31 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning Tech Tip The OEM’s troubleshooting information should be consulted when troubleshooting instrumentation. Indiscriminate shorts to ground of instrument circuits or other random test procedures can cause damage to the gauges and electronics.

32 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning J1587/J1708 Multiplexed Instrumentation Conventional gauges require a connection to each sensor or sender Modern diesel engines need all engine data, temperature, oil pressure, engine speed, etc. IPC electronic modules only require a connection to the J1587/J1708 data link IPC will talk to engine to obtain information needed for dash gauges

38 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning Tech Tip By knowing the source of information for each multiplexed gauge and warning lamp, you may be able to narrow the instrumentation problem to a specific module or a specific electrical connector based on which gauges or warning lamps are functional and which are not functional.

41 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning Summary Instrumentation refers to the gauges, indicator lamps, and audible alarms used to inform the truck operator of the status of the truck’s various systems. A sensing device called a gauge sender or sending unit is used to transform pressure, temperature, level or other physical value into a corresponding valve of resistance. The varying resistance causes the current flow through a coil or a heating element in a conventional gauge to increase or decrease, resulting in the gauge needle moving to the corresponding location.

42 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning Summary (continued) The two main categories of electromechanical gauges are bimetallic and magnetic. Bimetallic gauges operate on the principle that current flow through a heating element causes a bimetallic strip to deflect. Magnetic gauges contain coils (inductors) and operate on the principles of electromagnetism. An instrument voltage regulator is often used with bimetallic gauges to maintain a constant voltage supply for the gauge heating element.

43 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning Summary (continued) The four main types of metallic gauges are D’Arsonval, three coil, two coil, and air core. Electronically controlled gauges use an electronic module to control current flow through the magnetic type gauge coils. The sending unit or sensor is an input to the electronic control module. The electronic module controls the current supplied to the gauge accordingly.

44 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning Summary (continued) Electronically controlled speedometers and tachometers typically must be programmed to correspond to the vehicle if changes such as rear axle ratios are made. This programming is performed on some trucks through a series of DIP switches in the IPC or through the modification of a programmable parameter in the engine ECM or other control module.

45 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning Summary (continued) Trucks may have a variety of warning indicator lamps. Each lamp is controlled by a switching device that typically provides a path to ground to illuminate the indicator lamp. Multiplexed instrumentation describes instrumentation that receives information from a serial communication network, commonly know as a data link. The various electronic module on the vehicle, broadcast information on the data link. The IPC “listens” for this information on the data link and drives the appropriate gauge or warning lamp.

46 Copyright © 2014 Delmar, Cengage Learning Summary (continued) The term stepper motor describes a type of motor that can driven to a specific position and held in that position. Many modern trucks IPCs make use of stepper driven motor gauges.
