Remove your Trinity CD from the package, and install the drivers, the DSDownloader, and the Dataviewer software.

Do not plug the device into the USB cable until the driver has been installed.

Once you have successfully installed the Trinity drivers, you may plug the Trinity into the USB cable and plug it in to the computer.

Launch the DSDownloader from your desktop, and select Trinity, then click accept modifications, and the DSDownloader will search for and find your Trinity.

You may now register or update your Trinity.

To set up a shift light, create a layout or open one of our layouts (in logging) that has an RPM gauge in the display.
Click on the RPM gauge.
Select 'set shift light'.
Set the RPM you would like the shift light to activate, press enter.
You'll now select whether you want one (1) LED, all LEDs, or a progressive shift light.


Now, click record and your shift light will be activated.

If you close the layout, and save it, you can open it in monitoring and your Shift light will be there. [/b]

To set up an alarm for any gauge, go into logging and select the layout you wish to add an alarm(s) to.

Click onthe Gauge you'd like to set an alarm to.
Select set gauge alarm.
Set the value you would like the alarm to be triggered, press enter.
Select whether you want one (1) LED or all LEDs to light up for this alarm.
If you select one (1) LED, you will be prompted to select the color of the LED (Green, Yellow or Red), and if you select Red or Green, it will ask you to select Top (Red or Green) or Bottom (Red or Green) LED.

Click record and your alarm is now working.

If you close out this layout and save it, you will be able to open it in Monitoring and the alarms will be there.

To change the screen behind the gauges in the monitoring/logging sections, go to Options/Live Data Background

Click OK then select any of the backgrounds from the list. The first one listed, Circuit, is the default background, selecting any of the others will change the background when monitoring any of your layouts.

If you have an EGT and a Puck hooked up to your Trinity, you can set an alarm for the EGT temp and have the Trinity reduce the Pucks power output to 1/3 of its current level when the alarm is triggered.

In logging, click on the EGT gauge, and select Set Gauge Alarm.
Enter the value to trigger the alarm and select which LED to display the alarm.

You will then be asked if you would like to 'Enable Xpuck Output Reduction' YES/NO.

Once you choose yes, close and save the layout.

Select yes, and now anytime the EGT reaches your predetermined set point, the puck output will immediately be reduced to 1/3 of its previous power level, as long as you are logging/monitoring in this layout.

To convert display units from say kPa to PSI, open the layout in logging, click on the gauge, and select change display units.
It will tell you what units are currently displayed, and will tell you what alternative is available, to select that alternative choose yes.

That gauge will now display the alternative units.
