Lambda sensor

 

lambda sensors

Specifies number of available lambda sensors in the system.

Single sensor - Mostly used on straight engines.

2 sensors.

 

Lambda sensor X

Specifies the lambda sensor to be used on this lambda channel.

None - No lambda sensor enabled in the system, a lot of features is not functioning without a wide band sensor, it is very advice able to have a sensor connected to the MaxxECU.

Internal wideband controller - A wideband sensor is wired to the MaxxECU. <-- preferable use this option, since the built-in wideband controller in MaxxECU is superior to anything on the market today.

MaxxECU CAN Lambda module, ID x - Support for the MaxxECU CAN WBO sensor, up to 8pcs extra on a single MaxxECU installation, see CAN Lambda Module Setup.

narrowband sensor - Support for narrowband sensor (do not use this type of sensor...)

External user defined analog external wideband controller - Brings up an calibration page to scale your own 0-5V lambda controller.

Note: MOTEC LTC/LTCD CAN LAMBDA: Motec LTC/LTCD internal diagnostics works with a delay so the error codes will not go away immediately, but 60s after fault is fixed. The Motec Fault bits are displayed in the RT-values "External sensor status 1/2"

 

 

User sensor setup

 

Only available when the above lambda sensor = External user defined analog external wideband controller.

 

Voltage point 1

Specifies the lowest voltage point from the controllers output signal.

 

lambda point 1

Specifies the lambda value at the lowest voltage point.

 

Voltage point 2

Specifies the highest voltage point from the controllers output signal.

 

lambda point 2

Specifies the lambda value at the highest voltage point.

 

 

dual bank cylinder assignment

 

cylinder x 02 sensor

Specifies which sensor is mounted on which cylinder side. Bank A is always on the cylinder 1 side.

 

 

internal wideband sensor

 

sensor type

LSU 4.2 - default and recommended sensor.

LSU 4.9 - Not as sustainable as the LSU 4.2 sensor.

 

sensor warmup

ECU startup - Started right after ECU is started (fastest option to get accurate lambda readings fast (10-15seconds)).

Engine startup - Wide band sensor heating is started during cranking (mostly used in some Plugin solution where the LSU is powered from an external source like OEM fuel pump relay).

Note: The WBO error detection is also using this setting.

 

calibration mode

default automatic calibration - MaxxECU reads the built-in resistor from factory to be used as calibration data. <-- recommended usage.

manual free air calibration - Manual way of calibrating the connected sensor (s), if you for some reason (like using an old and worn sensor) want to manually calibrate the sensor (s), see below.

 

 

free air calibration

 

Used to calibrate lambda sensor. Normally not used. MaxxECU will calibrate sensor automatically (when default automatic calibration option above is used), but this can be used to calibrate and old and worn sensor.

 

clip0711

Make sure the wide band sensor has not been exposed for exhaust gases the closest hour, have the sensor OUTSIDE of the exhaust and press the calibrate sensor button for the relevant sensor.

 

 

 

Examples

 

 

Internal wideband controller with an LSU 4.2 sensor

Note: Requires an wideband sensor wired to MaxxECU.

clip0716

1. Activate the GPO 8 as a internal lambda sensor heater (sensor 1).

 

clip0717

2. Activate the lambda sensor as internal wideband controller.

 

 

 

External wide band controller wired to AIN 3 (0-5V)

clip0712

1. Inputs --> AIN (0-5V), select lambda sensor bank A on the relevant analog input (AIN) 0-5V channel your external wide band controller is wired to.

 

clip0713

2. Inputs --> lambda sensor, select the external controller wired to the MaxxECU analog input. In the above example an Innovate LC-1 controller is used.

 

 

 

Dual wide band sensors wired to a MaxxECU PRO

Note: Requires two wideband sensors wired to MaxxECU.

clip0714

1. Activate the wired lambda heater outputs, as the internal lambda heaters (internal lambda sensor heater (sensor 1/2)).

 

clip0715

2. Enable the internal wideband controller, and the dual sensor mode as two sensors, bank mode (V-engine). Also set the sensor assignment to suit your engine.

 

 

 

External wide band controller wired to AIN 3 (0-5V) not found in the list of supported controllers

 

clip1153

1. Inputs --> AIN (0-5V), select lambda sensor bank A on the relevant analog input (AIN) 0-5V channel your external wide band controller is wired to.

 

 

clip1154

2. Inputs --> lambda sensor, select external user defined analog external wideband controller from the list, set voltage/lambda points according to your controllers data.
