LEDs

The 4 LEDs at the top of the unit provide visual feedback dependent on what process is being performed. Multiple alerts can occur. The colour of the LED will indicate the event: 

Blue is an alert at speed 
Red is a parameter alert
Green is a configured test alert
 

  • On the Parameter screens
    • If you have set the Target Speed LED Alert, the LEDs will flash blue when it reaches the value.
    • If you have set the Parameter LED Alert, the LEDs will flash or appear solid red when the alert condition is met.
    • If you have enabled Alert at Start, the LEDs will flash green when the decel test start speed criteria are met.
    • If you have enabled Alert at Trigger, the LEDs will flash green when the decel test trigger test has started.
    • If you have enabled Alert at End, the LEDs will flash green when the decel test start speed criteria are met.
       
  • In the Parameter Settings menu:
    • If you have enabled Parameter LED Alert, the LEDs will preview the settings in red.
       
  • In the General Settings menu:
    • If you Save the Settings to an inserted SD card, the LEDs will flash green. If a settings file with the same name already exists on the SD card and you cancel the overwriting, the LEDs will briefly flash red.
    • If you Load Settings from an inserted SD card, the LEDs will flash green.
    • If you Reset the Session Data, the LEDs will flash green. If you cancel the reset, the LEDs will briefly flash red.

KF Status

If you enable IMU Integration in the connected VBOX 3i/3iS unit, MFD Touch will display the current IMU Kalman Filter status of that connected unit. The Kalman Filter Status Icon reflects the IMU LED on the VBOX 3i/3iS front panel. 

The icon has the following different statuses:

Solid orange indicates that IMU integration has been enabled but that the detected IMU is invalid. When you use an IMU04, make sure that it is; connected with an RLCAB119 to the 25-way D connector, is set to Racelogic CAN mode, and is running the latest release of the firmware. MFD Touch KF Orange.png Flashing green indicates that the initialisation is complete but that movement is not detected yet. MFD Touch KF Green.png
Flashing orange shows that the IMU is connected and that the integration initialisation is running. This will not complete until the VBOX 3i/3iS has had a satellite lock while being stationary for 30 seconds. MFD Touch KF Orange.png Solid green indicates that movement is detected and that the IMU integration is working. MFD Touch KF Green.png

Logging Status

Note: When using VBOX 3i units only

The Record icon shows the current logging status of the connected VBOX unit and reflects the LOG LED on the VBOX front panel.

When VBOX is logging data to the inserted CF card, the icon will be red. VBOX Touch Recording Button.png
When the unit is not logging data, the icon will be grey. MFD Touch Not Recording.png

When a CF card is detected and available within the VBOX (i.e. the CF Status icon is green), logging can also be controlled by pressing the Record Icon as per the VBOX front panel LOG Button. If 'Logging Beep' is enabled within the General Settings menu, the unit will make an audible alert signal when the logging state of the connected VBOX unit changes.
 

If the grey Record Icon is pressed when the VBOX has its log mode set to ‘Log when moving’ and the vehicle is stationary, the screen title will be briefly display an 'ARMED' status. This indicates that the recording media has been detected, and the unit is waiting for starting conditions to be met before logging commences. When logging commences, the Record Icon will display as red.
 

If you press the grey Record icon when the unit is not detecting a CF card  or if the media is full (i.e. the CF Status icon is red), the unit will emit an audible beep and display one of the following messages:

  • NO MEDIA AVAILABLE - No detected recordable media.
  • CARD FULL - Media detected but no logging capacity remains.
  • NO MEDIA AVAILABLE - VBOX 3i is unable to write to recordable media (i.e. corrupt card).

 

If MFD Touch cannot detect a VBOX unit, it will display a 'NO CAN' message in this area. A Logging Status channel is also available for selection as a text parameter which will describe the current logging status of the connected VBOX.

CF Status

Note: When using VBOX 3i units only

The CF Status Icon displays the status of the VBOX recording media.

When a CF card has been inserted into the VBOX and has free space, it will be green MFD Touch CF Logging.png
If it cannot detect a CF card, the media memory is full, or the VBOX unit is unable to write to the media (corrupt card), the icon will be red. MFD Touch CF Not Logging.png
If it cannot detect a VBOX unit, you will see a 'NO CAN' message displayed in this area. NO CAN

Screenshot

Selecting the Screenshot button will save an image of what you see displayed on the screen to the inserted SD card. If the screenshot saves successfully, the LEDs will illuminate yellow in sequence from left to right (the progress of writing to the SD card). You will hear an audible confirmation notification when the screen capture is complete. If you were unsuccessful in saving the screenshot (if you did not insert an SD card or the card was full), you see 'NO SD CARD' appear at the top of the screen. The LEDs will flash red 2 times and you will hear an audible error notification.

A captured image is saved as a 1.5 MB bitmap image, orientated at 90° to the original screen image, with the prefix 'screenshot'.
