RPM warning
« on: November 01, 2010, 08:35:11 PM »
I'm interested in purchasing an UltraGauge but I have a few questions.  I know that there can be alarms for each of the gauges.  Does this hold true for RPM?  I would like to know if the UG can function as a shift indicator when the RPM gets to a certain level?  If my fuel cutoff is at 6500 can I set the UG to alarm at 6200?  If yes, does the alarm instantly stop when the RPM goes below the set limit or do I have to push a button to reset it?

Looking forward to the answers.

I don't think that is a good idea.  The RPM displayed is not exactly real time and the alarm lags even more.  If and when the RPM alarm goes off,  you would have already over rev'd the engine.

To make the RPM alarm as responsive as possible, disable all the other alarms which by default are enabled.
With a single alarm enabled,  the delay to detect will be from 0-1 seconds.
The Alarm is displayed for about 4 seconds and then shuts off and rearms.
You can set the alarm trigger point to any value you like.
In generally, UltraGauge is not meant for racing purposes and is not designed to be a shift indicator.

Thanks for the info.
