Kustom Harness offers custom engine monitoring station and dash assemblies. We can help you design, engineer and build an efficient engine monitoring station to provide complete efficient control and monitoring of one or more engines from one location. This type of design is especially suited for portable power generation stations, pump stations, oil field equipment and other applications that require start up and monitoring of the engines from a common remote location. The Kustom Harness custom dash panel provide for the installation of gauges, controls, switches, lighting and other engine monitoring and control functions. Kustom Harness offers very flexible design options that include all harnessing, sensors, gauges, lighting, switches, etc all pre-wired and built to your specification to provide for a true “plug and play” installation.

Bison Oil came to Kustom Harness with the desire for an engine monitoring station capable of monitoring two (2) Detroit Series 60 Electronic Engines, one was a DDEC II and the other was a DDEC IV.  The electronic engine control panel was built for one of Bison Oil’s Well Cementing Trailers.

The build profile included a custom dash panel complete with Tachometers, Water Temp gauges and sensors, Oil Pressure, the volt meter serviced both engines since we had a common electrical charge system, all toggle switches, engine start switches and shutdown lamps, engine warning lamps, engine diagnostic switches and one set of cruise switches for the Detroit DDEC II.  The final piece of the dash panel was the use of a hand throttle for the Detroit DDEC IV.

Kustom Harness built a complete engine control harness for both the DDEC II and DDEC IV engines with a low coolant level sensor feed, fused ECM switched and un-switched power feeds as well as a diagnostics plug at the ECM.  Switched key power required a breakout feed that was 10 feet long and supplied power to a 16″ DC 12 volt fan.  The main trunk harness was to be 25 feet long and pre-wired to the dash panel.  Bison Oil also had the need for multiple Drill Rig Work Lights.  Kustom Harness supplied a main power and ground circut to run from the starter positive and negative to a bus bar at the dash panel and prewired with 4 relays.
