tachometer used with E MAG
« on: April 06, 2014, 02:52:15 PM »
What is a good electronic tach for use with an E MAG electronic ignition? I understand that you use the 6th pin for the tach connection.
Thanks

Bill,
I have this one:

But when I asked them about using it with the P-Mag they wanted a few hundred for the 'adapter' and I just did without.  I'm guessing the adaption is a simple piece of electronics that a techie could build in a no time?
Am switching over to Dynon now and hope it's compatible.....
