DESCRIPTION
GDI's N151 Vibration activated hour meters now offer two options designed to fit the need of different industries and applications:
N151-0101 Hour Meter: This vibration hour meter features a high triggering threshold and is perfect for heavy-duty industrial applications. Equipment like plate compactors or hydraulic breaking equipment are perfect for this hour meter.
N151-0103 Hour Meter: The wireless vibration activated hour meter that the motocross and off-road markets have been waiting for. Wireless installation and smart activation that does not count trailered road travel. The N151 vibration activated hour meter delivers accurate run time of your machine, no false triggering and a 10 year battery life.
Both these hour meters are fully epoxy potted and can withstand heat, moisture, and extreme vibration. Simply select the hour meter most appropriate for your application, mount to your equipment and go. Tracking equipment usage has never been easier. FEATURES

SPECIFICATIONS
  • Timer 1 & Timer 2 counts in tenths, then whole hours up to 99.999 hours (can be resettable or non resettable).
  • 3 Service Alerts with Breakin interval and reset options.
  • cycle counter: counts equipment power up cyclescan be viewed automatically when equipment is powered off.
  • When euqipment vibrates, the meter counts running hours.Transport Filter*: During the first 7 sec.
  • after start of the engine it will check out if there is a constant frequency.
  • Therefore the meter runs 7 sec.
  • behind time to determine the real operating hours.
  • The Vibration Activated Meter can be used on any equipment that vibrates during the operation.
  • It is fully epoxy potted and can withstand heat, moisture and and extreme vibration.
  • Heavy-duty industrial applications such as plate compactors, hydraulic breakers.
OPERATION
Equipment manufacturers all recognize the importance of performing preventive maintenance. Basic maintenance extends the life of equipment and reduces operating costs and down time due to equipment failure. Flash Alert service alarms make it simple to track maintenance needs and be sure that services are performed at the correct time.
Flash Alert service alarms can be tailored to specific applications and up to 3 service alarms can be programmed into GDI's NewGen LCD hour meter series. Some of the messages available include:
  • Works even under water (up to 20 meters).
  • Can stand at least 45G.
  • What makes the military quality?
  • absolute dust-, fresh-, and saltwater resistant.
  • Therefore it’s ideal for maritime areas, too.
  • (Pressure-washer cleaning possible).
  • Flash Alert service displays reminders for preventive maintenance.
  • (LEARN MORE ABOUT THE FLASH ALERTS).
  • Due to a self-contained battery it has a lifecycle of 12 years.
  • Extrem shock proof up to at least 45G.
  • High contrast LCD display is always lit and polarized to prevent discoloration from UV exposure.
  • I was skeptical about this meter after reading some of the reviews, I very happy that I bought it.
  • It came with zero hours on the meter as expected and has a small tab that you remove once mounted.
OEM OPTIONS
  • It starts adding hours only after the tab is removed. I have it mounted on a Porter Cable vertical oil bath/piston air compressor.
  • It works as expected and has been accurately counting hours since installed.
  • I've only observed it working while the compressor is running, not "when a bus drives by" like some reviews I read.
  • The cost of the meter is small when compared to the cost of the compressor.
  • It's cheap insurance and helps me to track maintenance on the motor.
  • I have a similar meter installed on my Honda generator but it uses a signal off the spark plug wire, same brand/manufacture and its been working great for several years.
  • I expect the same from this unit. Series T54 Hour Meters are turned on by natural vibration of lawnmower, diesel engine, compressor, or any device that has some vibration.
  • Attached with double-sided tape or other mounting options, units will measure total hours that device is running.
INSTALLATION
All dimensions in inches. To print figures individually, right-click on the image and save to your local computer.
1. Find a convenient mounting location. DO NOT mount over magnetic surfaces. DO NOT mount meter where surface temperature exceeds 125 degrees F. As a general guideline, if you can place your hand on the mounting surface without discomfort while equipment is at full operating temperature, then it's not too hot for the meter.
2. Use drill template (Fig. 1) to locate mounting holes. CAUTION: DO NOT DRILL INTO GAS TANKS OR ENGINE CRANKCASE. If in doubt, contact your dealer.
3. Mounting will determine sensitivity of the meter. In most applications, the appropriate mounting sensitivity can be easily achieved. See Fig. 2 for mounting sensitivity options.
CAUTION: Only qualified personnel should make electrical connections. Disconnect power prior to working on electrical circuits. Failure to follow normal electrical guidelines may result in damage to equipment and/or serious bodily injury.
