Universal AQ-1 Data Logger by AEM®. The AQ-1 Data Logger is the affordable, easy to install and easy to use way to acquire dynamic, accurate, vehicle data. The AQ-1 installs and sets up quickly, and reads live parameters from ancillary sensors, AEMnet enabled devices, GPS, and more, and puts them into a single log that’s easy to view on your laptop. This compact 4.8” x 4.55” x 1.44”, 10.4 oz. unit comes with intuitive software, a set-up wizard and sensor library to simplify the set-up process, and it interfaces with a laptop via USB connection. The kit includes the data logger module with 2GB SD card (supports cards up to 32GB), dust cover, mounting hardware, USB cable, and instructions.
Traditionally, data loggers were very expensive and difficult to install, often requiring costly software upgrades and supplementary components. To give racers and enthusiasts an affordable way to record, download, and analyze vehicle data, AEM developed the AQ-1 Data Logger. This feature packed unit installs easily, reads live parameters from sensors, AEMnet enabled devices, GPS, and more, and puts them in a single log that’s easy to view, all for far less than most other data loggers.
Even though it’s comparatively inexpensive, the AQ-1 is one of the fastest data loggers on the market, with logging rates of 1000 samples/second per channel. It has 2GB of logging memory standard, and a removable SD card with the capability to support cards up to 32GB. It also includes an internal 3-axis accelerometer, an RS-232 serial input for a NMEA GPS device (for track mapping), and an AEMnet connection for easy connection to AEMnet devices like the Series 2 EMS, EMS-4 EMS, and 4-Channel Wideband UEGO Controller.
The AQ-1 can accept 4 analog inputs that can optionally measure frequency (0-5V, 0-16V), including RPM, vehicle speed, frequency based MAF, injector duty cycle, boost control solenoid, flow sensor, hall sensor, and any 3-wire pressure sensor. It can accept four 0-5V analog inputs with optional pull-up resistor for RTD/thermistor-style sensors, including AEM gauges, MAP/pressure sensors, TPS/APP/shock travel/load cell sensors, analog MAF sensors, any 2-wire temperature sensor, RTD, EGT. Three switched to ground digital inputs, 16.5V MAX tolerance are included, such as clutch/brake/cooling fan ground switch, nitrous solenoid ground, or ground switch input to start/stop logger.
The kit includes the data logger module with 2GB SD card, dust cover, mounting hardware, USB cable, and instructions. The included software features a set-up wizard and comprehensive AEM sensor library for simple configuration and use. To connect the AQ-1, AEM offers a full color-coded harness with bundle identifiers and functions silk-screened on the wire body for easy identification. This harness is available in 18” and 96” in lengths, and is pre-wired for the AEMnet high-speed communication network, CAN, RS-232 serial, remote mount USB and more. A Mini-Harness is also available that includes all the necessary pins and weather seals to build a custom harness. Wiring harnesses are sold separately.
The data logger interfaces with your laptop via the included USB cable and on-board USB port or the remote mount USB in the wiring harness. Once up and running, log files can be created for use with the included advanced AEMdata analysis software. The software features 3D graphics and a user-friendly, customizable interface. It allows you to review and playback vehicle, driver, or engine data and overlay this data using charts, dash displays, gauges, or custom displays that you create.
John Concialdi and Bob Sullivan co founded AEM® in 1987 as a tuning performance shop in Compton California. Both men had extensive technical backgrounds in engines and engine airflow, and in a short time AEM became the go-to company for performance modifications. By 1993, when the company relocated to Gardena California, it had become commonplace to see cars wearing the bright yellow AEM logo winning races. AEM tirelessly dyno tested and worked closely with racers and auto manufacturers in an effort to understand intake energy dynamics. This resulted in the sale of their first air intake kit in 1994. AEM can boast a number of firsts and unique products. They’re the first manufacturer to make an intake system with specific tube lengths and diameters to take advantage of pressure waves in the inlet tract; they developed the first dual chamber intake kit; they designed an air bypass valve to prevent hydro-lock should the air filter ingest water; and they created one of the first hybrid intake systems for modified cars. AEM continues to create innovative products to help you get more power from your car.
