PRI 2011: Auto Meter’s Next-Gen DL Playback Tachometers
They’re the closest thing a guy is going to get to a data acquisition system without actually buying one.
Here at PRI, Auto Meter has a number of new products on display that have garnered plenty of attention from attendees, and one of those is their new, next generation DL Playback Tachometers, which introduce the iconic brand’s latest and greatest in playback tech technology.
These new gauges offer engine and driveshaft RPM monitoring, pressure sensor, wideband air/fuel ratio have an internal three-axis G-meter. These feature Data Logger functionality, with enough memory to store six runs worth of data, 2-3 minutes of recording time, and offer the ease of a USB download to your laptop for viewing via the supplied DataPro software, or right on the digital readout on the face of the gauge. On the pressure side, they offer ranges of 15, 30, 60, 100, 200, 300, and 1600 psi.
Auto Meter’s target for these new gauges has been keeping the costs as low as possible while maintaining a number of playback and data logging features. These are expected to be a big hit with the drag racing market.
Said Auto Meter’s Joseph Mills, ” These tachometers are very affordable; essentially the poor man’s data logger. They’re the closest thing a guy is going to get to a data acquisition system without actually buying one.”
