Longacre 'AccuTech™ 'Stepper Motor' Racing Gauges...The next generation in instrumentation
SMi™ Stepper motor gauges use a small electronic motor that only turns a tiny fraction of a rotation to drive the pointer. It is electronically controlled and is much more precise than the traditional mechanical instruments whose accuracy can be affected by many factors. Many professional race teams - NASCAR™, etc. are switching to this style of gauge for the improved accuracy. Approved for use byIMCA™.
Built-in Warning Lights Ultra Bright 2 Stage LED
2 set points are easily adjusted to your needs (critical oil pressure has 3 set points). For example set water temp for just above normal running temp (if you run 215° set it at 230°). Above that the LED comes on to let you know the motor is starting to get warm. Set the second one at the max temp your engine can tolerate (say 250°). At this point the LED flashes to attract your attention, possibly saving motor damage.
Since oil pressure is so critical it has 3 set points.
You can set the first just below normal running pressure (say normal is 60 psi set it at 50 psi no damage there). At this point the LED comes on. Set the second at 35 psi. The LED flashes you need to know here, possible damage. Set the third at 20 psi. Engine damage is likely here. At this third set point the LED continues to flash PLUS the gauge backlight starts to flash. Its hard to miss this day or night. It allows you to get the engine shut down before it blows up, saving you $$.
Gauges are 2-5/8 and have a molded polycarbonate / ABS case (virtually unbreakable)
An electronic sensor (incl.) is installed on the motor to drive the gauge - no oil or fuel in the drivers compartment for safety.
Thru-the-dial LED backlights and an illuminated pointer make these easy to read at any speed
Presentation at turn-on - Gauges go through a self test. Pointers swing full scale and all LEDs come on
Quick & simple to install - Connect power to one gauge and daisy chain the others to it (wiring included). Connect the sensor wire and youre done
Can be used with 12 & 16 Volt negative ground systems
NOTE: These electronic gauges are not intended to be waterproof. Cover the gauges if the car interior is to be washed down.
Modular Composite Panel
Build Your Own Panel - the way you want it
Here's a different way that gives you flexibility in laying out your gauges. These individual 'modular' panels can be arranged any way you like and are easily connected by just plugging in the wiring included. The panels are lightweight molded ABS with a carbon fiber pattern and really look great. Build your custom panel with any combination of gauges, as many as you need, with or without a tach.
