Aim EVO 5 Car Racing Data Logger with two multi-channel Motorsport connectors. Connects to vehicle ECU via CAN, RS232 or K-line also includes GPS Module.
EVO 5 comes with Harness, GPS08 Module and software.
A wide range of sources for your data
The incoming data from your ECU via CAN, RS232 or K-Line, the internal accelerometer and gyro, and the included GPS modules are all recorded by the EVO 5. The unit can also accept digital or analogue inputs. Sensors can be connected to 8 configurable analogue channels, to the RPM input and to 4 wheel speed inputs.
Two digital outputs
EVO5 features two digital outputs. The built-in digital outputs can be configured to automatically run external systems when an event happens. A good example would be the activation/deactivation of a cooling fan when a certain temperature is met.
With the CAN Output you can send messages directly to an existing CAN network in order to improve the range of vehicle control possibilities.
The Internal SD Card
This will allow the user to record all the data. Its waterproofed door is equipped with a sensor that shuts down any open data files when the door is opened.
The data can now be downloaded over the secure 802.11 Wi-Fi connection the EVO 5 offers. Once downloaded, the data can be viewed and modified with the RaceStudio 3 platform.
EVO5 is the evolution of the traditional data logger that over the years has become a standard defacto acquisition system in a huge amount of championships. With its compact aluminium body, EVO5 can be easily placed in any vehicle. Its configuration with the new Race Studio 3 software is simple and immediate.
Two multi-channel Motorsport connectors
Simple and straightforward, one top quality harness for ALL your connections.
A 37-pin connector is available for your main applications such as power, CAN, etc., and a second, 22-pin connector is available for functions like CAN2 and digital outputs.
Endless expansion possibilities
Add expansion modules via our built-in CAN bus:
It permits to add 4 0-5 Volt analogue channels for pressure, temperature sensors and potentiometers. Two of these channels can be configured to receive digital inputs like wheel speed.
Wide band Lambda controller LCU-One, with Bosch LSU 4.9 probe, providing all Air/Fuel data and lambda value, allows to perfectly tune the carburetion.
SmartyCam HD Cameras
The on-board cameras that overlays on videos the data sampled by your logger.
The Memory Module is a small SD Card holder that can be connected via CAN bus to your AiM logger in order to record the data during your tests.
In order to make sense of all the incoming data, the EVO 5 can be connected to the GS-Dash or the display form the Formula Steering Wheel 3.
Download your data to a PC for a professional data analysisData recorded by EVO5 can be downloaded to PC and analyzed with the professional Race Studio Analysis software: graphs, histograms and tables will help you evaluate your performance, providing an objective support to avoid mistakes and improve your driving technique.
Aim data loggers acquire data from the ECU of your vehicle.The list of available ECU drivers is constantly updated and upgraded and is published in our support site which include over 1000 different ECU’s, either Stock and Racing. They are sorted by manufacturer/vehicle model and for each ECU, you will find the proprietary communication protocols, including the standard OBDII ones. From a hardware point of view, EVO 5 manages the following data lines:
Analog Digital Inputs
EVO 5 has eight analogue inputs, recorded up to 1000 times per second each. You can connect and monitor all kinds of sensors, like:
- Ratiometric potentiometers
- Pressure sensors
- K-type thermocouple and many others, all your custom sensors included.
EVO 5 also features six digital inputs
- Four speed signals – EVO 5 can receive the speed signal from the ECU, from the GPS and from the four wheel sensors.
- RPM – MXS scan receive the RPM signal from the ECU or from a digital input connected to a square wave signal (8 to 50 V) or to a low voltage (from 150 to 400 V) of the coil.
- Lap signal – Lap and split times are sampled by the GPS (included in the kit) or via optical receiver/transmitter.
The GPS08 Module (included in the kit) connected via CAN to the EVO 5 makes lap time calculation and track position analysis very easy. Each Aim EVO 5 memory stores more than 200 world tracks start/finish line coordinates. As soon as Aim EVO 5 is switched on, the GPS08 Module will locate its position, identify track-line coordinates and start immediately sampling lap and split time. If the track is not included in the database, it is always possible to add the start/finish line coordinates to the Aim EVO 5 via PC before going to the track, using the Race Studio 3 – Track Manager software.
An innovative EVO 5 feature is its CAN2 line, managing data coming from your additional modules (i.e. ABS, traction control, infrared temperature sensors and more). This feature meets the requirements of a growing number of racers, as the use of additional modules is becoming quite common in a number of series.
Internal Accelerometer and Gyro
The internal three-axial accelerometer and the gyroscope provide the EVO 5 a very powerful array of information. These force and motion sensors enable you to quantify the dynamic characteristics of your vehicle. Measuring acceleration forces and gyro rates can assist in determining how to improve your vehicle performances.
With EVO 5 you immediately get Math Channels values. The dash logger can be configured to display those values (i.e. brake bias, calculated gear) in real time.
- Integrates with over 500 brands and models of ECU
- Modular and expandable: 8 analogue inputs, 2 digital inputs, 1 RPM input, 2 digital outputs
- Supports video integration with AiM SmartyCam HD
- Supports GPS05 module
- Internal tri-axial G and gyro sensors
- Removable SD card data recording
For a correct EVO5 installation it is important to follow some simple rules.
Carry out CAN, serial or K-line connection only AFTER performing the logger configuration with Race Studio 3. For a correct working of the integrated three-axial accelerometer and gyroscope, EVO5 is to be placed in a central position of the car (ideally in the vehicle's centre of gravity).
GPS module is not to be positioned under metal or carbon fibre objects, which would greatly reduce the satellite signal quality. Also avoid the positioning close to other antennas, digital cameras or TFT displays. Finally, avoid installing the product with tense cables.
