Ninja Control Shell Racer
Time to turtle up - Leo has a bold and daring plan
The Ninja Control Shellraiser uses a wireless infrared remote control and is designed for indoor play. The remote may not control the Shellraiser outside, especially in strong sunlight. You must stay within 15-20 feet to control the Shellraiser accurately. Beyond 20 feet, the infrared signal may not reach the Shellraiser. The remote must be pointed directly at the receiver on the top front of the Shellraiser at all times. The remote signal can be blocked by Turtle figures you place on the Shellraiser, open hatch covers, or even furniture that comes between the remote and the Shellraiser. See box insert for additional Ninja Training Tips on using the Shell racer remote.
Infrared (IR) remote control systems operate using infrared light waves to transmit signals from a remote control to a device. Here's a basic breakdown of how they work:
Button Press: When a button is pressed on the remote control, it triggers a specific command to be sent to the device.
Signal Conversion: This command is converted into a specific binary code. Each button on the remote has its unique binary code.
Infrared LED: The remote control contains an infrared LED (Light Emitting Diode). The binary code is used to modulate the output from this LED, turning it on and off at a specific frequency. This rapid on-off pulsing creates a pattern that represents the binary code of the command.
Transmission: The modulated infrared light waves are emitted from the remote's LED and travel through the air.
Device's IR Receiver: The device (like a TV or stereo) has an infrared receiver, often a small, dark-colored bulb or window on the device's front. This receiver detects the incoming infrared light waves.
Decoding: Once the IR receiver captures the signal, the device decodes the binary pattern back into the command.
Execution: The device then executes the command, such as changing the channel or adjusting the volume.
IR remote control systems require a clear line of sight between the remote and the device's receiver because infrared signals cannot pass through walls or other solid objects. This is why you typically need to point the remote directly at the device for it to work.
