ECUType / Adaptronic

Adaptronic

Adaptronic from firmware version 12 have now made the option available to output Race Technology format data. This means you can connect the ECU to any Race Technology DASH or datalogger without the need of an interface to decode the data to Race Technology format. Adaptronic also have online page offering a full explanation.


ECU Connections:

  1. e420c
  2. first build e1280s
  3. second build e1280s
  4. third build e1280s
  5. Select ECU (e420d, 440 or plug-in)

(1) and (2) have a D9 female connector, so this plug straight into the Race Technology serial adaptor - no adaptors / wiring necessary. You use the port that you would normally use to connect to the laptop.

(3) has a 4 -pin Mini-DIN - (the port is labelled "Vidi" on the ECU). Note that you can't use this port and the USB connection at the same time.


(4) and (5) have a stereo 2.5mm connector (mini headphone). Use the "serial out" port (not the "serial in" port). You can buy a premade cable from Innovate Motorsports in the US - the part number is 3746 (Program Cable: LC-1, XD-1, Aux Box to PC) - which is a 2.5mm cable to D9 female cable. This plugs into the Race Technology DASH or datalogger serial port connector directly if the ECU is running firmware version 12 or later. If you are using an older version of firmware the an interface is needed.

  • Note that you can't use this port and the USB connection at the same time.


ECU configuration:

e420c and Select ECUs (e420d, 440, and the plug-ins) - none required.

For the e1280s, you must be using firmware version 3.039 or later. Then go into "dedicated functions" -> "General" and configure the serial output variables below.


Channel Listings (for systems using an ECU Interface):

The Adaptronic ECU should be set to output data at 57.6 kbaud.
