MyChron5
Data acquisition for karts enters a totally new dimension: MyChron5, besides sampling all your kart data, features all the advantages of a new concept GPS plus a lot of new functions, designed to provide more complete and reliable information.
Lap and split times, speed, RPM and one temperature as well as position on track, acceleration and much more.
MyChron5 has been designed to provide either basic info to newbies and the most sophisticated data to karting professionals.
MyChron5 2T also samples a second temperature at your choice.
MyChron4, for ten years the benchmark gauge in karting data acquisition, and all its imitations, will now definitely appear too scanty for your ambitions.
Discover the features making MyChron5 a new generation gauge:
The most precise and reliable GPS ever
MyChron5 GPS samples lap times and a huge amount of data designed to improve your performance, with precision and reliability never seen before.
Great readability in all situations
A wide backlited display, with optimal brightness and contrast in all light conditions provides perfect visualization of your data.
Customised data visualisation
Lap times and all info you wish are shown in pages designed to provide all your kart data in the clearest and best readable way.
Multifunction LEDs: all the information
you need, when you need it
All MyChron5 RGB LEDs are individually configurable to be activated when you wish and in the way you want in order to provide the appropriate info in the exact moment you need it.
Wi-Fi connection to save you time on track
Wi-Fi connection permits you to easily configure your MyChron5 and download data in a moment.
Power your MyChron5 in three different ways
MyChron5 comes with a lithium battery lasting more than ten hours, which can be charged at home exactly like a mobile, or on track using the box socket: in the latter case you don't need to remove it from the gauge.
If you like, you can also power MyChron5 connecting it to your kart battery.
Race Studio 3: the easy and most powerful analysis software
Download and analyze your data with Race Studio 3. You'll discover how to improve your kart performance and your driving style.
Indestructible chassis and display
MyChron5 chassis, buttons and display have been designed to guarantee maximum resistance and functionality in all conditions.
Dedicated steering wheel
For its 'racing' design and making, MyChron5 Steering Wheel is the ideal housing for your newest MyChron5.
Full compatibility with MyChron4 expansions and add-ons
You can connect all additional modules you wish to your MyChron5, including your old MyChron4 ones (see connection scheme).
MyChron5 GPS,
the most powerful
GPS ever
We were all used to lap time acquisition via magnetic strips, infrared beacons or even the good old stopwatch. MyChron5 completely changes the rules of the game because its GPS samples lap and split times as well as speed, position on track and acceleration... with precision and reliability simply not comparable to traditional tools and even with previous GPS systems.

Much more than just lap times
Fantastic readability
To maximise readability of data, you need plenty of room. That is why MyChron5 features a wide 268x128 pixel graphical display. The screen can be backlited in one of the eight available colors.
The incorporated light sensor makes brightness and contrast ideal in all light conditions.
Choose optimal layout for your data
Lap and split times, best lap, RPM, gear number, track map and much more are shown in pre-configured pages: you will be able to choose the page layout you prefer to better monitor your data.
At the end of your session, you can recall the summary of your three best laps: lap time, max/min RPM, speed and temperature.
For your best lap, you will also see splits and best theoretical time.
Is it your best lap or do you need to shift? Multifunctional LEDs will tell you
MyChron5 features five individually configurable RGB LEDs: you will choose color and value thresholds for their activation. In addition, they can be configured to show your best lap/split time, monitor RPM level and even signal the right moment for gear shift.
Monitor water temperature or any other parameter
with configurable alarm LEDs
You can configure alarm LEDs as well, in order to turn them on/off depending on the values you selected: water temperature or any other parameter you may need.
Wireless data download
with Wi-Fi connection
MyChron5 offers the opportunity to download the data wirelessly, using an easy and safe Wi-Fi connection: no data key or PC connection are needed anymore. Wi-Fi data transfer is easily configurable via PC or keyboard. In case of a connection of more than one gauge/PC (a typical situation in a team)
it is possible to transfer data to/from all MyChron5 devices and PC's at the same time.
In this case you would need to buy an access point, which will act as a bridge between
the gauges and the PC's.
External power or battery charge?
You choose.
You can power MyChron5:
By socket, using the charger included in the kit.
By socket, using the proper charger*: in this case, you do not need to remove it from the gauge.
Just use the external power cable*.
The lithium battery - not being used - can be removed: in this case the aluminum cover* is to be applied to protect the power connectors.
*Optional

Race Studio 3:
the best tool to understand how to go faster
At the end of each session, your data can be downloaded and analysed in depth on your PC with Race Studio 3 software: charts, graphs and histograms will help you to understand your performance, finding out what needs to be improved.
A simply indestructible chassis
A glass fiber reinforced Nylon body along with metal buttons and anti-scratch non-reflecting polycarbonate display guarantee MyChron5 top resistance to shocks and adverse weather conditions.
Two temperatures under your control
Especially engineered for the most demanding racers, MyChron5 2T permits you to monitor your kart performances by controlling two engine temperatures instead of one.
MyChron5 2T samples data related to two temperatures, coming from:


Two thermocouples:
to keep carburation under control

Two thermoresistors:
to measure the engine's working temperature

One thermocouple and one thermoresistor:
to monitor the key parameters of your engine
