Magneti Marelli Vision 5 Mapping Software: A Powerful Tool for ECU Calibration




If you are looking for a flexible and reliable tool to control and calibrate electronic devices based on the Magneti Marelli Competition communication protocol, you might want to check out the Vision 5 mapping software. This software allows you to access, display, edit and compare a set of channels resulting from real-time ECU calculations. You can also perform automatic mapping procedures with a potentiometer desk connected to your PC. In this article, we will explain what Magneti Marelli Vision 5 is, how to connect it to Magneti Marelli ECUs, and how to display and edit ECU channels with it.




Magneti Marelli Vision 5 Mapping Software



What is Magneti Marelli Vision 5?




Magneti Marelli Vision 5 is a display and calibration tool for electronic devices based on the Magneti Marelli Competition communication protocol. It is compatible with Windows98/ME/2000/XP and supports different kinds of windows for both read and write operations. You can customize your display screen according to your preferences and save it for future use. You can also link Vision 5 to external tools such as Excel for further analysis.


Features and benefits of Vision 5




Some of the features and benefits of Vision 5 are:


  • Connection via different physical links such as CAN, 100BaseT Ethernet and RS 232



  • MultiBOX/MultiPC interconnections



  • Customizable screen layouts



  • Notification of out-of-range channels



  • Support for user-defined diagnostics and alarms



  • Real-time graphical reproduction of channels



  • Graphic editor and compare tools for calibration tables



  • Proprietary communication protocol for a fast and reliable PC-ECU link



  • Real-time ECU monitoring



  • Mapping ECU



  • Calibration tables management tools



How to use Vision 5




To use Vision 5, you need to install it on your PC and connect it to your electronic device via one of the supported communication links. You also need to open the configuration file that contains the information about the channels you want to access. The configuration file is based on the concepts of Page/Window/Channel, which allow you to design your layout flexibly. You can create a new configuration file or load an existing one with DSETUP, a tool included in Vision 5. After opening the configuration file, you can access the channels in different windows such as Display, Potentiometer, Oscilloscope and Calibration Table Editor. You can also read and write the full contents of the ECU's E2PROM to and from *.TAB files or browse and edit the calibration maps in *.PTA files. If you have a potentiometer desk connected to your PC, you can start the automatic mapping procedure by clicking on "Map" on the menu bar and selecting "Map files (PTA)...".


How to connect Vision 5 to Magneti Marelli ECUs




Vision 5 can communicate with different types of Magneti Marelli ECUs via different physical links. In this section, we will explain how to connect Vision 5 to Magneti Marelli ECUs using CAN, Ethernet or RS232.


Supported communication links and protocols




The principal PC-ECU communication links supported by Vision 5 are CAN, 100BaseT Ethernet and RS232. However, some ECUs may require specific adapters or cables to connect with these links. For example, some ECUs may use K-Line or LIN protocols instead of CAN or RS232. In this case, you need to use a K-Line/LIN adapter or cable that converts these protocols into CAN or RS232 signals that can be recognized by Vision 5. You can find more information about the specific communication links and protocols for each ECU model in the user manuals or datasheets provided by Magneti Marelli.


Configuration file and ECU mapping




To connect Vision 5 to a Magneti Marelli ECU, you need to open the configuration file that matches the ECU model you are using. The configuration file contains the information about the channels that are available on the ECU and how they are organized in pages, windows and groups. You can create a new configuration file or load an existing one with DSETUP. You can also modify the configuration file according to your needs by adding or deleting pages, windows or channels. However, you should be careful not to change the channel names or addresses as they are defined by the ECU firmware. If you do so, you may cause errors or damage to the ECU.


To map the ECU with Vision 5, you need to read and write the calibration maps that are stored in partial areas of memory on the ECU. The calibration maps are saved in *.PTA files that can be opened with Vision 5. You can edit the calibration maps by changing the values in the numerical table or in the graphical representation. You can also compare two calibration maps by using the compare tool that shows the differences between them. To perform an automatic mapping procedure with a potentiometer desk connected to your PC, you need to click on "Map" on the menu bar and select "Map files (PTA)...". This will open a window where you can select the PTA file you want to map and start the process by clicking on "Start" . The automatic mapping procedure will adjust the values in the PTA file according to the inputs from the potentiometer desk until you click on "Stop" . You can then save the modified PTA file or restore it to its original state .


How to display and edit ECU channels with Vision 5




Vision 5 allows you to display and edit ECU channels in different windows that can be customized according to your preferences. In this section, we will explain how to use some of these windows such as Display, Potentiometer, Oscilloscope and Calibration Table Editor.


Display window and potentiometer window




The Display window presents each channel as a label followed by its instantaneous value, measurement unit and an optional color bar graph . The values are re-read at each refresh cycle . You can add or delete channels from this window by using DSETUP . You can also change the appearance of this window by modifying its size, position, color or font . The Display window can be used for read-only operations or for read/write operations depending on the channel type . The Potentiometer window allows you to modify some channels manually by using sliders . The sliders represent potentiometers that are connected to your PC via an interface device . You can add or delete channels from this window by using DSETUP . You can also change the appearance of this window by modifying its size, position, color or font . The Potentiometer window can be used for read/write operations only . Here is an example of a Display window and a Potentiometer window:


Display Window Potentiometer Window -------------- -------------------- Oscilloscope window and calibration table editor




The Oscilloscope window allows you to show graphically the evolution of the selected channels over time . You can adjust the time scale, the trigger mode and the trigger level of this window . You can also zoom in or out on the graph or pause or resume the acquisition . You can add or delete channels from this window by using DSETUP . You can also change the appearance of this window by modifying its size, position, color or font . The Oscilloscope window can be used for read-only operations . The Calibration Table Editor allows you to edit the calibration tables that are stored in *.PTA files . You can display the data both in the numerical and in the graphical format . The numerical table shows the values of the table cells and their addresses . The graphical representation shows the values of the table cells as a surface or a contour plot . You can modify the values in either format by using your mouse or keyboard . You can also use the compare tool to show the differences between two calibration tables . The Calibration Table Editor can be used for read/write operations . Here is an example of an Oscilloscope window and a Calibration Table Editor:
