MoTeC’s C Series Displays contain a comprehensive lap timing system that gives drivers all the information about their lap, without complex setup requirements.
The default lap timing method used with C Series Displays is GPS. This method is very accurate (with an average variance to track timing of 0.0088s) and as such is suitable for most applications. Install the GPS as per the install notes included with the GPS hardware.
*Note it is recommended that a GPS is installed on the roof or highest point of a vehicle, even though it may work in other areas.
Features of the MoTeC lap timing system:
Automatic update of GPS lap co-ordinates
- No need to manually insert GPS locations into the display. As you go from track to track, the dash selects the right co-ordinates automatically.
NEW – Hands free fastest lap updating
- Fastest laps in the C Series Displays are used to show drivers their fastest lap time as well as provide a base for the Gain/Loss display. When the driver goes quicker than their fastest lap time, the C Series Display automatically updates the fastest lap time value, and the Gain/Loss base updates to this new mark.
Fastest Lap Reset (Hold Alarm Acknowledge for 4 seconds)
- To make the most of the new Hands Free fastest lap updating feature a driver can choose to:
- Make fastest lap time apply to this session only
- Keep the fastest lap time from the last session
- Manually load a fast lap time from a previous session
- If alarm reset is held for 4 seconds, the currently held fastest lap time is set to 0, and it is automatically updated to a new value as the first lap time is completed.
The new C Series Displays now make important session information easy to use. Session Time, Laps Completed and Fastest Lap Time are all displayed on the default screens in prominent places, and reset as part of the Session Start reset.
- Session Start (Hold Alarm Acknowledge for 3 seconds)
- By holding the alarm reset button down for 3 seconds, the C Series Display recognises that a new session has begun. The dash resets the following channels:
- Lap Number
- Lap Time
- Session Timer
- The addition of a Session Timer in the standard template lets the driver know how long the session has been running. This invaluable information tells a driver how much time is left in those valuable practice and qualifying sessions.
- With the session reset, the driver can now be sure that their lap count is up to date.
Alarms in the C Series Displays can now be controlled in an all new way.
Alarms can still be created and modified in the alarm section of the C Series Manager software and when they become active, they are still displayed as a text overlay on the bottom row of the display.
The big change is the new ability to recall and view the status of any currently active alarms. By simply pressing the alarm acknowledge button whilst no alarms are displayed, the C Series Display brings up a multi-line box showing the state of all active alarms.
This is extremely useful if numerous alarms are active at one time and the driver needs to be able to see them all.
The C Series device is now ready to use. From here there are new features that you can customise to get the most from your C Series Display.
