Power Commander V

Dynojet Research just announced the Power Commander V, the new unit has a lot of new features, but the most interesting ones are:

1-The “Auto Tune” kit which includes a Wide Band O2 sensor(s) and control box(es), the kit plugs directly into the Power Commander and allow automatic fuel adjustments.

2-On the fly 2 position map switching function.

Other new features

  • Reduced size from PCIIIusb (less than half of the size of PCIII)
  • USB powered from computer (9 volt adapter is no longer needed for programming)
  • 2 position map switching function built in (map switch not included)
  • Gear/Speed input (allows for map adjustment based on gear and speed)
  • Analog input (allows user to install any 0-5 volt sensor and build an adjustment table based on its input such as boost or temperature)
  • With gear position input connected the PCV is capable of allowing each cylinder to be mapped individually and for each gear (for example: on a 4 cylinder bike with a six speed transmission there could be up to 24 separate fuel tables).
  • Unit has a -100/+250% fuel change range (up from -100/+100%). This allows more adjustment range for 8 injector sportbikes
  • 10 throttle position columns (up from 9 on PCIIIusb)
  • Enhanced “accel pump” utility (increased adjustment and sensitivity ranges)

Harley Davidson Units Also Include:

  • Fuel and Timing control
  • Rev Xtend
  • “Warm Up” fuel adjustment (unit reads engine temp and allows fuel/timing adjustments based on it)
  • Software will display J1850 data from bikes’ stock ECU (this is data such as temp, fuel pulse width, timing advance, spark knock, etc.)

Auto Tune:

  • “Auto Tune” kit will be available that includes Wide Band O2 sensor(s) and control box(es). It will plug directly into the PCV and allow automatic fuel adjustments.
  • It can make a map for each gear and on a Harley Davidson models it can map each cylinder separately for each gear if needed. (basic settings would make one map for all gears)
  • Each map cell is individually adjustable so you can specify an exact AFR value for each area if needed.
