August 4, 2016  Meet the NMEA 2000 Engine Gateway for Volvo Penta and J1939 engines

Yacht Devices Engine Gateway for Volvo Penta and J1939 engines

We are glad to present the new Engine Gateway with unbeatable price of USD $189 including free world-wide delivery. Device contains built-in J1939 Y-connector and supplied with different types of NMEA 2000 connectors, so no additional cables required!

The device is a gateway from a J1939 network (engine network) to a NMEA 2000 digital network. With it, you can see engine revolutions, temperature, working hours and other information on the screen of a chart plotter and other display devices on an NMEA 2000 network. The Device was developed specifically for Volvo Penta engines with an EVC system and D1 and D2 engines with MDI block, but it can be used with engines of other manufacturers.

On most vessels, the Device starts working upon installation, with no configuration needed. But we're happy to point out that it has a wealth of diagnostics capabilities and settings. Because of this, it can often be used on vessels where there are complications with analog equipment from various manufacturers.

The YDEG-04 is compatible with a wide range of NMEA 2000 devices. Raymarine SeaTalk NG, Simrad SimNet and Furuno CAN networks are branded versions of NMEA 2000 and differ only in the type of connectors. In its devices, Garmin uses the NMEA 2000 Micro connector that is compatible with the DeviceNet Micro connector. Our devices are supplied with different types of NMEA 2000 connectors, making it possible to connect them to networks of different manufacturers without any adapters.

The product does not send data to engine networks, and it has a high-voltage optical isolator between the NMEA 2000 and J1939 networks. The Device is designed to work on 12V or 24V engine networks.
