Renaultsport Clio 197 alternative lap beacon

The 2007 Clio race car developed by Renault Sport Technologies featured an integrated engine management controller and data logger by Magneti Marelli. The Marelli ECU doubles up as an engine controller and data logger. Information is displayed on the colour Magneti Marelli dashboard. The lap beacon receiver and 2 axis G sensor were supplied by the French company, XAP.

The XAP infrared beacon is an expensive purchase so we have come up with a simple alternative using reliable Aim hardware

The standard white Aim beacon can be used with a special Aim reciever. This combination works just like the XAP, getting lap times on the dash display and beacon signals to the data logger.

There are 3 main parts :

Beacon transmitter for the pit wall

Beacon reciever for the inside of the car

Wiring adapter to join the reciever to the car wiring.
