Honeywell's newly released LCD maintenance/hour meter alerts an operator of 50-hour intervals to suggest maintenance. The meter will blink with a symbol to indicate that a machine has been running for 50 hours. The hour interval of the meter cannot be adjusted.
The Honeywell LCD maintenance/hour meter has a 12V signal input, which can be triggered by a pressure switch when an ignition is turned on or off. The meter, which can slip onto a ľ-inch blade terminal, has an internal battery and one-piece snap-in mounting.
Potential applications include anything with a motor that doesnít typically meter mileage ó more specifically, lawn and garden equipment, commercial sprayers, golf carts, small-engine vehicles, portable generators, compressors and welders. Pricing was unavailable from Honeywell.
Californiaís plan to mandate an electric vehicle market isnít the first such undertaking and certainly wonít be the last. But as the Golden State ratchets up for its next big step toward zero-emission vehicle status in 2018, it might be wise to consider a bit of history.
