FROM THE FIRST ANALOGUE MODULES...The path taken in 1995 with the first analogue products, continued with the launch of the first digital LPI platforms for turbo-diesel engines in 2004. Pressure optimisation developed alongside this, as did the management of injection times, thus diversifying products for different applications. This led to the creation of winning XTI platforms (trucks and tractors), LPDs (Toyota) and BHV (BMW and other brands).

...TO A BRAND NEW ‘RAPID 2.0’ PLATFORM 2014 saw the birth of the TPM technology platform, which initially focused exclusively on turbo-petrol engines and came with a professional fine-tuning software that accompanies the "legendary" calibration console.
In 2016 TPM technology was extended to turbo-diesel engines in order to maintain the high optimisation level guaranteed by DIMSPORT in new-generation cars too.

Rapid TPM: a new platform for cars with turbo-diesel and turbo-petrol engines

Rapid TPM (Turbo Power Management) is DIMSPORT's latest technological innovation. It is a new generation platform that is able to handle turbo-diesel and turbo-petrol engines. The new module is equipped with a microprocessor, FLASH eprom and RAM eeprom so as to gain full control of the relevant pressure sensors; these are also able to control some signals sent from the CAN BUS line of the vehicle's original electronic control units.
All Rapid modules were developed with a view to keeping unchanged the safety and protection features of the original engine control unit, such as the self-adapting functions of the vehicle's electronic system and the monitoring of critical parameters relating to engine function. Some wirings are already designed to work with communication protocol SAE J2716 SENT.

THE WORLD OF TURBO-PETROL The world of cars has evolved giving new space to supercharged Petrol engines, which are increasingly common in small to medium-sized vehicles. The approach chosen for Rapid TPM allows for customised engine function, by analysing various signals such as air flow, intake manifold pressure, turbo pressure and engine RPM.
The platform is linked directly to the sensors with plug&play wiring, which is specifically designed for each compatible vehicle.

TURBO-DIESELS In the case of turbo-diesel engines, Rapid TPM works with the signal sent by the rail pressure sensor in a simple and efficient way; in addition to this, the pressure in the intake manifold can also be altered in order to manage the turbo, using engine RPM as well as any additional signals that may have been sent from the CAN line as a reference.

ONE SINGLE MODULE FOR ALL APPLICATIONS TPM modules are the same for all applications: The choice of Specific wiring and the writing of custom-made firmware using the TPM Software, allows for the creation of a customised kit for the required application, with the added benefit of standard calibration provided by DIMSPORT and a professional tool for even finer tuning of the vehicle in real time.

The other Rapid modules

Besides the TPM platform, Rapid offers a range of successful products made exclusively for Turbo Diesel engines.

This product range is available for cars, commercial vehicles, trucks, tractors and boats. All modules were developed with a view to keeping unchanged the safety and protection features of the vehicle's original electronic control unit, such as the self-adapting functions of the vehicle's electronic system, the management of the diesel particulate filter and the monitoring of critical parameters relating to engine function.

ADJUSTING THE RAIL PRESSURE The first approach (the Rapid LPI and LPT approach) makes it possible to personalise the function of the engine and fuel flow by calibrating the signal indicating the diesel fuel injection pressure in the rail differently. The advantages are: incredibly easy installation thanks to fewer wirings and the overall optimisation of torque output.

rapid car Recalibration of injector opening time (duty-cycle injectors) makes it possible to manage specific signals sent by each injector, thus obtaining a detailed record of injection times and the quantity of fuel injected. Modules are linked directly to the injectors with wiring created ad hoc for each compatible vehicle. This approach involved the development of especially advanced modules, equipped with a microprocessor, FLASH eprom and RAM eeprom for full control of the injection parameters, leading to the creation of successful products such as BHV, XTI, LPD, VPE and many others. The result is a module that supports significantly enhanced vehicle performance even during multiple injections, for example pre- and post-injections necessary in managing the diesel particulate filters.

CUSTOMISATION USING THE CONSOLE The digital calibration console makes it possible to modify Rapid's reference values, which determine the intervention threshold and the increase in torque and power, customising performance depending on the vehicle and what the requirements are. DIMSPORT provides a standard calibration for each application but additional fine-tuning can be made in real time, on the road or on the power test bench.

Calibration Console

Our kit are supplied precofigured by with standard calibrations developed by our technicians, that are an excellent mix of performance and reliability. The standard calibration of the Rapid kit is the starting point for any possible customization that the installer can carry out to better meet the customer's needs.

Rapid can further satisfy client's needs and be customised to each single vehicles, as each installer can use a special tool to change the setting parameters managing the working of the add-on-module: the so called calibration console.

rapid car This device allows to display and modify the managing variables/settings of the add-on module by means of some simple and intuitive controls. You just need to connect it at the switch's place on the Rapid wring so that it is fed directly. It is possible to operate in any condition of use, even when the engine is running so allowing the installer to manage the Rapid module fine-tuning autonomously, even after the installation of the module. It will be therefore possible to check directly on the road the effects of the different calibrations. The calibration console is also an essential diagnostic tool, required to be supported by Dimsport: it allows to vary the setting of the modules.

A new user-friendly, intuitive interface for the calibration of turbopetrol add-on modules is available today: conceived as an evolution of the tuning console, Rapid TPM software is an advanced platform allowing professional tuners to easily perform real-time tuning, download standard calibration pre-set and update fimware versions.
