Lingenfelter NCC-002 Nitrous Control Center

Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has released its NCC-002 Nitrous Control Center, which doubles the solenoid driver capacity of the original NCC-001 controller for both nitrous and fuel outputs. Capable of driving up to 30 amps per channel, the Lingenfelter NCC-002 Nitrous Control Center is a two-stage fully independent progressive nitrous controller with on-board display, on-board and PC based programming and data logging. Designed for ease of use and access at the track, all settings and options available in the NCC-002 software program are also available on the controller itself. The NCC-002 offers independent control of both nitrous and fuel duty cycle for each stage of nitrous. It can be programmed far in advance of nitrous delivery to address lean spikes that often occur on initial nitrous activation. It also enables activation of deactivation of nitrous through a variety of inputs. The NCC-002 features enough internal memory to save three user-defined programs directly on the controller and an unlimited number of different programs can be saved on the user's personal computer. Adjustments can be made using a PC or via the on-board display and buttons, providing quick access should track conditions change requiring a different configuration. The NCC-002's inputs include engine speed, vehicle speed, TPS, clutch pedal position, air fuel ratio, fuel pressure, nitrous bottle pressure and more. Outputs include nitrous 1 & 2, fuel 1 & 2, relay 1 & 2, timer, shift light and analog voltage.
