Famous for their performance car gauges, Speedhut continually strives to stay ahead of the competition with innovative design and solid engineering, all while manufacturing all of their tachometers in the USA at their in-house facility. Their latest announcement confirms the expansion of their tachometer lines to the largest in the company's history.
Founder Aaron Westberg comments."We sell directly to performance enthusiasts and many OEMs all over the world. Our engineering team and production team work closely together to ensure quality throughout the gauge manufacturing process." Excitedly, Aaron exclaims, "Because our aftermarket tachometer development and production is all done at the same location, we have the ability to quickly meet our customers' needs with a price much lower than our competition."
There are many different electrical designs for current tachometers on the market. Most of these designs rely on a combination of resistors and capacitors to condition the signal so the tachometer hardware chip can accurately read the signal coming into it. Although this design works quite well for many applications, it falls short if the signal amplitude drops below certain voltage thresholds. Usually this threshold is around 12 volts.
Newer ignitions on the market today, like "Coil on Plug" type, tend to have a cut-off threshold voltage that is above the trigger voltage of the coil, and therefore the tachometer does not see the input tachometer signal.
Gauge manufactures have tried to get around this by requiring customers to purchase a tachometer adapter box that will read these lower voltages from the coils and convert it to a 12-volt pulse the tachometer can then read. This requires an additional purchase for customers, which is quite inconvenient.
All of our Speedometer's tachometers use their "Smart Pulse" technology. This exclusive technology was developed by Speedhut's engineering team to remedy low voltage situations. Speedhut's tachometers do not require a tachometer adapter box. They accomplish this through a combination of hardware and software filtering that samples tachometer signals over 100,000 times a second!
Speedhut's software algorithms within gauge microprocessors determine how much dynamic filtering is needed for a given tachometer signal, giving the user the most accurate and stable RPM readings of any tachometer. This allows the tachometer signal to work with an extremely wide variety of RPM signals, ranging from 1 volt to 600 volts in amplitude. Since waves, pulse waves, square waves, etc. are all easily interpolated with Speedhut's 'Smart Pulse' technology, the company is confident that they offer the most flexible, custom tachometers on the market. Mr. Westberg elaborates, "We're confident that our tachometers will work with any ignition system, from the single coil mechanical points to 'Coil on Plug' newer styles."
Speedhut's list of available tachometers is extremely diversified and starts with their branded tachometer lines.
Legacy tachometers works with both distributor and distributor-less ignitions. They're popular among automotive enthusiasts because they do not require any costly, expensive adapters.
Revolution tachometers are a consumer favorite due to their internal shift-light. They also work with both distributor and distributor-less ignitions without requiring any special, costly tach adapters.
Diesel (Hertz) tachometer are a must-have for diesel engine enthusiasts. In order to use this tachometer, either an "'R" or "W" terminal, a crank sensor signal, or a magnetic pulse sensor is required. The diesel tachometer will read any signal greater than 0.6 volts in any wave form pattern generated from a tach signal source. Other features include the following.
Freedom CAN-BUS tachometer have made aftermarket tachometer installation easier! The CAN-bus tachometer wires directly into the OBDII diagnostic connector. This tachometer uses the vehicle's ECU using the CAN (SAE J1979) protocol.
Plug and Play connection to OBDII connector
Available with or without an Internal Shift-light
Ford GT tachometers are specifically designed for the 2005 to 2006 Ford GT sports car. Direct plug-n-play to the Ford wiring harness makes installation easy and requires no additional sensors or wiring. Speedhut also offers settable shift-lights and RPM peak recall versions.
Speedhut utilizes precision surface mount technology and microprocessor-controlled gauge movements. A high torque digital stepper-motor gauge movement drives gauge pointers. The stepper motor isn't phased by temperature or vibration extremes like many mechanical and 90 degree gauges can suffer from. Each of Speedhut's tachometers are then assembled in an extremely shallow instrument case, allowing easy-on-the-knuckles mounting in instrument panels, and every gauge is rigorously tested before being sold. This allows Speedhut to confidently offer a lifetime guarantee on each gauge.
