro on the main page. Also, depending on your distance from the IR Camera, you may need to reduce the Light Filter Threshold to get the most out of the IRTrackStars range. You can find this on the main page under Advanced Settings, Camera tab, Light Filter Threshold. The leds are very bright so only adjust as needed.

If you need help dialing in your settings, I can provide assistance through my Discord channel to help get you setup. My ID is Hollywood83#4306

All units are tested before being shipped out to ensure they're operational and tracking properly. Batteries are not fully charged when shipped for safety reasons.

Here is an excellent article on setting up Opentrack software, as well as a general overview of head tracking for those that are new to it.

**This head tracker also requires a camera with an IR pass lens in order to function. That is not included. I recommend a cam with 60 to 120 fps. Also required is the tracking software, which I recommend Opentrack. (Freetrack is also an option, but I haven't had a lot of luck with it) TrackIR camera and software is fully supported as well, and provides a significant increase in tracking performance over the pro clip.

Specs:
Headset weighs ~3.1oz
Tracking range: up to 1.5m, longer ranges reduce accuracy due to the spread of the leds appearing smaller to the camera. 1m is the ideal distance for most cam setups. Shorter distances may induce a skewing effect when looking to the right, so be mindful of camera placement on your setup. If longer ranges are needs, consider getting a zoom lens for your cam. Leds are bright enough to function from a fairly decent distance. Likely 5m+. But a zoom lens will be required due to far away objects appearing smaller to the cam if it doesn't have zoom lens. Smaller spread means they overlap and lose tracking. The IRTrackStar's size provides it a slightly increased range without a zoom lens.

*Returns/exchanges are accepted. Please inspect and try out your tracker as soon as it arrives to ensure everything is functioning properly. Contact me if there is a problem and I'll help you get it squared away.

*Li-Ion battery warning: Li-Ion batteries have rare cases of exploding when over charged or over heated. My headsets use UL Certified batteries that have their own protection circuits, as well as a protection circuit between the battery and charging cable for extra protection. It is normal for the end cap to feel warm to the touch during and shortly after charging, it doesn't indicate a problem. However, if the headset feels hot to the touch for more than a few minutes after charging, is damaged due to a heavy impact, or damaged by excessive heat such as a hot car or fire, please stop using the headset and discard the headset at your local battery disposal drop off.

*Note regarding size. This head tracker is larger than the TrackIR proclip. Roughly 6.5" from front to back. This is because a wider spread makes the headset track better. It has the same affect as sitting closer to the camera with the standard proclip without the perspective warping that comes from sitting too close to the camera.

California Proposition 65 Warning: This product may contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.... I honestly don't know if it does but the headset contains PLA filament, Li-Ion battery, charging board, capacitor, resistor, IR LED's, and a power switch. Don't let kids eat it. Don't let adults eat it. Use as intended. Don't be dumb.

I've been using the RS Ultralight model for a month now, and loving it. Excellent craftsmanship, quality design, very solid build; weight is fine (the battery in my wireless headset - Corsair HS70 Pro - is in the right ear cup, which balances out the whole setup), and plugging it in every time I charge the headset has ensured hours of flying at a time with no issues whatsoever. Tracking is working beautifully (coming from the TrackIR clip pro). Very satisfied customer!

If you make use of a Tracker IR for your longer gaming sessions, this is an absolute must have. Not only does it get rid of the annoying wire of the official Tracker IR Pro Clip, it also somehow VASTLY IMPROVES the tracker performance under bright lights and low light. I am not sure what RJSIMTECH did to improve the IR performance, but it is immediately noticeable. I play long sessions of Star Citizen and X Plane and this little thing is brilliant. RJSIMTECH is a fantastic seller, highly communicative, and builds exceptional products. Thanks again RJSIMTECH!

I love having a wireless head tracker. The IR camera never loses track of this piece and always knows where I want to look. Very nice addition to my simulation set up. You can check out my full review here https://youtu.be/1fEep-6WN8o

Exactly as pictured, super clean looking... it's both light and sturdy at the same time. Also, as far as tracking performance goes : TrackIR picks this thing up EASILY with no hiccups, even quite a ways back from the camera. Love it.
