HOW TO: View FIC datalogs with AEMLog software

AEMLog is included in the free AEMPro EMS software, which can be downloaded here:

The instructions for AEMLog are named AEMLog Users Manual V1.01.pdf, and will be installed to the C:\Program Files\AEM\AEMPro\Instructions folder.

1. You will need to import your FIC's datalogs to view them in AEMLog. When using AEMLog, click File>>Import. Select your datalog and click OK (the FIC saves its logs as .txt files). A new window will open, be sure to select "Float Import" and then click OK.

2. If this is the first time you have used AEMLog, the Graph Setup window will open. Click the Overlays button to choose which channels to display on the screen.

3. Choose the channels you want to view from the list on the left. For this demo, we will display four channels on Plot Number 1: Throttle, Engine Load, AnalogA in, and Analog A out.

4. For this demo, we will display three channels on Plot Number 2: Engine Speed, UEGO, and Inj1 %.

5. By default, the software will open the file and automatically scale each channel so the minimum value is at the bottom of the Plot and the maximum value is at the top of the Plot. You can adjust this later.

6a. You might prefer to use a black background to make the channels easier to view. Open Config>>Options and change the colors to match the screen below. Click OK when you are finished.

6b: You might prefer to change the Y axis limits for each channel to make the log easier to view. Right-click the name of each channel and select Set Y-axis Limits. You can use different limits for each channel. Try these to start:

Throttle: min -100 / max 110
Engine Load: -100 / 100
Analog A In: 0 / 10
Analog A Out: 0 / 10

Engine Speed: 0 / 10000
UEGO: -5 / 20
Inj 1 % 0 / 200

7. You can save these screen settings to a Template for future use. Select Templates>>Save

8. To auto-load the Template you just saved, open Templates>> Configure. Click Browse and select your new template.

9. Open a new datalog, and the Template will automatically display the channels and y-axis settings used in your Template.
