Marine Hourmeter & Clock Gauges

Marine Hourmeter & Clock Gauges

In most land vehicles, you can evaluate the engine's lifespan and maintain the powerplant depending on its mileage. However, this parameter gives you just a general idea about the motor's condition and its physical wear, and it cannot be applied to the marine industry. Engine hours, or the total time of motor operation is a more exact criteria in this regard, and a hourmeter gauge is a good instrument allowing you to be aware of how much time your boat's engine has already run. Thus, you can plan servicing, major engine overhaul, or the vessel's resale more accurately.

As for the working principle of most hourmeter gauges, they get activated automatically when the ignition switch is on. Connecting this device to the switch is usually the simplest way, yet the time when the motor is shut down but the switch is on is relatively small and can be neglected in most cases. However, there are other, less popular but more accurate ways to know real operating hours, for instance, connecting the instrument to a "switch-type" oil pressure sender. In our store, you can choose from numerous marine hourmeter & clock gauges many of which also display RPMs. Besides good looks, they boast high accuracy, durability, and resistance to corrosion.
