Analogue Tachometer Driver Board -948-
A tachometer module to drive moving coil tachometer movements.
(note these instructions are for the boxed version which is identical electrically)
External Module Drives Analogue Tachometer Movements ( 2020 version) Board Only
All new electronics replaces old circuit board
High quality ceramic capacitors for long life and temperature stability.
If your classic car has had electronic ignition fitted and you tacho won't play ball, this will solve the problem
Based on the LM2917 but with spiyda's own additions
Uniquely, this unit can be calibrated from a PC, Laptop, iPhone etc. using the calibration cable
No need to intall software, just a simple wav file.
If you are fitting the module yourself, order the optional calibration cable.
Dimensions 47 x 32 x 17mm
This module is the same board as in our extarnal module but unboxed. The terminal blocks are mounted at the extreme edge of the board and can be used as a mounting by hot glueing them to ( for example) the back of the dial. ( industrial double sided tape can be used but is not included) It is also suitable for non-smiths tachometers with a moving coil movement.
This is the least DIY solution as it will require ingenuity to mount the board in a safe manner. It is included as it does provive a means of repairing tachometers such as the later RVC tachometer keeping all the changes inside the case.
The board is negative earth and will convert positive earth tachometers to negative earth -
It is however possible to install on a positive earth car, read the FAQ if you have a positive earth car

RVI to RVC 1 dismantling the tacho
RVI to RVC 2 fitting the circuit board
RVI to RVC 3 powering up the board
RVI to RVC 4 calibrating
RVI to RVC 5 alternative connections
to cover as many tacho inputs as possible there are three options for signal input voltage
to clarify how these are used depending on your set-up
