Phoenix C3

The Phoenix C3 is a compact, configurable, combustion analysis system ideally suited for in-vehicle testing, or any application with a low channel count. Representing the next generation in combustion analysis, the Phoenix C3 is configurable through any device with a web browser, eliminating the need for a laptop. Once it is configured, it runs automatically, requiring no babysitting. The Phoenix C3 also provides seamless integration with industry-standard ECU calibration tools, supports infinite streaming, and the large data storage capacity provides the ability to perform…

  • Real-time evaluation of the combustion process with immediate feedback for controls development
  • Ideal for in-vehicle applications
  • Available in 4, 8 and 12 high-speed channel configurations
  • Lightweight, portable packaging frees up valuable real estate
  • Stackable, screwless design eliminates need for tools
  • Seamless integration with industry-standard calibration tools (e.g. ETAS INCA, ATI VISION)
  • Headless operation does not require a connected PC to acquire and process data
