About Data Acquisition
MoTeC data acquisition systems can be categorised into two types: the stand-alone dedicated data loggers like the ACL and EDL3, and the Dash Loggers such as the ADL3, SDL3 and CDL3 that integrate the display and logging functions in one unit.
The CDL3 is designed to suit entry level motorsport requirements such as club racing. It is a complete, race-ready display and data logging system that can be adapted and expanded to suit various applications.
The CDL3 Track Logging Kit is a complete display and logging solution that is cost-effective and easy to install. The kit includes shift lights, GPS, pre-wired buttons and a plug-in loom. Optionally, an I/O upgrade is available, as are ECU adaptors and other accessories.A non-logging CDL3 Track Display Kit is also available.
The Sport Dash Logger is a digital dash and data logging device with a package of features tailored to suit moderate data acquisition system requirements. The SDL3 offers an affordable price while maintaining the flexibility to suit a broad range of two wheel, four wheel and marine applications.
The ADL3 is the third generation of MoTeC’s Advanced Dash Logger, an all-in-one display, fully programmable data logger and powerful control device. It boasts a number of new features including ten times more processing power than its predecessor, a huge 250 MB logging capability, two individual CAN buses and an internal 3-axis G sensor. The new Advanced Maths features allow for complex calculations based on specified channels.
The Enclosed Dash Logger 3 provides the same logging and controlling features as the ADL3, but is supplied as an enclosed unit. It can be used as a black box type logger or connected to a MoTeC display of your choice.
The Advanced Central Logger is the latest dedicated logging device, designed for race teams who place high demands on their data acquisition system. The ACL forms the heart of a highly configurable system generally consisting of
- various measurement devices such as VIMs (Versatile Input Modules) and PLMs to provide sensor inputs,
- a display device such as an MDD or SDL3. An SDL3 also provides additional input and output capability,
- an output device such as an E888, E816 or SDL3 to control external devices. The ACL controls these devices by communicating via CAN messages.
