Adjustable LED Position Indicators Available

Press Release
Friday, December 21, 2012

These state-of-the-art indicators by Livorsi Marine, Inc. are capable of reading CAN Bus protocols such as SmartCraft (with Gateway), NMEA 2000 and J1939, as well as 0-5 volt or resistive-type (ohms) inputs. The technology used for these indicators can be applied to a wide range of applications such as trim tabs, drives, jackplates, rudder indicators, water level, or fuel level.


The LED indicators can also eliminate the need for mechanical 33C cables which are typically used for drive and tab indication. These cables have a tendency to deteriorate, will fail over time, and are inaccurate due to lost cable motion. With the Livorsi LED indicators, mechanical cables are replaced by more reliable network wiring that allows ‘plug n play’ connectivity into existing tab or drive position sensors.
 

No matter what information you are looking to display (fuel level, drive trim, tab position, etc.), the data is brought into the communication network with ‘plug n play’ harnessing and is received (Rx) via the network cable to the LED indicator for display. The LED indicator can also transmit (Tx) this information via CAN bus to other compatible displays such as Garmin, Lowrance or Raymarine via NMEA 2000®, SmartCraft® (with gateway) or J1939 protocols.  If your boat is already transmitting (Tx) NMEA 2000® data (tabs, drives, fuel level, water level, rudder angle, etc.), simply plug the indicator into the NMEA 2000® backbone to begin displaying the desired feature on the indicator.

What sets these displays apart from anything else is the single middle green LED. What makes it so special is that fact that you can program it for indication of 50% set point; no matter what is being monitored. Or, you may establish the optimum running angle – or sweet spot (not at 50%), to dial-in the vessel for optimal running efficiency so the novice boater always runs at the correct trim. This is especially important when setting the device to work with a non-linear sender. By having the ability to introduce a ‘mid point’ setting, the indicator can more accurately track the entire range of operation, giving more resolution than if only a high and low point were known.


The super bright LED’s can be seen in direct sunlight even with polarized sunglasses. With a range of 250 brightness intensity levels, you are guaranteed the best view possible, day or night. We accomplish this with the use of an ambient light sensor which provides automatic adjustment of the LED brightness according to available light conditions.


Indicator configurations are available in a vertical or horizontal layout in 1, 2, 3 or 4 slots and are environmentally sealed to eliminate exposure to the elements. Each slot accommodates two analog inputs. One analog input drives the indicator bar, the other drives the optional red warning LED located at the bottom of the slot. Warnings may include (but are not limited to): Oil pressure, water temperature or low fuel to name a few.  And of course, don’t forget the many dial and bezel options available to match Livorsi throttles, gauges and accessories.


Calibration of the indicator is performed via the proximity/ambient light sensor located on the front of the unit. Simple to follow and easy to use step-by-step instructions are included to ensure installation and setup is a snap.
