Why didnt you bail me out with that around 18 hours ago ya gitlmao Im learning though but not quick enough! Had another look tonight properly at the wasted spark arrangement and seems fairly straight forward as well!Originally posted by ATC
The trouble with other systems is that with large injectors the ecu may not control them properly as the injector drivers are saturated type, Autroinic has peak and hold type drivers and opening and holding current can be programed for the injector that you are using, if the paramaters are already known for the injector it can simply be selected from a list.
The result is a pwm signal as small as .7 msec and can easily control 1000cc/min injector on a 500 cc cylinder with perfect idle and low CO%, whereas other ecu's cant get pwm below 2.0 msec and so dont give the same control.
When resolution is questioned it is clear that DTA for example has 14x20 map, If a row was needed between 4500 and 5000 rpm and all the rows were at 500 rpm increments the upper half of the map will have to be rewritten to accomadate the new sites and the highest rpm deleted or the map resolution reduced , with Autronic you simply insert the extra row or column and the software will even give you interpolated figgures for the new sites, with 32x16 there is more sites available to do this and a more accurate map can be generated the minimum map size is 1x1 up to the maximum, and not fixed like some of the others
There are many features of the Autronic ecu's which are better than other ecu's in similar ways, its not just about firing plugs and squirting fuel, without wishing to sound crass I understand that there are many competent systems on the market and I have used many of them but given the capability of Autronic I'm affraid they just dont compare.
As for price, the ecu alone is less than the motec but as I add bits like amp additional sensors and a map to make it a comprehemsive kit for the LET naturally the price becomes more, (the motec price quoted will not include these items, they will be at additional expense) as you did not know that the price comparison that Autronic is better for less, I think is fair.
