The Aim EVO 5 Car Racing Data Logger is the evolution of the traditional data logger that over the years has become a standard defacto data acquisition system in a huge amount of championships.

A wide range of sources for your data

EVO5 samples all the information you need: data coming from your vehicle ECU via CAN, RS232 or K-line, from the internal accelerometers and gyro, from the GPS08 Module included in the kit.  And from analog/digital inputs, external expansions as well as predefined math channels. Sensors can be connected to 8 configurable analog channels, to the RPM input and to 4 wheel speed inputs.

Two digital outputs

EVO5 features two digital outputs. The two digital outputs (Dout) are LOW SIDE type (switch to ground): they can be configured in order to be turned on/off depending on the value of the analog or digital inputs. They permit to automatically run external systems,  i.e. to switch on/off additional lights, to activate/ de-activate a cooling fan or circulation pumps,  etc. when a certain event happens.

CAN output

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

Allows you to record all possible data you may ever need. The card is protected by a waterproof door equipped with a sensor closing all files when you open it, to prevent any data loss possibility. No way to have a faster data downloading: you remove the SD and it is done.

The Internal SD Card

Wi-Fi connection

Configure the system and download your data over a secure 802.11 WiFi connection, even if your car is 100 meters far from you.

 

EVO5 is the evolution of the traditional datalogger that, all over the years, has become a standard de facto acquisition system in a huge amount of championships. With its compact aluminum 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 for main applications (power, CAN, Aim CAN network, etc.) and a 22 pins connector for additional functions like CAN2, digital outputs.

EVO5 Sensors

Expand your EVO5 as much as you need

Add expansion modules via our built-in CAN bus:
Channel Expansion


It permits to add 4 0-5Volt analog channels for pressure, temperature sensors and potentiometers. Two of these channels can be configured to receive digital inputs like wheel speed.

LCU-One CAN

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.

Memory Module

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.

Connection Examples

Data Sources

ECU Connections

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:

  • CAN
  • RS232
  • K-Line

Analog Digital Inputs

EVO 5 has eight analog inputs, recorded up to 1000 times per second each. You can connect and monitor all kinds of sensors, like:

  • Ratiometric potentiometers
  • Pressure sensors
  • Thermo-resistances
  • 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.

GPS Module

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.

Second CAN

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.

Math Channels

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.

 

Key Features

  • Integrates with over 500 brands and models of ECU
  • Modular and expandable: 8 analog inputs, 2 digital inputs, 1 RPM input, 2 digital outputs
  • Supports video integration with AiM SmartyCam HD
  • Supports GPS05 module
  • Internal triaxial G and gyro sensors
  • Removable SD card data recording

    Technical & Installation

    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.
