The DataMaster Sportsman Computer represents the future in drag racing data recording. This all-digital unit is the fastest in the industry, recording all pulse data as a frequency. Since there are no outdated analog channels to slow processing down, a sampling rate of over 3,300 times per second is achieved. In time to distance calculations, DataMaster can see the actual track distance traveled within one (1) inch and engine RPM variation within just three (3) RPM. No other data recorder presently available (at any price) can achieve this much accuracy! Want proof? Then, click here.

The DataMaster is not a typical data recorder. it is a performance computer. It does not have any analog channels so it does not do temperatures or pressures, which in our application have no purpose or use. We are interested in finding thousandths of a second of variance, where it happened, and why it occurred. It's all about consistency and this is the only tool that can do it.

DataMaster uses twelve(12) pickup points on the drive shaft. This is also the only data recorder that reports vehicle reaction time and actual performance data in time slip form that will actually match a Compulink timing system within .001 of a second. The DataMaster weighs just 14 ounces.

DataMaster will accept any DC power source from 9 to 36 volts. It can store up to four runs in memory without having to download. There are a total of 16 digital input channels that can detect contact closures (switches), count pulses, or respond to logic levels (high/low). Nine digital inputs are currently accessed by the units firmware with the remaining 7 inputs being reserved for future expansion. Two digital inputs are used to record crankshaft and drive shaft pulses, a third by the system, and 6 more are available to monitor switches of your choosing, shifter, brake pedal, full throttle, etc.

A forty (40) character, two line, LCD screen and 12 button keypad are used to display data after each run and to perform other functions. DataMaster supports RS232 communication for downloading data directly to an IBM compatible PC for graphing and analysis. DataMaster Analyzer software allows the user to put the cursor anywhere on the graph and see the actual data instantly. Overlay one run on top of another for easy comparison of runs.

How does DataMaster compare to the other data recorders on the market? To read our newsletter concerning this topic, click here.

"I have seen everything else that is out there. Nothing else can compare! The DataMaster can find mere thousandths of a second in performance variance between runs. The other brands are just old-fashioned data loggers, they can't provide a Sportsman racer any valuable information."
