NEW: PowerControl X and RX with Smartphone App

The next generation of smart tuning from DTE Systems

DTE Systems sets technological standards in engine tuning with the newly developed PowerControl X and RX performance tuning boxes. The special feature: using an innovative technology platform, all engines can be optimized for the first time – from common-rail diesel to turbo petrol engine, hybrid up to the latest bi-turbo hybrids with analogue and digital SENT technology.

The PowerControl X-Series: New platform, more precise optimization

This is possible due to the completely redesigned technology platform of the PowerControl X-Series. “With our new and improved chip generation, we can achieve a signal processing up to 5 times more accurate,” explains Dr. Michael Krecek, CEO of DTE Systems. “The second generation of our multi-map technology now allows it to optimize up to nine channels,” adds Krecek.

PowerControl RX as tuning for high performance engines

Performance tuning boxes are the core business of the tuning manufacturer from Recklinghausen, with its own ECU development, module and cable production and an own vehicle tuning. With the tuning boxes, more power and torque of up to 30% are possible. The performance box PowerControl X also has its own efficiency program for fuel savings of up to 15%.

“The most powerful tuning in the DTE family is the new PowerControl RX. The additional control unit optimizes sports cars such as Mercedes AMG, BMW M, Audi RS, Porsche or Ferrari”, explains DTE head of development Detlefication with the new PowerControl smartphone app,” adds Strube.

Easy control, real time monitoring: the new PowerControl App

In addition to PowerControl’s keypad, which DTE introduced in 2014, the new DTE performance of PowerControl X and RX can now also be operated from the cockpit. The chip tuning’s extra power can be easily switched on or off with the smartphone. Simple wiping over the cell phone lets the driver change various programs depending on the driving situation: Sport, Dynamic and Efficiency.

A highlight of the PowerControl app are the performance instruments, which show all relevant performance data of the engine in real time. Displaying such data was previously only possible for premium sports car cockpits. The complete package of the PowerControl App also includes an innovative accelerometer that measures the g-forces applying to the vehicle. And using the integrated and configurable warm-up timer, drivers can decide how long warming up is needed before using the engine tuning form DTE.
