1. ## SCT Livewire TS with NGK AFX wide band

99 Ford Lightning

I am trying to get my NGK AFX wide band to feed input to the SCT

I am uncertain if the formula (1.4*v) + 9 is what I should use.
How does one know if there is an offset to consider ? How can I check that ?

The formula above is also listed in the manual. However, when I contacted NGK the tech gave me 2 other formulas to try

(8.68*v) +10
and
(2+v)+10

Any tips on this would be greatly appreciated - it is a bit confusing

3. ## The correct formula is (V*1.4)+9

Use that, then if the display is reading differently than your SCT device, adjust the value after the + until you get it reading as close as possible.  Reply With Quote

USE Analog 7 in the Live Link software - Use the (1.4*v)+9 formula The cable chart says use analog 2 - incorrect  Reply With Quote

7. ## I know, an old post but this is the way the equation works.
You need to know what the NGK AFX wide band's min and max reading are. Then you can make the equation yourself.

Example 1, if minimum AXF gage A/F reads is "9". In the equation when the V(0 to 5volts)minimum=0. The constant in the equation is "9" and the SCT data will read A/F of 9.
Simply put, the constant is the minimum A/F the gage (9) will read because the V=0 at minimum.

Example 2, if the maximum AXF reads is "16". In the equation when the V(0 to 5 volts) maximum=5. The multiplier in the equation is 1.4 and the SCT data will read A/F of 16.
The "multiplier" is then calculated from the maximum A/F the gage will read (16) because the V=5 at maximum. (16-9)/5=1.4 is the multiplier.  Reply With Quote
