The Interceptor scan gauge is capable of displaying more than 50 parameters, two at a time (eight using cyclic scan), at an adjustable rate of up to approximately 20 times per second. A sample list is below.
- Battery Voltage
- Engine Coolant Temperature
- Engine RPM
- Fuel Rail Pressure
- Ignition Timing
- Injector Duty Cycle (%)
- Injector Pulse Width
- Intake Air Temperature 1 (before turbochargers)
- Intake Air Temperature 2 (after intercooler)
- Knock Retard
- Long Term Fuel Trims (banks 1 and 2)
- Manifold Pressure (vacuum/boost)
- Mass Air Flows (banks 1 and 2)
- O2 Sensor Voltage (banks 1 and 2)
- Oil Pressure
- Short Term Fuel Trim (banks 1 and 2)
- Transmission Slip
- Transmission Temp. (auto trans)
- Vehicle MPH
- Two user configurable analog inputs**
All scan gauges are shipped with white displays, black faces with V logo, and include black/silver bezels.
A 5′ cable is included with appropriate OBD2 connector. Gauges come assembled with a silver accented black bezel with black face as shown. An extra white face is also included and can easily be swapped since the bezel screws on/off. Optional black, polished silver, brushed silver and carbon fiber bezels are available. When you purchase one of the optional bezels, you will still receive the standard silver accented black bezel already installed.
A function menu is available by pushing both buttons simultaneously. One menu option allows you to enter a record mode. Once selected, the Interceptor will return to normal scan mode, and will start recording the displayed data automatically when the throttle exceeds 60%. Approximately 60 seconds of data will be stored. Returning to the menu screen, you can choose to replay the stored data on the Interceptor display.
The gauge displays two parameters at a time, and can be programmed to cycle through up to eight parameters during a user determined period of time. This way you can monitor several items without taking any other actions.
Has high intensity warning lights that can be set using a one or two parameter algorithm. P1, P1 or P2, P1 and P2. For example, trigger the lights when rpm exceeds 6000 rpm, or when trans temp exceeds 230° F and coolant exceeds 210° F, or when knock retard is greater than 1.0° and throttle is above 75%. Due to the gauge’s extremely fast update rate, this light is very accurate and easy to set. Once you try it you’ll find you can’t live without it!
Another menu option offers the ability to swap the foreground and background colors of the display. Using this feature, for example, the gauge with a black background and blue characters (negative image) becomes a blue background with black characters (positive image). Not only can this be visually appealing but beneficial in changing lighting conditions. Positive images are easier to read in bright sunlight, negative at night.
The Interceptor’s scan rate can also be adjusted through a menu function.
DTC’s (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) can be accessed and cleared via menu options. This essential feature will help the gauge to pay for itself the first time the check engine light comes on. Those that have modified their vehicle will find this very handy when a sensor, vacuum line, etc. has been inadvertently left disconnected, or something was just not put back together properly.
The two analog inputs can be configured through menu choices. A linear conversion can be entered so that an analog signal connected to the gauge can be read in appropriate units. These inputs are handy for pressure signals such as those from MAP and oil pressure sensors, analog outputs from air/fuel ratio kits, etc. These signals can then be read and recorded alongside the other parameters obtained on the vehicle’s bus.
The gauge has bi-directional controls allowing for manual control of the low and high speed fans, CASE relearn and ECU reset on GM vehicles.
New optional relay output module allows you to control a 12v relay based on values of OBD2 or analog input data.
Last but not least, the Interceptor will measure 0-60 times, as well as 1/8 and 1/4 mile time and speeds. This is accomplished through a simple menu selection.
This attractive pod is integrated into a factory defroster vent and is a direct replacement for the factory piece while still allowing air to pass. Installs in minutes and looks like it came from the factory! Just pop the original vent out and replace with this gauge pod.
Aeroforce Technology warrants this product and its accessories against defects in material and workmanship for a period of one year from the date of purchase.
** 0 to 5 VDC inputs can be configured to read the outputs from MAP sensors, air/fuel ratio kits, pressure or temperature sensors, etc. Raw voltage can be displayed or a conversion can be entered to read proper units.
Users will find that ability to log RPM vs other parameters at high speed such as ignition advance, boost, or knock retard invaluable with regards to tuning.
