J1708 Engine Gateway YDES-04

The J1708 Engine Gateway from Yacht Devices is able to connect Volvo Penta EDC and J1708 engines to a NMEA 2000 marine network.

The engine gateway allows the display of engine parameters including revolutions (RPM), Temperature, hours, fuel rate and other data on a chart plotter connected to a NMEA 2000 network.

If programming of the engine gateway is required we will do this free of charge prior to shipping to ensure your installation is plug and play.
