Re: Ruggedized ECU

Wow Jean, that's a pretty comprehensive reply! Contrary to what I said before I think this might go on a Panhard development engine...I know it's too good for that Just looking at A1-3 reading 0-5V, I'm wondering whether these could "read" a fuel pressure sensor and output a PWM signal on OUT1-6 to ...

Re: Ruggedized ECU

Jean,
Is there any documentation, pin outs etc for this board on your site? I have just done a search, seen the IOX stuff, but seen nothing about this rascal.
Thanks
Mike

Was this the reason you were having issues with the OPTO stuff and your MAX 9926 chip with the Module board?

Re: Ruggedized ECU

Yee haa, that looks good, but I'm biased :D
Keep up the good work.

PS Like the idea of a knock sensor board, would be a nice tweak and good for developmental work (tuning the ignition map/fuelling etc) :)
PPS Here's hoping you've got small hands ;) :lol:

Re: Ruggedized ECU

Excellent news...thanks for the update. Like the idea of using a jumper rather than bridging solder pads, easier to configure or change. 8-) Smaller enclosure is good for motorcycles/quads etc. Differential twin VR inputs work well for me, as you know. :) Realistically what do you think is a likely ...

Re: New board: Dual VR 2.0

I have the schematics and because I never scrolled down to the Ampseal page, I missed the v3 Ampseal that is pin compatible with v1 & v2 cased MicroSquirts does have one difference, pin20 on the v3 is a VR2- input, not a GROUND_SENSOR as before. So there really is no need to try and use the Dual VR ...

Re: New board: Dual VR 2.0

It only works with B&G 2.x firmware and versions of the v2 MicroSquirt products, and not the 3.x series using the v3 MicroSquirt. I need to understand the inbuilt MAX9926 & OPTO circuit relationships, because I hope to have only one wiring loom configuration for my bike for all firmwares. At the mom...

Re: New board: Dual VR 2.0

Jean , your boards came today thank you, and I was able to play some more. I have now successfully got all my cased MicroSquirts running MSExtra 3.1.0 or B&G 2.891 to detect RPMs at very low speeds and all of them are wired like this... o---- VR1+ |----- +crank sensor o-----VR1- |----- -crank senso...

Re: Ruggedized ECU

However, I have the same feeling as Don on this and am afraid it could bring some problems that would be difficult to solve. OK Jean, but I would still consider the case with a breather vent though, as it improves the heat dissipation, according to their site info. Personally, it doesn't matter to ...

Re: Ruggedized ECU

I thought of that but I don't know if the vented feature means there is some time delay between atmospheric pressure and case pressure. If this still allows a significant pressure differential and/or it takes a while to equalize pressure then that would make having an on-board baro sensor dubious a...

VR cam sensor, Dual VR Board & cased MicroSquirts

I am creating a new topic here, because I think the Dual VR Board is the such a massive solution to the VR cam sensing issues I have had with all my cased MicroSquirts, that I need to share it with you all. I have never really had an issue with crank sensing, but my MicroSquirt enabled motorcycle co...

Re: New board: Dual VR 2.0

Jean , just had another play, but this time using a cased MicroSquirt loaded with B&G 2.891, and the same 4+1 crank & cam set up. This worked from 30 RPM to 1500 no issues, with no diodes, or resistors fitted. This was needed previously, but the real test will be at higher revs. Also used the pin 2...

Re: New board: Dual VR 2.0

Jean, right you are again :) Pin 4 not 5

The VR1- & VR2- are not floating, but as you suspected all connected, just didn't know how to show it. :oops:

PS The eight round bits under your Dual VR Board were the un-potted terminals, four either side. :lol:

I look forward to see what you get from the opto input and thanks for doing those tests and sharing the results. Must have just missed the post, as I was updating it. OPTO side works well thank you, so just to recap for a cased MicroSquirt. I'm not very good with these! MicroSquirt Pins -----------...

Re: New board: Dual VR 2.0

Sorry Jean , I thought I put it in the post, but must have put it elsewhere. Basically the VR1 side, aka the crankshaft sensing is left alone, so I have only used the VR2 conditioning side of your board to date. Essentially all I did was split the existing VR2+ sensor input (brown & white wire) and ...

Re: New board: Dual VR 2.0

So the way to make this work (maybe) would be to connect 5V to optoIN+ and the dual VR board output to optoIN-. That would mean the on board 1K pull up would basically be bypassed and the voltage and current would come from the 5V on the optoIN+. And the MAX9926 can handle the current from the opto...

Re: Ruggedizing Case/Hardware to High End Commercial Standar

... I wish I could simply do my own complete board which would get rid of a bunch of useless components and be a hell of a lot cheaper. And it could fit in a nice tiny enclosure... Have you had any info from Bruce or Al about the MicroSquirt Version 3. I know it uses an 35 pin Ampseal, but the boar...
