MG MGF Technical - MGF ī99 - speed transducer for EPAS?
|Iīm not quite sure on this one. Does my ī99 F uses (a.o.) a speed transducer PWM signal for itīs epas? Or was the PWM used only on later models?|
Obviously I checked dieterīs site and foudn this
The yellow-green wire supplies a square wave signal. it says. Dieter mentions different options dependant upong year of build. I guess the options just display different wire colours in use for this PWM signal?
couldn't get what you are after, but all MGF/TF used to need a speed signal for the EPAS.
Yours is (only) having a reed contact inside the speedo to get this signal.
ECD3 ECU equipped MGF and TF (electronic speedo) use a transducer.
|Aha, thanks dieter! It shows I was wrong.|
I was just wondering, with all those fancy electronics in a car, upto what extend aftermarket ECUīs can do all that. Youīd almost be obliged to run even an aftermarket as piggy back. Real shame actually. I noticed some ecuīs have PWM signal going out, so that could be of use. But mine doesnīt need that then. Good thing (letīs go back to the time of Webers;-) )
A reed contact is like what we use in bycicle trip speedometersand things like that, not?
Does a reed contact also give a PWM signal then?
|still confused with the short PWM :)|
Pulse width modulation ?
I'd not worry with any modulation or frequency or whatever :)
Main thing is that my sat nav equipment works with the on-off signal from the reed contact inside the speedo ;)
|yes Dieter, thatīs what PWM stands for. As I am not an electronics expert, I had a chat with my Google and wikepidia friends ;-D|
