RLACS252 Drive by noise roadside caseRoadside Case (RLACS252) for Pass-by Noise Testing

This case is placed near the Sound Level Meters by the roadside. It can hold the Mini Input Module, 2.4 GHz telemetry radio (RLRTM24MBC) and Li-ion battery (RLACS112L).

To improve the radio range between the sound level meters and the test vehicle, it is recommended to raise the height of the antenna. Racelogic supply an antenna mounting plate (RLACS254) which can be attached to a camera tripod.

Dimensions (L x H x W):  270 x 120 x 240 mm


Motorbike Case (RLACS253)

This case is used for Pass-by Noise Testing but can be installed on motorcycles/scooters for other testing. It can hold the VBOX 3i, CAN splitters, 2.4 GHz telemetry radio (RLRTM24MBS), Base Station radio (2.4Ghz or Satel) and Li-ion battery (RLACS112L). It has mounting brackets as well as a GPS ground plane.

Dimensions: (L x H x W):  340 x 145 x 305 mm

Triggers & Switches

Posted in Accessories

Brake Pedal Trigger

Precise measurement of brake pedal application during VBOX brake stop tests

The brake trigger event time capture is stored in internal memory and stamped into the VBO file to interpolate the speed between GPS samples which is the key component for a high accuracy brake stop distance calculation.

Datasheet

  RLVBACS004 Brake-Pedal-Trigger

Brake Trigger Interface

The Racelogic brake trigger interface module it is possible to conduct brake stop tests without employing a traditional brake pedal trigger.

This is ideal if the vehicle is already installed with a brake pressure sensor and cannot therefore also use a brake pedal trigger.

The interface is connected to the vehicle's high 12V brake light system, and when the brakes are applied, converts it into an active low 0V signal which acts as a trigger event for the VBOX. Connection to the VBOX is via Lemo.

  RLVBACS157 Brake-trigger-interface

Hand-Held Brake Trigger/ Event Marker

Rugged and lightweight switch mainly used for event marking or to start tests where the placement of a light barrier is not viable.

The hand-held brake trigger is only active when the button is depressed.

  RLVBACS010 Hand-held-brake-trigger

Light Barrier Kit

The Racelogic Light Barrier kit (RLVBACS063) comprises of an optical sensor with power and trigger output connections, a Culman suction mount with a metal mounting plate for the optical sensor and a square plastic reflector plate.

The trigger cable from the light barrier unit connects directly with the trigger input of a VBOX and the power cable can connect to any of the 5 way lemo connectors on a VBOX to pickup power.

The kit is often employed in drive-by noise tests where volume output must be measured at exactly the same point in every instance.

  RLVBACS063 Light-barrier-kit

Laser Light Barrier Kit

Consistent logging of event marking and triggers.

The Racelogic Laser Light Barrier kit (RLACS189) comprises of an optical sensor with power and trigger output connections, a Bohle suction mount with a metal mounting plate for the optical sensor and 2m of reflective tape.

  Prod-Laser-light-barrier-ACS189

Start/ Stop Logging Switch

Rugged and lightweight switch used for starting and stopping the data logging

The switch is a latching push switch that, when in the open position, starts the data logging and when in the closed position stops the data logging.

The latching feature eliminates the need for constant pressure to be applied to the switch, ensuring that the driver of the vehicle can keep two hands on the steering wheel.

Antennas and Mounts

Posted in Accessories

Overview

RLVBACS170 RRacelogic provide a number of different antenna options, depending upon the measurement system, the type of vehicle being used and the surrounding conditions.

Standard magnetic "patch" antennas are suitable where they have an unrestricted view of the sky and a good metallic ground plane, such as a car roof.

However, the quality of the signal received can be reduced by reflections from surrounding buildings, trees, and other obstructions. This is known as multipath and can result in increased noise and reduced accuracy.

Effects of noisy GPS signals

  • Less accurate general performance results. If the vehicle test is using speed as a start or end condition then the test could be started or stopped at the wrong time, leading to incorrect results
  • Less accurate Lateral and Longitudinal acceleration data
  • Less accurate Radius Of Turn and Centre Line Deviation tests
  • Less accurate slip angle tests
  • Less accurate vehicle position / driveline

CAN Splitter Boxes

The RLVBACS024 allows more than one 5-Way Lemo   connection to be made to one 5-Way Lemo socket on a VBOX.

This is most commonly used to allow an RS232 and a CAN connection to be made into the same socket.

The RLVBACS024/1 additionally has a Simplex RS232 socket for PC connection in vehicle separation tests.

  RLVBACS002-CAN-Splitter

Digital Input Splitter Box

The RLVBACS027 enables more than one brake trigger to be used with a VBOX, or a brake trigger along with a start/stop logging switch.

  RLVBACS027 Digital-input-splitter

IMU Roof Mount

For use with the IMU04.

The IMU Roof Mount allows for an IMU04 to be placed directly on the vehicle roof, co-located with the GPS antenna.

It is the easiest and most accurate method of mounting the unit.

USB to Serial Connecter

RLVBACS035 can be used with laptop computers that do not have a standard 9-way D type RS232 port.

  RLVBACS035 USB-to-Serial-connector

Clip-on CAN Interface

Tap into the CAN Bus without a physical connection.

The RLACS182 provides a quick and convenient way of tapping onto a CAN Bus when recording vehicle signals.

Available with either Mini-Din or Lemo connectors, the RLACS182 is suitable for use with most Racelogic systems.

Power Supplies and Printers

Posted in Accessories

VBOX Power Backup

Maintains power supply to the VBOX 3i for up to 20 seconds to prevent data loss and the need to repeat system initialisation procedures such as IMU Kalman filter calibration.

Undesired power loss can happen during engine cranking, when the vehicle stalls, or the VBOX has been disconnected too early.

  Accessories VBPBU

5Ahr 12V Li-ion Battery Pack

A battery pack is especially useful if you cannot access the auxiliary power supply of your car or motorcycle, or if you want to avoid accidental data loss which can happen when the unit is power cycled before the data has been transmitted.

  Accessories ASC112

Thermal Printer

The RLVBACS026 is a rechargeable battery powered thermal printer for use with the Racelogic Multi-Function Display.

Printing functions include automatic printing of acceleration, deceleration, brake testing and lap timing results.

The printer is supplied complete with NiMH battery pack, mains charger and cable for connection to Racelogic Multi-Function Display.
