    BASE CAN ID PROGRAMMING – RECEIVER:

    To modify the wireless receiver’s base CAN ID, sensor assignment mode, or bit rate, send the following CAN message at 1Hz for at least 10 seconds and then reset the receiver by disconnecting power for 5 seconds. For more details and options, refer to the Appendix.

    SYSTEM LAYOUT

    Place receiver near centre of car, in cockpit, with antenna perpendicular to any metal or carbon-fibre surface. Most applications will only require one receiver, but a chassis with difficult RF penetration may require two receivers (front and rear).

    SYSTEM LAYOUT

    TYRE CORNER ASSIGNMENT – TTPMS SENSOR:

    By default, each TTPMS sensor is assigned to a specific corner/tire with a unique Node ID:

    • LF Node ID’s: 001 to 030
    • RF Node ID’s: 031 to 060
    • LR Node ID’s: 061 to 090
    • RR Node ID’s: 091 to 120

    The corner assignment for each Node ID is adjustable; refer to the Appendix for details.

    - Each team/set will be assigned a receiver with a unique Network ID and AES-128 encryption, therefore protecting data between teams and cars.

    - The receiver will acquire data from all active TTPMS sensors in the pits but will only receive data from the fitted active tyres when away from the pits.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

    • Battery life depends on a multitude of operating conditions but will typically exceed 1 million transmissions (347 track hours) or up to approximately 3 years
    o The TTPMS sensor is fitted with a serviceable battery.
    • The maximum recommended sensor temperature is 120˚C for utmost reliability and battery life, but transient temperature excursions up to 150˚C are survivable.
    • To avoid dropped packets the average Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) should be no less than -90dBm.
    o Two receivers may be used when signal strength is too weak with one receiver.
    • Do not wash the TTPMS sensors – keep dry.
    • Do not repeatedly remove and reinstall the sensor & valve assembly.

      APPENDIX A.1 – BASIC RECEIVER PROGRAMMING:

      To modify the wireless receiver’s base CAN ID, sensor assignment mode, or bit rate, send the following CAN message at 1Hz for at least 10 seconds and then reset the receiver by disconnecting power for 5 seconds.

      CAN messages should only be sent to the receiver during the configuration sequence. DO NOT continuously send CAN messages to the receiver.

      A.2 – CUSTOM CORNER ASSIGNMENT OF TTPMS SENSOR NODE ID’s:
      • Each sensor is assigned a unique Node ID; the receiver may be programmed to assign any Node ID to any of the four wheels (LF, RF, LR, or RR).
      • “Sensor Assignment” (Byte 4 in CAN message above) must be set to “Custom” (i.e., Byte 4 = 2) in order to activate custom corner assignments.
