NEW QUICK SHIFT SYSTEM WITH DYNAMIC CUT-OFF TIME MANAGEMENT
PER ENGINE RPM
IONIC NRG-K enables the driver to engage the gears without using the clutch
and when the throttle is completely open.
The advantage for the driver results in extremely short shift times, but above all in perfectly keeping the motorbike attitude in acceleration at the exit of corners since no pitch and loss of traction is triggered by the closing and reopening of the throttle.
The sensor can be easily installed on the gearbox rod and it is directly connected to the small central unit that can be easily installed and adjusted.
At any shift of gears, the lever is subject to the energy of the driver’s action. The sensor constantly conveys the energy of the stress it is subjected to the central unit that will power off the engine for some milliseconds (typically 40-50) after having reached the value set up by the user.
The short power off time is enough to engage the gears while keeping the throttle completely open without acting on the clutch.
The dynamic engine RPM management is based on a software algorithm which automatically adjusts the cut-off time, this allows to obtain optimum smoothness at low RPM with the maximum precision and shifting speed at high RPM.
The system inhibits the intervention below 3000 RPM (value adjustable by user) to avoid undesired engine stopping in low speed or idle maneuvers.
PROTECTED BY STARLANE WITH 2 PCT INTERNATIONAL PATENTS.
IONIC NRG-K uses the new NRG sensor, which is the result of Starlane’s 13-year experience in conceiving and accomplishing solutions intended to detect the shift of gears, which has induced important Italian motorcycle industries, as leaders in the World Superbike Championship, to use Starlane shift sensors on their own official motorbikes.
The miniaturised NRG sensor is intended to detect not only the simple shift, but a signal proportional to the intensity of the driver’s action on the lever and pattern rod. This solution can provide for an extremely valid and accurate system without fastening to the engine or the chassis any counterpiece or spring adding troublesome clearances to the leverage.
This means that it is not sensitive to the lever vibrations and oscillations due to the asphalt roughness as well as to the lever shift due to the involuntary action of the driver.
This result can not be achieved by the common systems on the market, which detect the simple lever shift by means of linear sensors or complete with a microswitch because characterised by a very low accuracy level.
The sensor is built without movable parts. It is not subject to any wear effect.
The NRG sensor is shaped (washer shape) and sized (small-size) in such a way that it can be installed in just a few seconds without mechanically changing its original members. This makes it completely universal.
IONIC NRG-K requires no mechanical setup!
