Functions description
4.1. Measure W
4.1.1. Manual

1. Check the track length.
Tachograph programmer CD400-1

Press F3 (OK) to go on, or press F1(MODIFY) to change
the track length.

Tachograph programmer CD400-2

to set the ‘Track length’, enter the new value and press ‘Ent’.

3. Press F3 (START) and drive the vehicule along the track
Tachograph programmer CD400-3

4. At the end of the track, press F3 (STOP).
Tachograph programmer CD400-4

The W factor will be calculated as a function of the pulse count and the
track length.

5. Press F3 (K FACTOR) to access K factor setting.

Tachograph programmer CD400-6

6. The closest value from the K factor
table of the 1318 is displayed with
the corresponding switches
Press ‘Esc’ to go back to main menu.

7. Present K factor will be read from the tachograph and displayed.
‘NEW K’ is the W factor that has been measured and should be recorded
as the new K factor.
Press F2 (YES) to
record it or F3 (NO) to leave it unchanged.

8. If ‘YES’ has been selected previously, the new K factor will be read
back from the tachograph.
This factor can modified manually if required pressing F3 (MODIFY).

4.1.2. Photo Sensor
The W measure with a photosensor is exactely the same as in manual mode, except that the ‘START’ and ‘STOP’
pulses are generated by the sensor. In photo sensor mode, the ‘F3’ (START & STOP) will not be active.
You can connect any photo sensor using a MiniDIN 4-pins connector connected to the left connector of the
– Shielding: Ground (GND 0V).
– Pin n°2: photo sensor signal (the signal should be low when the reference
object/reflector is not detected).

4.1.3. Rolling road.
[Under development]
4.1.4. Constant speed.
[Under development]

4.1.5. Draw-wire.
[Under development]

4.1.6. Odometer (only for digital tachographs).
[Under development]
Using the odometer parameter to measure the W factor does not require the workshop card.
Therefore, this function can be useful for transport companies or for the authorities.
The latest is calculated by measuring the distance driven by a vehicle when the high resolution odometer is
incremented by

4.2 Measure K
This function is available only for the K1314/1318 and the FTCO 1319.
Measuring the K factor takes a few seconds.
The value is updated every time the progress bar is completed.

4.3. Parameters
