12v alarm output from Dash 2

Postby GMS Racing » Tue Aug 28, 2007 7:37 pm

When really concentrating in a race I sometimes do not see warning lights coming on until several seconds later, what about providing a 12v (or 5v) alarm output from the Dash 2 that could be used to activate a high pitched buzzer?

Hi Gary,
It's a good idea, I'll add it to my list for the DASH2.

Any news on this? I've just purchased a Dash2 to go with my ECU and DL1. I would really like to be able to use of the analogue inputs or something similar to output a signal to trigger a buzzer and/or a huge red warning light on my dash plumbed in by the previous owner...

I've not had an issue with the shift light based warning lights. Quite visible.

However, it would be nice to use the Dash2 to turn say a radiator fan on and off.

this would be a great feature for an expansion module - an I/O device so that we can get it to drive buzzers or relays in addition to logging and displaying :)

To the OP's original suggestion, I use aftermarket (mostly Longacre) warning lights. Cheep and on an independent power supply for redundancy. Low Oil P and Low Water P. I'm thinking about adding a high water temp as well but haven't gotten that far yet.

What is so difficult about providing an output? Even if it is 5V or even if is is a normally open contact - anything that I can use to operate whatever I want. In fact, a set of NC and NO contacts would be great.

However, since this has been on the "list" since 2006, I am not holding my breath.

We are working on it and it will be available fairly soon. With regards features the more people ask for something the sooner it happens, in this case it has only come up relatively infrequently and as a result has taken some time to add on!

Kind regards,

Thanks.

In retrospect it might be better to have a NC and NO contact that can then be used to activate whatever circuit the user wants. it would be a bonus if the software could have some logic built in, e.g. activate NO contact only if Intake temp > 60 deg C AND RPM > 3000 (obviously both values may be chosen by the user). This could then be used to activate an intercooler spray. I can think of lots of uses for this feature, as I'm sure others can.

We are ahead of you on this one and you can control the output with a formula, just like the user equations in the analysis software :D

Kind regards,
