Innovate Motorsports Releases DL-32 Data Logger
Newest component of the MTS TM (Modular Tuning System) provides up to 32-channels of data logging, with multiple built-in sensors.
Irvine, California, February 21, 2006- Innovate Motorsports today announced the release of the DL-32 Data Acquisition Device. The DL-32 is a complete system for advanced engine tuning. The system is anchored by Innovate Motorsports’ award-winning digital wideband Air/Fuel Ratio technology, but also includes flexible sensors for RPM, MAP, Temperature, Duty Cycle, and analog inputs. The basic DL-32 unit features the following:
32-channels of data recording capability, 12 samples per second
- 17 minutes of recording per MB of SD Card capacity
- 1-bar to 3-bar pressure sensor (MAP, Vacuum, Boost, etc.)
- Thermocouple amplifier (EGT, CHT, etc.)
- Duty cycle and Frequency sensing
- 2-axis accelerometer (Acceleration Gs, Braking Gs, and Cornering Gs)
- RPM measurement
- 5V power supply for external sensor
The DL-32 is a compliant MTS component, so users can chain together additional MTS components, such as Innovate’s popular LC-1 wideband oxygen-sensor controller and air/fuel ratio meter. For example, a common configuration for advanced tuning would include multiple LC-1’s for individual cylinder tuning, a DL-32, and any other required MTS components.
For RPM, the DL-32 includes options for direct tach input, inductive clamp, GMR sensor, or optical sensors. For Manifold Absolute Pressure, the DL-32 features a configurable 1-bar, or 3-bar pressure sensor for both normally-aspirated and forced-induction applications. Multiple temperature, frequency and duty-cycle channels round out the input capabilities of the DL-32.
The DL-32 ships with LogWorks 2, Innovate’s powerful analysis software. This is the same software used by top engine builders, tuners, and developers, and features Dyno-formatted charts, 3D charting, and a flexible math engine for creating custom tuning formulas.
A key feature of LogWorks 2.0 is a full math engine for generating calculated traces. For example, LogWorks can calculate and graph horsepower and torque, allowing direct mapping and comparison of HP vs. RPM vs. AFR. This enables users to gather performance data with a number of different fuel maps (or jetting changes, etc.), the use LogWorks to directly determine peak volumetric efficiency at any RPM or load. In other works, LogWorks 2.0 can tell you not only what your AFRs are, but also what they should be.
“The goal with the DL-32 is to set a new standard for data acquisition” says Klaus Allmendinger, Innovate Motorsports’ VP of Engineering. “Archored by our wideband technology, and augmented by the internal sensors and LogWorks, we can deliver big team power at a fraction of the traditional cost.”
“We’ve completed the connection from the dyno to the street, to the track and back,” states Patrick Thompson, Innovate’s President, “Users can compare DL-32 track data to ST-12 dyno data on the same software platform, or email log files to their engine builder or tuner for setup advice.”
The DL-32 retails for $499 (MSRP). The forums at www.tuneyourengine.com feature insider tips and tricks for the novice and ultimate enthusiast alike.
