Imagine to have a professional traction control system that works also as anti wheelie and launch control. Now imagine that this system is easy to use and very fast to install. Then add to this system a smart function to obtain a GPS laptimer with the same ECU. GRIPONE CHRONO TC is this! A sophisticate control system, with a high level of complexity inside but user friendly. By few parameters you can control the power of your bike and ride safety and fastest.
GRIPONE CHRONO TC is a programmable system “stand-alone” that operate as traction control, anti wheelie, launch control, shift-up flash and GPS laptimer (GPS module is optional). All the functions can work together or switched off separately.
It is connected to 2 speed sensors and to 1 coil (or injector) of the bike (by plug&play loom). In addition the unit can be connected to the (IMU) (Inertial Motion Unit) to benefit of 3D-Intelligence strategy’s and to external buttons to change the map from the handlebar. The IMU, thanks to three accelerometers is able to understand the position of the motorcycle, if it is accelerating or braking, the radius of curvature that the vehicle is making and more. The control unit processes all information and defines a level of “safe” slip beyond which intervenes limiting the power of engine.
CHRONO TC has two buttons (OPTION and MENU) through which you can configure the unit. You can access the menu (shown on the LCD) by pressing the MENU button. Press MENU button to scroll through all the configuration parameters, up to return to the main screen. For each parameter you can change its value by pressing the OPTION button.
If you ride your bike on race track, you can use GRIPONE CHRONO TC as laptimer and save your lap times and intermediate times into its memory. GRIPONE can record up to 200 laps. To activate this option you have to connect the GPS reciever to the ECU by the 3.5 jack.
GRIPONE CHRONO TC has a 5 red led (led bar) used for show how the control strategies are working. The led bar blink when traction control, anti wheelie or launch control strategy are working. The led bar switch on gradually (from the first to the fifth) to show the right moment to up-shift.
What includes the kit
The kit includes all you need to install the system on your bike. All our kits use “plug and play” harness with original connectors. IMU is not included into the kit but it is available as optional accessory.
PLEASE note that the brackets kit included is not plug&play. It is general propose for traditional swing arm
GRIPONE CHRONO TC can be installed on all motorcycles with electronic fuel injection. It is available as “plug&play” kits. Download the list of plug & play applications. For all other bikes not mentioned can be used universal loom.
How it works
GRIPONE CHRONO TC is an “stand alone” traction control system (that means it is additional to the original ECU).
The other traction control units base their calculation on the outdated concept of “sensitivity”: the user chooses a fixed level of sensitivity that determines the activation of the system and the reduction of power. This approach determines a compromise between the various curves (even when the sensitivity change by the angle of the bike).
GRIPONE CHRONO TC proposes a new concept called “target of safe slipping.” By the inertial platform (IMU)
it is able to understand the position of the bike and evaluate its dynamics. Through the accelerations along the three axes (X, Y and Z), the speeds of the wheels and their gradients, the control unit algorithm estimates a “safe target” (ie a skidding maximum beyond which it is necessary to reduce the power). 200 times per second the “safe target” is recalculated and updated. In this way, the sensitivity is continuously varied and optimized allowing greater safety and better performance.
Do not just change the sensitivity vary with the bending angle! At same angle the bike can accelerate, brake, increase or reduce the inclination angle. Can slide laterally or slip longitudinally.
