Defi-Link Display.


Defi-Link Display is a multipurpose monitor which provides information on speed, oil temperature, water temperature, oil pressure, fuel pressure, and exhaust temperature by connecting to the Defi-Link Control Unit II or the Defi-Link Control Unit(end of sale).


Defi-Link Display can be connected to Defi-Link Meters and Defi-Link Meter BFs by using the DAISY CHAIN wiring system.







The display uses OLED(organic light emitting diode).

OLED is an advanced display which is self light emissive, high contrast, high response, low power consumptive, and large view angle. It uses optimal technology for instant readability without afterimages of flicker even when seen from the passenger's seat.


Real-time digital information includes speed, oil temperature, water temperature, oil pressure, fuel pressure and exhaust temperature. Sensor sets need to be purchased separately to display the information on pressures and temperatures.


Vehicle performance data and peak values are placed in memory for 3 minutes, allowing examination of data after running the vehicle.


*Defi-Link Control Unit II has a 3 minute memory. Defi-Link Control Unit has a 40 second memory.


When the RPM signal wire is connected to Defi-Link Control Unit II or Defi-Link Control Unit, 2 warning levels can be set in addition to the warning setting made by Control Unit II or Control Unit, enabling the setting of a total of 3 warning levels(Tachometer Triple Warning Mode).


When the water temperature sensor is connected, the warm-up condition can be monitored.


A graphic animation plays after the ignition is turned on or off(Opening Mode/Ending Mode).


An easily recognizable graphic on each setting screen helps guide easy setting of warnings for Defi-Link Meters and Step Graph(Setting Assistance function).


The Warning LED lights when the set warning value is exceeded for oil temperature, water temperature, exhaust temperature and engine RPM. The Warning LED lights when measured value drops below the set warning value for oil pressure and fuel pressure.


Trouble locations are shown by graphics so that connection problems can be quickly corrected(Self-Diagnosis function).


The structure of the mounting base allows height and angle adjustment so that it can match the shape of the instrument panel.

The Defi-Link Indicator(sold separately) can be connected to the display.


Defi-Link Control Unit II or Defi-Link Control Unit(end of sale) is necessary to operate Defi-Link Display.


Pros :- Will replace all the DEfi Range of gauages with one convienient Display

Cons :- Requires defi link system and Guage sensors

14. Powerful PC analysis software included (PLX Logger Version 2.1+ Free Download)

15. Field firmware upgradeable (more features added to R-500 regularly)


External Sensors


R-500 is capable of connecting to 3 external sensors. 1) Wideband oxygen sensor (Bosch or NTK) for accurate air/fuel ratio measurements. 2) K-Type thermal coupler for exhaust gas temperature measurements. 3) Knock sensor for knock volts and audible knock detection. This gives you the capability of actually "listening" to your knock sensor with headphones to detect ping, or signs of premature detonation.


Data Logger Inputs


The R-500 features a built-in 6 input (2 speed, 4 analog) data logger with 90 minutes of on board memory. The 2 speed inputs can be connected to any signal which gives a pulse (Freq Range: 0Hz-10KHz) and the 4 analog inputs can be connected to any signal which gives a voltage between 0-5V. Analog voltages between 5V-25V will be capped at 5V and will not damage the data logger. This gives the user absolute freedom to interface with various signals to and from your ECU.


Here are a few examples of signals that can be logged by the R-500

Vehicle Speed (MPH/Kmh) Ignition Pulse (RPM) Shaft Speed Sensors

Throttle Position (TPS) MAP Mass Air Flow Sensor Brake Signal

Air Intake Temp (AIT) Engine Coolant Temp (ECT) Exhaust Gas Temp (EGT) PLX Wideband Air/Fuel Ratio

Knock Sensor PLX G Sensor

Blue - Speed Signal Red - Analog Signal


Pros : Top end of the wideband market which packs a punch. Quality datalogging functions and software.


Cons : Pricey compared to other wideband systems

Name: Apexi XL





The EL II System Meters are the newest addition to the EL Meters lineup. The 60mm System Meters utilize a main control unit which constantly monitors the movement of all of the gauges. The control unit can activate the memory replay, warning, and peak hold functions with just one touch. The synchronized memory playback function was designed exclusively so that drivers did not need to individually start each meter before a race. A high speed CPU processor ensures accurate monitoring every time.


The main control unit can accommodate up to 6 meters. This gives the user unprecedented flexibility to decide what type of meter to add and how many. All meters come with a multi angle stand to allow easy reading from any vantage point. Since the main processor is not inside of the meter itself, A'PEXi engineers were able to slim down the meter casing so that it can be mounted virtually anywhere inside the cabin.


The high speed control unit processor also eliminates excess wires between the meter and unit. The EL backlit face uses a fresh new design that is easy to read.

The MXL Strada makes a statement on any street bike or performance street car -- anywhere you need style, accuracy, and reliability without the cost or complexity of a full data logging system.


The MXL Strada is a digital dash and gauge, featuring a tachometer, RPM input, 8 analog inputs, 1 speed input, CAN/serial ECU connector, gear position indicator (sampled or calculated), and lap timer. The MXL Strada stores lap time data for on-board replay.


With standard features including a wide, fully configurable display, six configurable alarm LED’s, and backlight, the MXL is a stylish, powerful display for performance vehicles.


Street Smarts


The MXL can be interfaced (via CAN or RS-232 serial) with a variety of vehicle ECU's (engine control units) including MoTec, Pectel, DTA, MBE, EFI, Seat, Autronic, Bosch, Racetech and Carmo. Or use the AMP connector and deploy a powerful array of sensors on your vehicle, including pressure, temperature, throttle, steering, suspension, speed, Lambda sond, and more.


Science over Superstition


Connect sensors to the MXL and it samples and displays data from those sensors. For example, you can connect a wheel speed sensor and get continuous reads on your speed as you drive. AiM Sports uses sophisticated data acquisition technologies in the MXL to make this process fast, accurate, reliable, and cost-effective.


Unlock the Power


Connect the MXL to your vehicle’s ECU and unleash the MXL’s true power: sampling and displaying dozens of channels straight from the vehicle’s nerve center, including specialized sensors built into the vehicle. This is often the quickest and easiest setup, needing only 1 cable connection to the ECU instead of multiple connections to analog sensors, yet it yields the most dramatic results. In addition - you can leverage your aftermarket ECU investment.


The MXL uses state of the art algorithms to sample, calculate and display RPM, lap time, gear position, speed, temperatures and more. The MXL Strada stores lap time data for on-board replay.


Read on to learn more about the MXL Strada's features.


Need even more power?


All of the features mentioned above come with the MXL Strada model. The MXL Pista model adds on 8 MB of memory for hours of data logging. With data logging, you can download the logged data to your PC for analysis. Compare different vehicle setups, tracks - even different drivers - and get the most from your practice sessions. Look back through detailed race day logs to identify winning performance techniques - or, learn from less than stellar performances. In addition, the MXL Pista features a built in G-sensor (accelerometer) for creating track maps.


For the high-end, engineering-minded driver or technician, the MXL Pro model has all of the Pista features and adds on 2 Deutsch connectors, a total of 4 speed inputs, a total of 16 MB of memory, a total of 12 analog inputs, and CAN protocol for expansion modules.

I like that D200 :drool:




I'm not sure the D200 can be used with any supra's though for some of the more advanced features. It mentions RS232 support, so this MAY be compatiable with MOTEC/AEM. Would be worth checking it out.


The common protocols for this unit are CAN-bus or OBDII. Ian, my maplin project is going to support CAN bus :p

The Super Sports Cluster is £1000+ :faint:


Does this replace the stock cluster or is it just a gauge set to stick somewhere else? (e.g. top glove box etc)

It's a pity there isn't a complete replacement for the stock cluster - it really is one of the weak points of the interior in terms of aged looks.
