Lean power cut
Lean power cut enable
Built in safety function to prevent engine from running lean.
RPM, boost pressure (MAP), TPS and lambda values can be changed to achieve the desired effect on cut level.
Use this function with precautions as it might be difficult for a driver to handle loss of power during high speed racing.
Note: Requires a wide band sensor connected to MaxxECU
Specifies the MAP value engine must exceed in order to activate this function.
Specifies the minimum RPM to activate this function.
Specifies the minimum TPS to activate this function.
•Fixed value - A fixed value (max lambda) which specifies the highest lambda, does not pay attention to the lambda target table at all.
•Lambda table - The cut threshold (max lambda deviation) from the lambda target table + this value. (if the lambda is to far away from the lambda target table, cut the engine to prevent damage).
Note: Lambda target table+deviation = cut threshold.
Soft cut enable
Enable or disable the soft cut function.
When enabled MaxxECU will "soft cut" (misfire) before completely shut down the engine.
Time before soft cut
Time before soft cut is enabled.
Should be lower than Time before cut below because lambda value needs time to stabilize.
Recommended value is 0.5 sec.
Total power cut
Time before cut
Specifies the time frame before MaxxECU will cut the engine completely.
Do not use to low values because lambda needs time to stabilize.
Recommended values: 0.5 - 1.0 sec.
•Below fixed TPS
•Below fixed TPS or throttle change %
reactivate below TPS
Specifies the TPS opening to reactivate this safety function.
reactivate TPS delta
% change in TPS (from where the error occurred) to reactivate this function.
In the above example the lean power function will start to misfire after 0.4 seconds when boost is more than 0.8bar (180kPa), engine rpm is more than 4000 RPM, Throttle position is over 80% and the lambda value is leaner than lambda 0.92. If driver has not released throttle after 1 second, total power cut occurs.
1. Set up your target lambda in tuning --> lambda table. (The marked area where we are about to pay some attention in this example).
2. Head over to Limits --> Lean power cut. Enable the function and set your activation conditions to suit your need.
3. Change the threshold source to lambda table and enter a max lambda deviation value to suit your need.
In the above example, our lambda target (marked cells in step 1 is lambda 0.84). The lean power cut function will activate when the lambda reads higher than 0.88 in this example.
