ACL

ACL S21

MoTeC's Central Logging System consists of an Advanced Central Logger (ACL) plus multiple Versatile Input Modules (VIMs). It can be integrated into a complete electronics solution with a number of other MoTeC devices for display, engine management, power distribution, Lambda measurement, lap timing and shift lights, all communicating on CAN.

This compatibility makes the Central Logging System equally suitable for expanding an existing data system as for the foundation of an all new installation.

Below are some examples of configurations, but several other solutions are also possible. Please contact your authorised MoTeC dealer to discuss how to integrate a Central Logging System to suit your application.

Examples

Central Logging example1 A8

A solution for those with an existing ADL2 Dash Logger:
  • Display: ADL2

  • Outputs: ADL2

  • Data storage: add ACL for up to 1 GB extra logging capacity with fast Ethernet download

  • Inputs: keep existing ADL2 wiring—transfer data via CAN to ACL

  • Buttons: into ADL2

  • Telemetry: from ADL2

  • Communications: 2 wire CAN bus communication with all connected devices such as M800 ECU, BR2 Beacon Receiver and PLM Lambda Meter


Central Logging example2 A8
A solution for an all new system installation:
  • Display: SDL Sport Dash Logger (display-only option), including multiple pages for Warm up, Practice and Race

  • Outputs: SDL to operate shift lights, E816 Expansion unit to run other outputs

  • Data storage: ACL with up to 1 GB logging capacity and fast Ethernet download

  • Inputs: sensor inputs into SDL and VIMs.

  • Buttons: into SDL

  • Telemetry: from ACL

  • Communications: 2 wire CAN bus communication with all connected devices such as M800 ECU, BR2 Beacon Receiver and PLM Lambda Meter
