16. Data Recorder (4) Version 3.11

16.1 OVERVIEW (4)

Operating suggestions for Data Recorder


Operating suggestions
1 Once trigger conditions are set up on the VCI for a particular vehicle, capturing data is possible even if the VCI is disconnected
then reconnected to the vehicle. However, it is impossible to use the same trigger conditions to capture data from another vehicle,
even if it is same model or same spec.
2 If multiple systems are selected, the sampling rate might be slow. The minimum necessary systems should be selected.
3 Captured data is saved on the VCIs SD card. There is limited capacity. The number of maximum number of storable data captures
is related to the number of selected systems and selected parameters (probably a few hundred). Data should be exported to PC
using the procedure shown in section 16.2 then deleted from the VCI. Once maximum capacity has been reached, the VCI is in
error state and cannot capture data anymore.
4 It is not possible to export configured trigger conditions to the VCI over wireless communication.
5 If a long recording duration has been set there may be a delay of several seconds or more between the audible beep at completion
of data recording and the completion of data saving.
6 The VCI/Data Recorder may not work correctly when a long trigger press is performed when the IG switch is off. In such cases,
turn the IG switch ON, then reboot the VCI by disconnecting then reconnecting the DLC cable (keeping the IG switch ON).
7 The counter of maximum recording number (refer to section 16.2) will be reset to zero when the VCI is powered off by
disconnecting the DLC cable. If VCI operation is resumed by reconnecting the DLC cable, the actual maximum recording number
will be the total of the number of recording before powering-off and the number of maximum recording number that was set.
(Example: If a user sets the maximum recording number to 2 and the recorded number of recording before powering off was 1,
then the actual recorded number will be 3.) For your information, data saved using the data recorder function will not be deleted by
disconnecting the DLC cable.
8 Note that the meaning of the error LED (red) varies depending on the blink interval. Long interval blinking (once per second) means
that data was stored in the VCI and it is normal behavior. Short interval blinking (3 times per second) means that VCI is not working
correctly. Detach the DLC cable from the VCI and reconnect it to VCI, then restart VCI.
