SATS

  • Flashing red indicates no satellites in view
  • Flashing green sequence indicates the number of GPS satellites currently being tracked. Each flash indicates a satellite with a short pause between each sequence.
  • Flashing orange sequence indicates the number of GLONASS Satellites currently being tracked. Each flash indicates a satellite with a short pause between each sequence.

Note for VB3i V1 units

When the filter is enabled and the IMU is connected, the satellite LED will remain off to act as an indicator for the IMU integration status. Only when the filter is initialised and movement is detected will the SAT LED return to its normal operation.

The user will need to leave 1 minute after powering the VBOX on with the IMU connected before starting to move. This occurs on every power up of the VBOX unit.

DIFF/DGPS

  • Off indicates that no DGPS mode is set or is in MB-Base mode.
  • Flashing orange indicates DGPS is set but not locked (either 2 cm RTK, 40 cm local DGPS, MB-Rover or NTRIP).
  • Solid orange indicates a 'Float' RTK status (either 2 cm RTK, MB-Rover or NTRIP) or ‘Fixed’ DGPS lock (40 cm local DGPS or SBAS).
  • Solid green indicates a ‘Fixed’ RTK lock (either 2 cm RTK, MB-Rover or NTRIP).

DUAL (VB3i SL units only)

  • Solid orange indicates that dual antenna mode is enabled.
  • Solid green indicates dual antenna lock is fixed.

PWR

  • Solid green indicates that a suitable power source is connected, unit is fully booted and ready to use.
  • Solid red indicates that the VBOX is not ready to operate either because it is still booting up, settings are being written to the unit or because there is an error condition.

D IN

  • Solid green indicates that the brake trigger input has been activated/triggered.

CAN

  • Flashing green indicates that expected incoming CAN data has been decoded properly and is being logged.
  • There is no illumination to indicate that there is incoming Serial traffic through this socket.

SER

  • Flashing yellow indicates that there is incoming Serial traffic through this socket.
  • Flashing green indicates that expected incoming CAN data has been decoded properly and is being logged.

BLUETOOTH

  • V1 Bluetooth module - Flashing blue indicates Bluetooth is waiting for a connection.
    V2 Bluetooth module – Flashing blue indicates Bluetooth is initialising coms with a Bluetooth device.
  • Solid blue indicates the VBOX3i has a Bluetooth connection with another Bluetooth device.

CF

  • Flashes blue when data is being written to the card.

LOG

  • Solid green when the VBOX is capturing data to the CF card.
  • Flashes red indicating current logging rate after ‘FUNC’ button press, fast for 100 Hz, slow for 20 Hz.

IMU (V2/V3/V4/V5 only)

  • Solid orange indicates that IMU integration is enabled but no IMU is connected, or, the detected IMU is invalid. When using an IMU04, ensure that it is: connected using an RLCAB119 to the 25-way D connector, is set to Racelogic CAN mode, and is running the latest release firmware.
  • Flashing orange shows IMU is connected and integration initialisation is running. This will not complete until the VB3i has had a satellite lock whilst stationary for 30 seconds.
  • Flashing green indicates Initialisation complete – movement not yet detected.
  • Solid green indicates movement detected – IMU integration working OK.

VB3i V1

When IMU Integration is enabled and the IMU is connected, the satellite LED will remain off to act as an indicator for the IMU integration status. Only when the filter is initialised and movement is detected will the SAT LED return to its normal operation.

The user will need to leave 1 minute after powering the VBOX on with the IMU connected before starting to move. This occurs on every power up of the VBOX unit.
