KPower 3.0.9 is a software that is shipped with all of our VCDS diagnostic systems and the OBD2 Diagnostic Kit as full version. It allows to calculate power (DIN70200), torque and G-factor of a vehicle. Every VCDS (VAG-COM) distribution / diagnostic software with suitable data logging capability can be used with this software.
If you do not have a diagnostic system yet, the easiest way is to purchase our OBD2 Diagnostic Kit which includes KPower.
The program calculates horse power and torque graphs from vehicle weight and speed / rpm data that have to be logged during a driving cycle. You can download the manual here.
This driving cycle consists of an acceleration and a deceleration phase, through which acceleration horse power and towage horse power of the vehicle are measured. This data is then used to calculate the engines horse power and torque as well as the G-factor of the vehicle.
Depending mostly on the street (steady, at least 300m are recommended) and the intelligence of the driver, less than +/- 5% measurement uncertainty are expectable.
A button for direct data import from KOBD2Check/VAG-COM/VCDS/DashDAQ/OBD2 allows easy use of the application.
Other data sources are supported through CSV file import and an interface for Microsoft Excel: the following data triples must be given: timestamp, vehicle speed and engine rpm.
The calculated power graphs can be printed and saved as bitmap file. The data rows of the single vehicle can be saved / loaded.
The license covers all your computers (max. 10), software updates are included.
System requirements: KOBD2Check, VCDS (VAG-COM), DashDAQ or another suitable system for data logging (vehicle speed, engine rpm, timestamp), Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 or 10.
