An alternative to the L180 data logger are the Motec dashlogger, which combine full size data logger with a high-resolution dashboard display.



CAN Bus Sensor Expander     E816

The Motec expander module E816 provides 16 analog inputs and four PWM outputs to extend the capabilities of other data logger and engine control units. The data exchange is done by CAN bus. With open CAN bus protocols, the E816 also can be used as an analog-to-CAN resp. DAQ module for ECUs, displays and data logger of other manufacturers than Motec.

  • 16 analog voltage inputs
  • 4 digital inputs for puls and speed measurement
  • 2 active-on-low switch inputs
  • sample rate 200Hz per channel
  • 8 PWM outputs, 8bit / 5kHz, up to 8A overall current capacity
  • CAN bus interface, compatible to all Motec ECUs, data logger etc.
  • manufacturer: Motec

For an even higher count of input channels, sample rates up to 5kHz and realtime synchronizing capabilities we suggest the Motec SVIM module.



CAN Bus Sensor Expander     E888

The DAQ module E888 is similar to the Motec expander E816, but eight analog voltage inputs are replaced by compensated thermocouple inputs. So, it is first choice e.g. for multi channel exhaust gas temperature measurement. As the E816 the measured data are transmitted by CAN bus. Due to the open CAN protocol, the sensor expander E888 also can be used as an universal data acquirement system with non-Motec control units.

  • 8 analog voltage inputs
  • 8 inputs for type K thermocouples
  • 4 digital inputs for puls and speed measurement
  • 2 active-on-low switch inputs
  • 8 PWM outputs, 8bit / 5kHz, up to 8A overall current capacity
  • CAN bus interface, compatible to all Motec ECUs, data logger etc.
  • manufacturer: Motec

Suitable temperature sensors: KTC thermocouples.



CAN Bus Sensor Box / DAQ Module     SVIM

Motec SVIM boxes (Synchronous Versatile Input Module) are CAN based data acquirement units to be connected to a CAN data logger / data memory unit without own analog inputs or to be used as an channel expander to extend the analog inputs of other DAQs or data logger. The SVIMs capture all inputs synchronously and by that do provide an outstanding realtime behavior even with fast changing signals.

  • 10 analog voltage inputs 0..5V
  • 8 differential inputs with programmable sensitivity
  • 6 analog inputs 0..5V with high sample rate (5kHz)
  • 2 digital inputs with programmable trigger threshold
  • resolution 15bit
  • supply voltage 12V (7..30V)
  • manufacturer: Motec
