  1. Thanks for the quick reply , that clarifies it . I used the Ics file that was included in the G4+ folder for the Generic dash and just added Ethanol % to it . I will modify the lcs file accordingly for the G4X . Many Thanks for your fantastic support
  2. Hi My friend just switched from the G4+ to the G4X . We set the CAN stream to the Link Generic , that we also used on his G4+ However , the output is different on the G4X and not like inGeneric Dash.lcs the description Here is the Output versus the Displayed values in the Software . In General it only seems to convert integegers to HEX (So no Conversion from RAW neccesary and values are rounded ) In the Description of the protocol in the G4x helpfile the protocol has not changed compared to the G4+. But i see for instance the temperatures should have a offset of -50 as they are sent as unsigned integers ECT is shown in the software with 23 degrees so i would expect 0x4300 which is 73 dec , but i am receiving 0x1700 which is 23 dec . The same behaviour seems to be with all the Temps Here is the CAN Data i receive : (1591528882.121744) can0 3E8#0000000065000000 (1591528882.121855) can0 3E8#0100660004000000 (1591528882.121974) can0 3E8#0200000000001700 // ECT is sent without the offset so only positive numbers are possible (1591528882.122098) can0 3E8#030015000B000000 //Battery voltage should be 11.97V but i only receive a value of 11 dec = 0x0B00 instead of 1197 dec (1591528882.122223) can0 3E8#0400000000000000 (1591528882.122352) can0 3E8#0500000000000000 (1591528882.122474) can0 3E8#0600000000000000 (1591528882.122596) can0 3E8#0700000000000E00 (1591528882.122721) can0 3E8#0800000001000000 (1591528882.122846) can0 3E8#0900000000000000 (1591528882.122978) can0 3E8#0A00000000000000 (1591528882.123097) can0 3E8#0B00000000000000 (1591528882.123224) can0 3E8#0C00000000000000 (1591528882.123347) can0 3E8#0D00510000000000 Could you please clarify if this is a bug , or did i set up something incorrect ? Kind Regards Markus
  3. Thank you for the input . I think i will stay with 4 wheel inputs then and sacrifice my 2nd can bus DI1 Traction control Button DI2 Ethanol Sensor DI3 AC request button DI4 L/F wheel speed DI5 R/F wheel speed DI6 L/R wheel speed DI7 R/R wheel speed DI8 Clutch switch DI9 Start pos DI10 Power Steering I read a couple of threads where people use a rotary switch with different resistances to switch between different traction profiles via AN Volt input ( exactly what i am planning to do ) but it seems the traction control on/off has to be assigned directly to a DI via a virtual aux correct ? Is there a specific reason that i require a DI for the traction control on off switch and can't use a AN input with a rotary switch and some resistors directly ?
  4. I have a question regarding traction control on a G4 Fury. Is there any benefit running 4 wheel speed inputs compared to just 2 ( one front one rear ) ? I am still in the process of wiring and i am running out of digitial inputs (and i don't want to scrifice the can2 for additional digital inputs ) , hence my question . The car in question is a Rx7 Series 6 .

    G4 Fury on Rx7 FD3S

    Microsoft paint and lots of patience :-) I made the sugested changes . So i understand you correct that on the AEM coils i was right to use Sensor Ground ( As this was what AEM's diagram indicates ) My last question is with regards to the FAN relais . The Rx7 has 4 Fan relais from what i can gather i am unsure to which one i have to connect it . I want to use INj7 to switch on the fan do you have maybe any drawing of the Rx7 FD Fan wiring ?

    G4 Fury on Rx7 FD3S

    So I put the wheel speeds via ABS sensors aside for now . I don't have a OMP or Aircon But i will have a RX8 DBW Throttle and Pedal as well as AEM Smart coils and dual fuel pumps . I made a mockup diagram and wanted to know if that looks correct ?

    G4 Fury on Rx7 FD3S

    So i have received my G4 Fury which i will start to wire up this weekend into my RX7 FD3S Series 6 . I was planning to use the 4 ABS sensors as wheel speed sensors do do traction control via E-Throttle with a RX8 Pedal and RX8 Throttle body . So here are my questions : 1. Can i just splice into the ABS Sensors (as i plan to still use the ABS) ? 2. Can someone tell me the Link settings for the RX7 Series 6 ABS Sensors 3.Can i Run also a 5th speed input ( OEM gearbox sensor ) for general speed (this is the speed i want to ouput as vehicle speed on can for my dash )
  8. I have been able to sucsessful add extra parameters with new frames to the Generic LInk CAN protocol The Link protocol displays Lambda on the Generic CAN Protocol . I would like to add a additional source to display A/F ratio ( i prefer AF to Lambda) . But i am not sure which one is the correct Parameter .

    CAN Pinout on PCB ?

    I am trying to figure out which Pins on the PCB CAN/RS232 are CAN high and CAN low but i could not find the info anywhere in the help files . Could someone point out CAN High and CAN Low for me on the connector
  10. I am trying to do the same for a friend of mine , is it possible to get more info on the CAN ID's and conversions for the MicroTech Automotive CAN Protocol Version 2.0 ?
  11. Thank you very much for the Awesome and fast Tech support :-) This was the exact info i needed Kind Regards Markus
  12. Thanks for clarifying that . That was a good explanation .My Device is a Raspberry pi with CAN BUS hat and a Touch screen which runs my own programmed software and is used as a Datalogger as well as a Graphical Dashboard . I have already implemented The Haltech V2 as well as the Adaptronic Protocol in my device , so i wanted to make a CAN configuration file for the Link to output the data in either the Haltech or Adaptronic Format as i already implemented those in the software . So just for a final clarification for my use case i would define my 6 channels one per ID and leave the Offset always on 0
  13. Hi I am new to the forum I would like to configure the CAN output format but i have still a few questions The output format i want to create is 11-BIT identifier + 8 Bytes payload All bits are 16 Bit Signed integer values in BIg Endian format I would like to define CAN ID's from 0x300 onwards to be output What i have so far is in the first tab "CAN Setup Mode": CAN Module :CAN1 Mode: User Defined Bit Rate 1 MBits/s Channel 1 Transmit User Stream1 CAN ID 300 Format :Normal This seems all still very clear to me (my assumption is that ID300 is just the Start adress right ?) Now when i define the frames : Lets say Frame 1 would be for ID300 Parameter Start Width Byte order Type Divider Multiplier Offset Parameter 1 0 16 MS First Signed 1 1 0 Parameter 2 16 16 MS First Signed 1 1 0 Parameter 3 32 16 MS First Signed 1 1 0 Parameter 4 48 16 MS First Signed 1 1 0 How would i make Frame two to be at ID 310 for instance , do i just change the offset ? Is my understanding correct that Offset is decimal ? so Decimal 16 = Hex 10 therefore offset 16 = ID310 ? ID 310 Parameter Start Width Byte order Type Divider Multiplier Offset Parameter 1 0 16 MS First Signed 1 1 16 Parameter 2 16 16 MS First Signed 1 1 16 Parameter 3 32 16 MS First Signed 1 1 16 Parameter 4 48 16 MS First Signed 1 1 16 Am i correct with this assumtion ?
