the market, according to Curtis, with virtually limitless custom designs in both cased and module versions. Curtis has been manufacturing the enGage range for a number of years and all are ideal for vehicle-based applications such as light on-road, utility, material handling, outdoor power and construction equipment.


As a microprocessor-based instrument, enGage VII offers multiple functions within a single programmable, full colour, compact display. A variety of system parameters such as battery state of charge, wheel position, tachometer, fuel, temperature, etc can be viewed as well as multiple maintenance and hour meter functions.

All components have been specifically selected for function within the most demanding vehicle and industrial environments, where temperature extremes and harsh mechani- cal and electrical conditions are at their worst. As with all Curtis enGage products, the enGage VII is CE and UL approved.


Curtis Instruments will again be exhibiting at IMHX 2013 (stand 20G80) at the NEC Birmingham. IMHX 2010 was one of the most successful events in the history of IMHX, and the 2013 event promises to be bigger and better as demand for space has led the show’s organisers to open another hall, expanding the show by an impressive 20%. As IMHX 2013 presents an unrivalled op- portunity to meet designers, engineers and buyers face-to-face, Curtis will be launch- ing and demonstrating key new products including the enGage VI and VII, and the Acuity Battery Monitoring System, the new- est, most advanced technology by Curtis. A culmination of decades of expert experience in monitoring lead-acid industrial vehicle batteries, Acuity measures battery use time, voltage, current and tempera- ture, and transmits critical battery data via CAN or power line carrier. Easy to install, it simply sits on top of the battery. Curtis envisages this exciting new product to be of key importance to OEMs, fleet hire and battery companies alike. n
