  1. SENSOR ALIGNMENT TOOL OR TEMPLATE-THIN LEXAN OR MATERIAL THAT HAS SENSOR CUTOUTS IN A CIRCLE TO ALIGN EASIER.

    motorlyser has the test feature so why not provide a sensor tool to align these tiny sensors-that the factor doesnt take the time to align-and provide a tool with motolyser to do this when tunning motor

      • data save

        data from each motor saved to compare against other motors tested along with trackside features like track size gearing rollouts from motor data thats been already proven on track and key in results that will be used in other motor selection for better performance.

        • Ability To Put Motor Under A Load..

          Design The Motolyser To Have The Ability To Place The Motor Under A Load Similar To The Fantom And Turbo Dyno. The Motolyser Will Be Able To Give Torque And Efficiency Readouts.

          • Add the detail that is calculating the Magnetic Asymmetry

            Since the device is able to provide a "score" of Magnetic Asymmetry, it should be possible to display the strength of the Magnetic field on the device as well.

            • PC driven test. Step X percent motor every Y seconds. Log results in simple csv format for graphing (or graph in the tool)

              similar to allow data to be stored idea below, but the parameters driven by software. At the moment I have to take pictures or write values down. leaves the motor running longer than it needs to.

              • Please have a menu that indicates KV changes corresponding to timing changes.

                It is very useful to know the effect that timing increase/decrease has on motor KV, both for racers as well as for race control.

                    • Need to be able to use with hotter motors

                      I would like the Motolyser to be used with lower turn motors... When I try to use the motorlyser with my 2.5-3.0 turn motors I get error message.. I would like to use it with these motors....

                        • Allow data to be stored about the motor on the pc. print out motor facts and allow the user to add information:sensor, timing, shim, rotor

                          A small database that takes

                          Motor
                          Date of test
                          Timing
                          Sensor board
                          Rotor

                          Front the user and allows the data from the test session to be included

                          Print a PDF "facts" sheet.

                          • Maximum timing deviation figure

                            Add a maximum timing deviation figure in the timing advance menu. Faster to see if the sensor board is smooth or not.
                            For example: 25.5 23.0 21.5 = 4.0

                            • Remove/reduce decimals from "individual phase angle" page

                              I believe it will be easier to compare the phase angles if one did not have to "take in" the decimal as well.

                              • Fixed step speed intervals

                                When testing different motors it would be great to have fixed speed %.
                                25% 50% 75% 100%
