Edelbrock QwikData Acquisition System
Created by a Proven Leader in Racing!
Adjustable High Speed Data Logging
With the capability of sampling data at extremely high rates, QwikData out-performs the competition. Data sample rates are adjustable, up to 500 samples per second. You can also configure QwikData to average incoming data over multiple samples to smooth noisy data samples. Selection of an appropriate sample rate lets you tailor QwikData to your racing application. Non-adjustable units may have a sample rate that is too fast, collecting more data than needed and reducing available data logging time. If the sample rate is too slow, logged data will be inaccurate. QwikData has these features...
Large Data Storage Capacity QwikData provides 1 megabyte of non-volatile memory, much more than most other systems, and requires no power to retain data.
Up To 30 Data Input Channels The basic unit comes equipped with 8 analog inputs and 6 digital inputs. The advanced unit has 24 analog input channels and 6 digital inputs. (The basic unit is factory upgradable to 24 analog input channels.) The digital inputs can record on/off events, frequency (such as mph, rpm, and digital mass air flow sensor), or duty cycle (such as fuel injectors and turbo boost controller).
Windows® Interface The computer software provided is simple and intuitive to use. An IBM-based 486 laptop computer capable of running Windows® 3.1 is required for data analysis. The entire system can be configured from menus using a mouse. No complicated programming is required.
Programmable Outputs The two outputs provided with QwikData can be programmed to operate shift lights, warning lights, etc. These outputs are configured via pull-down menus and can be activated based on any one or two of the input channels. For example Output 1 can be configured to either shut down the engine or trigger a warning light when oil pressure drops below 20 psi or water temperature goes above 250°F.
Sophisticated Data Analysis Historical trend graphs of any 8 user selectable input channels against time or distance.
Real Time Display Use for monitoring engine warm-up, dyno sessions, troubleshooting, or real time telemetry via radio modem.
Multiple Lap/Run Comparison Up to 64 runs or laps can be overlayed for comparison, depending on the sample rate.
Internet Upgrades The software embedded in the QwikData unit is stored in a chip (FLASH EPROM) and can be updated easily from this Edelbrock web site.
Fully Assembled Wiring Harness A fully assembled wiring harness with pre-installed connectors is provided. Each sensor is supplied with the appropriate mating connector for quick and easy installation.
