Dimension and Pin Assignment

If someone would like to integrate the MFD15 themselves and is fit in the field of CAD design, we offer a STEP/STL file here, which can be used as a dummy:




Connection and Expansion

Each delivery includes:
- Connector B (6-way)
- Connector C (12-way)
- 20cm pre-crimped connection cable for power supply, CAN bus, analog inputs, 5V and sensor ground
- Pins to crimp yourself
- Two 1K resistors (for pull-up for NTC sensors)

Any sensors can be connected via the six analog inputs - we support both linear 0-5V and NTC sensors.

The sensors we offer are usually stored in the TRI files and only need to be connected:
- CC22902 temperature sensor for liquids
- CC22901 pressure sensor M10x1 0-10 bar (145psi)
- CC22900 pressure sensor 0-5.5bar (80psi)
- generic type K converter 0 -1250°C


CC22501 Rotary Knob (optional)

The rotary knob already known from the MFD15 Gen1 is only optional.
It can be used when the front buttons of the display are difficult to reach or when you prefer to use them.
The connection is plug and play directly to connector B on the back of the display. With its 50cm long cable, it can be flexibly accommodated in the vehicle.

Online logging of the MFD15 Gen2

With the "Online Logging" license, your display can log the data into the oDSS, where you can then download it as a file to your smartphone or PC.

All sensors are logged in the log (ATTENTION: with OBD and UDS only the currently displayed ones!) . Select the sensors you may want to graph.

Integrated shift light + warnings

The internal LED in the top center of the display can be used as a shift light and/or as a warning LED.

Up to 8 different colors and speed limits are assigned as a shift light, as well as a speed at which the shift light flashes strongly and quickly.

You can assign a min and max value for each sensor (in the oDSS via "Sensors") and also activate the "LED" there. If the sensor is above the maximum value or below the minimum value, the LED flashes quickly in the color specified under "General Settings" => "LED warning". The shift light is deactivated during the warning period.

CAN switching and analog forwarding

The display can be expanded with a license for our " Can Switching ". On the one hand, this contains button statuses, which are forwarded via Can Bus (ON/OFF) and, on the other hand, " Analog Forwarding ", which the internal analog inputs send via Can Bus.

The display offers emulations for:
– CANchecked MCE18 and CFE18
– Haltech IOA, IOB or IOA+B
– Ecumaster (Emu v3)
– LinkECU

In the oDSS you can now configure the CAN switch under "General Settings" :
- left button
- right button
- button of the optional rotary knob

Can switch in the display

The functions are then assigned to these buttons in the control unit. Eg:
– MAP Switch
– Launch Control
– Antilag
– Enable Fan
– or others

Alternatively, set the "Encoder button" to "Can Switch 1-6". Here you get an overview of the buttons 1-6 and their current status. By turning the rotary knob, you reach the buttons and you can change the button status by pressing the rotary knob. In the oDSS you adjust the names of the buttons and thus you know exactly which function is active/inactive.

" Analog forwarding " forwards the sensors connected to the display (up to 6) to the control unit - these can be sensors, physical switches, position encoders or others.

Ethanol sensor directly on the MFD15 Gen2

With the additional license for the ethanol sensor, you connect a sensor directly to the display. You need a pullup resistor (10K) between 5V and signal.
Now you can view and log both the ethanol content and the fuel temperature.
