What Is V-NET Technology
Racepak’s Vehicle Network (V-Net) is a “smart data” transfer network providing the ability to transmit multiple signals from each sensor over a single cable. This technology creates a system in which the individual components interact with each other; making a simpler, more compact system which can be expanded with ease.
The key to accomplishing this is in the modular connectors that attach each of the devices to the main V-Net cable. Each module is essentially a miniature computer, which houses circuit boards and a microprocessor that identifies and retrieves only the proper incoming signals and allows other signals to pass through. Please click on the sample layout (right) to view a typical V-Net system, including proper use of extension cables, T-cables and V-Net bulkhead connectors.
Whether you will be installing a simple display dash set up, or a full-blown data acquisition system, all components are attached to the system using the modular snap-together connectors. Adding components onto the system is simple. Just find a junction in the main V-Net cable, separate the connectors, and sandwich the new sensor’s module between them. Then command your software to read the new configuration. It will automatically recognize any additions or deletions from the system.
Racepak’s digital display dashes is another strength of the V-Net system. Some dash models will rely solely upon the data logger’s sensors to provide the information they display, while others are stand-alone requiring no data logger. When you add Datalink II, the best Windows®-based software in the business, you will see why Racepak continues to be the most popular and widely used data acquisition system in the industry.
In order for a function to be monitored on the V-Net, the signal from that function must pass through two components: a sensor and a module. The sensor is the unit that actually measures the input from the function (i.e. pressure, temperature, etc.), while the module converts the signal so it can be transmitted over the V-Net. In the module sensor section that follows, you will find a complete listing of these components divided into categories.
Programming Racepak To Record Off Of Engine RPM| 07/03/2019
Many people, in the heat of the racing moment, unfortunately, forget one integral part of the runs process. That is pressing the record button for your data logger, causing you to miss out on the all-important run data. Follow along as Racepak's Cameron Ferre shows you a quick programming change that will allow you to eliminate the record button and start the recording via engine RPM.
How to flip Racepak G-Meters| 06/18/2019
When mounting a Racepak data logger there are specific mounting instructions that are needed to be followed in order for proper G-Meter readings. But what if those mounting instructions won't work in your application?

It even has a scramble-up and scramble-down feature that will allow Rodacker to pick up an extra 200 horsepower anytime he wants it with the push of a button and let him conserve resources when he feels he can get away with it by hitting a button to drop 200 HP. It makes up to 1,200 horsepower – watch!
