Products


  • Heavy Duty Industrial

    Meters & Gauges
    Electrical and mechanical gauges, tachometers and speedometers with classic white-on-black dual-scale graphics (English/metric) and SAE symbols, standard perimeter lighting, white pointers, black or polished stainless steel, corrosionresistant step bezels, and 12- or 24-volt light kits, optional.

     
  • Heavy Duty Automotive

    Meters & Gauges
    Electrical and mechanical gauges, tachometers and speedometers with automotivestyle white-on-black English scale graphics, standard perimeter lighting, white pointers, black or polished stainless steel, corrosion-resistant step bezels, and 12- or 24-volt light kits, standard.

     
  • English-Metric

    Meters & Gauges
    Electrical and mechanical gauges, tachometers and speedometers with orange-onblack graphics – still a popular combination for OEMs – with SAE symbols, standard perimeter lighting, white pointers, black anodized or polished stainless steel step corrosion-resistant bezels, and optional 12- or 24-volt light kits.

     
  • DDBI Analog

    Gauges
    Analog versions of the popular “DDBI” (Direct Data-Bus Instruments) line featuring white-on-black graphics with SAE or ISO symbols, English or metric scales, lighted
    pointers, black anodized or polished stainless steel step or low-profile type bezels, integral amber LED warning lights (covering high pressure, low temperature, low fuel or low volts) and sealed Deutsch connectors (one 6-pin connector for gauges, two for tachometers and speedometers). Units also feature stepper motors for precise and accurate measurement, as well as improved durability and reliability.

     
  • Analog II

    Tachometers & Speedometers

    Standard tachometers and speedometers using the DDBI platform featuring stepper motors for improved reliability, durability and accuracy, plus 6-digit backlit LCD screens for the hourmeter and odometer that replace electro-mechanical counter-wheels. Units include lit pointers and an expanded input frequency range (up to 66k RPM).

     
  • LCD Tachometers

    5 and 4 Digit Displays
    Standard LCD tachometers for Caterpillar engine applications with a variable update rate based on frequency input, plus they are self-powered (i.e. driven by the input signal, no additional power required using magnetic pick-up or pulse generator inputs). Units include backlit screens and black or polished bezels. Also available: Legacy LCD tachometers with black anodized or polished stainless steel bezels, using magnetic pick-up or pulse generator inputs, designed more for stationary engine applications where continuous updating is not required.

     
  • Hourmeters

    Electronic and LCD
    Traditional electronic hourmeters, round (52 mm), with U-bracket, 3-hole flange or 4-hole aircraft mounting configuration, plus mini hourmeters, rectangular, with 2- hole or clip mounting. Also available: LCD round and mini units rated at 9-56V, with digital read-outs and either spin-on or clip mounting hardware (based on the same platform developed for leading construction equipment OEM).

     
  • DDBI Electronic (J1939)

    Gauges & Meters
    “DDBI” (Direct Data-Bus Instruments) provide a direct connection to the SAE J1939 bus network – no instrument controller or gateway required. Units feature whiteon- black graphics with SAE or ISO symbols, English or metric scales, lighted pointers, black anodized or polished stainless steel step or low-profile type bezels, integral amber LED warning lights (covering high pressure, low temperature, low fuel or low volts) and sealed Deutsch connectors (one 6-pin connector for gauges, two for tachometers and speedometers). DDBI use stepper motors for precise and accurate measurement, as well as improved durability and reliability.

     
  • Senders & Sensors

    Traditional & State of the Art Solutions
    Float-arm fuel-level, temperature and pressure senders designed to match Datcon gauges. Fuel senders are also available to cover other electrical matches, such as 10-180Ω, 0-90Ω and 10-73Ω. Speed sensors, i.e. magnetic pick-ups (MPUs) and pulse generators for tachs and speedometers. Fully electronic vertical level and volume sensor line called IntelliSensor® for hydrocarbon-based fuel measurement features no moving parts for best-in-class durability, reliability and accuracy.

     
  • Specialty Prod. & Accessories

    Genuine Datcon Components
    Specialty products include unique gauges, warning light clusters, gauge panels, hardware and mounting kits, hourmeter accessories, light kits, mechanical tubing, shunts, switches and adaptors.
