    Default DC Power

    Anyone know how to tap into DC power? I want to hard wire a data
    acquisition unit in. I need 12-18 volt DC power. Can I do this
    through the fuse box somehow?

    I also would like to know if I can pick up the tachometer. I need a 5-
    18 volt, 50% duty cycle, square wave output signal from the tach.

    Thanks,

    Rich

    Have a search on pistonheads, I think its covered there.

    IIRC the tach signal wasn't sufficient for the guys sat nav head and he had to get a booster.

    Either that or ring the factory in England (during UK office hours!) and say you have a technical question about your Noble and is there any chance you could run it past Bob Sharpe.
