SEMA 2011: AEM’s Infinity EMS System Redefines Standalones

One Fast Mover

The Infinity has the ability to process 400,000,000 thoughts per second.  By comparison, the fastest OEM ECUs are reportedly capable of only 125,000,000 thoughts per second with an average aftermarket ECU only capable of 50,000,000.

When it comes to monitoring and tuning high performance vehicles, you can never have enough sensors to ensure that every aspect of an engine is performing perfectly.  AEM Electronics is one of those companies that have been making standalones for over a decade, and they just released their baddest EMS ever – the Infinity-10.

At the heart of the Infinity-10 EMS are two powerful processors, with the primary MCU being a 200 MHz 32 bit piece and a 32 bit floating point with a math co-processor that helps translate the millions of instructions per second.

The Infinity user interface is custom made and was designed from the ground up.  It has been optimized for speed and performance with super high resolution 3D graphics, and features user-selectable control types for custom layouts.  Though if you adjust a tune that might be questionable, the Infinity has the ability to model and calculate your engine’s requirements in real time, letting you know if a potential problem is going to be created from erroneous adjustments.

Additionally, the EMS has no practical tooth resolution limit for determining ignition timing and continuously calculates engine acceleration in between the teeth’s edges to predict accurate firing locations, even under high compression cranking and acceleration rates. It can even adjust timing based on knock with its dual knock signal circuits built directly into the Infinity EMS.

AEM Infinity-10 Features:

• 126 pin motorsports quality harness with fully sealed automotive connectors
• Compatible with all factory and performance aftermarket sensors
• 12 peak and hold injector drivers
• 10 0-5 volt ignition inputs
• 23 analog inputs
• Flex fuel compensated – fuel, ignition, and boost
• Programmable traction control based on wheel speed or engine acceleration
