Raymarine has launched a new ECI-100 Universal Engine and Control Interface. The ECI-100 bridges the gap between engine instrumentation, drive-by-wire propulsion systems, and Raymarine network navigation systems. The ECI-100 collects and connects engine information to give simple and immediate access to engine performance data, fuel consumption and alarms via customizable information screens on multifunction displays (MFDs). The ECI-100 is compatible with Volvo Penta, Yamaha Marine Command Link Plus, Caterpillar and Yanmar Marine engines and is a full-function autopilot interface for Volvo Penta IPS and Yamaha Helm Master propulsion systems.
