This new product converts OBD2 data to scaled 0-5v signals mainly to be used to drive standard analog gauges such as Autometer, Glowshift, etc. These can be any gauge that accepts a 0-5v input from a sensor. Also, any device that accepts 0-5v signals for any datalogging or to control something can use this as well. There are 2 channels so 2 parameters can be converted. In the pic below I and using the OBD2 boost and intake air temp parameter to drive these analog gauges mounted in our dual dash pod. The GaugeDrive uses a 12 bit conversion so any errors will be dwarfed by the inaccuracies of the OEM sensors or the gauge that is chosen. For example, the converted 0-5v signal for the IAT OBD2 parameter is accurate to 0.07 degrees F. The gauge obviously has no where near that accuracy. Another possible parameter to be converted is A/F ratio allowing you to have a AFR gauge without needing to install a wideband kit.



Cost is $159 for the 2 channel unit.

Thanks guys. The dual channel "GaugeDrive" and the dual dash pod are sold separately on our website (actually the GaugeDrive will be added within the week). Choosing gauges will be up to you. One thing to keep in mind, if you choose a temperature gauge it must have a voltage input, which is why I am using the Speedhut gauge shown. You can configure them in any way you want making them very flexible. All other types of gauges, such as pressure or AFR are typically 0-5v inputs so there are no issues there, but always check the specs to be sure before ordering. Autometer, Glowshift, prosport, Tanabe, etc. are compatible.

Ordering the GaugeDrive will go like this: there will be a limited number of OBD2 parameters, that we feel would be the most popular, such as boost, AFR, coolant temp, IAT, among a few others. After deciding what gauges you want to use, you'll select the configuration of the GaugeDrive that you need. This will include the OBD2 parameter, and output calibration for each. For example, you have decided on brand "x" gauges, one for boost and one for AFR. The boost gauge has a scale of -30 to +30 psi, the AFR gauge has a 5-20 AFR scale and 0-5v input. You will tell us this when you order and we will program the unit for this configuration. Installing the gauges will be similar to a normal gauge install except that there will not be the hassle of installing the sensor and running wires into the car. Everything will be done under the dash. The GaugeDrive connects to the OBD2 port, you'll need switched 12v and ground for it as well as your gauges. The output of the GaugeDrive will connect to the gauges similar to a sensor.
