Another step in the evolution of our MyChron, which history started 25 years ago!
MyChron5S is the latest version of the game changer datalogger, precisely designed for kart racing.
There are four big differences between MyChron5 and MyChron5S, one of which is interesting just now while the others will be important soon.
- 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 approximately).
Here down a couple of screenshots that may explain the improvements: 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 next picture, you may appreciate the improvement we have, passing from 10 to 25 data per second. Here too, the yellow dots show the new GPS data.
The other new characteristics are:
- Redesigned Wi-Fi Module: a new firmware is under test for improving the baud rate. The data download will be 5 times faster.
- More powerful processor. The new one is the same we already had on our top range products: 2 times faster than the MyChron5 one and with much more memory; a lot of firmware features are only waiting for more internal memory for being developed.
- Different inertial platform: at 9 axes. This will help us in the development of many useful math channels.
From here on, the characteristics that make MyChron5S a point of reference for the world of karting.
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 backlited in one of the eight available colors.
The incorporated light sensor makes brightness and contrast ideal in all light conditions.
Choose optimal layout for your data
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.
Is it your best lap or do you need to shift? Multifunctional LEDs will tell you
MyChron5S features five individually configurable RGB LEDs: you will choose color 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.
Monitor water temperature or any other parameter with configurable alarm LEDs
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.
Wireless data download with Wi-Fi connection
MyChron5S offers the opportunity to download the data wirelessly, using an easy and safe Wi-Fi connection: no data key or PC connection are needed anymore. Wi-Fi data transfer is easily configurable via PC or keyboard.
In case of a connection of more than one gauge/PC (a typical situation in a team)
it is possible to transfer data to/from all MyChron5S devices and PC's at the same time.
In this case you would need to buy an access point, which will act as a bridge between the gauges and the PC's.
External power or battery charge?
MyChron5s expansions and add-ons
Race Studio 3:
the best tool to understand how to go faster
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, finding out what needs to be improved.
A simply indestructible chassis
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.
