Displaying M800 IGN Channel Status

Postby HKS_TRD on Sun Oct 24, 2021 8:44 am

I have two of the IGN channels in the M800 configured as AUX outputs to control solenoids, is there any way to send the status of these AUX channels to the C127, I couldn't find them in the list of available channels to receive

Hi,

If you add those channels to a Custom Template in the M800 and then transmit that custom template to the Dash (you need to make some address changes if you also use the standard M800 Template) you can receive those channels into the Dash.

I must be doing something wrong as those channels aren't available for inclusion in a custom template

If you were using, say, ignition output 5, would the M800 channel Ign Out5 Duty Cycle not show you what you need?

Yes it would
I'll watch the custom data sets webinar and try again, when I went into the custom data sets setup in the M800 the ignition outputs weren't in the list of available channels

When you go to add channels in to custom data sets, have you ticked the "show non sensor channels" at the bottom of the dropdown menu box?

Not from memory, I'll check that tonight
Also, when I export the template where is it exported to I couldn't actually find it on my PC
