High power, low cost in-cylinder pressure measurement and analysis

Combining the high speed analysis provided by the open source catool software with the industry leading data acquisition hardware of National Instruments, catoolRT provides a high power yet low cost method of using your existing combustion analysis and data acquisition hardware for cylinder pressure measurement.

Cylinder Pressure Analysis


catoolRT provides:
  • Cylinder pressure combustion analysis calculations in-line with AVL IndiCom
  • Encoderless 60-2 or 36-1 crank angle sensor operation - no need for an expensive encoder
  • Can be used without pressure transducers:
    - OEM type knock detection - replace "det cans" with proper filtered, windowed knock detection
    - Coil, Injector and camshaft analysis - reverse engineer "black box" PCM mapping
