[CA11] Use the ECI-100 Universal Engine and Control Interface with our GS Series MFD?
Hi We have the GS series MFD's (2008 vintage) and everything works well. We recently upgraded the firmware and now there are screens for engine readouts. Is the ECI-100 compatible with our system? If so, is there a cable to go from our Cummins QSC8.3 engine J1939 plug to Nema 2000? Cheers, Kevin

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum polingk,

Per the ECI-100's webpage, the ECI-100 is exclusively compatible with Volvo, Yamaha, Yanmar, Honda, and Caterpillar engine systems. You may want to check with Cummins to determine whether your Cummins engines are compatible with Mercury Marine's SmartCraft to NMEA 2000 engine gateway. If so, then the third party engine gateway would simply be interfaced as a spur to the system's SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone.

Chuck: Thank you for the update. I was hoping that the ECI-100 would allow me to bypass the SmartCraft by connecting to the Cummins J1939 connector. There is a "third party" that has a system to do this but I was hoping to keep it Raymarine. If not I will follow your suggestion to the Smartcraft option. Cheers, Kevin

polingk,

You may also want to consider looking at Maretron's J2K100 Engine Gateway, as it advertises support for Cummins engines.

Thanks Chuck, that was the "other product" I was referring too. Cheers, Kevin
