Watch Your Data in Pre-Configured Pages

The MXS 1.2 Strada has a high contrast TFT display and its visual quality is always optimal, as its ambient light sensor keeps the backlight at the best brightness levels. The dash is available in the “Street Icons” version needed by street users (fuel, oil, water temp etc.)

Flexible Shift Lights and Alarms

The ten multicolored RGB shift lights on the MXS 1.2 Strada can be customized to your liking to define the RPM threshold for each single gear. The same flexibility applies to the configurable RGB alarm LEDs. You can configure them in order to turn them on/off depending on analog or digital inputs, ECU values, expansion values, math channels or, optionally, GPS information. You choose conditions and colors and you can select a solid alarm or flashing one and the flashing frequency. It is also possible to configure an accompanying text message along with the alarm priorities.

Fitting

Simple Installation

We have tried to make the installation as simple as possible. The Dash requires power & earth and connecting to the ViM Module. The module has to be connected to your existing Indicators, Lights, etc. using the supplied simple wiring loom. Probably the most complicated part is then using a Multimeter to measure relevant signals to set up items such as your fuel gauge. And that’s it!

Once the dash is mounted in the vehicle (fixing brackets are available) if you prefer, any qualified auto electrician will be able connect it all for you within a day, making the IVA Approved Kit Car Dash Kit a complete solution for Kit Car and Road-Based Vehicle Builders who need a fully IVA compliant Dash Display for their build. Together with the included pre-configured, simple wiring loom the ‘ViM Kit’ offers a highly cost effective legal solution for a digital display in your vehicle.

Customisable Display

Just like modern luxury cars you can choose the Dash display style, from classic round dials to fully digital readouts. Pre-configured layouts of different styles and colours ensure that the Dash is easily configurable using our free RaceStudio 3 software.
You can even switch between the different layouts at any time using the push buttons on the side of the Strada. If the Dash is too far away or you have mounted the display flush into your dashboard, extension cables are available to extend the buttons within easy reach.

The support site includes over 1,000 different ECU’s both Stock and Racing. They are sorted by manufacturer/vehicle model and for each ECU you find the proprietary communication protocols, including the standard OBDII ones. From a hardware point of view, Aim systems manage the following data lines:

  • CAN
  • RS232
  • K-Line

 

MXS Strada Analog Digital Inputs

Aim systems analogue inputs are recorded up to 1,000 times per second each. You can connect and monitor all kinds of sensors, like:

  • Ratiometric potentiometers
  • Pressure sensors
  • Thermo-resistances
  • K-type thermocouples

and many others, all your custom sensors included

MXS Strada Analog Digital Inputs

Aim systems also feature digital inputs:

  • Speed signals – From the ECU, from the GPS and from the wheel sensors.
  • RPM – From the ECU or from a digital input connected to a square wave signal (8 to 50 V) or to a low voltage (from 150 to 400 V) of the coil.
  • Lap signal – Lap and split times are sampled by the GPS or via optical receiver/transmitter
