Innovate Motorsports Announces MTS-Modular Tuning System
Complete tuning system brings professional diagnostics to the enthusiast market.
SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA, October 14, 2004 - Innovate Motorsports today announced the release of the Modular Tuning System (MTS). Anchored by Innovate's popular LM-1 Digital Air/Fuel Ratio Meter, the MTS is an expandable and configurable system for tuning any engine. Equally useful for carbureted and fuel-injected applications, the MTS combines sensors, sensor controllers, data acquisitions, analysis software, and dash-mountable gauges.
The MTS can capture and record a minimum of 6 channels of data, in multiple sessions, up to 44 minutes of total time, and is expandable up to 32 channels of data up to 200 hours.
The MTS is available in three starter kits: Basic, RPM, and AuxBox. The Basic Kit (MSRP $349) includes the LM-1 Digital Air/Fuel Ratio Meter, the LogWorks display and analysis software, and all of the required accessories for installation and connection. The RPM Kit (MSRP $429) is comprised of the Basic Kit plus the LMA-2 RPM converter cable. The LMA-2 contains the circuitry required to capture any tach signal and convert it into a log-able data channel. The LMA-2 also features wire terminals for attaching up to 4 additional 0-5V external sensors.
The AuxBox Kit (MSRP $589) is comprised of the Basic Kit plus the LMA-3 multi-sensor auxiliary input device. The LMA-3, also known as the AuxBox, attaches to the auxiliary input of the LM-1 and allows a user to log and analyze 5 critical engine metrics in addition to the air/fuel ratio (AFR) native on the LM-1. The 5 internal sensors are intended for capturing Manifold Air Pressure (MAP or Boost), Cylinder Head Temperature (CHT) or Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT), RPM conversion (from a tach signal or inductive clamp), Acceleration, and Injector Duty Cycle (or Dwell). The internal MAP sensor is a 3-bar absolute pressure sensor, providing accurate data up to 44.1 PSIA. The temperature measurement circuit features a K-type thermocouple.
The MTS is compatible with Innovate's XD-1 programmable digital display, the LC-1 standalone wideband controller, and other forthcoming products. All components can be added in multiples, combining for a maximum of 32 channels of data acquisition.
The LM-1 is the world's only fully-digital air/fuel ratio meter. In a major advance for engine tuners, the LM-1 enables precise measurement of exhaust air/fuel ratio (AFR) at an affordable price. The meter's digital signal processing technology provides data on exactly how rich or lean an engine is running at any load. The LM-1's self-calibrating circuitry also compensates for changes in temperature, altitude, and sensor condition.
