GEAR | New output adaptor accurately shows fuel levels on MFDs from a single sender

Oceanic Systems (UK) has developed a new fuel sender to resistive output adaptor to allow a NMEA2000® sender to display on general MFDs and on the engine instruments display.

The easy to install adaptor simply connects from the NMEA2000® network to the resistive input connection on the engine ECU. The fuel level will show identically on both displays without needing a second resistive fuel sender in the tank, thus saving a considerable amount of installation time and cost.

Oceanic Systems designed the adaptor at the request of a number of boat builders who wanted to avoid multiple senders in each fuel tank to make the system more reliable while ensuring lower cost.

The unit is robustly constructed to the IEC60945 Maritime Navigational and Radiocommunications Equipment Standard to ensure high reliability and trouble free operation for many years.

The adaptor is manufactured to the NMEA2000® network standard and attaches to the network using a single “Micro” plug. It draws less than 50 mA from the network and is waterproof to IP67.
