USB xDS Interface

Price: consult

This xDS Interface provides a quick way to record the motorcycle's engine RPM, and engine coolant temperature, this is specially useful with on-spark coils, in which the inductive clamp maybe too big to fit in, and difficult to access.

xDS interface + USB adapter

SportDyno communicates directly with the xDS interface. This makes possible to use xDS link with SP1 or SP5

The Following Screenshots have been taken from SportDyno Version 4.0

xDS Configuration Window

In this window the computer shows the available channels, and the user can select those channels that want to acquire. Suzuki and Honda motorcyles send all channels every time, but with Kawasaki motorcycles each new channel has to be requested and make the communictions slower. In the example only Engine RPM and speed are selected

After selecting which channels are going to be used in the system, these channels can be used either on the Ratio Window or during the recording of the test:
