5 Volt to 12 Volt Tacho/Rev Counter Converter.
Available through EBay @ 18.50 + Carriage.

Have you a Classic Car or Sports Car where you are changing the engine specification - yet want to keep the Classic Dash Board components?

Tachos / Rev Counters designed in the old days expect 12 Volt pulses from the ignition coil (low tension side).

If you change your engine for something different, or install computer control management then problems occur.

Modern Computer controlled systems sadly only deliver 5 Volts on their outputs.
5 Volts pulses from the computer section are not "LOUD" enough to drive the Olde Worlde Tacho / Rev Counter you want to keep in the Dash.

Tacho Drive from Ignition Coils
Olde Worlde Ignition System driving the Tacho
Large (12V) Pulses generated by the low tension coil system
Large Pulses coming from the old ignition system Smaller (5V) Pulses generated by the computer system
Smaller (5 Volt) Pulses coming from the Computer Controlled ignition system

The result is that the Rev Counter that you want to keep in the Dash Board - does NOT work!!!!


Tried and tested in real world applications - I have designed a simple 5 Volt to 12 Volt Pulse converter.

Miniature Size: 1.75" [45mm) long (including removeable connection screw terminal plug) x 1.25" (32mm) wide, 0.75" (19mm) deep.

This Classic Car converter is designed to take the small 5 Volt pulse output from a modern vehicle computer system and feed the original 12 Volt Tacho with a signal it is expecting - thus you can have a computer controlled ignition system and keep your old Dash Board Rev Counter.

Each unit is hand built, tested and setup in West Sussex to ensure premium quality and durability.

A simple non-reversible plug with screw terminals is your connection mechanism.
Each unit is encapsulated in thick Heat Shrink Sleeving providing full insulation from the vehicle chassis - so you can lose the unit either within the engine compartment or within the back of the Dash Board.

Connections are simple - via the screw terminal 4 pole removeable plug.
You need to provide a 1 Amp Quick Blow fuse to supply the unit from the Ignition Switch.
