Can I custom configure the EMU-1 gauges?
Yes, there is a custom gauge manager within Actisense Toolkit.
There is a beta option of Toolkit available with a ‘Custom Gauge Manager’ option to enter manual calibration readings for various gauges and senders. This requires a technician to take readings from the gauges using a multi-meter and then enter this corresponding data into the configuration program. This will allow for any analogue gauge to be catered for if the installer fills in the voltmeter readings vs. observed parameter on the existing gauge.
However, Actisense is actively analysing gauges and senders from all manufacturers to help create a comprehensive library of easy to select gauge options, with the end goal of making this manual configuration option unnecessary.
What parameters will the future Software or Configuration updates support?
Actisense welcomes any suggestions for new EMU-1 features and gauge compatibilities that will be added to the ‘wish list’. Current items on the EMU-1 ‘wish list’ are:
- Trim: PGN 127489 (as of v1.102, Tilt/Trim has been added as a supported feature within the EMU-1)
- Engine Parameters, Static: PGN 127498
