Enable/disable the safety function based on exhaust gas temperature inputs. The function requires at least one EGT to be installed.

The highest temperature are used if more sensors are installed as EGT-sensors.


Note: Only sensors wired directly to MaxxECU "onboard amplifiers" can use this function, EGT sensors using external amplifiers connected to analog inputs can use the advanced warning outputs instead.
