vGauge-Remote is a multi-function digital instrument sensor box that replaces mechanical instruments and gauges  in automotive/RV and boat electronics applications. Now get digital instrumentation display of a variety of performance parameters such as TACHOMETER, RPM, OIL PRESSURE, ENGINE TEMPERATURE, TRANSMISSION PRESSURE, BOOST PRESSURE, O2, FUEL PRESSURE, FUEL LEVEL, VOLTMETER, MAIN and AUXILIARY BATTERY,  and much more all in a compact sealed design. vGauge-Remote will replace existing instruments and gauges on most vehicles without having to rewire or replace sensors. Uses Bluetooth technology and NMEA 0183 formats to transmit gauge readings to remote displays, laptops and PDA's.

vGauge-Remote is based on advanced microprocessor design that combines data acquisition and USB interfaces to collect and transmit sensor data to remote display and storage units. Mount  vGauge-Remote near in then engine bay and attach sensors directly to built-in terminal panels. Up to three USB ports then transmit real-time instrument data to remote display heads or a PC/Laptop using small diameter USB cables. For wireless option, purchase the USB based Bluetooth module and view gauge readings up to 300 feet away.

vGauge-Remote  is ideal for custom engine applications where display of tachometer, engine temperature, oil pressure, fuel tanks, and voltage for each engine is accomplished one compact unit. Additional screens can be added in multiple locations to show transmission fluid temperature and pressures, turbo boost pressures, fuel pump pressures, and much more - all with a single USB cable. An optional serial-to-USB interface module allows displays to be located several hundred feet away using standard CAT5 networking cable

vGauge-Remote  microprocessor control and reprogrammable memory will allow you to create up to 16 custom instruments by using user-defined sensor calibration tables. This unique feature allows you to custom design to match your vehicle instrumentation system using the supplied vDash application.

vGauge-Remote can transmit gauge readings via built-in USB ports or wireless Bluetooth connections to your laptop or PDA for real-time display and data logging. NMEA 0183 integrated instrumentation sentences ($IIXDR) ensure compatibility with on-board equipment. Gauge readings can be transmitted and displayed on other NMEA 0183 devices. vGauge can also decode and display NMEA 0183 sentences such as depth and GPS information. Bluetooth wireless connectivity allows a laptop or PDA to receive data up to 300 feet away. Optional software for personal computer or PDA (PocketPC 2003) is available for display and real-time data capture. The Bluetooth wireless capabilities allows the unit to be installed in the engine room while display heads can mounted at multiple locations without running additional wires.

vGauge-Remote can be programmed to match you existing sensors/senders. Simply attach to a computer or PDA via USB cable or wireless ports - and download a text file to recalibrate using supplied vDash program. All display values are user programmable by typing values in any text editor and downloading to the device. Unit can be upgraded in the field without removing from the dash. No matter what your current sender/sensors are currently installed - vGauge can adapt.

vGauge-Remote utilizes a ABS plastic case and conformal PCB coating to resist moisture and corrosion. Built-in terminal blocks accept standard 0.25" terminal lugs to provide secure connections for all sensors.  vGauge-Remote is available in a sealed plastic case with water-resist quick-connect sensor cable harness or as a open frame enclosure with terminal post sensor wire connections.  vGauge-Remote can be mounted on any engine bay and take the punishment. Extensive testing in harsh environments has proven durability and function.

vGauge-Remote is compact in size, big on function. Up to three tachometer or speedometer inputs will interface directly to most engine pickups (Inductive, spark coil, alternator, VDO generator, and more). Two integrated K-type thermocouple inputs provide direct connection to Exhaust Gas (EGT) and Cylinder Head (CHT) temperature probes. An additional ten analog inputs can be used for a variety of instruments including temperature, pressures, Boost, wide-band 02, voltage, Amps, and much more.

vGauge-Remote includes built-in data logging directly to USB memory stick or attached PC/Laptop. All 16 instrument parameters including user defined labels and time tags are written directly to attached memory device at programmed intervals from twice per second to once per hour. A typical 4G byte memory stick can hold up to three months of continuous data logging.

vGauge-Remote interfaces directly to optional vGauge Display heads to provide a complete instrumentation system with the ability to easily position displays in multiple locations. Optional USB to Serial modules can drive up to three separate display heads several hundred feet away. vGauge-Remote supplies power to each display so all that is needed is to run a single small diameter USB or CAT5 network cable.

vGauge-G12 has been used in a variety of marine/automotive/and industrial applications to replace larger mechanical gauges in a fraction of the space while providing improved accuracy made possible by digital instrumentation. Unlike mechanical instruments, vGauge-Remote is not affected by vibration and the elements and can be easily installed in tough environment Checkout our installation page to see how others have upgraded their boat dash with the  vGauge and the SeaSwitch

vGauge-Remote is ideal for any automotive or RV application where space is at a minimum and exposed to the elements. Transform your dash into the digital age.
