The Hondata K–Series ECU has software selectable 9600 bps or 115200 bps output baud rates. To be compatible with the Race Technology ECU decoder, the ECU must be set to output data at 9600 baud. There are two models of this ECU in common usage, the PRA and PRB. This unit will only work with the PRB ECU.

There is more information about connecting to the hondata ECU here:

In particular the data output from the ECU is on Pin 24 on the E connector, this is labelled as SEFMJ

IMPORTANT: The Hondata ECU does not use standard serial data voltage levels, so the hardware of the Race technology ECU adapter must be modified to suit this adapter. A Hondata ECU adapter cannot be used with any other ECU, and visa-versa.

On the Race Technology ECU adaptor there is a 9-way d-type connector labelled ECU. You need to connect PIN2 to PIN E24 of the ECU.

If you are powering the ECU from a different power source as the ECU adaptor then you will also need to connect pin 5 from the ECU adaptor to the ECUs power supply ground.

On the Race Technology ECU adaptor there is a 9-way d-type connector labelled ECU. You need to connect :

  • PIN2 of the D type to PIN E24 of the ECU (this is the data pin from the ECU->RT)
  • PIN5 of the D type to the ECUs power supply ground
  • PIN3 of the D type can remain unconnected (this is the data pin from RT->ECU but in this application there is no reuirement for this)

Also note that for this ECU you need to configure the DASh/DL1/PC to expect 0.25 pulses per revolution to get the correct RPM displayed.

Also note that this ECU ONLY outputs data when the engine is running, when the engine is not running there is no data available

Note - Not all channels listed in the table(s) above may be available from your ECU. This can be dependent on the vehicle model & year of manufacture.
