Configuration / DASH2PRO

Configuring the DASH2 PRO

The DASH2 PRO can be configured by direct connection to a PC through the USB port or by loading the configuration file on to the internal memory card inside the unit. The unit has a default configuration from the factory. This configuration has the following settings for the analogue channels:

  1. Fuel level
  2. Water temperature
  3. Oil temperature
  4. Oil pressure
  • RPM is configured to come from the internal high level RPM sensor
  • All other data channels are set up to come from the serial data input
  • Screen 1 is configured to show fuel level, water temperature and oil pressure
  • All other screens are turned off

To change the configuration, start up the DASH2 PRO configuration software.

The software is broadly split in to the following sections:

INPUT CONTROL

  • External inputs Inputs connected to the analogue inputs or frequency inputs
  • ECU interfaces - Built in serial and CAN based ECU interfaces
  • Unit control inputs - connecting inputs to control the unit, such as start/stop or add marker
  • Internal sensors built in sensors such as GPS, gyro, accelerometers
  • CAN inputs Configure CAN bus data for logging or display

VARIABLE MAPPING - specifying where each channel of data comes from

OUTPUT CONTROL

  • Output drivers - On/Off or PWM output drivers
  • Flash card storage what is stored to the memory card
  • Output serial data what data is transmitted on the serial port
  • Output CAN data what data is transmitted on the CAN ports
  • Alarms Alerting the driver to conditions which need attention

DISPLAY CONTROL

  • Setup display Configure the backlight brightness and display contrast
  • Setup shift lights Configure the six shift lights across the top of the unit
  • Setup gear indicator Configure where gear information is calculated or taken from
  • Setup RPM scale Set the scaling on the RPM scale as well as the telltale indicator and filtering
  • Setup speed readout Set whether or not the speed is shown, where the data is taken from and the units used
  • Setup LCD data areas The main configuration for what data is shown where on the screen
  • Configure configuration sets Set up different screens for different drivers and different modes of operation

Other functions

  • Alarms Alerting the driver to conditions which need attention
  • Car computer functions Display information on how much fuel is remaining or hours of engine use
  • Lap timing Set up how lap timing information is displayed on the unit
  • Variable reset group Set which variables can be reset to zero for looking at changes in ride height etc.

In addition to the configuring of the display and the inputs on the DASH2 PRO, vehicle options can be set up for power measurements or other constants which are required. These are accessed from the Options / Vehicle Options menu.
