eMod017 / Adaptronic Modular plug-in ECU - Mazda MX5 NB8B/C

1 item left

This product is one of Adaptonic’s plug-in ECUs for MX5 Miata NB8B and NB8C.

Our main objective in creating the Adaptronic Modular ECU line is to work towards Adaptronic’s mission which is to give people control. In doing this, we came up with a system which would give people greater flexibility and at the same time, overcome the limitations of our main product line, the Select ECU.

 

What's in the box?

 

  • Engine control unit
  • USB (tuning) cable
  • Vacuum hose
  • 1GB USB Stick
  • Key ring
  • Adaptronic stickers

 

General Features

 

  • Modular system, so that people can buy hardware upgrades later as their needs develop (eg additional inputs, outputs, or specific functions, eg drive by wire or built-in lambda)
  • Wireless communication
  • Fast USB communication, requiring no drivers
  • Headphone port for listening to the knock sensor while tuning
  • 4 x serial ports
  • 1 x CAN port
  • Power over USB to do loading of maps, firmware etc without having to provide it with 12V power
  • 32MB of onboard logging to flash
  • Exception logging, able to detect faults and log a bunch of things that happen around the same time to help with ECU setup and tech support
  • Bigger maps, more of them, and more dedicated maps.
  • Tested to MIL-STD-202G, a military vibration standard, which varies the frequency and peaks at 7.5g of oscillating acceleration
