Another new addition to the JRP Edge 52mm range is our 12v single voltmeter gauge, these gauges will allow you to monitor the voltage of either your primary or secondary battery systems depending on which you choose to connect them to. They also allow you to set a warning if the voltage levels drop below your desired levels. These little voltmeter gauges will be quite popular for our Diesel 4x4 customer base as well, especially for those that are running our Edge 2in1 Boost + EGT gauges already or are looking at running them. Reason being is the Edge Dual Boost + EGT gauges already monitor your primary battery source and they have the ability to set a warning for it, so you could purchase one of these single dedicated volt meter gauges to connect up to your secondary battery source, and have both sources covered.
To use these 12v voltmeter gauges to monitor a second battery system, you would connect the constant +12v power & ground to your 2nd battery system, and then run the IGN +12v off your primary battery source. This way the gauge will turn on when you start your car, but it will monitor the volts from your 2nd battery from the constant +12v you have connected to it. Note we have found for this to work, both the primary and secondary battery systems must share a common ground, and it’s also to be noted that wired this way this gauge will draw its power from the 2nd battery source, so just something to keep in mind.
These volt gauges are designed for 12v systems, so they have a readout range of 8v to 18v, we do have plans for a 24v gauge and also will be looking at doing a dual volts gauge in this style, but as above for now, anyone that is running or plan on running our Edge 2in1 Boost + EGT gauge, using one of these gauges on the secondary system to monitor your 2nd battery systems voltage levels is a pretty good way to achieve a dual volts monitoring setup running our gauges. For those that haven’t bought any gauges from us as yet, our multi gauge systems come equipped with dual volts, so they are worth a look if you are still trying to decide between a 52mm gauge setup, or if you would be open to an all in one gauge setup the multi gauge is worth a look.
Below you can find a bunch more information on our JRP Edge 52mm digital volts gauges, a main features breakdown, what is included in the box and for those that really like to know the product they are buying we have a decent detailed features breakdown section where we go over in detail some of the main points that make the JRP Edge range of gauges such an amazing little package. If after reading the below you have any questions, feel free to give the team here a call, email or shoot us a message on Facebook and we will be only too happy to help.

AMAZING LCD DISPLAYS
The crown jewel of the Edge 52mm gauge range 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 many 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. 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 our Edge 52mm digital 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 simple concept, but 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 gauge’s settings, such as colour selection, warning values, viewing or clearing peak values, the Edge 52mm voltmeter 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. 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 set 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 for the gauges, and the Edge 52mm digital volt meter have this covered. The gauges have a built in buzzer that will alert you if a warning has been triggered, and a nice little warning symbol on the gauges screen. If your cars battery voltage drops below the voltage level you have set for the warning, the gauges are always monitoring the volts levels and will alert you if a warning has been triggered. Another feature some customers may find useful is peak voltage levels are also monitored, so that you can check what is the highest voltage reading the gauges have seen during the drive, again these little gauges have this feature as well.
