1. Eight injector drivers for full sequential operation on engines up to eight cylinders. Staging injection possible in some applications. May be set for 'semi-sequential' operation on engines that have more than 8 cylinders (e.g. 12 cylinder engine using 6 groups of two cylinders). All common port injector types catered for (0.9 ohm to 16 ohm coil resistance) with selectable Low or High current driver. When ordering, request an initial configuration to suit injectors. Drive current selection is field re-configurable.
2. Four open collector outputs for triggering Capacitor Discharge or Smart Inductive Ignition Modules.
Note: Standard product does NOT provide dwell control (installation of optional dwell control interface module/s is required).
3. Single coil distributor, twin coil distributor or multicoil distributor-less ignition configurations are possible on most engines.
4. Fuel pump safety shut-off. Pump stops 3 to 4 seconds after the engine stops.
5. One auxiliary output in addition to Fuel Pump control. Auxiliary output is PWM and On-Off capable and can be used for Boost Control, Nitrous oxide, Staged Injectors, Camshaft timing (2 position), Cooling Fan control, Charge Cooling control (Water Spray or intercooler fan), Idle valve, Fuel Used Pulse, Gear Shift Light, etc...
6. Spare Injector Outputs can be used as additional On-Off Outputs.
7. User choice of Manifold absolute pressure or Throttle position as Engine load input. Internal absolute pressure sensor for simplified installation 0 to 200 kPa (0 to 29.4 PSI) and 0 to 300 kPa (0 to 44.1 PSI) available from stock. 0 to 450 kPa (0 to 66.1 PSI) available on request.
8. Autronic Patented ‘Mass-flow determination method’ simplifies fuel delivery calibration, especially for multi-butterfly or variable inlet geometry engines equipped with forced induction. This method, combined with other measures, ensures precise fuel delivery matching, irrespective of altitude.
9. Compensation of engine control parameters for engine operation over a wide altitude range (fuel delivery, ignition timing and boost pressure).
10. Unique transient calibration strategy allows accurate control of fuel delivery under both acceleration and deceleration.
11. Direct connect a narrow band O2 sensor for closed loop emissions control, or a compatible wide band Air-fuel ratio meter (e.g. Autronic MAFM1) for full range engine tuning.
12. Autronic ‘Autotune’ self-tune software feature for air-fuel ratio calibration requiring minimal user intervention (compatible with firmware versions from v1.13).
13. Closed loop (feedback) boost pressure control for turbocharged engines with calibration curve.
14. Closed loop (feedback) idle speed control.
15. Adaptive learning (with memory) to minimize the number of user setups required and to provide optimal control of air/fuel ratio, boost pressure and idle stability.
16. Precise compensation for injector dead-time and non-linearity. Large library of predefined compensations for popular injector types.
17. Precise spark advance control strategy for both static and dynamic operating conditions.
18. User selectable spark and fuel delivery strategies for abnormal engine operating conditions (e.g. over heated or over boosted) that allow continued engine use with reduced risk of engine damage.
19. Comprehensive limp-home functions with user selectable default settings that, whenever possible, ensure engine operation can continue after sensor failure has occurred.
20. Coolant temperature dependent Rev Limiter with soft characteristic that uses a combination of fuel delivery and spark control.
21. Flat Shift & Anti-Lag (Turbo boost enhancement) are available (depending on Firmware version fitted).
22. Diagnostic/Error indicator light with memory for reporting sensor or ECU fault conditions. Ideal for detection of intermittent fault conditions. Error history information is also accessible from P.C. screen.
23. User configurable internal data logging of up to 17 channels with the selected channels being sampled as fast as 50 times a second. 24k bytes of non-volatile memory. Peak capture feature aids detection of over-rev, over-boost and over-temperature conditions.
24. Serial data port can be used in a bi-directional communication mode for P.C. calibration, monitoring and data logging, or in unidirectional mode for data streaming output to a Dash / Data logger. Remote adjustment and/or monitoring are possible if Radio modems are added to the serial link.
25. Simultaneous and independent operation of the internal data logger and serial port data link is allowed.
26. Compatible with optional No.1 cylinder spark plug pick-up interface unit that allows sequential injector operation on engines equipped with distributor ignition, without the need for separate crank/camshaft sensors or a special multi-sensor distributor.
Note: The above list describes the product family capability. Individual product feature set depends upon firmware version fitted. See ‘SMC ECU FIRMWARE VERSION - FEATURE MATRIX’ document.
