Aeroforce Ford FD Series DUAL Interceptor Scan Gauges
The Interceptor is capable of displaying the following parameters, two at a time (8 using cyclic scan), at an adjustable rate of up to approximately 20 times per second. Not all are supported by every vehicle, so there is no guarantee that the Interceptor will display all of these on your particular car or truck. If the vehicle is broadcasting the parameter, the Interceptor will recognize this and make it available for display.

* Vehicle must have a Mass Air Flow sensor to obtain these parameters.
** 0-5v inputs can be configured to read the outputs from MAP sensors, Air/Fuel ratio kits, pressure or temperature sensors, etc. Raw voltage can be displayed or a conversion can be entered to read proper units. See our sensor page for compatible Aeroforce sensor kits.
Now available for Ford Powerstroke (excluding 2008) For questions visit our technical forums at aeroforcetech.com/forum The Interceptor gauge is 52mm (2 1/16") in diameter and will fit in all standard gauge pods of this size. A 5' cable is included with appropriate OBD2 connector. A splitter cable is included with the dual Interceptor units.
A function menu is available by pushing both buttons simultaneously. The first option allows you to enter a record mode. Once selected, the Interceptor will return to normal scan mode, but will start recording the displayed data automatically when the throttle exceeds 60%. Approximately 45-60 seconds of data will be stored. Returning to the menu screen, you can choose to replay the stored data on the Interceptor display.
The gauge displays 2 parameters at a time, but can be programmed to cycle through up to 8 parameters during a user determined period of time. This way you can monitor several items without taking any other actions.
The Interceptor's scan rate can be adjusted through a menu function.
DTC's (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) can be accessed and cleared via menu options.
A performance measurement mode is available as well. Once selected the gauge will measure 0-60 mph time, 1/8 and 1/4 mile elapsed time with speed.
High intensity LEDs can be used as shift lights or warning lights to indicate when a selected parameter exceeds an entered threshold. Due to the gauges extremely fast update rate, this light is very accurate and easy to set. Once you try it you'll find you can't live without it!
Finally the two analog inputs can be configured through menu choices. A linear conversion can be entered so that an analog signal connected to the gauge can be read in appropriate units. These inputs are handy for pressure signals such as those from MAP and oil pressure sensors, analog outputs from Air/Fuel ratio kits, etc. These signal can then be read and recorded along side the other parameters obtained on the vehicle's bus.
Installation is accomplished by simply plugging the supplied connector into the OBD2 port below the steering wheel and connecting a separate included wire to a switched 12v vehicle power source. Virtually plug-and-play!
The Interceptor OBD2 scan gauge
What is it?
The Interceptor is a powerful 2 1/16" gauge that reads, displays, and records up to 8* of numerous important engine operating parameters, as well as functions as a highly accurate shift/warning light and performance timer. These parameters are accessed via the vehicle's OBD2 port (diagnostic port located under the dash). This is critical data necessary for performance tuning and problem diagnosis. The Interceptor also reads and clears DTC's (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) and now has two user configurable analog inputs. Click on the appropriate application to the left for more in depth descriptions. This gauge has several patented features that will not be found on any other gauge.
*Using Cyclic Scan (TM)
Some examples of available parameters are:
* Engine RPM
* Transmission Temperature
* Knock Retard
* Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor
* Oil Temperature
* Turbo or Supercharger Boost Pressure
* Ignition advance
* Engine temperature
* Fuel Economy (MPG)
* and many more..
This gauge will keep you interior looking tight, no bulky laptop, PDA, or unsightly box to look at. Once installed, the Interceptor will enhance the appearance of your vehicle's interior, rather than detract from it like other devices that are suctioned to the windshield or velcroed to the dash.
How does it work?
The Interceptor can be run by itself or in tandem with another Interceptor. The Interceptor is programmed to display the most important parameters supported by a given vehicle. It displays any two user chosen parameters on a brightly colored backlit LCD screen. There are several optional display, bezel , and face colors to choose from. See our images section for examples. Two switches, one for each field, allow the user to toggle through these parameters. The display is updated up to 20 times per second, ensuring that you will not miss any important data. A menu screen is available that enables you, among other things, to record data, replay the recorded data, view any stored trouble codes, clear these codes, set up the warning lights, invert the display colors, adjust the scan rate, or return to the normal real time scan function. The Interceptor automatically powers down when the vehicle is turned off and stores the current display configuration. This allows the unit to return to the same screen once the vehicle is restarted.
Applications Currently the Interceptor will interface with most gasoline and diesel powered 1996 and up GM and car or truck that is OBD2 compliant, many Ford vehicles, as well as a growing number of Chrysler products.
* The actual number of available parameters will vary depending on the manufacturer's specifications for that vehicle.
Due to the large number of color and bezel combinations all Aeroforce gauges are made to order and dropshipped directly from the manufacturer. This process takes 1-3 days from ordering however if you need your gauge quicker than that we ask that you call your order in to verify how long it will take for the item to be made and shipped.
