04 VBOX Setup Overview

An overview of how to use the VBOX Setup Software to configure your VBOX 100 Hz Speed Sensor (v5).

This is a general overview of the VBOX Setup software, connected to the VBOX 100 Hz Speed Sensor (v5), and its functionality. You can use the VBOX Setup Software to configure your VBOX unit. It provides greater functionality in comparison to using the Front Panel.


To configure a VBOX Speed Sensor unit, it needs to be connected to a power source and a computer.

Configuration is performed using VBOX Setup Software, which can be downloaded here. Using the supplied loom, connect an RLCAB001 cable to the SERIAL lead and connect the serial plug to the computer's serial port – this can be done via a serial > USB converter if required.

Microsoft Windows 7 
SP1 or newer is required (must be compatible with .Net Framework 4.7.1)

Once physically connected and powered, open the software and use the drop-down list to select the correct COM port that your VBOX unit is connected to. VBOX Setup automatically connects to the selected device and enters the setup screen for your unit.
