A Huge Step Forward
EVO5 is the evolution of the traditional datalogger that, all over the years, has become a standard de facto acquisition system in a huge amount of championships. With its compact aluminum body, EVO5 can be easily placed in any vehicle. Its configuration with the new Race Studio 3 software is simple and immediate.
A wide range of sources for your data
The EVO5 samples all the information you need coming from your bike ECU via CAN, RS232 or K-line, from the internal accelerometers and gyro, from the GPS08 Module included in the kit and from analog/digital inputs, external expansions as well as predefined math channels.
Sensors can be connected to 8 configurable analog channels, to the RPM input and to 4 wheel speed inputs.
Aim systems acquire data from the ECU of your vehicle. The list of available ECU drivers, constantly updated and upgraded, includes 1,000 + different ECUs, either Stock and Racing; they are sorted by manufacturer/vehicle model: for each ECU you find the proprietary communication protocols, including the standard OBDII ones.
From a hardware point of view, Aim systems manage the following data lines: CAN, RS232 and K-Line.
An innovative Aim systems feature is its CAN2 line, managing data coming from your additional modules (i.e. ABS, traction control, infrared temperature sensors and more. This feature meets the requirements of a growing number of racers, as the use of additional modules is becoming quite common in a number of series.
Many sensors can be connected to EVO5:
- 8 analog channels with configurable 12 bit 0-5 Volt, 0-500 mV, 0-50 mV inputs or thermocouple input, used to sample data coming from temperature, pressure, suspension and other kinds of sensors.
- 4 speed inputs, which allow to monitor the different wheels behavior.
- 1 RPM input, which manages square wave signals transmitted by the ECU, or pulse signals picked from the coil command (low voltage).
- 1 built-in inertial platform: an integrated three-axial accelerometer and gyro sensor let you have the most powerful system to understand oversteering, understeering, banking, etc.
EVO5 GPS08 Module
GPS technology represents a true revolution in racing data acquisition.
Now, thanks to GPS08 Module and Race Studio 3 software, as soon as you start your track session you can immediately sample lap and split times as well as speed, position and acceleration, in fact, all the information needed for engine tuning as well as for improving your driver performance.
Two satellite systems: top reliability and precision, the GPS08 is more precise than most of the existing GPS systems, as it has been designed to add to the GPS satellite's signal the Global Navigation Satellite (Glonass) system's signal. With an average of almost twenty satellites working in conjunction, GPS08 guarantees a precision and a reliability simply not comparable to the old generation GPS systems.
Two digital outputs
EVO5 features two digital outputs.The two digital outputs (Dout) are LOW SIDE
type (switch to ground): they can be configured in order to be turned on/off depending on the value of the analog or digital inputs. They permit to automatically run external systems, i.e. to switch on/off additional lights, to activate / de-activate a cooling fan or circulation pumps, etc. when a certain event happens.
With the CAN Output you can send messages directly to an existing CAN network in order to improve the range of vehicle control possibilities.
The Internal SD Card
Allows you to record all possible data you may ever need. The card is protected by a waterproof door equipped with a sensor closing all files when you open it, to prevent any data loss possibility. No way to have a faster data downloading: you remove the SD and it is done.
Configure the system and download your data over a secure 802.11 WiFi connection, even if your car is 100 meters far from you.

Technical & Installation
For a correct EVO5 installation it is important to follow some simple rules.
Carry out CAN, serial or K-line connection only AFTER performing the logger configuration with Race Studio 3. For a correct working of the integrated three-axial accelerometer and gyroscope, EVO5 is to be placed in a central position of the car (ideally in the vehicle's centre of gravity).
GPS module is not to be positioned under metal or carbon fibre objects, which would greatly reduce the satellite signal quality. Also avoid the positioning close to other antennas, digital cameras or TFT displays. Finally, avoid installing the product with tense cables.
