Your single source for high performance custom gauges!

We supply custom speedometers, tachometers, boost gauges, temperature gauges, pressure gauges, gauges for hot rods, and gauges for all automotive vehicles, marine, OEM, and power sports applications.

If you have a unique gauge requirement please contact us.



Tachographs (Analogue & Digital)

A tachograph is a device that is put in vehicles such as lorries and coaches in order to record information such as how fast the vehicle goes, how far it travels, and the number of breaks the driver takes. Tachographs are either analogue tachograph or digital tachograph. Digital tachographs must be fitted to all vehicles.

Our purpose is to supply tachograph head units which are suitable for reconditioning. Tachographs available for delivery include various models by VDO.We specialise in the supply of many rare, difficult to find tachographs. If you're having trouble trying to locate a particularly difficult to source tachograph.




This is our medium-to-light duty winch. But it's no weakling. Designed to be compact, its 4.8-hp Series Wound motor can still pull 6,000 lbs., making it ideal for smaller vehicles with big ideas. Comes standard with a 24m x 8mm cable.

Loved by off-roaders who compete, it's our fastest winch. No load retrieval speed for the M8274-50 is 22.24M per minute, and that's not all.

At 46m x 8mm cable, it also has a very long line capacity. Its unique spur-gear drive train and upright design are totally rugged. Its braking system delivers smooth operation with superior heat dissipation. Roller fairleads, remote control on 3.7m lead, free spool clutch and battery cables are included. 2.4m. per minute at rated load.


speed limiters  


A speed limiter is a micro control based electronic device, which reads the input from the speed sensor and switches a fuel control solenoid valve proportional to the vehicle speed resulting in the control of speed to desirable levels. The speed can be programmed using a hand held programming device (SID).

Whatever vehicle you drive, TAS has the shocks you need. 

All vehicles on the road have some form of shock absorber. They are located on the front and rear wheels or axels of the vehicle and are connected to the vehicle suspension system – tyres, springs, chassis and their linking components.

Their primary function is to keep the vehicle's wheels in contact with the road.


colour coded gauges  


Most gauges available today have either black, white or silver faces, and your lighting isn't limited to whatever bulb cover you can get. With the various colours and sizes of automotive LEDs available, you can choose just about any colour for the back lighting.




We are focused on security and have in excess of over 15 years of expertise within the security and Time Access. Our trained technicians have worked on some of the country's largest projects and are experienced within the field.
Time and attendance systems (TNA) are used to track and monitor when employees start and stop work. A time and attendance system enables an employer to monitor their employees working hours and late arrivals, early departures, time taken on breaks and absenteeism.

Biometric time and attendance systems use the fingerprints of employees to verify who is actually clocking in and clocking out of work each day. The system scans the finger of the employee, coordinates are determined and then the system maps the endpoints and intersections of the fingerprint

Access Control Biometric Door Locks (fingerprint reader door locks - Access control)

How do fingerprint door locks work?

Basically, fingerprint locks system operate by scanning and converting your fingerprint data into a numerical template. ... The next time someone places his/her finger on the sensor, it matches the data obtained through the finger with the pre-saved values. If a match is found, access is granted and the door opens.

The days of locking your keys in the house or forgetting to lock the door can be a thing of the past, thanks to the variety of affordable electronic biometric door locks we have on offer. Electronic biometric door locks also known as biometric fingerprint door locks using fingerprint readers are now available to you at very cost effective prices. Our Biometric and fingerprint reader door locks products on display are Fingerprint reader L4000 Biometric Door lock, Fingerprint reader L5000 Biometric Door lock, Fingerprint reader L7000 Biometric Door lock, Fingerprint reader HL100 Biometric Door lock, Fingerprint reader LH1000 Biometric Door lock, Fingerprint reader LH2000 Biometric Door lock, Fingerprint reader LH4000 Biometric Door lock, and Fingerprint reader LH5000 Biometric Door lock

Clocking Machines


Clocking systems are used by companies of all sizes to record working hours of employees primarily in order to pay their wages. Some companies have a requirement to record the number of hours spent on specific tasks in order to cost jobs accurately. A time clock or Clocking Machine, sometimes known as a clock card machine or punch clock or time recorder, is a mechanical (or electronic) timepiece used to assist in tracking the hours an employee of a company worked. In regards to mechanical time clocks this was accomplished by inserting a heavy paper card, called a timesheet, into a slot on the time clock. When the time card hit a contact at the rear of the slot, the clocking machine would print day and time information on the card. This allowed a timekeeper to have an official record of the hours an employee worked to calculate and pay an employee. There are two different types of time cards conventionally used and offered by Time Access Solutions with a manual time clock, clipper and punch hole cards. There are also variations based on manufacture and Clocking machine used, and whether the user wants to record weekly or monthly recordings. Typically time cards are divided into sections for time and day stamping. More advanced time clocks require more advanced cards.

Fingerprint Readers - Access control

Fingerprint reader banner

Biometric Fingerprint Reader


Fingerprint scanners are security systems of biometrics. They are now used in police stations, security industries and most recently, on smartphones. Everyone has marks on their fingers. They can not be removed or changed. These marks have a pattern and this pattern is called the fingerprint.

Biometric fingerprint scanning works through identifying physical features such as fingerprints readings, fingerprint veins, Palm reading, iris and retinal patterns, and facial recognition characteristics. While passwords, pins and cards can all be lost or stolen, biometric data is unique to the individual and cannot be easily copied or forged.

Our fingerprint reader solution comes with the following products: F6 fingerprint reader device, F7 Fingerprint reader device, F707 fingerprint reader device, F708 fingerprint reader device, F16 fingerprint reader product, F17 fingerprint reader product, F18 fingerprint reader product, MA500 fingerprint reader product, X7 fingerprint reader product and K30 fingerprint reader product.
