- In most cases, the AiM device will be already correctly configured. If this is not the case, follow the steps below:
- Connect the compatible AiM device to a PC and depending on the product, open either AiM software program RaceStudio2 or RaceStudio3.
- Ensure the correct vehicle is selected and then click on the 'SmartyCam Stream' tab. This will list all of the standard SmartyCam channels that are transmitted from the AiM device alongside vehicle specific CAN channels which are chosen by the software to match these standard channels.
- Enable all channels available to the AiM from the connected ECU.
- 'Transmit’ to save the configuration to the AiM device.
AiM devices should be connected via the Race Technology AiM adaptor cable(s):
- Race Technology supply two variants of Aim adaptor cable. One variant connects an RT data logger & dash display. The other variant connects a RT data logger or dash display only.
The below variant connects the compatible AiM device to an RT data logger & dash display. In the image below, the AiM device is connected to an RT LIVE & DASH4PRO:
Note - The RT data logger is powered from the AiM device, meaning an external power supply is not required.
The below variant connects the compatible AiM device to a RT data logger or dash display only. The below image shows the AiM adaptor connected to the AiM device & ready to connect to a RT data logger or dash display only:
