Karting's favourite system just got better.
The all new MyChron5 S is our latest game changing data logger for Kart Racing.
The GPS frequency has improved from 10 to 25 Hz and the precision accuracy has improved from about 5 feet to 2 (1.5 m to 45 cm in average).
Below are a couple of screenshots that may explain the improvement: in blue and yellow the comparison between the "old" MyChron5 and the new MyChron5S GPS precision. As you see, the precision dramatically improves passing from 1.5 m to 0.5 m.
In the following picture below you will appreciate the improvement we have made, passing from 10 to 25 data per seconds. The yellow dots show the new GPS data.
Redesigned Wi-Fi Module: a new firmware is under test for improving the baud rate. The data download will be 5 times faster.
Empowered processor. The new one is the same we already have on the higher range of our products, 2 times faster than the MyChron5 one and with much more memory: we have a lot of firmware features just waiting for more internal memory for being developed.
Different Inertial Platform, at 9 axes. This will help with the development of many useful math channels.
To maximise readability of data, you need plenty of room.
That is why MyChron5S features a wide 268x128 pixel graphical display.
The screen can be backlit in one of the eight available colours.
The incorporated light sensor makes brightness and contrast ideal in all light conditions.
Lap and split times, best lap, RPM, gear number, track map and much more are shown in pre-configured pages: you will be able to choose the page layout you prefer to better monitor your data.
At the end of your session, you can recall the summary of your three best laps: lap time, max/min RPM, speed and temperature. For your best lap, you will also see splits and best theoretical time.
At home, using the charger included in the kit.
On track, using the proper charger*: in this case, you do not need to remove it from the gauge.
Just use the external power cable*.
The lithium battery can be removed when not used and the aluminum cover will protect the power connectors to the external power cable. External Power Cable is available here from our online store
MyChron5S features five individually configurable RGB LEDs: you can choose colour and value thresholds for their activation. In addition, they can be configured to show your best lap/split time, monitor RPM level and even signal the right moment for gear shift.
You can configure alarm LEDs as well, in order to turn them on/off depending on the values you selected: water temperature or any other parameter you may need.
At the end of each session, your data can be downloaded and analysed in depth on your PC with Race Studio 3 software: charts, graphs and histograms will help you to understand your performance and finding out what needs to be improved.
A glass fiber reinforced Nylon body along with metal buttons and anti-scratch non-reflecting polycarbonate display guarantee MyChron5S top resistance to shocks and adverse weather conditions.
