W or R-Terminal
The PowerHalt PH3 R or W-Terminal kit is an addition to the PH3 system that utilizes a Variable Reluctance (VR) sensor to read engine speed to determine proper and safe shut down event. Alternative to a VR sensor is to measure on the R or W-Terminal on an automotive engine’s alternator stator tap. The output is used as a tachometer signal with AC voltage waveform similar to that of a VR sensor. The benefit of using the alternator output reduces the need for an external sensor, as the installation process is greatly simplified.
