Re: How to change Can ID for TinyIOx?

Use the port scanner: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1282

Connect only one TIOx to the CAN bus then run the port scanner and change the CAN ID. You can then connect the other one with the default CAN ID to the CAN bus. You can also use the serial port to do that.

Re: Help CAN-EGT Firmware Update

Good to see you got it working.

TunerStudio is a bit more finicky with CAN Id changes than it was before. You really need to go to the project properties when you change the CAN ID to make sure that it will use the correct one.

Re: Help CAN-EGT Firmware Update

I checked the debug log and it says it's trying to use CAN Id 2 which is not the default value. Have you changed this? If you have, you need to go in the project properties and go to the CAN device tab and make sure that the main controller CAN ID is set to the correct value and click ok. If you hav...

Re: Help CAN-EGT Firmware Update

That explains why you don't have the v0.1.5 firmware but it's still strange to have the v0.1.3 firmware. You do get a different error from what you had before. I don't have any issues here on my setup using your project so I can only assume that it is coming from your serial comm connection. One thi...

Re: Help CAN-EGT Firmware Update

One more thing. When did you purchase this unit? From what you say, it came with the v0.1.3 firmware installed. But you had the v0.1.4 ini file? This looks wrong and it should have had the v0.1.5 firmware and ini. I'm not saying that you did something wrong but that the unit was not set with the lat...

Re: Help CAN-EGT Firmware Update

There is a bug with the old firmware when using the serial port. You need to use the v0.1.5 firmware. Your project is fine otherwise.

EDIT: Please send a message to DIYAutotune / AMPEFI so that they update their web site. I have already sent them this update a while ago.

Re: Help CAN-EGT Firmware Update

Do you have the DIYAutotune CAN-EGT or my version? And which firmware did you use for the upgrade? Also, please post your TunerStudio project.

Please run the port scanner and post a screen capture of what you get when you press the 'scan ports' button.

Re: Jeep RENIX differential mag crank sensor signal

From what you describe, that's not really a floating zero-crossing signal but rather a signal that needs to cross some bias voltage value. The JimStim will generate a zero-crossing signal which is why you can use ground as VR- because that's the zero reference. Without knowing what the detection cir...

Re: Just to verify stim setup

You mean OUT2? If there is no current limiting resistor to 5V or ground on the output, it is possible that this could cause a failure. But I'm not sure that this would happen if JS10 was set as an output.

Re: Just to verify stim setup

I assume you already have corrected that. It would have been useful to get a picture of that. All boards are tested before shipping so I know that it was not open when shipped. Is it possible that a solder iron just touched the blob at some point?

Re: Just to verify stim setup

Yes, the solder jumper (solder blob) on the back of the board is used to connect the 5V pad to the rest of the board.

Re: Just to verify stim setup

Use a LED without a resistor between the OUT pad on the dual VR board and ground to get a visual indication. The output on the dual VR board has a 4.7k pull up to 5V. That also means that without any input connection, you should see 5V on the outputs.

Re: Just to verify stim setup

Yes, that's what it should be. Make sure that the jumpers are correctly set and that the capacitor for the VR emulation is correctly soldered on the JimStim. You can also try using VR- with the tach signal and grounding VR+. One way to check the board is to use the 12V pull up and the square wave ju...

Re: Jeep RENIX differential mag crank sensor signal

I'm not sure what you mean about the floating signal and it not being tied to ground. Can you elaborate on this and give a link to whee you got the information that you would need a transformer? I should add that if you use the VR emulator tach signal on the JimStim, the signal is not tied to ground...

Re: Je penses avoir brisé le jimstim

Sans enlever le CPU, c'est difficile d’être catégorique mais c'est presque certain que le CPU est brûlé si tu n'as plus la diode D4 et que U2 chauffe encore. C'est très rare que U2 soit le problème.

Re: Je penses avoir brisé le jimstim

Si tu es chanceux, c'est seulement D4 qui est le problème. Tu peux essayer de désouder une patte de la diode (ou la couper) et essayer de rallumer le JimStim. La diode D4 n'est pas essentielle au fonctionnement mais protège (dans certains cas) des situations comme un short. Si ça marche, tu peux sim...

Re: TinyIOx with Innovate MTX and wheel speeds for logging.

If you can send CAN messages to then receive the needed data, you would be able to get all the data you want. The speed data would require one message and you'd get back 4 speed values (assuming you use the 16-bit values which should be fine). For analog data, you can get up to 4 values per message ...
