DASH2 PRO - Enhancement options
As standard the DASH2 PRO includes the following (units purchased after 1st July 2017):
GPS Data Logging and 2g Accelerometers
A complete data logger and display in a single compact package. Featuring lap and sector times along with live timeslip using GPS, and accelerometers for measuring grip usage. Data is logged to internal memory and downloaded via USB.
Advanced Options Bundle
Using the data processing power of the DASH2 PRO, this option allows for more advanced features to be configured.
Car computer functions
Alarms based on time for power on, time for engine on, time over a certain RPM
Low fuel warning based on number of laps, distance, or time remaining.
Configure alarms based on up to three conditions
Multiple options for clearing alarms
Trigger low side driver outputs based on alarms
Multiple display options when alarms triggered
Use shiftlights to display any variable
Enable different shiftlights in each gear
Change colour options for shiftlights
Advanced RPM scale
Use a different variable to drive the bargraph
Configure a different RPM scale at low temperature
Advanced unit control inputs
Use an analogue input to switch between screens at different voltages
Use analogue inputs as extra buttons to give up to 16 extra buttons
Advanced screen display functions
Apply custom update rates and filtering to each displayed value
Hide variables on the screen unless certain conditions are met
Apply custom formula to each displayed value
Advanced lap timing display
Display additional lap timing information across the bottom of the screen
Display maximum cornering force, minimum cornering speed or maximum speed for each sector
Display detailed and summary lap timing statistics at the end of each session
Optional enhancement options are shown below:
An upgrade to the 2g accelerometers in the GPS data logging option. 6g accelerometers are recommended for use on high downforce vehicles, where more grip is available.
Low Side Drivers and 4 Extra Analogue ChannelsLow side output drivers and 4 extra analogue inputs is the option you will require if you want to switch on/off external systems automatically using your DASH2 PRO. This control can be simple or based on a complicated custom equation between various channel data. This option also enables the 4 additional analogue channels, making a total of 8.
PWM Output ControllerThe PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) output controller generates a pulsed output between 100-1000Hz, at a duty cycle controlled by a user equation. This output allows for a fine control of an output system rather than just a simple on/off control. This is ideal for water injection systems etc.
Second Serial PortA second serial port is ideal for combining multiple input and output modules for complex systems, or driving a low speed telemetry channel on one port and a high speed output for video overlay on the second. A breakout cable is supplied with this option to enable easy connection of the separate serial ports. Serial port 2 is for receiving data only, serial port 1 can both transmit and receive data.
Built-in ECU Interface
The DASH2 PRO can decode serial data directly from an ECU without the need for a separate interface cable. This feature allows a simpler, neater installation, and allows the decoding of more channels than with a separate interface. Enable and disable any channels for a completely bespoke set up, logging as much or as little data as is required. Record raw serial data at 4800, 9600 and 115200 baud rates, which can be useful for fault diagnosis and development.
