    Air Runner Help

    Ok this is the setup that i am purchasing and i need help to get the setup running.http://www.airrunnersystems.com/cont...ications/honda I am debating if i should get the 150psi or 400psi digital dakota sensors. I do not know what actuators to get to raise and lower the car. I am very stumped on software side getting the fusion brain to do what i envision it. So lets start off with where i should start first. I already have all the necessary hardware to get this going but digital dakota sensors and actuators. I will be following this wiring setup.http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/fb-o...ir-valves.html Any help or input on what else i would need to get this project complete and any help with the software side of the fusion brain is great.

    As far as the sensors go, ask yourself how much pressure is going to be on the system and choose the smallest necessary. I've found that the accuracy of the sensors gets worse the higher the pressure you're trying to read. Also, the incremental accuracy is worse for the 400 than the 150 sensors - compare the specs closely. Its unfortunate, that Dakota Digital refuses to release their testing/calibration data for their sensors so we could create fusion brain formulas to most accurately read them, but I tried to get some of that info on the 400psi sensors and all I was able to get were Psi/RTypical/Rmin/Rmax of 3 points. Extrapolating that data, the Rmin/Rmax above 116psi exceeded the accuracy of the sensor. For example on this graph, with a resistance at position 9 the Psi could be anywhere from 120-170psi.

    Good luck with that.

    now when you talk about Rtypical/Rmin/Rmax, what are the meanings of that?

    Are u gonna use the FB to read the pressure or to activate the air solenoids as well?

    i would like to use the FB just to see pressures first and when i figure out digital outs to control the air solenoids i will incorporate that in once i feel comfortable to get rid of the manual switches.

    No need to get rid of the manual switches, you can run them in parallel.

    The manual switches are done via air, by a 5 port manifold. So i guess i need to buy electrical switches.

    Oh yeah I forget that AR kits come with manual air valves.

    what kind of valves and solenoids are you using rgarjr. Do you have your electric switches running in parallel with FB.
