Dear All & particularly dear “pre-ordees”! We are glad to inform you that we are getting closer to the 1st batch production of the new PLEX Knock Monitor® V3 and we really appreciate your patience.The quality targets we had set for the first pre-production unit have met all of our expectations and currently we are waiting for some delayed components to arrive (membrane keypad, usb cables and few other electronic components), but as we have nearly “locked” the final PCBs designs, we are very soon proceeding with their production on our P&P machine. In parallel, we are also finalizing the beta UI, of which you’ll get some previews on our website during the couple weeks.
We are trying hard to secure first shipments before the end of March but a more realistic scenario would be early April. We truly appreciate your patience & commit to deliver you a top-notch tool that will practically take your tuning to the next level.
As of tomorrow, March 15th 2022, launch pricing is adjusted to reflect the actual production and development costs. However, this increases will NOT affect those who have already pre-ordered or who will do so today March 14th! You can view detailed launch pricing on our website/e-shop
To remind you, the new PLEX Knock Monitor will be available in 2 variants, with and without knock sensors:
- “Basic” starting at
€949€999 excl. sensors
- “HD” (more advanced features) starting at
Both variants will provide significantly superior knock detection accuracy than the previous version and will also offer multi-channel CAN Bus USB datalogging as well. Along with the PLEX PDA-WIN® Data Analysis & Visualization software, one will be able to record both knock audio and data and study them in-depth on the PC in order to derive valuable inferences that will help him optimize his tune.
As the first teaser pre-production unit photos show, the new hardware is much more ergonomic, has a larger (colour TFT) screen and includes new M8 type connectors and improved wiring. V3 comes with the same knock sensor connectors, but with a new and vastly improved in terms of heat tolerance knock cables. Due to the AC coupled knock signal inputs, the new version will also be suitable to connect in parallel with the ECU OEM sensors. What will you be able to view/log?
