The VBOX Micro Input Module (RLVBMICIN01) is a small, highly cost effective module ideal for use in applications that only require a minimum of additional signals to be recorded, with one RPM (digital) input and four analogue inputs.
A 5v output is available to power sensors that are not already powered by the vehicle loom, and the analogue sensor range is from 0v to 14v.
It outputs data in either CAN or RS232 format depending on which device it is being used with.
The Micro Input Module is compatible with every VBOX data logger except VBOX Sport. Each Micro Input Module comes with a cable suitable for use with specific products.
Analogue Inputs (AN1 – AN4)
4 analogue inputs are included, which are capable of measuring 0 – 14.5V DC.
Digital Input (RPM)
The RPM input connects to the low tension side of an ignition coil, enabling users to detect the RPM frequency. The input can process voltage spikes in excess of +/- 200V, and a maximum of 666Hz i/p frequency. The RPM input is a digital frequency input and is also capable of measuring digital signals such as 5V TTL and 0 – 12v digital pulse signals.
CAN Output (VBOX / Video VBOX)
The analogue and digital signals are outputted via CAN when the Micro Input Module is connected to a VBOX. Note that CAN is output only – cannot take an input from Vehicle CAN.
RS232 Output (VBOX Mini / Performance Meters)
VBOX Mini, DriftBox, and PerformanceBox utilise the RS232 output.
