MS3 - can i use D14 for Tacho out?

Postby martin2day » Fri Dec 29, 2017 4:52 am


my Ignition and Injection is setup to run from the MS3 Board. (J1 and JP2).
I don't have the MS3X Board.
I need a rpm out for my digital tacho.
I will use the Proto Area to build the circuit.
So i am thinking of use the D14 as output for the signal.

If i setup my ignition like this (MS3X), how is D14 configure?
Can i setup the D14 as tacho-out?

As long as you are using the 3x outputs for spark and not using that pin for something else, you are good.
