Details

Weighing just 3.1oz, it is the lightest IRTrackStar yet, it's battery is rated at 1000 charge cycle rating with a runtime of 9hrs. With it's new design, the switch and USB C charging port (cable not included) are now located on the rear of the unit.

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


****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 )

*Charging cable is required - A USB C to USB A cable, with a USB A wall adapter rated at 5v 1A (1000mAh) is the recommended charger. Chargers must be a minimum of 1 amp. And must be 5v. Not 6, not 4, ...5v. Chargers with higher amperage than 1A will work. However, chargers higher than 1A may have a PD (power delivery) wire, which is not compatible with this device. You must use a charging cable that does not have a PD wire. Quick charge cables (quick charge cables have a PD wire), C to C cables (also have PD wires), etc are all incompatible. I recommend against charging hubs as well. The simpler the better when it comes to chargers for this device. And don't use a USB port in your PC, those are typically only 0.5 amp. 

*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

*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.

*Do not leave in direct sunlight. Ultraviolet light can cause the plastic to become brittle. Ambient sunlight in the room is fine. 

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 ABS Resin, 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.

Quality product & customer support.

The device itself is awesome & feels well made. The frosting on the LEDs works really well as far as you can turn your head it will track it. The only problem is that for some reason my specific set up it's not working quite right, I get a y axis flip when I turn all the way left/right. Despite this I would still recommend this as it is quality & from all other reports I've seen from other owners it works fine with their opentrack software. I intend to try again when I get a new camera set up. A big shout out to RJsimtech on the discord though, they worked with me trouble shooting the problem until we had exhausted all possible ways to fix my specific problem, this dedication alone is worth me recommending this to others.

The best head tracker solution on the market

Title says it all - its self contained, sexy, lightweight, fits any headset, works better than the stock TrackIR proclip in terms of aspect capture (you can turn your head farther around and TrackIR still sees the TrackStar). Charger is USB C which is super convenient.

Great price, would recommend this to literally anyone who uses any head track application for any PC game.
