Influx Vehicle Data Logger for Affordable GPS and GPRS Recording

CHESTERLAND OH — Castrol has just released a new commercial featuring DTM championship driver Mike Rockenfeller and his Audi R8 preparing for Castrol’s EDGE Titanium Strong Blackout—the world’s first state of the art racetrack in near-total darkness. The video features the top of an Influx Rebel XT datalogger attached to the driver’s backseat. During the Audi’s test the Rebel plotted the vehicle data for later performance analysis to help Mike’s team prepare for the race. Check out the new video on YouTube at As the exclusive distributor for Influx, CAS DataLoggers provides these vehicle data loggers for GPS and GPRS recording applications.

Do you need to log data in a vehicle diagnostic application? The Influx Rebel xt Vehicle Data Logger is the ideal device to capture OBD, CAN, analog and GPS signals. The Rebel xt offers versatile and powerful data logging with FREE software enabling you to start recording data in minutes. With remote data accessibility, the Rebel xt is the ideal solution for CAN bus data recording in diesel applications, developing alternative fuel sources including electric and hybrid transmission, fleet management and more.

The Rebel xt can collect data from several sources for extensive periods of time without requiring any user interaction, and setup is simple with no need to write complex scripts. With 3x (opto-isolated) CAN communications channels, the Rebel xt allows data to be collected from the OBD port using ISO14229 and ISO15765 protocols and also features support for K-Line and LIN 1.2 protocols. The Rebel xt also features an LCD Display, keypad and 8 LEDs, internal and external SD memory storage of 2GB (each), multiple trigger sources, and an option for remote link via a GPRS cellular modem and optional GPS for location tracking.

Additionally the high-speed Rebel xt now adds J1939 for communication and diagnostics for vehicle components, allowing users to convert data from diesel engines and trucks just as the Rebel already does with passenger vehicles.

Users running vehicle tests and requiring additional engine data alongside their instrumentation will find the Rebel xt a handy tool, as the datalogger can acquire most of the additional data without the need for additional instrumentation. For OEM engineering data acquisition using CCP and xCP protocols, the Rebel xt supports high-speed sampling rates to acquire internal ECU parameters. For CAN bus data logging applications, users can record CAN signals in a ‘listen only’ mode.

Every Rebel xt data logger includes FREE DiaLog software for configuring data acquisition and analyzing data, all in
one intuitive package. Dialog lets you view data graphically and is an ideal analysis tool for zooming in on your data.

DiaLog offers configuration via Bluetooth or USB and imports industry standard ASAM A2L files, ODX and CAN dbc formats. You can also construct complex data logging configurations using the simple graphical interface which also reconfigures and retrieves data by direct and remote connections. The Rebel xt also features DataVue, an integrated professional data analysis tool allowing for advanced visual data analysis with the use of sophisticated graphing tools. Influx can also offer Secure Streaming Data Management on request, no infrastructure needed.

The Rebel’s optional add-on functions include an integrated GPS, an additional mini SD card, and integrated GPRS modem with EDGE technology to allow remote access. We also offer an instrumentation module and expansion box providing electrically-isolated analog instrumentation and temperature measurement via K-type thermocouple inputs.
