Cockpit International instruments are the standard in the industry for reliability and economy. They feature our latest generation of patented air core movements or stepper motor technology to deliver the precision and durability that has made VDO renowned, worlwide.

Cockpit International features flood-lit illumination and are available in 12 / 24V applications, with a choice of two terminals: M4 studs or .250" male spades. Most 2 1/16" (52mm) instruments feature zinc-plated metal housings and black painted, brass bezels for rugged, reliable service.
