Description
This compact and easy to install module will allow you to easily adapt AutoMeter tachometers and shift lights and many other aftermarket RPM-based devices on your alternator-equipped diesel or non-standard ignition gasoline engine. Equipped with a sensor which is mounted to the alternator casing, a one time setup calibration is accomplished via push button interface on the module to synchronize the alternator signal with engine crank RPM. Perfect for diesel performance applications looking to add a tachometer or upgrade from factory equipment and a great problem solver for engine swap builds in need of working instruments. Pair it with AutoMeter's low-rev tachometer models to complete your diesel-specific gauge installation.

DIESEL TACH ADAPTER is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sensor works fine, easy to install. Had to use a 1K pull up resistor for the adapter to work with a VDO tachometer gauge. A circuit diagram of the adapter o/p circuitry would have been helpful.

Questions

How does this hook up to kkuboys engonr.? Want to drive a add on tac

Asked by: Bill pin
Thank you for your question. This picks up a tach signal on a diesel application by wrapping the probe around the alternator. If you do not have an alternator, there is no way to make this unit work.

Hi, I have a Ford F250 that was petrol and I changed the engine for a diesel. My question is if this adapter serves me for the original tachometer of my truck ?. It is the year 1985 my truck. Thank you

Asked by: Drbc77
This adapter attaches to your alternater, generating a signal for any tachometer. Once connected, you have to use a tool (like a hand held optical tach gun) when you see 1,000 from, you push the button on tach adapter, now it will send a signal to your tach that is also 1,000 rpm, and should now be set to send signals that reflect increasing and decreasing rpm. Bottom line, it uses alternater base speed at 1,000 rpm, to now send a regular tach signal that should very closely make your tach behave normal.

Hi this guy on Ebay is telling me this 9112 unit works with 24v. Does it?

Asked by: leroy
Thank you for your question. That is incorrect. This unit is made to work with 12v-16v systems and will not work on a 24v system.

I have a 80 series landcruiser with standard factory diesel tacho..Ihave installed a 6bt cummins it doesnt have a tacho pick up will this adaptor calibrate to my factory tacho?

Asked by: quintin
Thank you for your question. You would need to know what kind of signal your tachometer utilizes. Here is how this unit works: The Diesel Tach Adapter (DTA) is provided with a probe assembly that is to be strapped to the vehicle’s alternator. The probe trigger will sense the rotating stator of the alternator and provide a small signal to the input of the DTA. The DTA, once calibrated by capturing a 1000 RPM signal, will provide a 12V square wave output with an equivalent 4 PPR tach signal.

I am purchasing a new alternator of my 12 valve cummins swap. It is a 1 wire unit avalable with or with out a "w or tach" terminal. Can this terminal be used instead of the pick up included in the kit?

Asked by: Neil-56F600
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, the kit is designed to work with the signal provided by the pickup included. You will have to use our pickup.
