Aim MXL2 Motorcycle Racing Dash Data Logger

Availability: 48 in stock

Trust Badge

The Aim MXL2 Motorcycle Racing Dash Data logger provides all the data needed by professional race drivers to monitor the performance of the bike and their riding configuration and usage smooth and easy either for any level of driver.performance.

The MXL2 Dash Data logger has been designed with the aim to make configuration and usage smooth and easy either for amateurs and for people with sophisticated technical background.

Aim Motorcycle

 Aim MXL2 acquires and displays data from your engine ECU, the internal accelerometer and gyro, as well as from the GPS module included in the kit, analog / digital inputs and predefined math channels. Performance and data acquired can also be incremented adding up to eight expansion modules.

Analog Digital Inputs

Analog Digital Inputs

MXL2 Motorcycle dash data logger 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 thermocouples

and many others, all your custom sensors included.

MXL2 has eight analog inputs

MXL2 also features six digital inputs:

  • Four speed signalsMXL2 Motorcycle dash data logger can receive the speed signal from the ECU, from the GPS and from the four wheel sensors.
  • RPM – MXL2 can 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.

MXL2 also features six digital inputs

MXL2 ECU Connections

The MXL2 Motorcycle dash data logger acquires data from the ECU of your vehicle. The list of available ECU drivers, constantly updated and upgraded, is published here: it includes approximately 700 different ECUs, either Stock and Racing. They are sorted by manufacturer/vehicle model: for each ECU you find the proprietary communication protocols, including the standard OBDII ones. From a hardware point of view, MXL2 manages the following data lines:

  • CAN
  • RS232
  • K-Line

MXL2 GPS Module

The GPS 05 Module (included in the kit) connected via CAN to the MXL2 Motorcycle dash data logger makes lap time calculation and track position analysis very easy. Each MXL2 memory stores more than 200 world tracks start/finish line coordinates: as soon as MXL2 is switched on, the GPS 05 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 MXL2 via PC before going to the track, using the Race Studio 3 – Track Manager software.

CAN Output 

The CAN Output on the MXL2 Motorcycle dash data logger can send messages directly to your existing CAN network in order to improve the range of vehicle control capabilities.


MXL2 Second CAN

An innovative MXL2 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.

MXL2 Internal Accelerometer and Gyro

The internal three-axial accelerometer and the gyroscope provide the MXL2 Motorcycle dash data logger, 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.

MXL2 Math channels

With MXL2 you immediately get Math Channels values. The dash data logger can be configured to display those values (i.e. brake bias, calculated gear) in real time.

Freely Configurable Pages

You can define up to eight different custom pages, choosing among a wide library of page styles, defining which data to be shown. Their end of scale and measure units. Here you see examples of pages with 1, 2, 3 or 4 different data and the track map.

Freely Configurable Pages

Sharp Liquid Crystal

The MXL2 Motorcycle dash data logger features a high contrast traditional LCD, with a black to white ratio nearly double its predecessor, fused with a graphical LCD offering great flexibility in information display and alerts. The MXL2 now offers a dual coloured back-light of high contrast white and red which can also be changed conditionally. An ambient light sensor keeps the back-light at optimum brightness levels.

Flexible Alarms Six different alarm LED’s.

You choose the conditions, the colours and the flashing frequency. You can also configure them in order to turn them on/off depending on analog or digital inputs, ECU values, expansion values, GPS information or math channels. You can also associate an alarm LED a message and a digital output with each event.

Flexible Alarms

Two Digital Outputs

MXL2 Motorcycle features two digital outputs. Each of them can give an output of 1 amp at 12 volts: 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.
