The FTDI number is a unique 8-digit number (digit and capital letters).

If you contact us – in most topics – we will always ask you – what is your FTDI number. This information will allow us to give quickly and efficiently answers or resolve problems. Thanks to FTDI, the interface can be also a key unlocking the MaxiEcu software,. For some time now – the FTDI number is also a login to the Client Account on the www.maxiecu.eu website.
