The C185 is a stunning full colour display combined with a powerful, professional level data logger. It comes standard with 250 MB internal logging memory and MoTeC's world-renowned i2 data analysis software. For more advanced data analysis, a Pro Analysis option is available.

C185s now offer the convenience and flexibility of USB Logging, an optional upgrade that can be enabled in the field at any time. This upgrade also increases the internal memory to 500 MB. In addition, recently built models provide three composite video inputs for a live camera feed on the display screen.*

The vivid 125mm screen (approx 5") is high resolution, ultra bright and anti-reflective for easy reading in direct sunlight. Choose from numerous selectable layouts and configure the channels and labels to suit, or opt for the Display Creator upgrade and treat your screen as a blank canvas with unique graphics, images, logos and custom icons. Create multiple pages to suit different scenarios, optimising the screen space for your application.

An array of ten full colour LEDs is integrated into the unit for use as shift lights, warning lights or other driver alerts. The colour, function and intensity of each LED is programmable, allowing users to develop their own unique strategies and sequences.

*Note: USB Logging and Live Video are recently added features that may not be available on devices already purchased. Compatible hardware can be identified by a mini USB port on the back of the unit. Earlier models without a USB port may be compatible but this functionality cannot be guaranteed.




For full customisation of the display layout and graphics, add the Display Creator option.
