MoTeC M150 Engine Management System with our Custom Land Speed Racing Firmware





Advances in technology have increased the demands on a vehicle’s components, especially the ECU. This demand has reached the point where a single firmware to ECU configuration cannot meet the market’s ECU requirements (even with increased capacity and processor speed).

The M1 series was conceived by MoTeC to overcome this one-to-one, firmware to ECU limitation, by designing a system where operational efficiency, advanced features and flexibility are its primary objectives. At its core, M1 provides the ability to develop a suite of flexible and tailored solutions (packages), making it ideal for any application (however complex) and category management.

Key advantages of M1 systems:

  • Latest generation high performance processor
  • Large logging memory, fast Ethernet downloads
  • Compact and lightweight in robust magnesium enclosures
  • Supports direct injection and port injection applications
  • Supports advanced logging features including Pro Analysis (i2 Pro)
  • Advanced security system, incorporating an anti-tampering microprocessor
  • Access log-in levels for multiple users
  • Suitable for modern engines with DBW, Cam Control and multiple CAN buses
  • Advanced logging features, high speed, multiple logs (with access logins)
  • I/O expansion using E888 expander
  • Flexible tuning software
  • Programmable digital input system for Crank/Cam, wheel speeds etc.
  • Programmable trigger levels, diagnostics
  • All Low Side and Half Bridge outputs have PWM capability

M150 ECU – 12Injectors, 12 Ignitions, 17 AV Inputs, 6 AT Inputs, 4 Digitals, 12 Universal Digitals, 5 Bridge Outputs, 4 Knock Inputs, 10 Half Bridge Outputs, 3 CAN Bus, 1 LIN Bus, 1 Ethernet, 3 Axis Accelerometer built in, 6 Low Side Outputs, RS232 Comms

Our Custom Firmware for Land Speed Racing Vehicles is meant to be integrated with a MoTeC Dash and Power Distribution Module to create a powerful and World Record Setting Vehicle Management System.
