The motoscope mini from motogadget features a multifunctional digital instrument, which is extremely compact and lightweight. The LED display is a proprietary development by motogadget especially designed for the motoscope mini. This display represents an absolute novelty in the field of digital instruments. 251 ultra-bright LEDs form an almost rimless display area that provides for faultless readable indications and different modes of programming.
Due to its unostentatious and elegant design and its superb visual and function-related quality the motoscope mini is eminently suited to almost all two or four wheel custom vehicles - whether they are Fighters, Low Riders, Sports Bikes, Enduros, Super Motos or even Quads, Mini-Bikes, Scooters and custom cars. The motoscope mini can be either positioned prominently to enhance a vehicle's style or can be integrated unobtrusively for an absolutely clean look! And finally for all weight fetishists: a bicycle speedometer can hardly beat a weight of 32 grams including connection cable.
The billet aluminium casing is CNC-milled and therefore of the highest quality. The surface is brushed and anodised either in black or natural silver. Alternatively, it can also be ordered in a high-gloss polished finish. The casing is completely backfilled and the electronics assembly is therefore protected against weather influences, water, dust, and vibrations.
Display and Functions
The new dot-matrix of 251 ultra-bright LEDs provides a graphic indication of the engine speed by means of a freely scalable, horizontal LED band. All other indications are shown as numerical values. Of course, the engine speed can also be called up on the display as a numerical value in real time.
In order to provide optimal readability in darkness, daylight and twilight, the intensity of LED illumination is adapted automatically. The basic setting can be set to default for day and night in the set-up menu.
Furthermore, an individual threshold value can be set for the engine speed limit ('red area'). Alternatively, this function can be used to indicate optimal gear shift engine speeds (simulated gear shift light). In both cases all LEDs start flashing whenever the adjusted engine speed value is reached.
Among all these functions the motoscope mini boasts a chief attraction: the new display is not only able to show readings horizontally but also vertically ("vertical mode"). This means that the instrument can also be mounted either horizontally or vertically! Furthermore, in the "vertical mode" the engine speed LED band can be set to either the left or right of the top-down numerical indications. These features are unique in their field.
With the kit-enclosed menu push button - or the originally installed head-lamp-flash-switch - it is possible to alternate between different functions and modes. Short text indications of the selected functions permit simple programming and operation of the instrument.
The menu push button is also used for entering specific vehicle data into the device's computer. Of course, all pre-adjustments and stored values remain stored when the power supply is switched off.
Two threaded bushings at the back of the motoscope mini mean that it can be mounted easily to every vehicle. It can be used as a detached instrument on the handlebar or fork bridge or as an integrated element in a fairing cockpit or instrument panel. For easy installation we offer suitable all-purpose holding brackets as well as solutions specific to particular brands and models.
Electrical safety is just one of the motoscope mini's many positive features. A working voltage of 7 V is already sufficient in order to operate the device and operation is ensured up to 18 V. Should over-voltage occur, this is intercepted automatically before it harms electronics. The instrument is therefore over-voltage protected. Furthermore, the device features protection against reverse polarity.
Connection and Sensors
A high degree of operational safety, simple wiring and a detailed assembly and operating manual make connecting the motoscope mini possible for everybody, including users who do not have much confidence in regard to vehicle electricity.
The speedometer sensor provided is very small (M5/25 mm) and made of stainless steel. The sensor complies with the highest standards (IP68) and has a 1.5 m long connection cable, which can used to attach it to the front or rear wheel.
The motoscope mini is compatible with a lot of original speedometer sensors supplied by the vehicle manufacturers, regardless of whether these are dry reed contacts or inductive proximity switches. In case you require one, a load resistor is enclosed in the scope of delivery. Where original sensors are used, the motoscope mini can simply be plugged and no further installation is required.
The device features also an intelligent 'Teach Function', which makes it possible to calibrate the speedometer in a very simple way - especially at vehicles that have the speedometer sensor within the gear box or somewhere similar, as in the case of Buell or Harley-Davidson (TM) motorcycles.
Versions regarding Casing Color and Ignition
Casings are available in black, silver and mirror polished.
When combining the motoscope mini with the genuine CDI ignitions (capacitor discharge ignitions) often found Enduros, Quads and two-stroke engine vehicles, it may be necessary to use an additional ignition signal transmitter. Such a device is available in our shop under the category of 'encoder'.
