XDF status update
Added scalar editors for:
- Boost scalars (in previous xdfs)
- WGM scalars (in previous xdfs)
- MAF voltage limits (new)
- Gearbox valid ratios (new - should solve CC issues on a Manual Td5 with TC ratio swap )
- EU3 temperature guess (new - informational for turbo speed estimation)
I'm currently working on adding the MAF and AAP patches to the new XDF builder. If all goes to plan I'm hoping to get the v2.2 update on the site in next couple of days.
I've put in some dedicated effort on the XDF builder over the last couple of days and there has been a fair bit of progress.
The work has been mainly to do with the way the XDFs are built - but there should be some visible improvements in the XDFs as a result.
Things that have been improved include the consistency of axis naming and formatting.
The axis naming on graphs has been reduced to units only. Full naming of the axes now appears in the parameter comments panel and floating tips when you hover over the table name in the side bar.
Category tagging of the tables was added over the last couple of days and I got that working correctly today.
The main outstanding task now is adding the code to insert scalar editors. I still need to add in the MAF and AAP patches but that is lower priority at the moment.
There will be a few additional tables defined but the focus is on getting the main limiters defined for the EU3.
On the MSB front there will be separate XDF's for the second map. The previous strategy was based on the mistaken assumption the two maps had the same basic layout, which wasn't the case. I'm sure this good news for some of the donors who work with the MSB ROW maps.
Update (4 Sept 2019)
The core code for the Scalar editors is getting close to done but in the process I've found a bug with Tuner Pro that messes with the units when min and max values are set.
For the ADC min and max the range needs to be limited to a range of -1 to 1024. The bug causes the editor to start at zero, increase in value to 32767, then flip to -32767 and increase to -1 at the right end of the scale. This has been reported to Mark (TunerPro developer) so there will hopefully be a bug fix by the time the XDF's are ready.
The editors are showing a few of the minor changes that are coming. Sensor settings are now consolidated into physical units - MAP/IAT and AAT/AAP, FT and ECT.
Parameter editors have been include for IAT, AAT, FT and ECT. These new parameter editors are (imo) of very limited practical use so are mainly for informational purposes. I guess there are possibly situations where an alternative AAP/AAT sensor might be required/desired so this will allow for reconfiguration.
The ECT/FT editors expose a difference between MSB and NNN ECU's.
On MSB ECU's these sensors have separate ADC inputs.
The NNN multiplexes these two sensors to a single ADC input "mux". This means there is a single MUX scalar editor and changes impact both FT and ECT sensors.
