PLX Devices ODBII and AFR Gauges

plx digital gauges
If you read my Boss 302 Gauge pod install you noticed the PLX Devices gauges that I put in the pod. These seem to stack up against other digital multi function gauges on the market, both in price and function. I am running Two DM-6 Air Fuel Ratio Gauges and One DM-200 ODBII guage.

I really liked the idea of having multiple readings inside a single gauge. Also with the ProCharger tune it is not utilizing the rear back of 02 sensors. So that was a perfect place to install these wide band AFR sensors. Yes the factory 02 sensors are wide-band but the PLX DM-200 could not read that parameter.

I detail below the different parameters it can display. I was disappointed because it has a configurable 4 parameter display (seen above center) but it is not able display oil temp from the ODBII data. A cool feature is that you can daisy chain up to 16 PLX Sensor Modules together.

I had to contact the company about daisy chaining these particular gauges together. The install manual is a bit under documented to cover it well. I also had to contact the company by phone so they could walk me through the menu system for the DM-200 gauge. Programming the display has several steps to configure see what you want to show. The phone support was good and they quickly helped me out.
