AIM MOTORSPORT SOLO-DL GPS LAP TIMER WITH ECU INPUT
The SoloDL from AIM Motorsport is revolutionary lap timer like no other. Using GPS technology instead of beacons and receivers the Solo DL can be used for timing on any circuit, as well as hillclimbs and sprints. The SoloDL has a built in database of race circuits and will recognise which circuit you are at on arrival, which saves you time on setting the system up, so you can literally plug n play.
This DL version has additional inputs via the vehicles OBDII port or through a CAN/RS232 connection, to enable data to be taken from the vehicles ECU. Sampled data depends on the actual ECU but typically includes RPM, engine load, throttle position (TPS), oil / air / water temperature, oil pressure, battery voltage, speed, gear, lambda value (air / fuel ratio). The list of available ECU drivers, constantly updated and upgraded, is published here: it includes approximately 1000 different ECUs, either stock or racing. They are sorted by manufacturer/vehicle model: for each ECU you will find the proprietary communication protocols, including the standard OBDII ones.
Connecting the SoloDL to your ECU (standard or racing ECU) is very simple. To choose which CONNECTION you need to order (CAN or OBDII / K-Line), use the above link to see what ECU connection is used for your application.
The Solo DL can also be connected to either of the SmartyCam HD on-board camera systems to create an even more powerful system which in brief, records the video automatically adding in the overlays and graphical information coming from the ECU and from the GPS (built into the SoloDL).
The feature packed SoloDL lap timer can display a number of lap timing options including -
- Rolling Lap Time
- Static Lap Time
- Predictive Lap Time (as a calculated lap time during your current lap).
- Predictive Lap Time (as a difference between the calculated current lap and best lap time).
The best lap time and lap number are also displayed on the same screen. Different screen displays can be selected to show the information best suited to your needs.
The features don't stop there... If drag racing is more your thing then the Solo DL can cater for you too. The GPS technology and inbuilt accelerometer allows it to record the following -
- 1/4 Mile Times With Terminal Speed
- 1/8 Mile Times
- 0-60 MPH Time
- 0-100 KPH Time
- 0-160 KPH Time
- 100, 400 & 1000m Times
... and if that wasn't enough, The Solo comes with a 'RaceStudio2' software package which allows you to analyse your data via track maps and graphs to show your speed and times at every point on the circuit.
In a nutshell the SoloDL is a lap timer for all kinds of motorsport from circuit racing to drag racing and hillclimbs / sprints. There are no receivers or speed inputs to wire up. Simply plug it into the vehicles OBDII port, or alternatively connect to the vehicles CAN/RS232 wires using the included cable.
