Binary Editor is a flexible software package that allows real-time tuning and datalogging when paired with the Moates QuarterHorse. While Binary Editor can support a very wide range of vehicles, "out of the box" it only supports a few select strategy definitions: GUFB/GUFA/GUF1 (89-93 Fox Body MAF), CBAZA (94-95 Mustang V8), LA, LA3, LUX0 (86-87 Speed Density Mustang), PE. While not sold through Moates,additional vehicle support is available commercially through third parties such as Core Tuning
and Derek Fenwick
. Binary Editor can talk to a wide range of hardware beyond Moates products such as widebands and 3rd party dataloggers. While not sold through Moates, support for J2534 flashing also additionally available from Core Tuning. Bottom line:
If you do not have one of the strategies listed here, you should contact us before making a purchase to ensure your vehicle is supported.
Binary Editor is licensed in two ways. The "standard" version is locked to a single PC. After purchase, download and install it and follow the registration procedure in the software. Please be warned: BE's author will not re-issue a license to a different machine in the future without an additional charge. If you would like the ability to use BE on more than one PC, purchase the dongle option ($71 extra) which is a USB hardware security module allowing you to use Binary Editor software on any PCs while the dongle is connected. There is no registration with the dongle - the physical dongle contains your registration. Note: the dongle version is also required to use some advanced features, such as J2534 flashing and database definitions.
EEC Analyzer ($55 extra) is a standalone program to help you analyze and sort through the data obtained by Binary Editor while connected to a vehicle logging. Although not strictly required, EEC analyzer helps make sense of the often overwhelming amount of data the software can gather. You could perform almost all of its functions in Excel or another statistical analysis program if you knew how to set it up. EEC Analyzer provides a core set of log analysis tools for those who aren't comfortable doing this kind of data analysis on their own.
