BlackBox by Turbosmart is a dedicated Electronic Wastegate Controller which can be used in cooperation with a range of Factory, Aftermarket and Motorsport ECU’s. The BlackBox provides protection from the current demands and translation of basic as well as more advanced boost control strategies into a gate position and can be used on single, or twin electronic wastegate systems for the ultimate in boost control.
The BlackBox is a Dual Channel, High current Capable H-Bridge Driver for use with the Turbosmart range of Electronic External Wastegates, including the StraightGate50 as well as our Electronic poppet style gates including; CompGate40, HyperGate45, ProGate50 and PowerGate60 electronic Wastegates. The BlackBox is capable of multiple strategies and will accept PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) inputs as used for traditional boost control solenoids, 0-5v position target, CAN position target and CAN bus override for more advanced ECU’s where control strategy can be developed natively.
The Blackbox provides for auto-calibration of Electronic External Wastegates via a full sweep and includes over temp safety features using the temperature sensor inputs. The BlackBox is pre-configured with the flow vs. lifts calibration data of all Electronic Actuatuated Wastegates from Turbosmart for simple setup and accurate boost control. Settings can be adjusted via a simple USB connection and PC-based application, and unlimited control strategies can be implemented with the CAN-based override system where your strategy is limited only by your ECU’s capability.
