Product Code: ZEITAIT
Availability: In Stock
Monitor Air intake temperature using this -40 F to 300 Fahrenheit (-40C to 150 Celsius) sensor. Connecting harness included. Threading is 3/8th inch NPT. See herefor simple installation details.
Air and fluid temperature sensors operate by changing their electrical resistance as the temperature changes. Due to the mechanics of reading these sensors a stock sensor cannot be shared between the vehicles engine management system and the Zeitronix Zt-2 Wideband system. Each system must have its own sensor.
I. Single Temperature Sensor Installation
|II. Multiple Sensor Installation |
Two methods exist for attaching more than one temperature sensors to the Zeitronix Zt-2. Method 1 involves using a switch to switch between the sensor connected and is detailed below. The benefit of this method being the value is passed on to any displays. Method 2 involves using a resistor and software to convert from a voltage to a temperature value using the User1 input. Details on Method 2 available here.
By using an optional switch Zt-2 inputs can be given "double duty" helping you get more information and the best performance from your vehicle. Common uses for this technique include monitoring oil and fuel pressure, measuring intercooler efficiency, or monitoring an additional oil, transmission, water or air temperature.
In the example below two air temperature sensors are connected to the Zt-2 User2 input. This configuration will work equally as well using an air temperature sensor and a fluid temperature sensor or by using two fluid temperature sensors.
|III. Temperature Sensor Installation for User1 Input|
Temperature sensors can be attached to the Zt-2 User1 input with the help of a resistor and 5 volt power.
See the User1 Temperature Sensor Setup page for details.
