AiM Sports MXL Pro 2005 Digital Dash Race Display


AiM Sports MXL Pro 2005 Digital Dash Race Display

The MXL race data acquisition systems are perfect for race cars, performance street cars, street and race motorcycles. Whethere you need a digital gauge, display, or racing data system, there is an MXL model for you!

All MXL systems are compatible with many third party engine control/management units (ECU). This compatiblity reduces the need for external sensors, since the ECU signal can provide potentially hundreds of data channels. In addition, the ECU often connects through one simple wiring harness.

The MXL Pro is a powerful racing data acquisition system featuring a tachometer, RPM input, 12 analog inputs, 4 speed inputs, CAN/serial ECU connector, CAN protocol for external expansion, gear position indicator (sampled or calculated), internal lateral G sensor, and lap timer.

With standard features including a wide, fully configurable display, six configurable alarm LED’s, backlight, and USB connector, the MXL is a stylish, powerful unit that re-defines the state of the art in data acquisition for performance vehicles.

Street Smarts

The MXL Pro can be interfaced (via CAN or RS-232 serial) with a variety of vehicle ECU's (engine control units) including MoTec, Pectel, DTA, MBE, EFI, Seat, Autronic, Bosch, Racetech and Carmo. Or use the Autosport connector and deploy a powerful array of sensors on your vehicle, including pressure, temperature, throttle, steering, suspension, speed, Lambda sond, and more. The additional CAN protocol allows the MXL Pro to interface with external expansion modules.

The lateral G sensor lets you create a map of the track when you download the data to your PC. This allows you to match up RPMs, gear positions and more to exact track positions to fine tune your driving. By adding brake position sensors, for example, you can monitor driving behavior and actually see where on the track the driver is braking, and much braking is applied. This is invaluable for driver training.

Science over Superstition

The MXL Pro is a self-contained, true data logger that acquires data from all connected sources 1 - 500 times per second (depending on sensor and input type). Using our powerful Race Studio 2 software you can download your data to your PC via USB and get a professional analysis of your performance data. You can also replay the data on the MXL without a PC or software. The MXL Pro features 16 MB of non-volatile memory, retaining data even when the power is off, and has an Auto-Power off feature to preserve the battery life.

Connect sensors to the MXL Pro and it displays, samples, and stores the data from those sensors. For example, you can connect a temperature sensor to the cylinder head of your engine and get continuous reads on your engine temperature. See the temperature values on the display as you drive, and download the recorded data to your PC and review the numbers on a graph later on. AiM Sports uses sophisticated data acquisition technologies in the MXL to make this process fast, accurate, reliable and cost-effective.

Unlock the Power

Connect the MXL Pro to your vehicle’s ECU and unleash the MXL’s true power: logging and displaying dozens of channels straight from the vehicle’s nerve center, including specialized sensors built into the vehicle. This is often the quickest and easiest setup, needing only 1 cable connection to the ECU instead of multiple connections to analog sensors, yet it yields the most dramatic results. In addition - you can leverage your aftermarket ECU investment.

Get the most from practice and training sessions by objectively comparing data from runs using different vehicle setups, drivers, and driving strategies to find the winning combinations.

The MXL Pro uses state of the art algorithms to sample, calculate and display RPM, lap time, gear position, speed, temperatures and more. A GPS module will create detailed 3D track maps.
