The new PLEX Data Analysis Software® is one of the easiest, fastest and most versatile data analysis & visualisation solutions available that is meant to shape the way racers benefit from logged data by saving time & enabling smarter decision making. The PLEX PDA-WIN’s intuitive UI and customisation options helps one decipher complex engine, race, driver & tuning data by visualising it in easy to interpret & compare graphs, tables and other analysis components.
PRO version now available from €689 (excl. VAT)
Use the master file graph to quickly navigation to those file areas most relevant for the analysis. Easily generate configurable line graphs for single or multiple file comparison, with zoom levels & cursors that are synced with all other analysis panels/graphs hence allowing quick rescaling & cross referencing of data.
Use track maps to visualise the vehicle path and display data channel information along it. Display and compare different laps & sessions with the line mode or use the bars mode and add up to 2 data channels to visualise them along the vehicle path. For example, throttle position and brake pressure can be indicated with perpendicular bars clearly showing the driver inputs at each point on the track. An additional colour mode allows displaying a single channel with a configurable colour scale. All options can also be easily superimposed on satellite images.
Tuning maps are special cell graphs designed to provide information directly transferable to the ECU calibration maps. They are used to display A/F ratio, closed loop fuel trim or knock retard. The map break points can be configured to be the same as the breakpoints used in the ECU maps and the cell size can be reduced to allow only data points close to the cell centres to be displayed. Users can easily change the display mode between average, number of samples, range, minimum and maximum.
Histogram graphs display the frequency distribution of the the selected channel data. What’s the use? Looking at the time spent in each rpm range will indicate where in the range a performance increase would be more beneficial or it could indicate that a gearing change is required, whereas looking at the time spent in each throttle range might indicate inconsistent driving and ineffective use of the engine power. Alternatively, looking at suspension velocity histograms can help in determining the required spring and damping changes. These graphs use data from the currently selected part of the file and in comparison mode can show data from the whole laps/runs.
Additional types of display items, such as analog style gauges, status indication windows and time-stamped events lists are available for creating insightful custom analysis layouts that help one decipher logged data and generate performance improvements.
