What does a boost gauge connect to?

A boost gauge is a pressure gauge that indicates manifold air pressure or turbocharger or supercharger boost pressure in an internal combustion engine. They are commonly mounted on the dashboard, on the drivers side pillar, or in a radio slot.

How does a diesel RPM gauge work?

By using energy harvesting, we can use a sensor that reads RPM directly from the rotation of your engine. The motion of the engine provides the information for RPM, and at the same time, energy is captured from the engines motion and is used to power the wireless signal for the diesel tachometer.

Is a tachometer?

A tachometer (revolution-counter, tach, rev-counter, RPM gauge) is an instrument measuring the rotation speed of a shaft or disk, as in a motor or other machine. The device usually displays the revolutions per minute (RPM) on a calibrated analogue dial, but digital displays are increasingly common.
