The Safari ARMAX ‘X Series’ Engine Control Unit (ECU) is designed to work harmoniously with your vehicles OE Engine Control Unit resulting in more power, more torque, better throttle response, less fuel consumption and less turbo lag. This is all backed up by Safari’s sophisticated engine protection systems which are constantly live monitoring your vehicle for total drivetrain safety and ultimate reliability. The ARMAX ECU has 5 pre-calibrated maps for all user conditions but can be altered to suit specific applications. The plug and play wiring harness makes installation quick and easy and vehicle specific mounting bracketry complements the installation. The Safari ARMAX ‘X Series’ ECU is the total package, no upgrades required, no additional units needed. It is a total system solution specifically designed for your 4×4 vehicle.
The ‘X Series’ ARMAX ECU increases the open duration and the injection timing point of the fuel injector, allowing more diesel fuel to enter the combustion chamber. Due to the increase in fuel, the boost pressure the engine receives from the turbocharger is increased, optimizing the air fuel ratio. The result is increased engine power, torque, and better throttle response.
In some applications, the fuel system pressure is increased at specific engine RPM points and load demands to ensure accurate fuel delivery to the injector.
This approach ensures the service life of the mechanical components in the fuel system are not influenced. Another Standard feature of the ARMAX ECU is the ability to change the throttle sensitivity, this feature can be tailored to individual driver requirements.
The ‘X Series’ ARMAX ECU blends seamlessly with the factory ECU due to its ability to sense engine load from multiple sources such as Engine RPM, Manifold Pressure, Fuel Pressure, Throttle Position and Exhaust Gas Temperature. From here the ECU very precisely calculates the engine load and accordingly adjusts the parameters to meet the pre-calibrated demand.
The ARMAX ECU delivers a strong yet very smooth power enhancement, as the driver demands more power the ECU delivers more power.
The Safari ARMAX Engine Control Unit (ECU) includes an illuminated in-cab adjustable map selection switch.
The press of a button changes your vehicles driving characteristics between 5 different modes (maps).
1. COMFORT – Progressive power and torque delivery, great for everyday driving.
2. SPORT – Enhanced throttle response with strong power and torque delivery.
3. TOWING – With an emphasis on low end torque and reduced top end power to protect your vehicle whilst towing extra weight at ease.
4. TRACTION ASSIST – Slow and smooth throttle response whilst maintaining full power and torque to navigate difficult terrain.
5. STANDARD – Vehicle set to standard OEM power and torque output. Allows ECU to be fitted to brand new vehicle for run-in period.
The map selection switch comes with a 500mm long flying lead so the switch can be easily installed in any position conveniently located to the driver.
