Introduction

FC-HAKO connected to Apexi PowerFC in vehicle FC-HAKO is designed to work with official Apexi and third party software with the help of baud-rate detection implemented in hardware. This allows flexibility to use software that works best by the user, so you are not locked in to specific software. Also, FC-HAKO supports analog inputs with software that uses it (see compatibility guide). So if you need to perform logging with external analog inputs (wideband O2 controller and MAP sensor), FC-HAKO allows you to do this.

FC-HAKO works with legacy and universal Power FC communications protocol. This is done through auto-detection of the protocol, all transparently to the user. So there is no need to know whether you have an older or newer PowerFC (eg: Nissan Skyline RB25 vs ECR33), or a PowerFC which communicates only with the older protocol (eg: Toyota Supra JZA70 or Toyota MR2 SW20). This is the most common problem when it comes to hand controller incompatibility issues. FC-HAKO does away with that problem for the user.

FC-HAKO is perfect if you want to check the tune made by your 2D fuel map - MAP-RPM - 1JZ-GTE 370cc tuner. Nearly all people assume that the tuner does a very good job, but its far from the truth. Yes, peak power may be tuned to the correct AFR, but there could be one particular point (load and RPM) where it feels like a flat spot. Or there may have been a mistake or two in the injection part of the map where interpolation was not correctly performed.

If you are looking for target AFR tables, here are some real examples:
Toyota 1JZ-GTE 370cc
Toyota 2JZ-GTE 1000cc
Nissan RB26DETT 720cc
Nissan RB30DET 800cc
Mitsubishi EVO 9 4G63

FC-HAKO: Wideband controller input

The FC-HAKO features differential input logging for O2 wideband feedback for tuning purposes on supported software.

To connect up the wideband o2 controller to the FC-HAKO, the following table provides examples.

FC-HAKO hardware revision II

Since 21 Mar 2012, there is now a new minor hardware revision of FC-HAKO. The main additions are:
• 4 analog inputs, suitable for 2 individual differential inputs (AN1-AN2 and AN3-AN4).
• automatic pulldown to zero volts if no external analog signal connected.
• internal LED for PowerFC communications, to visibly see activity of communications between FC-HAKO and PowerFC.

Software compatibility guide

FC-HAKO has been tested on the following operating systems:
• Windows XP Home
• Windows XP Pro
• Windows Vista 32-bit and 64-bit
• Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit
• Windows 8 32-bit and 64-bit

FC-HAKO has been designed to work with as many different tuning software as possible, including support of analog inputs.
