This display unit will take a range of inputs and display fuel consumption, tank levels and totalised flow plus much more. Ideal for boats, yachts, generators, farm machinery and tractors, trucks and other vehicles.
This display unit will allow users to monitor fuel flowing to the engine as well as the fuel returning to the tank plus so much more. The display will take the input from a range of sensors and meters.
This display has so many uses and functions users will be amazed what it can do.The primary function is to monitor fuel usage to provide a fuel consumption in L/hr. If you're running a diesel engine with a return line to the fuel tank,this display will calculate the differential flow between flow meters and calculate the consumption in L/hr. Note flow meters are not included in this listing.
You can also wire into your existing OEM or aftermarket fuel tank level sensor to display the fuel level in up to two tanks. If your fuel tank is odd shaped and not linear, you can perform a multipoint calibration with up to 6 points providing very accurate tank level displays.If you don't have a fuel tank sender, manually enter your fuel tank volume and let the display unit calculate the remaining fuel based on your consumption.
Enter your vehicle or crafts cruising speed and the display will calculate your range based on your instantaneous fuel consumption and remaining fuel. This input is quick and easy allowing for regular adjustments whilst underway as your cruising speed changes.
If you have a NMEA enabled RS232 GPS receiver this can be connected to display your fuel range based on your speed and remaining tank level.
The display unit is a 2-1/4” sunlight readable LCD colour display designed for flush dash mounting. The display unit is not officially waterproof and installation should be within a cabin, wheelhouse or suitable weather proof enclosure. Whilst the display does not have a official IP rating for water and dust ingress, it has been built with an additional seal around the primary penetration being the rotary knob and the internal PCBs have been upgraded with conformal coating to prevent corrosion in marine environments.
Installation of this kit is straightforward and can be completed by those with an intermediate skill level. Installers should be confident in soldering wires for the electrical side.
A detailed instruction manual is supplied which covers all aspects of the installation and programming of the display unit.
