The C187 is a professional level Display Logger featuring a generous, full colour screen. It comes standard with 250 MB internal logging memory and MoTeC's world-renowned i2 data analysis software. A Pro option is available for expert analysis.

C187s now offer the convenience and flexibility of USB Logging, an optional upgrade that can be enabled in the field at any time. This upgrade also increases the internal memory to 500 MB. In addition, recently built models provide three composite video inputs for a live camera feed on the display screen.*

The vivid 176mm screen (approx 7") is high resolution, ultra bright and anti-reflective for easy reading in direct sunlight. Choose from numerous selectable layouts and configure the channels, labels and colours to suit. Or, opt for the Display Creator upgrade and treat your screen as a blank canvas with unique graphics, images, logos and custom icons. Create multiple pages to suit different scenarios, optimising the screen space for your application.

An array of 16 full colour LEDs is integrated into the unit for use as shift lights, warning lights or other driver alerts. The colour, function and intensity of each LED is programmable, allowing users to develop their own unique strategies and sequences.

Note: This product has recently changed part number (PN) due to a component modification. All functionality remains the same, however the case dimensions and weight have changed slightly from PN 18051.
