Universal Speed Sensor Interface, Model # SS-10. For use with NS50 & 60 Models DMI's, and 4085 Installation Kit.

The SS-10 is a speed sensor that is intended for use along with the NiteStar DMI (50 or 60). It is mounted on either the firewall or under the dashboard of the vehicle. The SS-10 conditions and transfers the speed signal to the NiteStar for measurement and display. The signals are automatically converted, and the sensitive design of the SS-10 allows it to operate at low speeds.

  • Automatically converts signals
  • Variable sensitivity allows counting at low speeds
  • Permits a reduction in sensitivity for noisy environments
  • Virtually transparent to vehicle electronics, reducing error messages
  • Compatible with most vehicles
  • Mounts to firewall, or under dashboard
  • Includes self-diagnostic features to verify cable connection to DMI and operation of SS-10 electronics
  • Ruggedized enclosure withstands temperatures up to 240°F
  • Simplifies the installation of the NiteStar, eliminating errors and guesswork
