Engine Protection Systems

Operating a fleet constitutes large investments and high risk. Engine or Gearbox failure could be very costly, not to mention the “down time” of the vehicle.
With the vast knowledge of our research and development team, Auto Tecnic have developed specialised  engine protection systems to monitor all critical elements which would result in engine or gearbox failure.
Our engine management systems have been designed to “shut down” (manufacturers specification) the engine and protect it before further damage can occur.
With the versatility of our systems they can be used on all types of vehicles. i.e. Cars, bakkies, trucks, earth moving equipment, generators, air-cooled engines etc.
 
Our engine management systems are perfect for ensuring that your engines last the longest lifespan that they can, allowing for less down time and more time on the road or operating by protecting them from failure.
 
List of critical elements which can be monitored and protected by the engine management systems:
 • Engine Oil Pressure
 • Turbo Oil Pressure
 • Engine Temperature
 • Coolant Level
 • Gearbox Temperature
 • Gearbox Oil Pressure
 • Clutch Abuse
 • Fan Belt
 • Dirty Air Filters
 • Water Trap
 • Brake Pads

Notifications of all the above alarms can be sent to nominated persons either via SMS, E-mail or on the tracking platform.

Please note that we can integrate with most tracking systems. However, the tracking system needs to be compatible to integrate.

All engine management projects are carried out in three basic stages:

1. VEHICLE ASSESSMENT
This involves working out the current limitations of the vehicle and its associated systems. Does the fuel system supply enough fuel for the intended engine performance? Are there any engine limitations that we are likely to encounter as we extract more performance? Will the existing running gear be adequate for the levels of torque we are likely to obtain?

2. INSTALLATION
This includes wiring in the fully mappable ECU to your existing engine loom. All electrical joins are soldered and heat-shrunk, and the wiring is protected with OEM automotive-grade electrical conduit. We supply high quality wiring looms to both public and trade.

3. SETTING UP & MAPPING
Rather than simply downloading a generic map, we create and fine-tune maps specifically for your engine, in your car. This normally includes both road and rolling road mapping - using our state of the art AutotTecnic chassis dynamometer. Your engine is also repeatedly tested at a wide range of temperatures in order to fine-tune the idle quality.

We keep a wide range of engine management components in stock, including fully programmable ECU's, wiring looms, sensors and ignition components. See our Products page. Our engine / engine management wiring looms are made in-house to cater for both individual and trade applications. We also prove remote engine monitoring.
