Engine Temperature Alarms – For Piece Of Mind
We are seeing an increasing call for aftermarket engine temperature monitors and alarms, this is because of two reasons.
1. More vehicles are being released that don’t have a traditional temperature gauge on the dashboard. Manufacturers are replacing temperature gauges with warning lights on the dashboard if the engine gets too hot. Often by the time the light is triggered, or indeed seen by the driver, the damage is already done and you could be up for expensive head gasket replacements or engine repairs.
2. Cheap piece of mind. Everyone is busy these days with a million things on your mind as you drive from place to place, meaning sometimes small warning lights on the dashboard go unnoticed. The TM1 unit not only gives you a real-time display of engine temperature, but it also sounds an alarm when the engine temperature starts to climb to unsafe levels,
((( Audible))) Engine Temperature Alarm
Real time engine temperature monitoring
Suitable for all Cars, Trucks, Boats, Bikes, Tractors & Machinery
Now also records the highest engine temperature reached
Accurately displays engine temperature and alarms with a Warning light, Loud buzzer & Display messages if engine is overheating
The TM1 is ideal for alarming Engines, Gear boxes, Transmissions, Transfer boxes, Pumps, in fact any thing that operates between 1 to 125 degrees Celsius.
Takes temperature readings from the metal rather than the water, so if you run out of water you still get an accurate temperature reading
The unit has a neutral white LCD screen with an automatic backlight so it blends into both old and new dashboards. It displays big numbers that are easy to read in either bright sunshine or at night. All functions and alarms are accompanied by individual display messages, including advanced messages such as ‘Sensor Not Connected’ should the sensor cable be cut.
The sensor fits like a washer under any convenient bolt on the engine that is near the heat source, here it rapidly detects the slightest changes in engine temperature. The device is monitoring metal temperature rather than water temperature. The warning alarm sensitivity can be set to suit your individual engine and needs.
The alarm is set by either observing the engines highest normal running temperature or interrogating the Highest Temperature Reached function. Then the alarm is set to a higher temperature by using the push button on the front. Typically the alarm is set to between 5 and 10 degrees above the engines normal running temperature, this usually equates to the warning buzzer sounding at just one or two needle widths above the normal mark on most car temperature gauges.
Because you’re not breaking into the cooling system, the TM1 is the quickest, easiest and safest system on the market. Setting the unit correctly is critical to the performance of the unit. Contact Southside Cylinder Heads about fitting a unit in your vehicle today, it could just save you thousands.
