RAPID TPM for Mercedes Benz A CLASS W177 – A NEW PLATFORM FOR CARS WITH TURBO-DIESEL AND TURBO-PETROL ENGINES
- A35 AMG 2.0L 16V TURBO 225kW/306HP MED17.7.7
Rapid TPM (Turbo Power Management) is DIMSPORT’s latest technological innovation. It is a new generation platform that is able to handle turbo-diesel and turbo-petrol engines. The new module is equipped with a microprocessor, FLASH EPROM and RAM EEPROM so as to gain full control of the relevant pressure sensors; these are also able to control some signals sent from the CAN-BUS line of the vehicle’s original electronic control units.
All Rapid modules were developed with a view to keeping unchanged the safety and protection features of the original engine control unit, such as the self-adapting functions of the vehicle’s electronic system and the monitoring of critical parameters relating to engine function. Some wirings are already designed to work with communication protocol SAE J2716 SENT.
THE WORLD OF TURBO-PETROL
The world of cars has evolved giving new space to supercharged Petrol engines, which are increasingly common in small to medium-sized vehicles. The approach chosen for Rapid TPM allows for customized engine function, by analyzing various signals such as airflow, intake manifold pressure, turbo pressure, and engine RPM.
The platform is linked directly to the sensors with plug&play wiring, which is specifically designed for each compatible vehicle.
In the case of turbo-diesel engines, Rapid TPM works with the signal sent by the rail pressure sensor in a simple and efficient way; in addition to this, the pressure in the intake manifold can also be altered in order to manage the turbo, using engine RPM as well as any additional signals that may have been sent from the CAN line as a reference.
ONE SINGLE MODULE FOR ALL APPLICATIONS
TPM modules are the same for all applications: The choice of Specific wiring and the writing of custom-made firmware using the TPM Software, allows for the creation of a customized kit for the required application, with the added benefit of standard calibration provided by DIMSPORT and a professional tool for even finer tuning of the vehicle in real-time.
Dimsport places more than 20 years of experience in the auxiliary modules sector at the disposal of its customers, and develops standard calibrations on its own test benches in order to provide the best possible balance between reliability and performance optimization, and vehicle efficiency. Our tests confirm that it is possible to obtain an increase in power and torque of 10-12% on average with LPE modules and 15-18% with XTI and TPM modules, taking full advantage of the potential offered by standard mechanical technologies. These are real values tested in the field and confirmed by over 100,000 installations worldwide, on cars, commercial vehicles, trucks, and tractors. Installers can increase these values further through customized calibrations, and by drawing on the support offered by specialist Dimsport technicians.
