Here we have the JRP Edge 52mm digital EGT gauge, if you are a diesel 4x4 owner, or a high performance naturally aspirated owner and are looking for a high quality EGT gauge to monitor your exhaust gas temperatures, these gauges are an amazing offering. They are a 10-colour LCD gauge which look simply stunning, the EGT sensors supplied with this EGT gauge kit are also amazing quality, accurate & extremely durable, are plugged at the sensor end for easy servicing or replacement if ever required, and we talk in more detail below about why the sensors included with this gauge kit are just one of the great reasons to make the JRP Edge 52mm EGT gauge your choice out of others you can find on the market.
Anyone that has owned an EGT gauge before will know it is hard to find a good gauge that does not cost a fortune and you aren’t replacing the sensors all the time due to failures. We here at JRP have been producing and selling EGT sensors since 2017 and have a great deal of experience with the production of great EGT sensors, so when buying our digital EGT gauge kit you can rest assured we have built these gauges tough, there is nothing worse than having to mess around changing over gauges or sensors due to poor quality or inaccurate readings.
We have a ton of info below on what makes our little Edge 52mm digital EGT gauges such an amazing little kit for the money, so have a read and if you have any questions feel free to give one of the team a call, email or message on Facebook and we will be happy to assist.

QUALITY EGT SENSORS
One of the sensors that takes the most punishment out of any sensor used in aftermarket gauge kits and are prone to failure when using cheaper designs in the manufacturing process are EGT sensors, especially when used in Diesel 4x4 applications. We spent a great deal of time and real world testing with EGT sensors to make sure we were providing the best quality sensors possible without asking you to take out a mortgage to purchase these dual digital EGT gauges. This commitment to quality and reliability lead us to produce these high quality insulated K-Type thermocouples, they are made from 3030 stainless steel, can withstand constant operating temperatures of over 1000c for prolonged periods, and burst temps of up to 1200c.
Another important factor which makes these new EGT sensors a cut above the rest is the majority of EGT sensors supplied with EGT gauges are using single core wires, these sensors are using multi core. Now you may ask why is that better, well what we have discovered here after a years of playing around with various EGT sensors is this, heat is not the main killer of EGT sensors, vibration is. Having multi core wires in these sensors allows them to better cope with the harmonics and vibration of daily use especially with Diesels leading to less failures overall. Then we have the high quality water resistant connectors, braided cables with heat shielding, these sensors really are built to take a punishment.
AMAZING LCD DISPLAYS
The crown jewel of the Edge 52mm digital EGT gauge 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 a large number of 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. Most customers buying these gauges are for off-roading in their Diesel 4x4’s, they need to be tough. 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 of our Edge 52mm digital EGT 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 pretty simple concept, but definitely 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 gauges settings, such as colour selection, warning values, viewing or clearing peak values, each Edge 52mm EGT 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. Most diesel 4wd guys will go for the pillar mount install, so this feature will be really handy as removal of the gauges to change the settings isn’t so simple. 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 EGT gauges have this covered. Keeping an eye on EGT readings on off-road or on-road towing Diesel vehicles is hugely important, as is being alerted when temps exceed normal operating parameters. The gauges have a built in buzzer that will alert you if a warning has been triggered. Another aspect some customers may find useful is peak value recording so that you can check what is the highest reading the gauges have seen under various driving conditions, again these little gauges have this feature as well.
