Two EGT Sensor Options
We here at JRP have a strong focus on the turbo Diesel 4x4 customer base, this started before the release of our multi gauge v2 systems in 2018, we made it a priority to offer the best possible EGT sensors for this market without asking customers to pay an arm and a leg. While our v2 multi gauges were in development, we worked on further improving the EGT sensors that we had been supplying with our systems in the past, we developed what we call the JRP EGT v2 sensors and these are out there right now running in thousands of customers vehicles with huge success. But we here at JRP are always looking for ways we can further improve on design or function of our products and we wanted to take things even further, while our EGT v2 sensors are still an amazing little sensor, we knew with a little more money invested in the development and materials we could offer people an even better EGT sensor for just a little extra money. Rather than just drop our EGT v2 sensors and only offer the v3 sensors with our gauge products, which would increase the cost and maybe put the gauges out of reach for some customers, we decided to keep offering all of our gauges with the EGT v2 as standard, but also offer customers the option to upgrade to the JRP EGT v3 if the so wished and budget permitted it. Because the v2 sensors still are a great sensor, we feel this was the best way to go about things. So, when ordering any of our gauge products that have EGT, you have the option of getting them with the good old v2’s, or the option to pay a little more to upgrade to the latest v3 sensors. Below we give a little more info on the difference between the two sensors, and you can make your choice when adding to cart which EGT sensor you would like shipped with your gauge. We also have a couple of photos listed up which shows a comparison between the two sensors if you would like to visually see the differences.
V2 EGT - SS 3030 3MM
As we mentioned above, these are our JRP EGT v2 sensor that we developed before the launch of the v2 multi gauge back in 2018, they are a rock solid little sensor that will serve most Diesel guys and are tried and tested with great success over the years. As we also mentioned, these are the same sensors out there running in thousands of customers vehicles that have bought our gauge products since 2018 and have been met with huge praise and is one of the reasons our gauges are so popular with the Diesel guys is because of the known quality and reliability found with the EGT sensors we supply. The v2 are the sensors that come with these EGT gauges as standard with no extra money needing to be paid. The JRP EGT v2 sensor is constructed of high quality 3030 stainless steel with a probe thickness of 3mm, the induction points inside the probes are shielded to make sure no external grounds can be picked up by the sensors to interfere with readings, they use multi-core wire as opposed to single core, a lot of EGT products in the price range of our systems use single core wires, single core wires are inferior with handling vibration which can be one of the leading causes of sensor failure, so again our v2 EGT sensors have this covered by using quality multi core wire all the way. They also have Deutsch plug on the end of the sensor for easy access, and all wires are heat shielded. If you don’t have a history of hammering EGT sensors, these standard v2 sensors are still a terrific choice. For Diesel guys that give EGT sensors a hammering, wanting to install pre-turbo, or are looking for the best sensor possible to be running with our gauges, you might want to consider our v3 sensor upgrade which really isn’t that much more money. If you run a very lean NA performance petrol car which traditionally run very high EGT’s, you also may want to consider our v3 sensors.
V3 EGT - SS 2520 4MM
Over the years of selling products that utilize EGT sensors, we have learnt a few things. With thousands of vehicles now running our EGT sensors, we have gathered a lot of real world feedback and data on what makes a sensor great, and data on what makes them not so great. With that knowledge in hand, we set out to produce an improved version of our v2 EGT sensors, and we have managed to do just that, we are proud to offer these improved sensors as an upgrade option which we call the JRP EGT v3 sensor. These v3 models have all the main fundamentals of the v2 EGT sensors, but have been upgraded in area’s we think are of importance. For starters the gauge wire used on these sensors is a couple of levels up to better handle excessive vibration, like the v2 sensors we have made sure to use high quality multi core wire and paid extra attention to perfect crimping. The induction points inside the probe itself are shielded to make sure there can never be any issues with external grounds making their way into the sensors to cause incorrect readings. The probe body itself is made from 2520 stainless steel, the decision to use 2520 over 3030 was one our engineer decided on after reviewing a few factors, the actual thickness of the probe shaft itself has been increased to 4mm, as well as the actual thickness of the metal protecting the induction point inside and will offer better durability and longevity. The probe shape and design has also been improved, tapering down from the top to the tip. The response rates on the v3’s is also an improvement over our older v2’s, not that our old v2’s was sluggish by any means, but as we mentioned above, we were really shooting for an EGT sensor a couple of steps up from our v2, but again without them costing a fortune like some other high end brands. Reports from our workshop & dyno customers who beta tested the v3 probes for us was, that there was a noticeable difference in response rates, the v3’s are much snappier with reporting changes in exhaust gas temps with larger changes in throttle or on deacceleration.
So with that information in hand, no matter which way you go here you have the choice of two great EGT sensors, if you are on a budget we have you covered, or if you have a history of giving EGT sensors a hammering and want the fastest most accurate responding EGT sensor we could muster up with our years of experience, you have the option to upgrade this gauge kit to the JRP EGT v3. We really recommend the v3 sensors for any customer that is running a NA performance car that see’s 800-950c temps a lot of the time, and for Diesel guys that have a history of giving EGT sensors a hard time, wanting the best possible response rates, or wanting to install pre-turbo. Considering the cost to upgrade really isn’t much more, even if you don’t fall into those category’s we mentioned and if your budget permits, we of course would lean towards saying grab the v3 for the best EGT gauge setup.

At JRP we are always trying to innovate, and with our deeper than most understanding of the intended use for a gauge and it’s practical function, we always ask ourselves in the development stages how can we make this better. It’s really the heart and soul of what we do here.
So when looking at our 52mm temperature based gauges, we asked ourselves once again how can we make these better for our customers, expand their practical functionality in ways that are actually useful. With the gauges using an incredible 10-colour LCD panel, our engineer put his thinking cap on and came up with a function we call Colour Pre-Warn or CPW for short. Typically gauges will come with one warning you can set and that is it, you would set the warning to go off at a level that is either right on the limit, or because you only have the one warning, you end up being conservative with it and set it lower because you would prefer being warned before it gets to out of control. This normally leads to having alarms going off all the time because you are cautious, or you end up getting sick of being cautious and set alarms a little too aggressively and end up letting a high temp situation get out of control and engine damage happens. We have all been there one way or another.
With the JRP Edge v1.5 temperature gauges, you now have a two stage warning system, one which works the same as other gauges where you set a final value for a warning that will trigger an alarm on the gauge, but now there is a softer secondary warning system you can choose to enable which will pre-alert you that the gauges are reaching higher levels than normal and alert you using the gauges bright colours.
So for example, you have chosen to run blue as your desired running colour for the gauge, set yourself a warning at 500c for EGT’s, if you enable the “colour pre-warn” function, once the gauge reaches 440c it will change from blue to yellow, and once it hits 460c it will change from yellow to orange, and once you hit 480c it will change from orange to red, and finally once you reach that 500c the gauge will sound an alarm.
The idea behind this is you get a visual non invasive indication that the temp gauge is moving out of normal operating parameters, this allows for a more aggressive final audible warning to be set, along with being visually alerted that your temps are starting to move into high territory’s without nasty loud alarms going off. You will be pre-warned by the gauge changing colour that things aren’t quite right and gives a larger margin for error in catching an event well before it happens.
Now just like everything we do here, we have put a decent amount of thought in how this little function was implemented and could be setup. You are able to customize the colours in the pre-warn function, you can select any 3 colours that you aren’t using as a running colour for the gauge for the warning system. You can also set how sensitive the colour pre-warn is in relation to your primary audible warning you set, we have really tried to make it so setup of this feature is simple, yet it can be customized to suit almost all applications.
We have a video demonstration of the feature in action on this page, just click the Videos tab at the top and you can check it out and see how it works. We feel this feature while sounding simple enough is actually going to become something that a lot of our customers will come to love, no more gauges alarms going off prematurely, no one likes premature alarms, less anxiety around looking at the gauges more than you need to making sure everything is ok and your ears aren’t about to get a pounding, we feel it will be one of those features that on paper you think that’s cool but almost a bit gimmicky, to using it and finding out that it’s been one of the best little innovations you have found in a gauge for years.
AMAZING LCD DISPLAYS
The crown jewel of the Edge 52mm digital EGT gauge is their amazing VA type LCD panels that were developed just for these gauges. As soon as you see them light up you will know right away these are not your typical LCD gauge, they have an amazing clarity & brightness to them.
The LCD panels used in the JRP Edge range of gauges took over a year in development process, they are a high end VA type panel which allows for superior viewing angles and brightness, the first thing you will notice about the JRP Edge gauges is how they can be viewed quite clearly on both on & off angle viewing, one of the shortfalls of LCD is as you view them off angle their brightness and clarity reduce, the JRP Edge have some of the best off angle viewing of any LCD gauge on the market today.
They have a brightness of 600nit which is also terrific, daytime viewing on some LCD gauges can be a little poor due to lack of brightness, this is not the case with the Edge range of gauges, and they are clear and easy to read in almost any condition. Also having such a large number of selectable display colours means it will be much easier to match factory instrument clusters for those customers who want to maintain a consistent look in their cabin.
HIGH END BUILD QUALITY
The Edge range of gauges have a robust design, the body of the gauges are a tough light weight alloy finished in a polished black look which gives them a nice contemporary look which will suit almost any application. Most customers buying these gauges are for off-roading in their Diesel 4x4’s, they need to be tough. These gauges also use a thick single piece scratch proof tempered glass panel in front of the LCD screen which slightly protrudes from the gauge itself for an awesome look that just screams quality. There is nothing worse than gauges that just look cheap, and the last thing the Edge range does is look cheap, they have a modern look which is also supported by quality housing and glass which just gives them that overall feel and look of quality.
SINGLE POWER INSTALL
All of our Edge 52mm digital EGT gauges have the Power Link feature and cable included, this is a simple way to provide power to more than one gauge with just a single link cable running from the primary gauge to any additional gauges. This is to save having to run multiple power looms for each gauge you have installed and reduced the soldering / crimping of power looms down to just the primary gauge itself. For any additional gauges you want to install, it is just a case of running a power link cable from one gauge to the next. It is a pretty simple concept, but definitely makes installing 3 or 4 gauges a much quicker and neater process having the feature be on the gauges.
While the gauges themselves have a single button on the gauge body itself which is used for making changes to the gauges settings, such as colour selection, warning values, viewing or clearing peak values, each Edge 52mm EGT gauge comes with an external cabled button controller which can be installed somewhere tucked away in the cabin for making changes to the gauges settings after installation without having to remove the gauge from its housing to make the changes. Just simply connect our little button controller to the gauge and install somewhere easy to access, be it hidden away, or you can install it into your dash for the race look. Most diesel 4wd guys will go for the pillar mount install, so this feature will be really handy as removal of the gauges to change the settings isn’t so simple. Updating the gauges warning settings, changing colours, viewing or resetting peak values will no longer be a hassle at all.
WARNINGS & PEAK VALUES
All the Edge range of 52mm gauges have the ability to setup user definable warnings on the gauges, it’s an important part of any decent gauge solution for users to be able to configure their own warning values, and the Edge 52mm digital EGT gauges have this covered. Keeping an eye on EGT readings with any turbo diesel vehicle, be it off-road or on-road towing is hugely important, as is being alerted when temps exceed normal operating parameters. So just simply setup a temperature warning that if ever exceeded the gauges built in buzzer that will alert you a warning has been triggered and you will never miss a running hot condition ever again. It’s also possible with this model to setup a warning for volts as well, as these gauges not only monitor EGT’s but also volts as well. And last but not least, another feature some customers also may find useful is, these gauges are able to record peak temperatures, this will enable you to review after a drive what were the highest temps seen by the gauge at any one time. You can easily clear the peak recording before a drive to clear the last drives peak temps that were recorded.
