See trigger problems for an explaination of polarity, arming voltage and so on.
trig sensor type
Specifies input type of the sensor.
Specifies whether to trig on rising or falling edge of signal.
Arming voltages <-- only available for VR-sensors.
The voltage of the signal to be used as the trigger point.
•Manual table - Manually enter the trigger arm voltages in the table. Use the built-on oscilloscope to determine the levels, a good presentation is to use 50% of the highest voltage detected at the given RPM.
•Automatic tracking - Automatic trigger arm tracking.
threshold voltages <-- only available for digital sensors.
The voltage of the signal to be used as the trigger point, can be used to tune the voltages if the sensor output voltage is lower than usual.
•default (3.5/2.0V) - Manually enter the trigger arm voltages in the table.
•Custom settings: Rising edge threshold - The voltage over which the signal is considered "high". Should be at least 0.5V above the falling edge threshold, and preferably at least 0.5V below the actual high voltage.
•Custom settings: falling edge threshold - The voltage below which the signal is considered "low". Should be at least 0.5V lower than the rising edge threshold voltage.
Your highest voltage is 3V, and lowest voltage is 1V, then Rising edge threshold should be ~2.5V and the Falling edge threshold should be ~1.5V.
trigger pullup resistor <-- only available for digital sensors.
Whether to use the internal pullup resistor or not. Only available on digital inputs.
See, trigger systems for a list of available trigger systems.
See, trigger systems for a list of available home trigger systems.
Cam signal position
Specifies whether CAM signal is received before or after TDC.
Specifies number of teeth on crankshaft trigger wheel INCLUDING missing teeth's.
Specifies number of missing teeth's on trigger wheel.
Sync window size
Specifies length of the longest hole in the CAS trigger wheel. Only visible with Nissan CAS trigger.
If you are running a sequential trigger system and you detect that the system fires on the wrong engine cycle (360 degree wrong), flip this setting. (it is the same as adding 360 degree to the below first tooth angle).
advanced trigger options
Note: Only visible when a missing tooth trigger system i selected.
Advanced trigger options
Enable/disable the advanced trigger options. Only activate if you have trigger problems during crank and know what you are doing.
Trigger time tolerance
•Adaptive cranking tolerances
•Extra tolerance at low RPM
•1.5 missing tooth (Renault Megane 3 RS)
Missing tooth tolerance
Is the required lenght of the current signal compared to the largest difference over the last two engine revolutions.
Note: 80% is a good starting point for an average looking trigger signal. The adaptive system is only used BELOW ENGINE Max cranking RPM in your engine settings.
First tooth angle
The actual sensor position from engine TDC.
Enable this to lock ignition to zero and disable fuel. Used in combination with a timing light to make sure timing is correct.
Note: When engine is started, there is an ignition lock function which can be used to lock ignition at certain ignition advance regardless of engine RPM.
Disable fuel and ignition
Turns off the ignition, fuel, and fuel pump (s).
Used for testings without starting the engine.
Note: When this function is active, it completely disables fuel and ignition outputs, even the Diagnostics --> Output test features.
MaxxECU supports VR and digital sensor (hall-effect, opto) on crank and/or cam.
