- Zt-2 Wideband Tips:
Multiple temperature sensors can be used to monitor
oil, transmission, water and air temperatures. In the example
below two air temperature sensors are connected using an optional
switch. A similar setup can be accomplished with two pressure
sensors on a Zt-2 Boost or User2 input.
1. Zeitronix Data Logger (ZDL) v3.0.5 Released
Warnings setup support for on-screen controls
Plots, Text, and Gauge controls flash an on-screen warning when
warning levels are exceeded.
For more information on warnings setup please visit the ZAVT product page.

Multiple Sensor Installation
version of these instructions)
By using an optional switch Zt-2 inputs can be given "double duty" helping you
get more information and the best performance from your vehicle. Common uses
for this technique include monitoring oil and fuel pressure, measuring
intercooler efficiency, or monitoring an additional oil, transmission, water or
In the example below two air temperature sensors are connected to the Zt-2 User2
input. This configuration will work equally as well using an air
temperature sensor and a fluid temperature sensor or by using two fluid temperature
A similar setup as the one below can be used to monitor oil, fuel, and MAP
pressures using the Boost input (orange wire pin 4) or the User2 input
(brown-white wire pin 8). To do this use two identical pressure sensors.
Connect the pressure sensor signal outputs (green wires) to the switch and the
ZT-2 input to
the center connection on the switch. Setup the Boost or User2 input in the software
for the sensor type you are using. The two pressure sensors can be powered
by the Zt-2 Boost sensor +5V power, yellow wire (pin 6), and grounded to the
brown signal ground wire (pin 11).
Air and fluid temperature sensors have two wires. Wire colors may be black and orange, or black
for both wires. The two wires are interchangeable and either wire can be
used when making the connections in the instructions below.
- Connect one of the wires from each
temperature sensor to the the Zt-2 Signal Harness "Sensor Ground" input.
This wire is the brown wire (pin 11).
- Connect the second wire from each
temperature sensor to the outer connection points on the switch.
- Connect the Zt-2 Signal
Harness "User2" wire (pin 8) to the center connection point on the
This wire is white with a brown stripe.
- Setup the Zt-2 "User2" input. By
default the User2 input will read a voltage.
