- Enable IMU integration and set antenna offsets, angle offsets and gyro offsets.
- Enable IMU roof mount and set data translation point (IMU04 with RLCAB119 only).
- Control logging start/stop.
- Delete unwanted files from the compact flash card.
- Create VBOX data files with descriptive filenames in a logical directory structure.
- Provide full control of VBOX settings, log rate, log mode, DGPS mode etc.
- Velocity graph mode.
- Correctly format CF cards using VBOXIII/VBOX 3i.
The VBOX Manager uses a CAN Bus link to communicate with the VBOX. The connection should be made via the supplied RLCAB05-C cable. This is normally connected between either of the two LEMO sockets on the VBOX Manager and the CAN connector on the VBOX. The VBOX connector marked CAN is the default bus for Racelogic module communication. However, if the VBOX Manager display constantly shows “NO CAN” then check the VBOX CAN setup in case the VBOX has been configured to use the “RS232” connector for Racelogic module communication.
The VBOX Manager uses a rotary push-button knob to control VBOX functions and to navigate menu options. By rotating the knob when a menu is displayed, the user can select various menu items. To select a menu item, the user can press the knob in the centre.
The example above shows that the VBOX is currently logging data to the compact flash card. While the VBOX is logging, the arrows will rotate. The highlighted text shows the action that will be performed when the knob is pressed. Therefore if the control knob is pressed in the example above, the VBOX will stop logging and show the following screen:
Indicates that logging is currently paused.
Filename of current log file.
The operating voltage of the VBOX Manager must be between 6 V and 28 V DC.
It is important therefore to ensure that the VBOX supply voltage is no higher than 28 V DC when using the VBOX Manager.
