Data logging

Post by Mr Fro » Mon Feb 27, 2017 4:40 pm

I couldn't decide if this belonged in here or Pitstop so feel free to move it Mod people. :-)

My swish ignition stuff should arrive in the next couple of days and I'd like to log the live data from it but the manufacturers don't support logging.

Is there a way to extract and save the live data - rpm, MAP, advance, lambda etc in excel or some other form for later review?

Here's the software:
Ignition
Lambda

Hi Mr Fro does your soft and hardware support an OBD cable for connection to a laptop :)

Don't think so. It comes with a serial plug (the spiky monitor like one) and a USB adapter for it.

The software reads data from the bike modules but doesn't write it anywhere. All I need is to capture the values so I can plot it.

Sadly, that's a zillion miles beyond my computational skills! :-)

The soft and hardware along the lines of Triumph, would be what I'm thinking of, I think Tango has that equipment, might be the right direction to look in :thumb:

I'll take some snaps of it when it turns up.

I "just" want the logging stuff for initial tuning so I can go back after a run and check I'm not running lean or at risk of exploding the motor!

The OBD2 connector that I have is really just a diagnostic tool, but with the ability to be able to edit ECU maps or upload alternative maps. There is a bluetooth version available, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't store any data, just displays it.
Anyway, as it's a Kwak you've got the OBD2 interface is not going to be a lot of good to you. What about a Power Commander......has that got a data logging facility?

I've already bought a fully programmable system - that's what's turning up!

I want to record the data as it'll be easier looking back at the data than balancing a lappy on the tank. :-D

it has the comms protocol, so with a bit of coding it should be possible to log data to file/Excel.

Ignitech is what I've got - the one you've linked is one of the injection models, I only have the ignition unit (TCIP4 - full version).

How do you do coding?

Last page of this manual mentions the Monitor and a data file path.. maybe that will contain the info you want?

Good spot!

I think I'll have to plug it in and see what's what.
