The Life Racing D8 Dash is an 8” Full Colour Sunlight readable WVGA display with 8 RGB high brightness ‘shift’ LEDs, 6 RGB general purpose / warning LEDs as well as 10 general purpose analogue inputs for sensors, 6 switch inputs and 4 outputs. 2 flexible CAN2.0B ports, RS232, twin Ethernet ports and real time maths operations allow it to be used as a fully featured central hub for a single connection point.

The D8 can log all channels (physical, CAN and maths) to USB at individually configured logging rates or alternatively stream the logged data from LR ECUs (F88, F90, etc). The D8 can be configured using PC software or by an external keypad controller. This allows custom layouts, easy page navigation and programmable driver aids, warnings and alarms. All functions can be simulated in software or by the playback of data files (.LRD) before programming.
