Raymarine collaboration will allow ePropulsion to send engine data direct to Axiom displays

Date: 17-Jun-2024

A collaboration between electric motor manufacturer ePropulsion and marine electronics specialists Raymarine means boaties will be able to display the engine data from their ePropulsion motors directly onto Raymarine’s Axiom MFD displays, without the need for any additional gateways or interface boxes.

This seamless integration means ePropulsion owners will be able to monitor data and status updates, such as battery level, speed, gear and estimated range, directly onto their Axiom’s engine dashboard application. In addition, a smart dynamic range ring overlay on the chartplotter display will make it easy for boaties to instantly know their current cruising range, and enable them to optimise their energy consumption.

This clever new functionality is available on ePropulsion’s innovative X Series outboards and I-Series inboard motors and follows the release of Raymarine’s new 4.6 LightHouse operating system for Axiom MFDs, which is the first to support electric motor PGN messages, along with ePropulsion’s adoption of the new NMEA 2000 standards for electric engines.

Mark Milburn, CEO of New Zealand Raymarine distributor Lusty & Blundell, says the collaboration is a real win for owners of ePropulsion engines.

“Thanks to the way Raymarine engineers have been able to incorporate all of the vital data from the motors, ePropulsion owners will be able to enjoy a seamless and intuitive engine data display right where they want it ¾ on their Axiom displays".
