I just noticed in the Let manual that the calibra has one of these anyone know if its possible to hook a gauge up to this??


Cheers

you can splice in a gauge thats designed to work with the standard (presume bosch) sensor yeah. finding said sensor will be fun, but a proper engine tuner should know (do they still exist?)

maybe vaux can shed light on the bosch part number for it, then hopefully Tweeks or the like will know a gauge for it.

You need to find the voltage output range and match that up with a gauge that displays correclty with that range. TIS may shed some light on the voltage range, for example, fault finding somtimes they list out voltage ranges to look for when testing.

righto heres the gen ladies

nominal value (says @ idle & op temp)
10 to 80 degrees (50 to 176 far)
3.9 to 1.3v


test values are 15 to 30 degrees 1450 to 3300 ohms resistance.

can give more gen, but couldnt be bothered typing it all out lmao

as for temp range, it gives faults with shorts as -35 cel and 180 cel, presumably those are the 2 extremes

cool so a 0 to 100 degree gauge on roughly a 1 to 4 volt range then.


Is that from tis Rob??

naa mate, i just happened to know all that ;) lmao
also looking at it, the voltage decreases as temp increases, >4.9 was for -35 and <0.1 was for 180 degrees.
so you need to match the equivalent of -35 to 180 @ 0 to 5v
you could make an LED version yerself....or summat lmao

well my mbe has air intake temp control and adjustment :cool: so yeah. could ask SBD for the gen, tho they just use a standard bosch part, they will know the voltages (even if they dont tell you lmao)

Wonder if its the same part....hmmmm.

doubtless will be, hold on will look at easymaps voltage settings for it

this runs from -30 to 130 matey (min/max set on mine is -25/127 actually)

aaaand calibration....
0.00 is 130
0.31 is also 130...oooookaaaayyyy
0.63 is 106
1.25 is 75
1.56 is 65
1.88 is 58
2.19 is 48
2.50 is 40
2.81 is 35
3.13 is 30
3.44 is 22
3.75 is 12
4.06 is 5
4.38 is 0
4.69 is -5

extrapolating it should be the same part - the voltage range 0-5v is roughly -35 to 180 which looks familiar
