VBOX displays offer real-time results feedback, and can be used to set up or configure VBOX data loggers. The advantage of using a display is the speed and convenience of altering test parameters or verifying data during the procedures themselves; sometimes the ability to abort a run, often only possible when in-vehicle viewing of data is available, can greatly reduce the amount of track time required.
The Multi-Function Touch Display (MFD Touch) is the perfect accessory for anyone with a VBOX 3i data logger. It is designed to show data from GPS derived channels, such as speed and heading, that are outputted from a VBOX 3i. It can also calculate and present performance test results live from the vehicle.
Furthermore, it has a 4.3” daylight readable, responsive colour touchscreen, that is extremely customisable. The screen layouts can be configured directly on the device, and you can choose which channels you wish to see for each test. Alternatively, you can choose to see a G-ball or analogue display on the screen, alongside three other channels.
The MFD Touch can be mounted directly on the windscreen and comes with a heavy-duty suction cup. It also provides audio and visual alerts, via the inbuilt speaker and LED status lights, to show when a user defined data condition or test condition (such as a target speed) has been met. This ensures that the driver knows exactly when to perform a particular action, such as applying the brake pedal.
The Multi-function Touch Display shows the test driver several different parameters and VBOX channels, live from the vehicle. The displayed parameters can be configured and changed for each test, directly on the device, making the MFD Touch the ideal display for anyone that wishes to see speed, average speed, distance travelled, number of satellites, deceleration data, brake trigger data and even radius of turn, on a 4.3” TFT colour touchscreen.
Typical applications include:
There are ten different screens that you can scroll between and 8 fixed layouts to choose from for each. This can be done directly on the device as you have the ability to choose which channels you wish to see for each test. You can even see your data in a horizontal bar graph, target graph, analogue gauge or G-ball. Additionally, performance test results can be viewed instantly on the 4.3” TFT screen, as well as written to an SD card.
Up to six parameters can be displayed on a single screen, such as speed, lateral & longitudinal acceleration, radius of turn, distance travelled, heading and various brake test channels.
General parameters are taken from a standard RACELOGIC CAN output from the VBOX 3i.
Brake test parameters are commonly used in brake testing, the majority of which require the use of the VBOX brake pedal trigger.
The OLED Display provides sharp graphics and is simple to use. It can even be used in bright conditions to show a wide range of parameters including live and max speed, lap times, and predictive lap timing.
You can also use the OLED display to start and stop logging when used in conjunction with some VBOX data loggers, as well as report logging status. It is available in either a waterproof anodised blue aluminium case, or a splash proof plastic and aluminium case. Different connections are available (Fischer, Lemo, Mini Din, Hirose) depending on the type of unit you will be using it with.
The OLED Display has different display modes, accessed using the Up and Down buttons. The data on each screen is calculated at all times, even if it is not currently displayed.
The OLED Display can invert screen colours or display the font as a high contrast outline to match lighting conditions.
The VBOX Manager is a versatile control unit that has been designed to provide in-depth control of the VBOX 3i dual antenna setup, ADAS functions and IMU integration.
It can also be used to compliment VBOX 3i, VBOX III, and VBOX IISX GPS data logging systems by providing an easy to use graphical interface for control of logging functions.
Housed in a compact enclosure, the VBOX Manager is equipped with a clear graphical LCD and rotary, push-button controller.
VBOX Manager has six control options to choose from.
The Microsoft Surface Pro in-car accessories kit consists of an adjustable spring-loaded windscreen RAM Mount and data cables for connection to VBOX products, allowing for the real-time monitoring of application test data. The accessories kit can also be purchased with a Microsoft Surface Pro directly from RACELOGIC if required.
Our free data analysis software, VBOX Test Suite, is compatible the with Microsoft Surface Pro and you can download the latest version from our software page.
Package contents: 1x X-Grip III™ adjustable RAM mount, 1x RAM Twist lock suction mount, 1x USB to Serial adapter cable, 1x Lemo to RS232 serial data transfer cable and 1x USB Type ‘A’ to Type ‘B’ 2 m cable.
The Racelogic CAN Display is a versatile tool for displaying real-time CAN data. Intended for use by both test engineers and network engineers, the CAN Display is capable of displaying Raw CAN frames and individual CAN signals from a CAN database.
The CAN Display has a free, built-in CAN database of limited signals. It covers parameters like engine RPM, throttle, and wheel speeds for the following makes: Mercedes, BMW, VAG, Porsche, Ferrari, SAAB, Nissan, Mazda, Vauxhall, Jaguar, Fiat, Alfa, Renault, Citroën, Peugeot, and Toyota.
The CAN Display also has the facility to associate database files, so if the user has a DBC format database file for the vehicle that they are working on, the CAN Display can decode and display signals from the database.
The PC software supplied with the CAN Display allows the user to read and download up to 64 signals from their own industry standard DBC format database.
As well as being able to monitor a number of parameters on the CAN Bus, the CAN Display will also output one of these parameters as an analogue voltage. This makes the CAN Display into a CAN to analogue converter, and if you use the internal database, it is a very convenient method of obtaining Engine RPM or roadspeed from a vehicle.
VBOX CAN Display has five menu options to choose from.
