MONITOR WHAT MATTERS
REDARC offers a range of gauges to monitor critical engine components
When it comes to monitoring critical engine components like oil level and battery voltage, we rely heavily on warning devices to let us know when things have gone wrong.
However, aside from engine temperature, most vehicles tell you very little information about their vitals until the situation is critical.
Monitoring the vitals in a vehicle is more than just useful, it’s critical, especially when vehicles have been modified from standard.
Gauges not only provide your customers with the peace of mind that all is fine, but when things are going wrong, they have all the information to help find a solution – your customers know all their vitals and it is easier to see where things have gone wrong or what may not be functioning as expected.
For example, when it comes to battery voltages, your customers can easily see the vehicle charging system is performing as it should, as well as get an indication of the auxiliary batteries health and maybe even the amount of power going into or out of it at any given time.
However, if they see the battery voltage is looking good but the fridge temp is on the rise, you will know to investigate their fridge and its connections.
Or if their start battery voltage is dropping below 12V when the vehicle is off, it’s time to check the battery and charging system.
Likewise, monitoring other vehicle system temperatures can allude to issues before they cause major damage.
Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT) is directly related to combustion temperature within the engine and monitoring this gives your customers the heads up that they need to be backing off the pedal when things get too heated.
Along with EGT, boost pressure is commonly measured to identify when there is a leak in the intercooler or turbo plumbing, it may help your customers work out why your work horse feels more like a work pony.
Whether it’s monitoring the vitals for performance, reliability, or comfort, REDARC explains that its range of 52mm gauges not only measure temperatures, pressures, voltages and current flow, but the sleek pod style units enhance the look of a vehicle.
You can even set them up to alarm and warn your customers when the measured factors are getting too extreme – before it’s too late.
