More new products and digital switching coming soon!

Posted by Benjamin Stein on

Yacht Devices has been busy with several exciting new products.  New cabling adapters and additional engine support are availble on the YDEG-04 engine gateway.  The YDGS-01 exhaust gas sensor measures temperatures up to 800 degrees Celsius.  Plus, a new line of digital switching is coming very soon.  

Mercury Smartcraft Engine Adapter

Earlier in the summer Yacht Devices announced the availability of an adapter cable for Mercury Smartcraft engines allowing display of engine data using our YDEG-04 engine gateway from all Mercury Smartcraft enabled engines with the 10-pin diagnostic connector.  

  • Engine RPM
  • Engine Load (diesel)
  • Boost Pressure (diesel)
  • Manifold Pressure (gas)
  • Trim Position
  • Oil Pressure
  • Oil Temperature
  • Coolant Temperature
  • Battery Voltage
  • Fuel Flow
  • Fuel Level #1
  • Fuel Level #2
  • Fuel Pressure
  • Engine Run Time
  • Block/Water Pressure
  • Gear Pressure
  • Gear Temperature
  • Intake Manifold Temperature
  • SmartCraft Warnings and Faults

Yanmar 4JH Engine Adapter

Yacht Devices has also begun offering an adapter for the Yanmar 4JH series of engines.  Successful installations have been reported on 4JH45, 4JH57, 4JH80, and 4JH110 engines.  Please note that not all 4JH series engines are electronically controlled and those engines that aren't electronically controlled can't be integrated with our YDEG-04.  Supported date for Yanmar engines includes:

  • Engine RPM
  • Engine Load
  • Coolant Temperature
  • Oil Pressure
  • Battery Voltage
  • Engine Hours
  • Fuel Rate

Exhaust Gas Sensor

This fall Yacht Devices has announced a new Exhaust Gas Sensor capable of reading temperatures from 0 to 800 degrees Celsius.  This sensor can be used to measure the temperature of liquids, solids, and gases.  The sensor includes an M10 thermal interface bolt to allow direct placement of the temperature sensor within the area to be measured.  Like all new and current Yacht Devices sensors the exhaust gas sensor stores 48 hours of history within the device's RAM to allow retrieval and plotting of recent history.  

Digital Switching

In December Yacht Devices will start shipping a line of completely standards compatible digital switching products.  The YDCC-04 is a 4 circuit digital switching module with control of four load circuits and switch inputs for four switches.  Additionally, each switch channel has a connection for a status LED indicating the current channel status.  

The YDSC-04 is a switch control module allowing control of a YDCC from another location.  It supports four switches and four status LEDs allowing full control of switched loads from any other location with an NMEA-2000 connection.  

With our NMEA-2000 WiFi Gateway, you will be able to view the status of and control loads on YDCCs.  Additionally, any NMEA-2000 devices supporting  PGNs 127502 (Switch Bank Control) and127501 (Binary Status Report) will be able to control YDCCs.  

YDCC-04 circuit controllers will be $299 while the YDSC-04 switch controller will be $149 and both will be available in December of 2018.
