Traqmate offers an expansion port for logging additional digital and analog signals with the Traqmate system. The product, called Traqdata, provides 4 analog, 2 digital, and RPM inputs.
I primarily want to log RPM and oil pressure. I'll also add oil temp and volts since I already have aftermarket gauges and therefore clean sources for these.
The only problem is the damn thing costs $129+shipping.
As you can see from the picture, it appears to be a terminal board connected to a low-density DB-15 connector. The LD DB-15 is not a very common connector type. It has the same number of pins as high-density DB-15 VGA connector but in two rows instead of three. I think the LD DB-15 was used for PC gaming adapters back in the day.
I'm wondering if buying a 10 ft. LD DB-15 cable and a small terminal board would work instead. It would cost about $10, look a lot cleaner and allow me to run the cable from the transmission tunnel near the rear seat where my Traqmate is mounted to the dash area where everything to be monitored is located.
I think I start playing with the input pins this week to see if I can understand what the pin-out is for this is.
Allow me to explain why most comments you read about the Singapore start are wrong... - Hi, I'm back. I had to jump in, for what it's worth, to explain why the response to the first lap crash at the Singapore GP was an even bigger clusterfu...
