Congratulations
Congratulations on choosing one of the models from the
Stack ST8130 Road Car Display System. This series
contains three models:
1. The ST8130 System. This system is supplied with a
ST670 wheel speed sensor which obtains information
about the vehicle’s speed directly from one of its wheels.
If the ST670 is not suitable, an optional ST492 pulse
amplifier can be selected at time of ordering. This
obtains speed information from the vehicle’s original
equipment transmission sensor.
2. The ST8130P System. In addition to the ST8130 this
system includes a Fuel Pressure sensor.
3. The ST8130M System. In addition to the ST8130P
standard features this system is supplied with the Stack
Predictive Lap timing system.
Each system will give you a wealth of information to enable
you to obtain the maximum safe performance from your
vehicle.
Purpose of this manual
This manual will help you install and use either model in the
Stack ST8130 Road Car Display System. It explains how to
set up and configure the system for your vehicle.

ST8130 Road Car Display System
Chapter 1. Introducing the Display System
Chapter 1. Introducing the Display
System
The models in the Stack ST8130 Road Car Display System
monitor and display a range of values, known as performance
parameters, needed for effective car and driver management
in most driving situations. The models in the ST8130 Series
are the ST8130, ST8130P and the ST8130M.
The models combine an analogue tachometer with a digital
display for the following performance parameters:
1. Engine speed (RPM)
2. Wheel speed
3. Oil pressure
4. Oil temperature
5. Water temperature
6. Fuel pressure (optional on ST8130 variant)
7. Fuel level
8. Battery Voltage
9. Lap times (last completed and best) (lap time sensor
standard on ST8130M variant)
You can view the peak values (tell-tales) for all the
parameters.
All systems provide an alarm light to alert the driver that a
warning condition has been detected. The warning
conditions are based on preset alarm values for the following
performance parameters:
1. Low oil pressure
2. High oil temperature
3. High water temperature
4. Low fuel pressure
Users Guide

Chapter 1. Introducing the Display System
ST8130 Road Car Display System
5. Fuel level.
The fuel level alarm is indicated by a separate warning
light; the unit does not display any message for the fuel
level alarm.
6. Battery voltage
When the warning condition alarm light is switched on, a
warning message is shown on the digital display to identify
the condition. You can enable or disable the warning system
for each parameter individually.
You can cancel the warning message by pressing a switch.
Doing this does not turn off the warning condition alarm
light, which stays on until the condition no longer applies.
You can redefine the preset alarm values for each parameter
to those which are more suitable for your vehicle.
The system provides outputs for two external warning lights:
•
a gear shift warning light that is based on an RPM value
that you define for your vehicle
• an additional alarm warning light for the alarms
described above
Either model can also be fitted with an optional lap timing
sensor.
ST8130 Models
Standard ST670 wheel speed sensor. This system obtains the
vehicle speed from the rotations of one of the wheels on the
vehicle.
Optional ST492 pulse amplifier. This system obtains the
vehicle’s speed from pulses generated by the vehicle’s
original equipment gearbox or transmission sensor.

Chapter 3. Operating the Display
System
This chapter takes you through the operation of the system so
that you can familiarise yourself with its use before you
install it in the vehicle.
Switching the Display System on
You will have switched the system on already if you have
followed the instructions in the previous chapter and have
just set the system up for the first time before installing it.
When installed in the vehicle, the system is switched on
when you switch the ignition on.
When the power is first switched on, the digital display will
immediately show a "Low Oil P" warning and the alarm light
will come on. The tachometer will reset itself by moving the
needle until it touches the stop-pin and then moving it back
to the zero RPM position. Press Switch 3 to clear the
warning message from the display. (Switch 2 can also be
used for this.)
The digital display panel and the analogue dial face are
always backlit when the system is switched on.
If none of these actions occurs when you switch on, switch
off the power to the system and consult the section on
troubleshooting in this manual.
Changing the display layers
The digital display has five display layers. Each display
layer shows three parameters and their values
Each of the display layers is displayed in turn by pressing
switch 3. Press switch 3 when display layer 5 is being

ST8130 Road Car Display System
Peak Values (Tell Tales)
The system can display the peak values (sometimes called
‘tell-tales’) that have been recorded during a run for all the
monitored parameters.
Peak values are updated only when the engine speed has
exceeded its "gate value" for RPM for at least one second.
This allows the values to stabilise. Blipping the engine may
not be enough to update the peak values. The gate value is a
predefined RPM value that is used to control when the
system updates the peak values. This is to prevent abnormal
peak values from being recorded when, for example, the
engine is either not running, is idling or is being warmed up.
The system stores either a maximum or a minimum value as
the peak value, depending on the parameter, as in the
following table:
Parameter

Displaying the Peak Values
Press and hold Switch 1 to show the peak values for the
parameters being displayed on the current layer. Release the
switch to return to the normal display.
!

The displayed peak fuel level is the value that was current
when the peak values were last reset. The amount of fuel
used since the peak value reset can be determined by
subtracting the current value from the peak value.
Users Guide
ST8130 Road Car Display System
Chapter 3. Operating the Display System
Resetting the Peak Values
You can reset all of the peak values manually. All peak
values are reset at the same time. If the engine is running at
or above its gate value when the peak values are reset, they
are set to the current value of each performance parameter.
To reset the peak values:
•
•
•
Press and hold Switch 1 to display the peak values.
While holding Switch 1, press and hold Switch 4.
With Switch 4 held down, you will see the display revert
to the current values. The new peak values that are
stored are those being displayed when you release Switch
4.
If the engine is running below its gate value, the peak values
are not reset to the current values but are set to the values in
the following table:
Parameter

Engine RPM
Wheel speed
Oil Pressure
Oil Temperature
Water Temp

Peak Value Memory
The peak values are stored in a memory, which is powered
by an internal back-up battery. They remain stored in this
memory when the external power source is disconnected
from the system. The internal battery needs to be changed
every 4-5 years. When the power from this battery drops
below a safe level, an alarm is triggered and the warning
"Internal Battery Low" is displayed.

Chapter 3. Operating the Display System
ST8130 Road Car Display System
Alarms
The Display System has built-in warnings to alert the driver
when certain parameters either exceed or fall below their
alarm values. For example, a warning is signalled if the oil
pressure falls below its alarm value or if the oil temperature
rises above its alarm value. You can adjust the preset alarm
levels when you configure the Display System. See Chapter
4, Configuring the Display System in this manual.
Some of the warnings (see the following table) are triggered
only after the engine speed has exceeded its "gate value" for
RPM for at least one second. Blipping the engine may not
be enough to trigger a warning. The gate value is a
predefined RPM value that is used to control when the
system is to trigger a warning. This prevents abnormal
warnings from being triggered when, for example, the engine
is either not running, is idling or is being warmed up. Once
the engine has been running above the gated RPM for at least
one second, any problems will trigger an immediate
warning.

The oil pressure alarm will come on at power-up until the
engine is started and pressure exceeds the threshold set for
the alarm.

Calibrating the Fuel Level
To calibrate the fuel level reading with the actual amount of
fuel in the tank, you will need to start with a tank that
contains the amount of fuel you require for its reserve and
progressively fill it with known quantities of fuel. While
filling the tank, you must use at least two and possibly as
many as ten (the maximum permitted) calibration points to
set values for accurate fuel level readings. More than five
calibration points are recommended, with the first at zero
(empty), the second at five litres, the third at ten litres and the
remaining points divided equally across the amount of fuel
still required to fill the tank completely.
Use the following procedure:
Set the Display System to configuration mode.
1. Decide how many calibration points and the amount of
fuel for each that you are going to use. For example, to
calibrate the readings for a 50 litre (10 gallon) tank for
the following quantities, the following seven calibration
points are suggested: 0, 5L (1gal), 10L (2gal), 20L (4gal),
30L (6gal), 40L (8gal), 50L (10gal).
For a 100L (20gal) tank, ten calibration points are
suggested: 0, 5L (1gal), 10L (2gal), 20L (4gal), 30L
(6gal), 40L (8gal), 55L (11gal), 70L (14gal), 85L (17gal),
100L (20gal).
Empty the tank so that it contains only the amount you
require as its reserve. Use the fuel pump to empty the
tank. Add the reserve fuel, for example, two litres (0.5
gal.).

Warning lights
The Display Module has two built-in warning lights. The
left-hand (amber) light is the fuel level warning light and the
right-hand (red) light alerts the driver whenever an alarm has
been triggered.
As an option, you can install additional external warning
lights for gear shift and alarm warnings. The external
warning lights should be installed in any position that is in
the driver’s direct line of vision, as they need to be visible at
all times.
Stack Ltd can supply suitable external warning lights for
installation in the dashboard (ST536/537) as well as
shrouded versions that can be mounted on top of the
dashboard (ST533/534).

Wheel speed sensor (ST670-Option)
The Display System is supplied with one Stack ST670
proximity sensor as a standard feature which must be fitted if
the vehicle is to comply with the legal requirement for an onroad speedometer. This sensor is used to measure wheel
speed in order to display the vehicle's speed in MPH or km/h.
The sensor provides an electrical pulse to the system each
time a ferrous object, such as a wheel bolt, passes near to the
end of the sensor. When you configure the system, you will
need to supply the circumference of the wheel and the
number of ferrous objects that will be counted for each
revolution of the wheel. If you are not sure whether the
object you have chosen to use is ferrous, you can check it
with a magnet. If there is no attraction, the object is not
ferrous.
Fitting the wheel speed sensors
These sensors, when used for measuring vehicle speed, are
best fitted to an undriven outside wheel. The sensor is
triggered by a number of ‘Targets’ (see Sensor Targets). It is
essential that these devices and their cables are positioned as
far as possible from all sources of intense heat and from the
ignition HT leads to avoid interference.
Sensor targets
The targets can be any suitable metallic object which passes
within range of the sensor tip. Iron or mild steel targets are
preferred as they give a stronger signal to the sensor.
Aluminium, brass or copper targets give approximately one
third of the sensing range which makes setting up the sensor
difficult and may cause the speed signal to be unreliable.

hitting the targets.
Pulse Amplifier Interface (ST492-Option)
Introduction
This amplifier is designed to convert the output of an existing
sensor, which generates a pulsed signal which is not
compatible with the ST8130 system’s channel input
requirements. This incompatibility may caused by
insufficient voltage or lack of output current drive capability.
The amplifier has negligible loading effect on the signal and
includes the facility to adjust its sensitivity, so can be used
with a wide variety of sensors.
44
Users Guide
ST8130 Road Car Display System

Chapter 5. Installing the Display System
NB
For reasons of safety, NEVER connect the
amplifier to an ABS speed sensor.
Installation
Mechanical
The amplifier should be mounted, using the self-adhesive
dual locking material supplied, in a position away from
strong sources of heat and H.T. leads. It should be noted that
this adhesive will not reach full strength for up to 24 hours.
On one side of the module there is a small red LED and a
potentiometer access hole. This potentiometer is used to alter
the sensitivity and the LED is used to give visual
confirmation of correct adjustment. Access to this part
should therefore be considered when choosing a mounting
position.
Using the 'Dual-lock' fastener with Stack sensors
This is a high opening force 'Velcro-type' fastener system
with identical mating halves. It is intended to be used for
semi-permanent fixing applications and is not intended for
frequent dismantling.
For best performance, the following precautions should
be taken:
Bond strength is dependent upon the amount of adhesive to
surface contact development. Firm application pressure
develops better adhesive contact and thus improves bond
strength.
To obtain maximum adhesion, the bonding surfaces must be
clean, dry and well unified. Typical surface cleaning
solvents are isopropyl alcohol/water mixture (rubbing
alcohol) or heptane. Use proper safety precautions when
handling solvents.
Users Guide

Chapter 5. Installing the Display System
ST8130 Road Car Display System
Ideal application temperature range is 21-38ºC (70-100ºF).
Initial application to surfaces at temperatures below 10ºC
(50ºF) is not recommended because the adhesive becomes
too firm to adhere readily.
To mount a sensor or housing on the vehicle
Take one of the supplied pieces of 'dual-lock' fastener,
remove the adhesive backing and attach to the sensor or
housing.
Take a second strip of the fastener and attach to the first
piece by pushing them together firmly, ensuring correct
alignment.
Remove the adhesive backing from the second strip of
fastener and attach the sensor or housing to the vehicle in the
desired position. Push against the fastener firmly to ensure
maximum adhesion.
Do not try to separate the 2 strips of fastener immediately
The acrylic adhesive backing should be given 24 hours to
achieve full bond strength.
If you require further fastener strip or have any comments,
questions or recommendations regarding its use, please
contact Stack or your nearest distributor.
Electrical
The amplifier connects into the ST8130 system via a
four way Mini Sure Seal (MSS) socket, the larger of
the two connectors on the amplifier. Use the
extender cable with an MSS connector at each end to
connect the amplifier to the WS input on the
harness.
46
Users Guide
ST8130 Road Car Display System
Chapter 5. Installing the Display System
The plug, the smaller of the two connectors on the
amplifier, is the connection to the sensor. Use the
cable with a MSS connector at one end and two wires
at the other to connect the amplifier to the speed
sensor.
For a two wire sensor, connect sensor wires to the
red and black wires on the cable.
For a single wire sensor, connect the sensor wire to
the red wire on the cable.
Adjustment
Once the system has been fully wired power should be
applied.
At this stage it is desirable to arrange for the sensor to
generate a low frequency signal by spinning the wheel
slowly. The red LED at the end of the amplifier should be
seen to flash as each signal is received. If the frequency is
higher than approximately 10 flashes/second the LED may
only appear to dim, as the flashing is too fast for the eye to
see.
If this does not happen (the LED is always on or off) it will
be necessary to adjust the input sensitivity of the amplifier to
match the sensor. This is accomplished by turning the small
screw head, which is recessed, in the hole adjacent to the
LED. This should be adjusted until the LED flashes
consistently.
The operation should be checked at the lowest possible
frequency, as this is the most likely speed for problems to
occur.
Following these adjustments, correct operation can be
verified by observing the LCD speedometer at a range of
speeds.

Lap timing sensor (Optional, Std on
ST8130M)
The lap timing sensor is actuated by an infra-red beacon
positioned at the side of the circuit. The sensor is fixed to a
rigid bracket mounted at a convenient position on the outside
of the vehicle where it is able to detect the signals from the
beacon.
It is secured by two nuts (supplied) with an M18 x 1 mm
thread.
This sensor must be positioned horizontally and square to the
axis of the vehicle. In order to detect the signals from the
beacon, it must be positioned outside the vehicle. It should,
if possible, be positioned so that other vehicles that are being
overtaken (or are overtaking) at the moment your vehicle
passes the beacon do not block the signal.
Note that after detecting a signal, the system does not
recognise any further signals from beacons for a period of ten
seconds.

Trackside Infra-Red Lap Beacon
(Optional, Std on ST8130M)
The ST544 trackside infra-red lap beacon should be located
as follows:
•
•
•
•
As near to the start-finish line as possible
At the same height as the on-vehicle detector
Level, so that it emits a horizontal beam
It must be between 2 and 30 metres (6 and 100 feet) from
the vehicle when the vehicle passes it
Avoid positioning it so that the sun is directly behind it when
it is being used.
Where the unit is to be used for lengthy periods in very hot,
sunny conditions, it should be protected by shading it from
direct sunlight.
Do not allow water to be sprayed onto the transmitter lenses.
During wet conditions, fit a protective shroud over the
beacon.

Power supply to Trackside beacon
The beacon operates from a 12v DC supply. A sealed leadacid battery with a minimum rating of 2.5 Amp/hour is
recommended. This provides about 15 hours of operation.
The condition of the battery is indicated by the colour of the
LED indicator on the front panel of the unit:
1. Green:
Voltage is, at present, adequate for use
2. Red:
Voltage is too low (replace the battery)
3. No Colour: Battery exhausted or disconnected
Wiring harness
The Display Module, the sensors, switches and external
lights for your Display System are connected together by
means of the wiring harness supplied with the system.
The wiring harness can be fitted after the Display Module
and all the sensors and switches have been installed.
This harness has been designed so that the various branches
are long enough for most single seater and saloon cars.
Occasionally, an individual branch may need to be extended
or significantly shortened. If the standard harness is totally
unsuitable for your vehicle, contact Stack for details of
custom harnesses. Provided that you have chosen suitable
locations for the switches, sensors and any external warning
lights that you are installing, you should not need to extend
any of the individual wires in the harness.
Extender wires for connecting the fuel pressure and wheel
speed sensors to the wiring harness are available in the
following lengths:

Fitting the wiring harness
When fitting the harness on the vehicle, you should observe
the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Start by attaching the harness to the Display Module by
connecting the 19-way military connector.
Position the ends of all the wires at the locations of the
sensors, lamps and switches to which each is to be
connected, but do not connect them yet.
All wires should be routed as far as possible and not less
than 50mm/2” from ignition HT leads and distributor
caps and any other sources of high voltages.
When you pass any wire through a bulkhead or
dashboard, fit a cable grommet or gland into the hole so
that the edge of the hole cannot chafe the wire.
Particular care is needed when passing wires through
holes in carbon fibre, as the carbon can cut through
cables very easily.
The heatshrink sleeving around the sensor cables can be
cut back, if necessary, to enable the sensor cables to go
in separate directions earlier. It is recommended that you
always leave at least 150mm/6” of heatshrink sleeving to
provide additional strain relief for the cable where it
enters the 19-way connector.
Connect the wires when all the sensors are in position
and you have secured the wiring harness.

the individual cables in the wiring harness

All services and repairs are subject to an initial
inspection. No commitment can be made to repair the
goods in full or within a specified budget or timescale
until this inspection has been completed.
An initial inspection fee will be charged for all services.
Payment will be required before we conduct the
inspection. On completion of the inspection you will be
advised of any work and costs involved in repairing the
goods. At this point you will have the choice to proceed
with or terminate this service.
It is your responsibility to safely ship (at your expense)
the goods to Stack. It is also your responsibility to
arrange for the safe return of the goods, unless the goods
have been repaired under warranty, in which case Stack
will organise for the safe return of these goods. Please

ensure that the goods are adequately packaged and
insured for the journey.
To arrange for your equipment to be returned for an initial
inspection, please contact your dealer. The process for
returning goods is as follows:
1. Contact the dealer from whom you purchased the goods.
2. Your dealer will complete and send you a Returns
Authorisation form by fax or mail. This form includes a
unique Returns Authorisation Number (RAN).
3. You must include that form with the goods when
shipped. Your dealer will be able to advise you on the
shipping of your goods.
4. At the time of shipping your goods you should arrange to
make payment via your dealer for the initial inspection.
Your dealer will advise you of this fee.
Your goods will then be returned to Stack’s factory in the
UK. The inspection and service process is explained below:
1. On receipt of your goods they will undergo the initial
inspection by one of our engineers.
2. Our engineers will attempt to reproduce the fault as
reported and an assessment will be made with regards the
complexity of the corrective action:
i) If the corrective action can be identified at this stage,
we will contact you with details of the repair work
required, as well as a quotation for that work.
ii) If corrective action cannot be easily identified at this
stage, a full diagnosis and a “Corrective Action
Assessment” will be conducted. Using this information
we can then contact you and advise on the next course of
action and will quote on expected duration and cost of
repairs where applicable.
3. Once we have received your authorisation to proceed
with any repair work required, we will complete the work
and request payment. A full final test will be conducted
before the goods are packed ready for shipping.

received for this service, the goods will be returned to
you.
Cost and Duration of Service
All service and repair work is conducted at Stack’s factory in
the UK. Both the cost and the duration of the service will
depend on:
•
•
•
Your Geographical location.
Whether the goods are covered by a warranty.
The complexity of the repair work required once the
initial inspection has been completed.
Cost and Duration of Inspection – Your dealer will be able

The time required to complete any service or repair work is
dependent on the outcome of the initial inspection. At the
time of receiving your RAN form, we will provide an
estimated delivery time, which is subject to the outcome of
the initial inspection.
Priority Service – If you require your goods to be returned
faster than the estimated delivery time, we can offer a
priority service, for which there will be an extra charge.
Again, the time required to complete any service or repair
work is dependent on the outcome of the initial inspection.
Wherever possible we will return the goods within our
priority delivery times:
