Starlane Athon XS 10Hz GPS LAPTIMER - SPECIFICALLY PACKAGED FOR SCOOTER AND KART
10Hz GPS Laptimer with intermediates - Digital Tachometer with LED bar and ultra bright. Shift Light - Backlit. GPS Speed, Engaged Gear, double Hour Meter, includes Water Temperature sensor with 19mm sleeve, Thermocouple K sensor for exhaust temperature, 9Volts battery case. Data download to USB pendrive. CAN BUS line for optional expansion modules.
The first and sole gps laptimers in the world totally "driver and pc independent" for the finish line and intermediates positioning.
If you don't want to use your computer or press buttons on the track, the safd-2 feature (starlane automatic finish line detection), will split automatically the track after the first 2 laps run, allowing you to see your laptimes and intermediates from the very first session without any action on the laptimer.
ATHON XS is surely by full right the most innovative product in the field for the philosophy, by virtue of which it has been conceived and designed as well as for its technology enclosed in a compact design executed with the greatest care.
With the new S.E.P.L.A. (Starlane Enhanced Precision Laptiming Algorithm) feature: a new laptiming algorithm allowing very hi laptiming precision also in conditions of not good data on the official GPS signal.
ATHON XS allows the data download directly on your USB pendrive, with this solution you can enjoy it without bringing your computer on the track area.
Digirace-MMX software will automatically recognize your USB pendrive and the new sessions to be downloaded.
Another feature making unique ATHON XS is the possibility to be connected to the optional CAN BUS expansion module that allows the acquisition from external sensors (eg. throttle, suspensions, etc.), completing your data acquisition system.
1) GPS RECEIVER AND ANTENNA BUILT IN THE INSTRUMENT:
the Athon shock-proof ABS body accommodates the 10Hz. GPS receiver and the relative antenna. This solution can make it really handy and simple, not requiring the installation of any additional detail on the vehicle.
2) YOU CAN SAY GOOD-BYE TO ALL UNPRACTICAL INFRARED TRANSMITTERS ARRANGED ON THE PIT WALL:
the use of the GPS system intended to detect the lap time will make ATHON completely autonomous, requiring no beacon transmitters, such as the infrared ones used by old-generation systems.
Everything is getting much simpler. It is no longer necessary to arrange the transmitter and to recharge the battery, which is extremely annoying and unpractical, with the risk of forgetting it on the wall or having it stolen.
3) MANAGEMENT OF THE FINISH LINE AND 3 INTERMEDIATES:
you can set up the coordinates of 4 lap trigger lines (main finish line + 3 optional intermediates). Whenever you cross a finish line or an intermediate, ATHON will indicate the relative split time and store its value. You can therefore quickly evaluate your own performance even if you are driving along a part of the track far from the main straight stretch, which would be expensive and unpractical if you used any other type of laptimer.
4) INDICATION OF THE ACHIEVABLE IDEAL TIME:
by managing intermediates, ATHON can calculate the time a driver can ideally achieve for every single session. This function is obtained by adding the best sectorial times. This will help you understand the lap time you might have achieved if there had been no traffic in a specific point of the track or if you had done a lap on top of your absolute performance.
5) DOUBLE FUNCTION "BEST LAP" LED:
the "BEST LAP" LED will turn on if you have improved your previous lap and it will blink if the lap you have just done is the best of the session. This solution will supply the driver with all the information necessary for performance without any distraction.
If you have set up intermediate finish lines, the LED is also enabled whenever you cross an intermediate. This means that this instrument is extremely useful to realise without any distraction whether you are improving compared to the same intermediate time of the previous lap or whether you have just accomplished the best intermediate time of the session.
6) GPS SPEED MEASUREMENT:
the advantage of using a GPS system is also that you can measure the vehicle speed with the highest degree of accuracy without having to install any sensor on the vehicle. No user setup is required and, above all, any measurement is always accurate, not altered by the inclination of the vehicle or wheel skidding.
7) ENGINE SPEED INDICATOR WITH SETTABLE LED BAR AND SHIFT LIGHT:
ATHON is not only a chronometer and tachometer, but also an engine speed indicator. You can set the power-on engine speed of the LED bar, which will gradually turn on up to the shift engine speed set by the user and signalled by the 3 high-power blue LEDS of the Shift Light. You can also display the speed. The engine speed can be measured by arranging the inductive cable in the proximity of an ignition coil or by connecting the signal wire to the original speed indicator.
8) ENGAGED GEAR INDICATOR and WATER TEMPERATURE WITH SETTABLE ALARM:
ATHON XS can also indicate the engaged gear by calculating the ratio between the engine revolutions and the wheel speed. It can also indicate the water temperature by means of an optional temperature sensor.
You can set a light alarm threshold for the thermocouple sensor.
9) INPUT FOR EXHAUST OR OIL TEMPERATURE WITH SETTABLE ALARM:
ATHON XS comes with a specific input for the optional Thermocouple type K to acquire the exhaust temperature, needed for the correct carburation on 2 stroke engines, or oil temperature for 4 stroke enginesè dotato di un ingresso per sonda termocoppia K opzionale che consente di rilevare la temperatura dei gas di scarico, necessaria per la corretta carburazione dei motori 2 tempi, oppure la temperatura olio per i motori 4 tempi. You can set a light alarm threshold for the thermocouple sensor.
10) DOUBLE HOUR COUNTER FOR THE PERFECT PERIODICAL MAINTENANCE OF THE VEHICLE:
ATHON has also got two hour counters that can be separately reset for the periodical maintenance of the vehicle. Hour counters are activated to receive the tacho signal and the GPS speed signal. This solution can operate the hour counters even if you do not wish to connect the tacho signal.
11) DATA DOWNLOAD TO USB PENDRIVE:
ATHON XS fits a wired USB socket, that can be easily positioned into the fairing, in which you can plug any USB flash memory.
This solution makes the system totally free form the computer, at the end of the track day you will just need to plug the USB pendrive and ATHON will download the acquired data that will be then analyzed directly into the software Digirace-MMX.
12) SUPPLIED WITH THE DIGIRACEMMX SOFTWARE:
the DigiRace-MMX software supplied with ATHON XS can file, analyse and print the data acquired and graphically represent the paths you have driven across with the relative acceleration and deceleration points for a lap-by-lap comparison.
13) 999-LAP MEMORY WITH AUTOMATIC MANAGEMENT OF 99 TEST SESSIONS:
ATHON XS will automatically create a new session whenever you access the track. This means that you can analyse the times you have stored during the various sessions even at the end of the day without having to delete memory whenever you access the track. You can store the Date and Time of every single session as well as the total time, the intermediates, the maximum speed, the max. engine revolutions and the engine speed at the max. speed for every single lap.
14) CYCLICAL MEMORY MANAGEMENT:
With ATHON XS you will never face memory full issues because,in order to allow a continuous usage, it manages the available space by erasing automatically the oldest sessions when the memory is almost full.
15) STORAGE OF THE FINISH LINE COORDINATES OF THE TRACKS MOST USED:
you can store the coordinates acquired for the finish line of the tracks you are training on most frequently. You can file up to 16 tracks and easily call the finish line of the current track without having to reset it every time.
16) ATHON IS COMPLETE WITH A BACKLIT LARGE-SIZE GRAPHICAL DISPLAY:
this solution has provided for the development of a software unit that can analyse all stored data and set up all wished functions in an unequally user-friendly and immediate manner. The display is of a transflective type, which means maximum visibility also in the sunlight when backlighting is off.
17) EXTERNAL SUPPLY:
supplied by 12V vehicle battery or by optional cases for 9V batteries or optional batteries. Moreover, ATHON XS is complete with powerful energy saving and self power-off functions the user can set up to make the best use of battery performance. It is supplied with a specific extension with eyelets for battery connection and with a connector on one side of the instrument for rapid disconnection.
ATHON is water resistant and it can also be used in case of rain.
