When a MICIN01 is connected to a VBOX Mini, PerformanceBox or DriftBox, they will automatically log all of the input channels.
Each of the input channels has configuration attributes that can be configured through the VBOX Mini, PB or DB. Changing the Name, Units and Scale for a channel is not required but makes the logged data much easier to understand. See below for descriptions
Important: MICIN01 communication requires an RS232 chip to be fitted within the PB/DB unit.
This is standard for units built after September 2009.
For units older than this, or to check a unit’s age, please contact Racelogic for further information.
