Re: TinyIOx AFR data from LC-1 going to 22.4

That looks to be a similar behaviour where you have many errors and then many full lean readouts.

Re: TinyIOx AFR data from LC-1 going to 22.4

That datalog does show that there are also many errors because the 8.0 value does show up almost as much as the 22.4 value. I don't know how your gauge is connected to the LC-2 or how the LC-2 handles its analog output when there are errors (if that's how your gauge is connected) but there are defin...

Re: Wheel Translator Board

You don't need to figure out some code from somewhere else. You 'just' need to get the MS3 developers to modify their existing code to allow it to be used without a cam signal. That code modification should be quite simple but I haven't seen the latest MS3 code so that's only speculation. Trying to ...

Re: Wheel Translator Board

So my question is how many teeth could your board read and what vehicle was it intended to be used on? 135 works for 5 and 6 cylinders because you can divide by 5 and get a virtual 45-1. This works for a 5 cylinder with 18 teeth between ignition events (but you do need a cam signal) and it works fo...

Re: MS3 Pro Ultimate and accelerometer

You say that the calibration is correct but if you do not get the correct value with the g gauges then it is not correct. You can have the raw data at the same time as the g data so check what you get when you do the calibration for -1g and +1g. Post pictures of the gauges for both raw data and g da...

Re: P&H boards and parts availability

These drivers are designed for injectors that need a 4A/1A peak/hold current and that's exactly what is needed for the Billet Atomizers. I don't personally have any experience with them and usually I don't get details of what the boards are used for. But I do get feedback when there are problems and...

Re: P&H boards and parts availability

I don't have an MS3X available to check it at this time but I don't think you can fit 2 boards with the MS3X board and all the required wiring inside the standard case. And that would also generate quite a bit of heat. The best setup I've seen for 2 p&h boards and a standard MS3X is this (I'd like t...

Re: Wheel Translator Board

The wheel translator would likely not be of any help because of the number of teeth on your setup. You need a divider that will result in a number of teeth between about 30 to 60 teeth but you also need that resulting number to meet the MS2 requirements for the number of teeth. That is a number that...

Please give more information on your hardware especially on the IOx. I'm not sure which accelerometer you have. A picture would help. And how did you calibrate the accelerometer in the MS3?

The v1.1 boards are in stock but I only sell the bare boards now and you have to procure the components yourself. I haven't checked for all components but the LM1949 is in stock at Digikey and Mouser; the other components have alternatives. I have no idea what the MS3Pro problems are. But to use the...

Re: V2.1 on a 944

While I don't have personal experience with this setup nor do I have explicit user feedback on it, the dual VR board should work fine with those sensors. As for setting this up, the MS2 does not have a specific setting for it and it cannot be used with other generic modes. The MS3 has a mode for it ...

Re: TinyIOx - Lag Factors and Setting up oil transducer

Yes that's the same type of lag factor and it would provide some smoothing. However, there are some artifact from the computation which are more pronounced when a lot of smoothing is done where the actual value is never reached if the input remains constant. It will work ok when the value read goes ...

Re: Will tinyiox play nice?

There is no conflict between the Microsquirt IO box and the TinyIOx. With the MS3Pro, you will need to house the TIOx in some sort of enclosure and use a 5V supply (I'm not sure how much current drain the MS3Pro can handle on its external 5V supply). Any accelerometer with an analog output could be ...

Re: TinyIOX causing MS3 to shutdown

The only thing I have seen that would cause a TinyIOx to act like a short is if a voltage significantly higher than 5V is applied to either an input pin or to power. Since you have 2 unit affected that would seem like something happened to the 5V supply even though you say nothing happened. If you c...

Re: testing the 2wire PWM idle valve.

The JimStim is not designed to be used with high current devices. The traces could handle a reasonable current without issue but there are other components on many of the I/O pins from the MS. On the outputs where there are LEDs, these are powered from 5V and I don't think they are rated for a 12V r...
