In 2018 my family is exactly 100 years involved in cars.
With all this assembled experience, I decided to build standalone electronic add-on devices to be able to take cars under control.
I registered the name "KempoTronic" (= Kempynck + electronics) for these electronic devices.
Made in West-Flanders - Belgium :
These electronic devices, as well the hardware, software, wire looms, are invented, engineered, developed and produced completely here in-house, West-Flanders - Belgium.
Even the enclosures are 3D-printed in-house.
This big advantage makes it possible to give a direct technical support to our dealers. Moreover, it makes it possible to react quickly to your specific needs.
All the hardware components are particularly selected with automotive application approval, supporting wide temperature ranges and big vibrations.
We only use the best available hardware brands on the market, for the electronic components as well as for connectors, relays, fuses, wires etc...
For the moment, I have not the intention to produce complete universal engine management systems, but I want to produce standalone add-on devices which are able to control parts of the car, that are not supported by some or most management systems.
Depending on the application, the KempoTronic standalone devices will be able to :
- read and modify existing signals
- simulate signals
- drive different actuators
- test signals / actuators
- or any combinations of the points above
All applications will be ranged under what we call different main groups, standing for a specific application main goal and will be recognisable from the first 3 letters of the number.
Under each main group there will be many versions, like for universal use or a specific use, different operation modes and most of the time there will also be versions for older cars (->2000) as well as newer cars (2000->).
Because there are so many possible combinations from hardware, software and wire looms, we build everything on order, which can take up to +/-2 weeks.
Most applications are built for cars with a 12V main battery with negative ground, NOT for cars with a 6V main battery and NOT for cars with positive ground batteries.
Currently, I have 45 different main group projects in development and I will launch them one by one after they will have passed all severe tests.
The goal is to supply these devices to our professional dealers (workshops, service stations and tuners), because the installation needs some basic car electronics knowledge and some basic tools to be able to fit and tune these devices correctly. These professionals will also be able to update the devices with the latest software when necessary.
