This guide describes how to setup a Smart Dash system with the Link G4+ Series of ECU's


Prerequisites


Instructions

Since Link does not broadcast their own protocol, Situne provide Link Can Stream files that makes the ECU conform to one of the protocols supported by Smart Dash. This guide will help you through the configuration of the Link G4+ ECU.

So lets get started !


1. Open PCLink+ software


2. Go Online (Upper right corner should show green color)
3. Select Menu "ECU Controls"

4. Select "CAN Setup"

5. Select the correct CAN Module in "CAN Configuration" section og "Mode" tab.
  • Atom II has one CAN-bus called CAN2
  • Monsoon has one CAN-bus called CAN2
  • Storm has one CAN-bus called CAN2
  • Kurofune has one CAN-bus called CAN2
  • Storm has one CAN-bus called CAN2
  • Extreme has two CAN-bus called CAN1 & CAN2
  • Fury has two CAN-buses called CAN1 & CAN2
  • Thunder has two CAN-buses called CAN1 & CAN2
  • Force GDI has two CAN-buses called CAN1 & CAN2

On ECUs containing two CAN-buses, one can connect Smart Dash CAN1 to any of the Links CAN-Buses.



6. Select "Mode" drop down and select "User Defined"



7. Select "Bit Rate" drop down and select "1 Mbit/s"


The bus is now configured to send User defined data at a speed of 1Mbit/s (1000kbit/s).

14. In the "Mode" drop down of the "Data" section select "Transmit User Stream 2"
15. In the "Transmit Rate" drop down select "50Hz"
16. In the "CAN ID" section select "Normal" as "Format"
17. Enter "785" in the "ID" field of the "CAN ID" section

Stream two is now configured, lets continue on three

18. In the "Data" section of the "Mode" tab select "Channel 3" from the left selection box
19. In the "Mode" drop down of the "Data" section select "Transmit User Stream 3"

21. In the "CAN ID" section select "Normal" as "Format"
22. Enter "787" in the "ID" field of the "CAN ID" section

Stream setup is now complete, last step is to load the actual CAN streams.

23. Click the "Streams" tab on top of the CAN Setup window.


24. On the left side tree select the "Stream 1" item
25. Click the "Load Stream" button in the Stream section

26. This opens a open file dialog, select the Stream_1.lcs from the zip file downloaded above
