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 ¼-inch blade terminal, has an internal battery and one-piece snap-in mounting.
Potential applications include anything with a motor that doesn’t typically meter mileage — more specifically, lawn and garden equipment, commercial sprayers, golf carts, small-engine vehicles, portable generators, compressors and welders. Pricing was unavailable from Honeywell.
