CORREVIT® LFII P Sensor
User Manual
1. Overview
CORREVIT® LFII P
Non-Contact Optical
Sensor
for
slip-free measurement of
vehicle speed and distance
Art. No.
LFII P Sensor
14395
The new CORREVIT® LFII P Optical Sensor represents yet another a major step forward in the advancement of optical measurement technology. Based on the
Formula-1 proven CORREVIT® SF Sensor, the LFII P Sensor is even smaller and
lighter than the compact SF model.
The further miniaturization of the exceptionally lightweight LFII P Sensor enables
mounting positions -such as under the vehicle - that were virtually unimaginable until
now. Long-life, vibration-resistant infrared LED illumination and digital filters with
advanced DSP technology provide improved performance, even under harsh environmental conditions.
For connection to any current data acquisition system, the LFII P Sensor is equipped
with analog (0...10V) and digital outputs, as well as CAN Bus, RS232, and USB for
high-speed data transfer.
A protective optical-glass lens prevents damage to the optics and the illumination
source. The lens is optimized to the wavelength of the LED illumination source, and
can be easily replaced without use of special tools.

4.3 Mounting Instructions
4.3.1 Suction Mounting Unit
1. Pre-assemble the CORRSYS-DATRON Suction Mounting
Unit (Art.No. 13990) as shown in Fig. 1.1.
Fig. 1.1
2. Position the Suction Mounting Unit parallel to the vehicle
body (e.g. at the driver-side door), as shown in Fig. 2.1.
To assure proper function of the suction holders, the
mounting area must be free of grease, oil, dust and other
contaminants. For this reason it its necessary to clean the
painted surface in the mounting area before attaching the
suction holders. Do not use cleaning products that leave
residue of any kind on the surface.
Fig. 2.1
3. Adjust the Mounting Unit perpendicular to the ground:
- Loosen the black levers at each suction holder so that
the suction holder brackets slide freely.
- Position the Mounting Unit so that is perpendicular to
the ground (vertical).
- Re-tighten both levers.

4. When the Mounting Unit is correctly positioned, press the
suction holders - one after the other - firmly against the
vehicle body to flatten the rubber pads against the body
surface. Then, fold the grey levers toward suction
holders to produce a vacuum, which will secure the
suction holders to the vehicle body.
When producing the vacuum, you will feel a distinct
resistance. If the suction created is not sufficient to
secure the holder(s), check to be certain that the
mounting surface is clean.
Always inspect the Suction Mounting Unit before
use. Special attention should be paid to the
condition of the rubber suction pads, which must
be absolutely intact. Replace damaged pads
immediately.
Fig. 4.1
Use of a safety line is recommended.
5. Measure the sensor mounting height to be sure that the
sensor is within the specified vertical operating range of
200 ±70 mm (see pages 9 and 12). This distance is measured from the bottom of the sensor body to the road or
track surface. NOTE: The bottom of the heat sink/sensor
mounting plate will be flush with the bottom surface of the
sensor, so the mounting height can be measured from the
bottom surface of the heat sink/sensor mounting plate.
If the sensor is not within the specified vertical operating
range, loosen the black levers at each suction holder and
slide the vertical mounting rod up or down, as required,
then re-tighten both levers.
Fig. 5.1
If additional adjustment is required, fold the grey levers on
the suction holders down to release suction, then remove
the suction holders from the vehicle body by pulling the
black tab on each holder. Reposition the Mounting Unit so
that the mounting height is correct, then proceed with the
mounting procedure described in Step 3 (page 12).
6. Insert the included sensor mounting screws through the
mounting holes in the sensor, then into the mounting holes
in the heat sink/mounting plate and tighten the screws.

4. Measure the sensor mounting height to be sure that the sensor
is within the specified vertical operating range of 200 ± 70 mm
(see pages 9 and 12). This distance is measured from the bottom of the sensor body to the road or track surface.
NOTE: The bottom of the heat sink/sensor mounting plate will
be flush with the bottom surface of the sensor, so the mounting
height can be measured from the bottom surface of the heat
sink/sensor mounting plate.
If the sensor is not within the specified vertical operating range,
loosen the black levers at each magnetic holder and slide the
vertical mounting rod up or down, as required, then re-tighten
both levers.
If additional adjustment is required, release the magnetic plates
by pulling them away from the vehicle with the black handles.

8. To assure proper function of the suction holders, the
mounting area must be free of grease, oil, dust and other
contaminants. For this reason it its necessary to clean the
painted surface in the mounting area before attaching the
suction holders. Do not use cleaning products that leave
residue of any kind on the surface. Place the suction
holders firmly against the vehicle fender and latch the
suction holder lock handles (latched position is
approximately parallel to vehicle fender surface).

14.Measure the sensor mounting height to be sure that the
sensor is within the specified vertical operating range of
200 ± 70 mm (see pages 9 and 12). This distance is
measured from the bottom of the sensor body to the road
or track surface. If the sensor is not within the specified
vertical operating range, first loosen the screws and
move the sensor up or down, as required, in the
channels on the mounting plate and measure again.
If this adjustment is insufficient, remove the mounting
plate from the retainer clamp using an allen wrench.
Move the plate up or down as required and
re-attach the plate to the mounting plate, then securely
re-mount the sensor to the mounting plate.

15.Connect the signal cable to the sensor, then wind the
cable loosely around the torsion bar.
WARNING: Be sure to leave enough slack in the
cable to allow for full-lock steering changes, but
use caution to assure that the cable is not wound
Danger too loosely around the torsion bar. Under no
circumstances should the cable be loose enough
to touch the tire or to be pulled under the fender
during testing. Either circumstance would
inevitably result in damage to the equipment and
could also cause an accident.
Finally, connect the cable to data acquisition.

5. Troubleshooting
When troubleshooting the CORREVIT® LFII P
begin by checking the following:
Cables and power supply
• Check all connections to determine that each is complete and that the system is connected to
a power supply that provides voltage output within the specified range.
• Check to determine that the correct cables have been used for all connections.
• The following problems can be caused by incorrect or incomplete cable connections and/or
connection to incorrect power supply voltage:
- Output signals are not available to data acquisition and/or connected PC.
- A sensor will not go out of standstill mode with vehicle motion.
Status LED’s on sensor electronic boxes
• If all connections are correct and no faults are present, the green "ST" (standstill) LED will be
illuminated.
• If the Sensor is in Standstill and the "ST" LED is not illuminated, polarity has been reversed and
must be corrected.
Operating range
If a sensor is mounted out of the recommended height range (standoff distance), it may not go out of
standstill mode with vehicle motion, and no measurement signals will be output. Check and correct
mounting as necessary.
Sensor lens
The sensor lens (located on the underside of the sensor housing) may occasionally become dirty,
preventing proper operation. Check and clean the sensor lens regularly.
Software
If one or more output signals appear to be incorrect, the sensor may have been set-up incorrectly via
CeCalWin Software. Check all relevant settings in CeCalWin:
- Check calibration factor
Environmental conditions
The sensor may occasionally interpret heavy spray from snow or water as part of the road or track surface, producing unexplained spikes in the output signals and/or other anomalous measurement
artifacts. Sensors should be mounted away from the heaviest spray areas, especially directly behind
the rear wheels.
Electromagnetic interference
If the sensor starts to send output signals without vehicle motion, triggering may have been caused by
excessive electromagnetic interference from the test vehicle. To correct this condition, reset the sensor
by disconnecting from power and then re-connecting, or by switching power off and then back on at
the power distribution box. If the condition persists, disconnect sensor from vehicle ground and isolate
it at all mounting points.
If none of the above recommendations provides a solution, you may wish
to contact CORRSYS-DATRON. Before doing so, please be ready to supply
the following:
• A .ccw file saved from CeCalWin software to serve as an example of the problem or fault
condition.
• A list of all outputs that appear to be problematic, i.e. CAN, RS-232.
• The serial numbers of all relevant components.
