This new system allows starting the engine temporarily bypassing the oil pressure
shutdown feature. When the engine starts it monitors the required low oil pressure. It
waits and if minimum oil pressure is not reached safely it will shut engine off. If the
pressure is correct the engine will continue to run through the oil pressure switch
closure. This overrides the ignition switch on power enabling it to shut the engine off
with the ignition switch still on. The ignition switch simultaneously also retains the ability
to shut the engine off. With this control the oil pressure switch never switches any high
currents which assures its longevity while still maintaining a 40 amp capacity ignition
circuit.

Our units manual override switch is provided to bypass and/or test the engine oil
pressure switch. By automatically monitoring the startup oil pressure rise makes it
unnecessary  to crank the motor excessively with the ignition off in an attempt to obtain
enough oil pressure to close the switch and allow the car to start. This procedure only
drains the battery, overheats the starter and tends to flood the motor.

The unit works with any two pin normally opened contact oil pressure switch.
