Performing ECM signal measurement and failure testing without modifying the harness can be difficult and time consuming. ECM breakout boxes are rugged harness inserts designed to make this painful job easy. Breakout boxes were designed by application developers to assist troubleshooting and failure mode testing activities and are a highly recommended part of every developer's toolkit. The family of breakout boxes covers both Raptor and MotoHawk modules. The breakout box plugs into the existing harness connectors and ECM, but also provides an extension with measurement points and circuit breaking bars. Each pin to the ECM can be probed, open circuited, or connected to any other signal. Each breakout box assembly comes with an expander toolkit of patch cables, shorting bars and banana jacks.

The Desktop I/O Simulator is designed to assist in developing control programming for a MotoHawk ECM; this practical device enables you to more easily simulate and adjust analog input levels (via onboard potentiometers), monitor output, test application scenarios, etc., without requiring the actual sensor connections. The Simulator has I/O, CAN connections, power and ground channels, key-switch, and other features as applicable, which map to the respective resources of the ECM in use. Connect the MotoHawk ECM to the Simulator using the appropriate available harness. Connect a computer with programming and calibration tools to the ECM via CAN or RS485 connection to the mounted CAN junction box or floating connectors. Then use the Simulator to adjust input levels, drive output loads, monitor I/O signals and verify parameters, and as a result better understand and adjust the control programming needed, without using actual application hardware.

Depending on the ECM resources available, some of the jacks may not be mapped or connected to any resource from the ECM. Refer to the datasheet for your particular ECM to determine the resources available. It is best to check and verify the presence of the intended Simulator/ECM resource before attempting to apply in a test scenario.
Make the following connections:
- SCF: Plug the connector labeled SCF on the back of the simulator into the 4-way junction box on the front of the simulator.
- Power Cable: Plug the power supply cables on the back of the simulator into your power supply.
- CAN: Connect your CAN or communications cable (sold separately) into the Simulator 4-way junction box.
- SCM: Optional connector for external key-switch
- Serial: Optional connector for external serial communications
Power and Ground Channels
Warning: Simulator is configured for 12V systems. For 24V systems, the relay connected on the backside must be changed to the 24V relay or failure may occur. The Power and Ground Channels are located in the center of the Simulator, and include BATT, XDRP A/B, XDRG, MPRD, DRVP, DVRG, EST RTN and Key-Switch. These are connected to the ECM via the harness, though the jacks allow optional external connections.
Note: Connection to a 12VDC (nominal) power supply is required. The Desktop I/O Simulator has a positive and a negative connector for use with a power supply. Do not use a supply higher than 36VDC, as the LED circuits are not able to withstand this.
- KEY SWITCH: The KEY SWITCH interface includes a top, vertical-direction ON/OFF switch, which connects directly to the key-switch (ECUP) input to the ECM, to turn the ECM key-switch on/off. The other, side-to-side switch enables/disables the ON/OFF function of the top switch. The red jack allows connection of an external key-switch input. Note: Some ECMs use the key-switch input, others do not. Refer to the datasheet for your ECM.
- MANUAL/DVRP: You can turn the DVRP to the ECM on/off via the MANUAL/DVRP ON/OFF switch, if the DVRP switch (below) is set to MANUAL. The other, side-to-side switch enables/disables the ON/OFF function of the top switch.
- DVRP: You can turn the MANUAL DVRP on/off via the DVRP ON/OFF switch. When the switch is OFF, the DRVP power is automatically supplied. When ON, use of the MANUAL DVRP ON/OFF switch controls the DVRP power.
- LEDs: The MPRD indicator LED is ON when MPRD power is ON (as a result of turning on the ECM). The DVRP indicator LED in ON to indicate the DVRP power to the ECM is ON.
- STOP (DG8): The STOP interface includes a top, vertical-direction LOW/PULL-UP, which connects directly to the E-STOP input to the ECM (the DG8 input acts as a STOP input on the 128-pin ECM). The other, side-to-side switch enables/disables the ON/OFF function of the top switch. The red jack allows connection of an external STOP input.
- XDRP A/B: The two XDRP jacks, A and B, each include a side-to-side ON/OFF switch, which turns the respective transducer power on/off.
- BATT: You can turn the battery power to the ECM on/off via the BATT ON/OFF switch.
- MPRD: You can turn the power to the main power relay driver on/off via the MPRD ON/OFF switch.
- LEDs: (see drawing above) The MPRD indicator LED is ON when MPRD power is ON (as a result of turning on the ECM). The DVRP indicator LED in ON to indicate the DVRP power to the ECM is ON.
- EST RTN: The EST RTN input provides connection to the EST return resource on the connected ECM. You can connect or disconnect the EST return to the ECM via the EST RTN ON/OFF switch.
- XDRG: You can connect or disconnect the transducer ground to the ECM via the XDRG ON/OFF switch.
- GROUND: You can connect or disconnect the power ground to the ECM via the GROUND ON/OFF switch.
- DVRG: You can connect or disconnect the driver ground to the ECM via the DVRG ON/OFF switch.
The Simulator supports connecting up to three CAN channels and an RS-485 channel. The jacks are located at the right side of the Simulator just below the junction box and above the harness connector. Each connection includes an OFF/ON switch to disable/enable the channel connection.
These outputs connect to your ECM output pins by designation and in order of resource number. Refer to the datasheet for your particular ECM for resources available. Depending on the resources of the particular ECM in use, some of the Simulator output jacks may not be in use.
- LEDs: The LEDs above the outputs show status; LEDs turn on green if a low-side output is active and set up as “low-side,” for example, and show red if the output is active as “high-side.”
- ON/OFF: You can turn the output on/off via the switch. When off, the yellow (top) jack is inactive; the monitor (gray) jack is usable with the switch in either the ON or OFF position.
- Output jacks: The top jack (yellow) of each output directly connects to the respective ECM output resource. Output characteristics of the respective ECM resource are thus conveyed.
The lower (gray) jacks are the respective voltage-level monitors only.
Labeled LSO1-LSO8, eight low-side outputs are located in the upper left corner of the Simulator.
Labeled INJ1-INJ12, twelve fuel injector outputs are located at the left side of the Simulator.
Labeled EST1-EST16, the 16 electronic spark timing outputs are located at the left side of the Simulator. Note: In order to see EST firing indications, turn the respective EST LED ON/OFF switch to OFF.
Labeled H1+, H1-, H2+, H2-, H3+ and H3-, the six H-bridge connections are located at the top center of the Simulator.
Analog/Digital Input Sections
Labeled Analog 1 through Analog 30, the analog inputs (switchable - On/Off) are located along the bottom of the simulator, together with dedicated potentiometer sliders, 0-5V. Note: To connect your own sensor, use the gray jack and switch the corresponding ON/OFF switch to OFF.
The Simulator supports up to seven digital inputs, labeled DG1-DG7. The jacks are located at top center of the Simulator.
The digital inputs each have a switch for setting input to low or pull-up, along with ON/OFF switches.
- LOW/PULL-UP: Switch input as needed for either pull-down or pull-up connection.
- Input jacks: The top jack (green) of each output directly connects to the respective ECM input resource.
- ON/OFF: You can turn the input on or off via the switch. When off, the green (top) jack is inactive; the monitor (gray) jack is usable with the switch in either the ON or OFF position.
Knock Sensor Inputs
Labeled Knock0 -/+ and Knock1 -/+, the four knock sensor connector jacks are located in the center of the Simulator. There are no associated switches or monitors; user must supply the knock input signal to the Simulator.
The four CAM and Crank inputs are located at the top of the Simulator, labeled CAM and DG CAM, and Crank+/-. There are no associated switches or monitors; user must supply the respective sensor input signal to the Simulator.
