The revolutionary Performance Box from Racelogic is a powerful GPS based Performance meter.
Performance Box is the perfect tool for anybody wanting to accurately measure vehicle or driver performance.
More features for the price included than any other system available today. Even compared with systems costing more than three times as much, PerformanceBox comes out on top.
How can we provide so many amazing functions for such a low price?
The answer is because PerformanceBox is based on the VBOX by Racelogic. The VBOX is used by almost every motor manufacturer and tyre company in the world for testing and evaluation and costs many thousands of pounds.
Companies such as Ford, GM, BMW, Porsche, Ferrari, Goodyear and Michelin, all use the VBOX in test and development.
PerformanceBox uses many VBOX functions, allowing a professional level tool to be offered at retail prices.
How does it work ?
Housed inside the PerformanceBox is a high performance 10Hz GPS engine, which measures Speed, Postion, Acceleration and Heading ten times a second.
PeformanceBox is equipped with an MMC/SD Flash memory card socket. This allows 10Hz logging of Time, Distance, Speed, Position, G-force, Lap Times, and Split Times.
Racelogic are the market leaders in non-contact GPS Data Logging systems
PerformanceBox as a Data Logger
For drivers keen to improve their laptimes and get valuable feedback on technique, PerformanceBox includes a sophisticated, fully functioning Data-logging package. Dedicated data-loggers with similar features normally cost more than the PerformanceBox itself, so the inclusion of this feature is worth the purchase price alone!
To use the Data-logging, simply insert theﾠSD cardﾠand drive. Once you have finished the test, either plug the PerformanceBox into a PC via the USB cable provided, or remove the SD card and place it in a suitable reader.
The data is then read into the PerformanceTools software, which is installed from the CD supplied. This software allows graphical analysis of acceleration, braking, cornering and lap times. You can overlay up to four files, and you get an accurate track map to compare your driving line between different laps. Make no mistake, this is not just token data-logging, this is the real deal!
PerformanceBox as a Power Calculator
PerformanceBox can help you to measure the power developed by your car's engine, either at the wheels or flywheel. Having set the vehicle weight, results are calculated from the measurements taken by the fast GPS engine to give you useful guidelines to the car's brake horsepower or kilowatt output.
Because these calculations are made from the GPS data rather than accelerometers, your results are likely to be more consistent and accurate.
- Results in BHP or KW
- Measures acceleration to give instant power output at the wheels
- Losses runs are used to calculate power output at the flywheel
- Runs can be carried out in second gear at relatively low speeds
- An effective tool for those wishing to evaluate tuning modifications
There are two parts to the testing process: the acceleration run, which gives you the power at the wheels minus the losses caused by tyre and air resistance. The second part of the test measures these losses and also estimates gearbox losses. The Power Mode is also an additional tool for car tuning, where access to a chassis dynamometer is not possible.
Because PerformanceBox uses a fast GPS engine, it knows precisely where you are every 1/10th of a second. Using this information, it can compare your current position with a number of stored reference points and use this information to trigger a lap timer function and predictive lap timer for instant driver feedback.
Setting it up is very easy and only has to be done once. Just put PerformanceBox into setup mode, and drive over the point you wish to define as the start/finish line. This point is then converted into a line at 90 degrees to your direction of travel, and stored in the internal memory.
