Tuning dilemma

OK guys, so for the past couple weeks Tom and I have been trying to tune my duri linking my wideband to my SCT Xcal3 then to the computer. The problem I am running into is this. We got my wideband to send an analog signal to SCT'S live link and it reads 7.38 on the datalogging software. When we open up analog equations and choose the innovate LC-1 from the scroll down list and apply changes it looks something like this in each analog box ((v*)+7.38). So that's what it comes up as when trying to data log. Tom is saying it should be up around 14. something. Does anyone know how to adjust or fix that problem so I can move forth in tuning? I am stumped and any help would be greatly appreciated. Also the wideband is calibrated and seems to be working properly.

Also I followed the sticky on how to connect the wideband to the SCT hanheld and the handheld is picking up the wideband but with the same problem (7.38). The numbers adjust a little bit but not much as compared to the digital display on the wideband itself.

Would help if you'd post exactly what LL says the analog equation is ... my version says it's (v*3)+7.35 for the Innovative LC-1.

If you're not using that wideband the equation will be different. For instance if you're using an AEM unit the equation will be (v*2)+10.

That's exactly what my analog equation says for the LC-1. My digital gage display reads 14.7 and fluctuates +- but when the analog is hooked up it just reads 7.35 fluctuating +- on the SCT live link datalogging software

I am using the innovate lc-1 and setting it up to use the lc-1 in analog equations but the gage and datalogging reading are not matching eachother

Is there possibly a sticky that showed in depth how to adjust analog equations for specific wideband setups to get the analog reading to match the gage display reading?

I have an Innovate LC-1. Sounds strange but I had to use (V*10)+.17 for mine in order to consistently match the LCD readout. That being said I haven't touched it for a LONG time and I'm going by what may be old notes.
Give that equation a shot.

Awesome. Thank you so much. Should I put that for all of the analog equations box's or just the analog I am using? (The 4 boxes under analog equations where you can change these numbers)

Eh sorry, it's been too long and I can't picture the screen in my head. If you can post a screenshot maybe I can help.

EDIT: Just the analog you are using.

This is a good walkthrough: http://www.innovatemotorsports.com/r..._tutorial2.php

Now that we're talking about this I feel like I need to check my LC-1 values!
