TECH DETAILS
ECU connection
AiM systems acquire data from the ECU of your vehicle.
The list of available ECU drivers, constantly updated and upgraded, includes 1,000 + different ECUs, either Stock and Racing; they are sorted by manufacturer/vehicle model: for each ECU you find the proprietary communication protocols, including the standard OBDII ones.
From a hardware point of view, AiM systems manage the following data lines: CAN, RS232 and K-Line.

Second CAN
An innovative AiM systems feature is its CAN2 line, managing data coming from your additional modules (i.e. ABS, traction control, infrared temperature sensors and more...).
This feature meets the requirements of a growing number of racers, as the use of additional modules is becoming quite common in a number of series.

Sensors
Many sensors can be connected to EVO5:
8 analog channels with configurable 12 bit 0-5 Volt, 0-500 mV, 0-50 mV inputs or thermocouple input, used to sample data coming from temperature, pressure, suspension and other kinds of sensors.
4 speed inputs, which allow to monitor the different wheels behavior.
1 RPM input, which manages square wave signals transmitted by the ECU, or pulse signals picked from the coil command (low voltage).
1 built-in inertial platform: an integrated three-axial accelerometer and gyro sensor let you have the most powerful system to understand oversteering, understeering, banking, etc.
