DigiTyre ECUs Three variants of DigiTyre TPMS ECUs are available
(MDE v2, DigiTyre Lite ECU and Kompact MDE) all of which have the same
functionality, but are housed in different packaging, to suit different
applications. None of those enclosures are suitable for the rigors of off-road
racing. Because of this, we have repackaged the BF1 DigiTyre ECU into an IP67
rated enclosure for any use!
The ECU is the control unit for the entire system. The ECU
can be loaded with a permit list containing up to 300-wheel sensors, which can
either be manually assigned to positions (if a system with only antennas is
being used) or can be automatically assigned positions (if a system using LF
Satellite Triggers is being used).
The ECU outputs data via a high-speed CAN connection (baud
rate can be configured for 1Mbit, 500Kbit or 250Kbit), with pre-determined CAN
frames (please contact bf1systems for the CAN specification).
The ECU should be powered from a 13.5V power supply but will
survive exposure to voltages in the range +9V to +18V. The typical current draw
of the system is no more than 300mA.
This data can then be either logged, and/or displayed on the
driver’s dashboard or the bf1systems digital display.
The ECU can monitor the tire pressures to provide alerts for
the following warnings, all of which can be configured by the user:
pressure warning (small pressure loss)
· Hard pressure warning
(large pressure loss)
· Rapid pressure loss
· Over pressure warning
· Over temperature warning
These warnings are all configured using the supplied
DigiTyre PC software, which communicates with the ECU via an RS232 connection.
The PC software also allows configuration of the CAN message IDs, and provides
real time information on the status of the system, and any live or logged
