MXL2 is the new AiM dashlogger providing all the info needed by professional racers as well as by newbies. The product has been designed with the aim to make configuration and usage smooth and easy either for amateurs and for people with sophisticated technical background. MXL2 acquires and displays data coming from your ECU, the internal accelerometer and gyro, as well as from the GPS module included in the kit, analog/digital inputs and predefined math channels. Performance and data acquired can also be incremented adding up to eight expansion modules.
Internal accelerometer and gyro
You can define up to eight different custom pages, choosing among a wide library of page styles, defining which data to be shown, their end of scale and measure units. Here, examples of pages with 1, 2, 3 or 4 different data and the track map:
The MXL2 display features a high contrast traditional LCD, with a black to white ratio nearly double its predecessor, fused with a graphical LCD offering great flexibility in information display and alerts. The MXL2 now offers a dual colored backlight of high contrast white and red which can also be changed conditionally.An ambient light sensor keeps the backlight at optimum brightness levels.
Six different alarm LEDs: you choose the conditions, the colors and the flashing frequency. You can configure them in order to turn them on/off depending on analog or digital inputs, ECU values, expansion values, GPS information or math channels.
You can also associate an alarm LED a message and a digital output with each event.
MXL2 features two digital outputs. Each of them can give an output of 1 amp at 12 volts: they can be configured in order to be turned on/off depending on the value of the analog or digital inputs. They permit to automatically run external systems, i.e. to switch on/off additional lights, to activate/de-activate a cooling fan or circulation pumps, etc. when a certain event happens.
An integrated shift light is a hallmark of the MXL, but an even better 10 LED shift light array is found in the MXL2. Choose from a host of advanced multicolored RGB shift light patterns that can be customized to your liking, and for each unique gear when required.
Are you an MXL (Strada or Pista) owner? Connecting the MXL2 to your car is very easy.You do not need to cable your car again: just connect the specific adapter harness to your standard AiM MXL harness and immediately exploit the huge potential of the newest MXL2.
Using the built-in CAN bus, you can add expansion modules to the MXL2 to increment the performance and the data acquired:
GPS ModuleThanks to GPS05 Module (included in the kit) and its GPS Manager software, you can immediately get laptimes and all data needed for engine tuning as well as for improving driving technique.
Channel Expansion It permits to add 4 0-5Volt analog channels for pressure, temperature sensors and potentiometers. Two of these channels can be configured to receive digital inputs like wheel speed.
Memory ModuleThanks to the SD Card, Memory Module can record all your data in a file that can be downloaded on your PC for post-analysis. Memory Module, with 16Gb capability, can be connected via CAN-Bus to MXL2 and to all AiM loggers.
Race Studio 3 is the heart of your MXL2, managing all your activities related to:
Configuration With Race Studio 3 you can create, modify, delete, import and export configurations with all channels, ECU drivers, Math channels, Display Pages, Digital outputs, Alarms, Shift Lights and all the expansions you need. You will also be able to manage the map of all your racing tracks and compare two laps watching the video recorded by SmartyCam HD cameras.
Analysis With Race Studio 3 you can also analyse all data recorded by MXL2 and downloaded to your PC: graphs, histograms and tables will help you study your performance, providing an objective support to avoid mistakes and improve performances.
