The VBOX Touch from Racelogic is the first in a new generation of highly flexible, GNSS dataloggers using the very latest technology available.
The powerful hardware can be used in various automotive tests such as acceleration, braking, speed verification, tire temperature monitoring, lap-timing and durability, among others. The VBOX Touch comes pre-loaded with a sophisticated performance application that covers many common use cases. Other applications can be downloaded free of charge from Racelogic’s online library. Racelogic can also write custom scripts based on the user’s requirements.
The VBOX Touch has a daylight readable color touchscreen, 10Hz GNSS engine, wi-fi, Bluetooth, twin CAN ports, serial port, digital input and four multi-color LEDs. Applications are written in Python script, offering greater flexibility, as well as the potential for users to write code to solve their specific testing requirements. The VBOX Touch delivers a configurable, touchscreen display that can interact with two different CANbuses, log data, and know the precise position and speed of the vehicle while giving clear feedback to drivers.
A high-accuracy 2cm real-time kinematic (RTK) GPS version is also available, which uses the very latest dual-frequency GPS, GLONASS and Galileo signals to deliver class-leading accuracy, even under difficult conditions. These new signals significantly increase the RTK resilience near trees and tall buildings, providing very precise lap-timing, position triggers and trajectory maps in places where 2cm GPS has never been available before.
Founded in 1992, UK-based Racelogic has supplied the automotive industry with reliable and accurate GPS dataloggers for the past 18 years. In the development of the VBOX Touch, the company has created a powerful tool to help users deliver results faster and more accurately than ever before.
