Frequently Asked Questions
Very very quick! The RPM measurement algorithm does not use the basic pulse counting technique, or basic frequency to voltage converters. The RPM is digitally
calculated per pulse! The digital filter algorithm is biased to displaying an increase of RPM quickly and accurately, while also filtering any electrical noise. The exact time is quite dependent
on the frequency of the tacho signal. This level of precision and speed is what makes them an ideal visual reference for drag and motorsport racing. The Shift-P2 is likely more
accurate and faster than most tacho gauges.
Each light actually has TWO LEDs. They are quite bright and can be viewed from a wide angle! Even with full sun shining on them, you can still see them clearly. They
were designed to be bright enough for use on motorbikes, with a wide viewing angle. The in-built light sensor however does a fantastic job of reducing the brightness when the ambient light drops
off, which is adjustable.
Yes! One of the provided display modes will flash all the lights only when you exceed your set RPM point, just like a traditional shift light. Or you can
program a specific display sequence with the Shift-P2+ model.
Yes! Use left or right to cycle the display to “Off”. Warnings are still active, unless these are individually turned off.
Both a performance acrylic adhesive foam pad and adehesive backed Velcro (brand) for automotive use are included. These have excellent resistance to ageing,
water, most solvents and UV light. They stick really well to plastic, but not to vinyl (particularly those with protective waxes applied). Alternative mounting plates may be available in
This is not possible. They are an internal component in a sophisticated electronics assembly.
It is not waterproof. The Shift-P2 must be mounted behind a windscreen, where it is not subjected to the wind pressure or rain. Ecliptech may make a waterproof variant in the future. Please contact us if interested.
The Shift-P2 has a 24 month warranty from date of purchase, return to base. This covers manufactured defects, not damage. If you ever have a problem with one of our products, please contact us!
