DO NOT OPERATE THE GAUGE UNLESS YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD THIS MANUAL AND THE GAUGE IS INSTALLED AS PER THESE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS. NOT SUITABLE FOR MARINE APPLICATIONS. 1. The G52-BET Boost & EGT Gauge is designed to provide an accurate indication of Boost Pressure and Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT) with an optional temperature indication. As accurate as the indication might be, these gauges are not designed to be a substitute for regular maintenance and inspection by a qualified technician. 2. REDARC recommend that the G52-BET Boost & EGT Gauge be installed by a qualified technician. 3. Ensure the gauge face is cleaned only using soapy water and a soft cloth. 4. REDARC gauges are not suitable for installation into marine environments.

The G52-BET also features an optional Temperature display for which a seperate sensor is required*. The temperature is displayed on the digital readout at the bottom of the gauge and is capable of measuring between -40°C & +160°C (depending on sensor chosen). INSTALLATION Find a suitable location for mounting the Gauge. REDARC offer a range of mounting solutions - refer to www.redarc.com.au . It is important to ensure that your installation meets any regulations regarding Field of View and Head Impact requirements.

Sensor Note: DO NOT MOUNT IN ENGINE BAY * Connect to a dash light that dims via the vehicle dimmer adjustment to ensure the gauge dims accordingly. If your illumination circuit in your vehicle varies the positive voltage for dimming you will require a REDARC Enhanced Lighting Controller (GA-ELC) to get the gauge to dim with your night-time driving lights. ** Ensure that the ground connection makes good contact with the vehicle ground. Poor grounding can cause incorrect sensor readings. REDARC recommend removing any paint from the surface to ensure a bare metal on metal connection. It is recommended that any wiring harnesses be covered using conduit or similar. *** A steel 1/8 inch NPT bung (supplied) can be welded into a suitable location on the exhaust for mounting the EGT sensor. Make sure the tip of the probe is in the centre of the exhaust pipe when mounted. **** Connect the manifold pressure sensing hose to a suitable manifold hose using the ‘T’ piece provided. If no suitable hose exists you may need to attach a suitable fitting into the manifold. It is recommended that any wiring harnesses be covered using conduit or similar. 2 EGT PROBE INSTALLATION The EGT Sensor should be installed in the following fashion by a suitably qualified installer: 1. Allow the engine to cool completely before commencing any work. 2. Locate the recommended sensor location point on the pipe. (Each make and model of vehicle will have a specific location for the EGT sensors on the factory pipes. For aftermarket pipes, the system may require a sensor location which is very different from the factory location - Consult your dealer or manufacturer for the correct location for your system) 3. Have the pipe drilled and the included threaded boss welded into the appropriate position by a suitably qualified installer. 4. Assemble and Install the compression cap and ferrule assembly onto the welded base and finger tighten (Refer to diagram below for correct compression cap assembly) 5. Remove the black protective rubber cap from the end of the sensor probe and insert through the installed mounting hardware. Tighten compression nut using an open-end wrench. Do not over tighten typically ½ turn past finger tight is sufficient. 6. If room permits, align the sensor transition and spring at a 90-degree angle to the exhaust pipe to position the sensor tip correctly in the exhaust stream. 7. Connect the interface plug wires. (Refer to diagram below) Note: yellow wire should be connected to ‘+’, red wire to ‘-’ d Re ow ll Ye REDARC also offer a range of different sized muffler clamp mounts to suit the EGT Probe. Refer to www.redarc.com.au for more details. 3 EGT PROBE SPECIFICATIONS Thermocouple type ‘K’ Range -148 to 2372°F (-100 to 1300°C) Accuracy: +/-0.4% of reading or about +/- 1.1°C (Special Limits of Error) Probe diameter: 3/16 inch (0.187 inch) (4.75 mm) Sensing Junction Enclosed, Ungrounded Response Time 1200 mS Time Constant Defined as the time required to reach 63.2% of an instantaneous temperature change.

The Gauge “Id” of all linked gauges will need to be set to unique numbers. Make sure that each gauge is set to a unique number or letter and that one gauge is set as the master “Id.0”. The master gauge switch needs to be accessible for programming all the gauges. Each individual gauge switch is only needed to set the programming ID. Setup Instructions Setup Mode is only required if you wish to change settings such as background color or other options. Setup mode is indicated by the display of the programming symbol.

A number indicates that the relay will be triggered by the optional Temp Sensor. A pointer indicates the respective reading that will trigger the relay. After each cycle, under(-) or over(+) temp mode is selected. For no relay output, select ‘nc’. Note: Grey segment denotes a flashing portion of the Gauge screen during this mode of setup. 7 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Centre black circle on gauge is flashing intermittently. If the black centre ring is flashing and the gauge sounds an alarm, the gauge may have been programmed to trigger a relay, but a relay is not detected. Check the relay connection or reprogram as required. If no relay output is required refer to setup mode 11 and select ‘nc’. What is the ‘peak hold’ (PH) feature? When the gauge push button is pressed, the needle pointer(s) and/ or digital display will show the highest/ peak reading for the function being monitored. This feature will reset when the vehicles ignition is turned off. Do I need to purchase the optional sensor for my gauge to work? No, the standard features of the gauge will still work. To purchase the optional sensors please visit www. redarc.com.au What is the P-clip used for? Attaching the p-clip to the back of the gauge ensures that the connectors are strongly fixed to the gauge, thereby minimising the risk that they may come loose during installation and/ or rough driving conditions. I cannot see my question here? Please contact REDARC’s free technical support on (08) 8322 4848 Is the gauge compatible with existing vehicle sensors or other sensors available in the market? No, the gauge is designed to work only with the sensors sold by REDARC. What is the best mounting solution for my gauge? REDARC offers a range of mounting panels and a mounting cup for its gauge range. Please ensure that fitment of your gauge does not impede your driving field of view or create a head impact hazard. Should I enclose the wiring harnesses in conduit? REDARC recommends enclosing the supplied wiring harnesses in a suitable conduit that will protect the wiring against sharp edges and/ or extreme temperatures. Where should I install the black push button? In most cases, once the gauge is set up and programmed the push button can be hidden behind the vehicles instrument dash panel. However, if you believe that you may need to regularly change any of the modes or wish to use the peak hold feature you should locate the push button in an accessible area (e.g. at the back of the mounting cup). Can I fit my gauge to a 24V vehicle circuit? The gauge requires 12V to operate. A 24V to 12V adaptor is available for purchase (GA-2412V). This can be purchased for all gauges, however the G52-VA and G52-VVA will only allow you to monitor the charging performance of 12V batteries. My gauge is too bright when driving (i.e. at night), what should I do? You will need to purchase an Enhanced Lighting Controller (GA-ELC). This module is to be used when you do not have a dimming circuit you can connect your gauges to, are using REDARC Gauges for all of your instrumentation so require dimming or the dimming circuit in your vehicle does not dim the REDARC gauges to your liking. The ELC allows you to program the night time brightness and colour of your gauges, including dimming if connected to a dash dimmer (i.e. once programmed your gauge(s) will change colour when turning on your park lights and back to a day light colour when you turn them off). You only require one ELC for a complete set of gauges. It can be used in conjunction with the 24 volt adaptor (GA-2412V) for a 24 volt system (ELC module is 24v capable). 8 TWO YEAR PRODUCT WARRANTY Over the last three decades our company has established a reputation as the power conversion specialist.
