Bosch Motorsport will be showing off its latest Sport Line DDU 7 dash logger at the NEC in Birmingham during the Autosport International from January 12 to 15. The logger is based on the current DDU 8 Performance Line dash logger. It incorporates a freely programmable color dashboard and a data logging system.
The full-color, 5.7-inch trans-reflective TFT display is integrated with 10 fully configurable, multicolor LEDs. The equipment enables synchronized acquisition as well as the visualization of engine data from the chassis data and ECU from six analogue and four digital wheel-speed input channels.
Other input devices can also be connected through two CAN buses and Ethernet. Through high-speed Ethernet, recorded data from the internal 2GB flash memory can be downloaded.
Further applications such as rallying are also supported with the increased display size. Also, the DDU 7 has a lightweight synthetic material housing with an optional upgrade offering data recording on a removable USB flash drive. The equipment is part of Bosch's lineup of dashboard instruments, control units and data loggers, which are adaptable to suit individual vehicles.
The Bosch Motorsport division is also working closely with manufacturers to create solutions to suit the specific needs of customers. Bosch's stand will feature the new Aston Martin Vantage GT4 befitted with the race-developed Bosch Motorsport ABS M4 and traction control system.
