EFI Technology Inc. has launched its new Level IV Data Logger System developed for the CART series and had a successful debut with Fernandez Racing.

Tom Anderson, team manager for Fernandez Racing, welcomes this opportunity: "Competition is good for the series and it is great to finally have an alternative supplier of data acquisition systems. The EFI System worked first time out and promises to be a key factor in our efforts this year. EFI is committed to an ongoing development and support program to help us win."

The EFI Level IV System incorporates many novel features, including internal configurable amplifiers for unlimited flexibility, and also provides the ability to perform on-board math operations, such as aerodynamic balance and weight transfer, in real time. The calculation of these parameters while the car is running is invaluable to the race engineers in order to optimize the car setup during the limited time available during practice sessions. Every lap counts and the EFI Data Logger System helps the race engineer make the right decisions fast.

Other key features include a new Steering Wheel Dash Display to improve driver instrumentation, a Tire Pressure System and high-speed telemetry data links to update the pit crew. One of the key advantages over other top-level systems is the ease of use of the software. The EFI Software offers great flexibility and capabilities without becoming a burden to the data engineer to setup and maintain. EFI has focused on developing advanced Data Analysis and Telemetry modules to deliver results without excessive complexity.

EFI Technology Inc, based in Torrance, Calif., has a championship-winning history and its systems are used in many series including Indy Racing League, Sportscar, Offroad Trucks, Offshore Powerboats and Superbikes. EFI designs, develops and manufactures all system hardware, software and harnesses in-house. A wide range of Engine Control units and Data Acquisition Systems provide customers with one-stop shopping for all their performance electronics.
