Digi-Panel Operating Instructions
LEDs are color coded for “at-a-glance” monitoring. GREEN
denotes a safe condition, YELLOW denotes a caution and
ALARMS denotes a dangerous condition.
TRANSMISSION TEMPERATURE: (4 gauge panel only) Reads transmission
temperature and signals the VISUAL and AUDIBLE ALARMS if the
temperature reaches 300 º F. When the vehicle is first started and the
transmission is cold, no LED will be lit. After a short period of
operation, the left-most LED will illuminate first, then move to the
right until normal operating temperature is reached. Easy to read color
bar-graphs. See specifications.
ENGINE TEMPERATURE: Reads engine temperature and signals the VISUAL
and AUDIBLE ALARMS if the temperature reaches 250 º F. When the vehicle
is first started and the engine is cold, no LED will be lit. After a
short period of operation, the left-most LED will illuminate first, then
move to the right until normal operating temperature is reached. Easy to read
color bar-graphs. See specifications.
OIL PRESSURE: Reads engine oil pressure and signals the VISUAL and
AUDIBLE ALARMS when oil pressure drops to 10 psi or lower. The LEDs
read to 50 psi and lock at that reading for any pressure above 50 psi. This
gives better resolution and accuracy for lower pressures that are more critical.
Easy to read color bar-graphs. See specifications.
BATTERY VOLTAGE: Reads
battery voltage and signals the VISUAL and AUDIBLE ALARMS when
voltage falls outside of 11 to 17 volt range. If the ignition switch is turned
on without starting the engine, the BATTERY VOLTAGE gauge will show the
condition of the battery. A fully charged battery will measure 12.6 volts and
corresponds to the right-most YELLOW LED (a quick
battery condition indicator). In cold climates, batteries will generally
read lower. After the engine is started, the alternator will cause the gauge to
go up into the GREEN LEDs. Easy to read color bar-graphs. See
AUDIBLE ALARM SWITCH: Can be turned off by driver once the alarm has
gotten driver’s attention. When turned on (up position), the AUDIBLE ALARM
automatically sends a piercing 85db tone when any alarm condition is registered.
Operating with the AUDIBLE ALARM switch in the OFF position is not
recommended. For example, in bright sunlight or in busy traffic
conditions, the driver may not notice the VISUAL ALARM during an alarm
The DIGI-PANEL signals a short
beep when the ignition is first turned on. This indicates the unit is
operating properly and that the AUDIBLE ALARM switch is in the ON
VISUAL ALARM: Bright RED
LED lights when any gauge signals a problem. Also indicates if the optional ENGINE
KILL is engaged (left half of LED is lit at a lower intensity).
OPTIONS SWITCH: This switch, if installed, may control one of several
If the panel is equipped with the RV BATTERY Option, it is a
spring-loaded switch that normally measures chassis battery voltage. When
depressed, it reads the RV Batteries. The AUDIBLE ALARM is
disabled when the switch is depressed so if the RV Batteries are checked
with the engine turned off, the AUDIBLE ALARM will not sound due to no
b. If the panel is equipped with Engine Oil Temperature or Differential
Oil Temperature, the Up position reads the Automatic Transmission
Temperature and Down reads either Engine Oil or Differential Temperature.
c. If the panel is equipped with the Engine-Kill option, Up
enables this function. When enabled, it automatically shuts off the engine 30
seconds after any Alarm condition except for low battery voltage.
