The Actisense Engine Monitoring Unit (EMU-1) from Gemeco Marine Accessories lets boaters digitize analog engine data, allowing you to monitor engine information from any NMEA 2000 display.

"The EMU-1 has been designed so engine information is easily shared on the NMEA 2000 bus, removing the need and expense associated with changing an existing engine," Phil Whitehurst, managing director of Active Research Ltd., stated in a press release. "This changes the way analog-to-NMEA data conversions are done."
The EMU-1 can digitize as many as six parameters or gauge inputs in parallel, or can digitize four alarms, two tachometer inputs and two auxiliary inputs, depending on the configuration needed for various engine makes and models.

“We are gathering feedback from customers to understand what they want the EMU-1 to support so we can prioritize adding additional features,” Whitehurst added.

Gemeco distributes the complete Actisense line of NMEA interfaces in the United States. Look for the EMU-1 at the 2014 Miami International Boat Show in the Fugawi-Northport Systems’ booth, or visit
