How Do I - Connect A Start / Stop Logging Switch
With Indicator To The DL1 CLUB?
The start / stop logging switch provides the driver with the option to start logging, without having the press the start / stop logging button on the DL1 CLUB itself. This can come in handy when the data logger is installed a vehicle but out-of-reach for the driver, such as in the passenger side footwell. Installing the DL1 here is ideal for levelling the unit but makes it impossible to press the start / stop logging button on the unit, if the driver is fully harnessed into the car. The start / stop logging switch solves this problem & comes with a built in light that illuminates when the switch is active.
