Log Manager is the app for HKS OB-LINK TYPE-001 and OB-LINK TYPE-FA20.
OB-LINK TYPE-001 and OB-LINK TYPE-FA20 have the memory function.
Log Manager can preset the logging data, extract the date, etc. using the memory of OB-LINK.
With Log Manager, the vehicle data are automatically logged in the memory of OB-LINK TYPE-001 and OB LINK TYPE-FA20.

When OB-LINK TYPE-001 and OB LINK TYPE-FA20 detects the IG-ON signal, logging automatically begins, and when the IG-OFF signal is detected, logging automatically stops.
Log data includes the following 5 accumulated data and vehicle's date set by Log Manager:
Accumulated Data: Driving distance, Fuel consumption, Maximum watertemperature, Maximum oil temperature, and Engine error code.
(Some of these items may not be detected depending on the vehicle.)
※ The time stamp of up to 20 engine error codes can be memorized when detecting error(s).
Log Manager selects the log data and establishes the sampling time interval.

Either of the following message appears:
" IG signal line is OK " = IG signal line exists.
" Please check the connection with the OB-LINK. The OB-LINK, You can connect from the Meter Views." = IG signal line does not exist.

2. Connect the IG Signal Line
If the IG signal line does not exist on the OBDII coupler, connection of the IG signal line is required.
※To connect the line, it should connect to the IG signal line or ACC signal line.
