Is my marine engine compatible with a Yacht Devices Engine Gateway?

Your engine should be compatible if it is a BRP Rotax,  Yanmar 4JH series, SmartCraft (Mercury, Mercruiser), J1939 engines (Caterpillar, etc.) and most Volvo Penta engines manufactured since 2004, and possibly some engines manufactured before 2000.

Compatible Volvo Penta engines:

  • with all versions of EVC-B, EVC-C, EVC-D, EVC-E (most modern engines manufactured since 2006);
  • D1 and D2 series with MDI (Mechanical Diesel Interface), for example D2-40F;
  • EDC III and EDC IV diesel engines (EMS 2.0, EMS 2.2);
  • with EVC-A MC (see customer’s video with D3-160A-A) and EVC-A EC (also known as EVCmc and EVCec);
  • EFI engines with MEFI4B ECU or later (gasoline, 2004-2005), with or without an EVC system installed;
  • all EGC engines (gasoline, 2005 and Later), with or without an EVC system installed.

Some engines require the addition of an adaptor cable to aid easy installation. Adaptor cables are Y cables, meaning that they are placed in the cable loom, usually to the tachometer allowing without disturbing the system and are easy to remove if required.

If you have dual engines you may require two gateways and adaptors. We will advise this when you contact us. In most cases the engine gateways do not require any programming. Sometimes with dual engine installations they need to be programmed to configure which is the port and starboard engine. If programming is required Yacht Devices Australia can complete this for your prior to shipping.

If you are unsure if one of the Yacht Devices engine gateways is suitable for your engine please drop us an email to with the engine make, model and serial numbers along with any photos you might have of the tachometer to assist us with determining which gateway and possibly adaptor are required.
