Brake Pedal Trigger

Precise measurement of brake pedal application during VBOX brake stop tests

The brake trigger event time capture is stored in internal memory and stamped into the VBO file to interpolate the speed between GPS samples which is the key component for a high accuracy brake stop distance calculation.

Brake Trigger Interface

The Racelogic brake trigger interface module it is possible to conduct brake stop tests without employing a traditional brake pedal trigger.

This is ideal if the vehicle is already installed with a brake pressure sensor and cannot therefore also use a brake pedal trigger.

The interface is connected to the vehicle's high 12V brake light system, and when the brakes are applied, converts it into an active low 0V signal which acts as a trigger event for the VBOX. Connection to the VBOX is via Lemo.

Hand-Held Brake Trigger/ Event Marker

Rugged and lightweight switch mainly used for event marking or to start tests where the placement of a light barrier is not viable.

The hand-held brake trigger is only active when the button is depressed.

Light Barrier Kit

The Racelogic Light Barrier kit (RLVBACS063) comprises of an optical sensor with power and trigger output connections, a Culman suction mount with a metal mounting plate for the optical sensor and a square plastic reflector plate.

The trigger cable from the light barrier unit connects directly with the trigger input of a VBOX and the power cable can connect to any of the 5 way lemo connectors on a VBOX to pickup power.

The kit is often employed in drive-by noise tests where volume output must be measured at exactly the same point in every instance.

Laser Light Barrier Kit

Consistent logging of event marking and triggers.

The Racelogic Laser Light Barrier kit (RLACS189) comprises of an optical sensor with power and trigger output connections, a Bohle suction mount with a metal mounting plate for the optical sensor and 2m of reflective tape.

Start/ Stop Logging Switch

Rugged and lightweight switch used for starting and stopping the data logging

The switch is a latching push switch that, when in the open position, starts the data logging and when in the closed position stops the data logging.

The latching feature eliminates the need for constant pressure to be applied to the switch, ensuring that the driver of the vehicle can keep two hands on the steering wheel.
