​2.0 INJECTION

The ECU can control both modes of injection: Saturated and Peak & Hold.

Peak and Hold - 16 x channels 

When using low impedance injectors (< 5 Ohms) the ECU uses a switch mode current limiting technique to minimise heat dissipation in the Injector. This gives better injector control and helps maximize injector life by lower its operating temperature.

Independently configurable Peak and Hold currents up to 16 cylinders
   - Max Peak current 8A
   - Max Hold current 2A
   - Current limited to 10A.
   - Flyback Voltage Clamp: 60V.


Saturated
Required when injector resistance is greater than 5 Ohms.
Current limited to 5A.
   - Flyback Voltage Clamp: 60V.

Auxiliary Fuel Mode
Unassigned Fuel channels can be used to switch or modulate resistive and inductive loads.
