Freecall 1800 72 0018 for additional information
***Also available: Dual Sensor model- measure temperature at 2 locations at the
same time! See our 'other items' listed on Ebay.
Compact display- fits flush on the dashboard or surrounds. Most other
systems have large display units that cannot be fitted this way, and must be
installed either on top or under dashboard. The "Engine Guard" uses
the latest microprocessor technology making the display unit both more compact
AND more accurate.
This system is entirely independent from the factory temperature gauge-
you can actually see temperature changes in real time. The audible alarm can be
set just above 'normal operating temperature', and can warn of overheating.
Cheap insurance compared to expensive mechanical damage caused by overheating!
Installation is simple- no special tools or skills required. The Display
Unit uses an advanced adhesive backing, so no drilling/screwing into the
dashboard. The sensor is a simple bolt-on design that is quick to install and
versatile. Please note the suggested location in the pictures above- the Sensor
can be located in many other locations such as on the sump, on the
gearbox/transmission, oil filter, etc. The audible warning buzzer is separate
from the Display, so can be either hidden behind the dashboard, or the wires
can be extended to relocate the buzzer closer to the driver/operator or in
New Standard Features on ALL models:
- Automatic alarm set-point adjustment- making it easier and quicker to calibrate the system. Just install the system and operate the vehicle or machinery for a week or so and the highest temperature will be recorded. Then use the in-built memory function to transfer the highest operating temperature over to become the alarm set-point- this is as simple as pressing and holding the set button! Just increase by a few degrees to give you the best possible warning of overheating

Case Study: Bullet ski boat / Mercruiser V6
‘I have recently installed an Engine Guard digital
temperature alarm on my 17ft Bullet ski boat. The boat is powered by a V6
Mercruiser engine and sterndrive. The engine uses raw sea water pumped through
a heat exchange cooling system that then uses fresh water to then cool the
engine. These systems are known to be unreliable when they get a few years old.
Overheating is common, and engine rebuilds are expensive..
dashboard mounted temperature gauge will warn of potential overheating if
you’re watching it, and that’s the problem. The boat is operated at speed -
often in busy waters towing a skier or wake boarder. Watching the gauge is just
not possible much of the time.
I fitted the
ENGINE GUARD dual sensor alarm system. I’ve got one sensor on the heat
exchanger so I can see exactly the temperature of the coolant going to the
engine, and I’ve got the second sensor mounted via a stainless hose clamp around
the oil filter so I can see oil temperature. Both have an alarm ‘set point’
that will warn me if there is a problem, which is the main point of the system.
I can also see what difference load and speed makes to the engine- and it’s
obvious that anything over about 4,500rpm is hard going for the ‘old school’
pushrod engine. Under that, the temperature stays nice and stable. That’s over
40 knots so it’s plenty fast enough for me.’
