Aim MXL2 Dash Motorcycle Racing Datalogger for Motorsports is the new Aim dashlogger providing all the info needed by professional racers as well as by newbies. The MXL2 has been designed with the aim to make configuration and usage smooth and easy either for amateurs and for people with sophisticated technical background.
A WIDE RANGE OF DATA SOURCES
The MXL2 acquires and displays data coming from your ECU, the internal accelerometer and gyro, as well as from the GPS08 module included in the kit, analog/digital inputs and predefined math channels.
Performance and data acquired can also be incremented adding up to eight expansion modules.Sharp Liquid Crystal
AiM systems acquire data from the ECU of your vehicle. The list of available ECU drivers, constantly updated and upgraded, is published here: it includes over 1,000 different ECUs, either Stock and Racing. They are sorted by manufacturer/vehicle model: for each ECU you find the proprietary communication protocols, including the standard OBDII ones.
From a hardware point of view, AiM systems manage the following data lines:
AiM systems analog inputs are recorded up to 1000 times per second each. You can connect and monitor all kinds of sensors, like:
- Ratiometric potentiometers
- Pressure sensors
- K-type thermocouples
... and many others, all your custom sensors included.
Aim systems also feature digital inputs:
- Speed signals - From the ECU, from the GPS and from the wheel sensors.
- RPM - From the ECU or from a digital input connected to a square wave signal (8 to 50 V) or to a low voltage (from 150 to 400 V) of the coil.
- Lap signal - Lap and split times are sampled by the GPS or via optical receiver/transmitter.
MXL2 DASH SECOND CAN
An innovative AiM systems feature is its CAN2 line, managing data coming from your additional modules (i.e. ABS, traction control, infrared temperature sensors and more...).
This feature meets the requirements of a growing number of racers, as the use of additional modules is becoming quite common in a number of series.
INTERNAL ACCELEROMETER AND GYRO
The internal three-axial accelerometer and the gyroscope provide the AiM systems a very powerful array of information. These force and motion sensors enable you to quantify the dynamic characteristics of your vehicle.
Measuring acceleration forces and gyro rates can assist in determining how to improve your vehicle performances.
With AiM systems you immediately get Math Channels values: the dash logger can be configured to display those values (i.e. brake bias, calculated gear) in real time.
With the CAN Output you can send messages directly to an existing CAN network in order to improve the range of vehicle control possibilities.
FREELY CONFIGURABLE PAGES
The MXL2 Dash Car Racing Datalogger allows you to define up to eight different custom pages, choosing among a wide library of page styles, defining which data to be shown, their end of scale and measure units.
Here, examples of pages with 1, 2, 3 or 4 different data:
SHARP LIQUID CRYSTAL
The MXL2 display features a high contrast traditional LCD, with a black to white ratio nearly double its predecessor, fused with a graphical LCD offering great flexibility in information display and alerts. The MXL2 now offers a dual colored backlight of high contrast white and red which can also be changed conditionally. An ambient light sensor keeps the backlight at optimum brightness levels.
Six different alarm LEDs: you choose the conditions, the colors and the flashing frequency. You can configure them in order to turn them on/off depending on analog or digital inputs, ECU values, expansion values, GPS information or math channels.
You can also associate an alarm LED a message and a digital output with each event.
TWO DIGITAL OUTPUTS
The MXL2 Dash Car Racing Datalogger features two digital outputs. Each of them can give an output of 1 amp at 12 volts: they can be configured in order to be turned on/off depending on the value of the analog or digital inputs.
They permit to automatically run external systems, i.e. to switch on/off additional lights, to activate/de-activate a cooling fan or circulation pumps, etc. when a certain event happens. more info
INTEGRATED SHIFT LIGHT ARRAY
An integrated shift light is a hallmark of the MXL, but an even better 10 LED shift light array is found in the MXL2. Choose from a host of advanced multicolored RGB shift light patterns that can be customized to your liking, and for each unique gear when required.
ADAPTER HARNESS FOR MXL STRADA/PISTA
Are you an MXL (Strada or Pista) owner? Connecting the MXL2 to your car is very easy. You do not need to cable your car again: just connect the specific adapter harness to your standard AiM MXL harness and immediately exploit the huge potential of the newest MXL2.
Aim designed a tailor made adapter to allow an easy switch from the MXL to the newest MXL2. Just connect this harness to your standard MXL cable and the MXL2 will be ready to use. A specific adapter has been designed for Radical cars, as they feature a dedicated loom which are the Generic adapter harness and Radical adapter harness more info
Lightweight aluminum mil-spec Motorsport connectors now standard on the MXL2.
RACE STUDIO 3
Race Studio 3 is the heart of your MXL2, managing all your activities related to Configuration & Analysis.
With Race Studio 3 you can create, modify, delete, import and export configurations with all channels, ECU drivers, Math channels, Display Pages, Digital outputs, Alarms, Shift Lights and all the expansions you need. You will also be able to manage the map of all your racing tracks and compare two laps watching the video recorded by SmartyCam HD cameras. (Download Race Studio 3 Here)
