03 - CAN Gateway Connection to VBOX Video HD2


CAN Gateway can be connected to VBOX Video HD2 via a RLCAB006 (included in package) in order to record data from a vehicle CAN Bus and a Racelogic module/Racelogic Tyre Temperature Sensors at the same time. If Racelogic Tyre Temperature Sensors are being used, it can either be connected to the VEHICLE or MODULE socket, dependent on whether a VCI or Racelogic module is/ isn't being used.

It also allows the connection of an OLED Predictive Laptiming Display.
