VHX-1100: Universal 6" x 10.75" Competition, Analog Instrument

The VHX-1100 is a whole new breed of instrument system. Created as a crossover between the pure function of race gauges and the usability of street instrumentation, this system provides the best of both. With a 0-160 MPH Speedometer, a 0-10,000 RPM Tach and large-sweep Oil Pressure and Temperature gauges, even the most radical of applications are covered. Four programmable, digital message centers allow for nearly unlimited expansion.

The billet aluminum faceplate is powdercoated flat-black and features intricate machining to create a unique multi-layered look. Measuring 10.75" x 6" (10.25" x 5-1/2" cutout) overall, this compact package also sports exposed stainless steel hardware to round out the competition styling.

Fully lit needles, backlit faces, and highly visible LCD message centers are a few of the things that you can see which set the VHX Series apart from yesterday’s traditional approach to instrumentation. A few of the features which you don’t normally see are the micro-controlled precision stepper motors, solid state sensors for unparalleled accuracy, and user-customizable display feedback, all supported by an unrivaled limited lifetime warranty which has become the standard for Dakota Digital instrumentation systems . Completely engineered and manufactured at our facility in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the VHX Series has completely revolutionized the instrumentation industry!

Dakota Digital is proud to introduce the BIM Expansion modules for Dakota Digital VFD and VHX instrument systems. The introduction of the Dakota Digital BIM modules allow you to add up to an additional 16 gauges, that's right we said SIXTEEN specialty gauges to your vehicle without the need to cut extra holes in the dash or installing pillar and pod mounts to your columns or under the dash. 

Please note that the BIM modules are only compatible with current VFD, VHX and RET control boxes which have a black plastic housing. Control boxes with metal housings are not compatible with the BIM modules.

Oil Pressure 1/8" NPT solid state sensor with a 10 ft harness.

Cable Driven Speed Sensor/ Generator Replaces GM style speedometer cables with a 10 ft harness.
   (Tremec and Ford style adaptors available on request.)

Bushings Each kit comes with 1/8" to 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" NPT bushings along with bushings for 12mm and 16mm x 1.5 threads.

Calibration


Pushbutton Dakota Digital instruments are programmed and operated by the push of a button. Simply mount the included pushbuttons supplied with your gauges in a convenient and easily accessible location. These buttons are used to calibrate your speedometer, set the cylinder count and the fuel level gauge. Once properly configured these same buttons are used to access the wealth of information located in the Digital Message Centers.

 

Which extras items that are not included with this kit does Dakota Digital recommend that you consider?

Because Dakota Digital includes the required sensors for the Oil Pressure, Water Temperature and Speedometer with all its VHX and VFD instrument systems, in many cases no additional parts will be required. However, you may wish to consider the following optional items.

GSS-2000 - Universal Gear Position Sensor 

All Instrument packages contain a gear shift indicator display allowing the transmission gear position (Park, Reverse, etc.) to be shown within the message center. The GSS-2000 accommodates automatic transmissions with 2- 4 forward gears and enjoys a simple and straightforward installation.
