Hardware – Firmware & Software Options
PCM-Win® | In-Depth Analysis Software

PCM-Win, the advanced analysis and device configuration software, is actually the backbone of the system that provides all the necessary insights for performance and reliability improvements.

Complete Log-file Overview

View complete log-files & easily select specific sections
for additional analysis

File Comparison

Overlaid comparison of two different log-files with
adjustable file alignment

Absolute Combustion Pressure Correction

Since combustion pressure sensors provide arelative output, the recorded combustion pres. data has to be corrected to an absolute reference. The PCM-WIN provides all 3 known correction options: i. reference to measured manifold pressure, ii. reference to a fixed pressure, iii. compression pressure curve fitting to a polytropic index

3D Maps wit Freely Selectable Axis

Select more than 60 parameters andform 3D datamaps
that visualise logged data effectively.Then use the advanced
filters to focus on those datapoints for the required tuning

Advanced Data Filtering Options

Apply advanced filters and enhance comprehension of
displayed data. Narrow your focus to those data regions that
are necessary for your project in hand

Data Presets for Easy Inferencing

Knock Index, Ignition, Power, Power vs Knock, etc
Analysis of Every Single Combustion Cycle

View combustion pressure vs crank angle from all cylinders and examine combustion parameters cycle per cycle

Alternative Views of the Combustion Cycles

View combustion pressure vs cylinder volume and examine the low pressure region of each cycle with options for valve overlap, exhaust expansion and loop areas
