Using the ECI-100, it's possible to connect selected Yamaha outboard engine systems.
By doing so it is possible to display the following engine data on a connected Raymarine multifunction display.
Connection of your ECI-100 to a compatible Yamaha engine system couldn't be simpler. Depending on the age and type of your engine, Raymarine have provided a simple single-cable solution:
For all new and recent Yamaha outboard engine systems, a multi-link hub should be available. This will have 6 connections. 1 of the device connections must be available in order to connect your ECI-100.
For this connection, you will need the Yamaha Link Cable (Raymarine Part Number: E70242). The Yamaha Link Cable is connected between the NMEA2000 (DeviceNet) connector of the ECI-100, and the available socket on the Yamaha Command-Link or Command-Link Plus hub.
For engine data only, the connection between ECI-100 and Yamaha outboard engine system is identical (as shown in the diagram below) but fitting the Raymarine EV-2 is not required.
EV-2 is connected to the Raymarine backbone via a SeaTalkng spur cable (white SeaTalkng plug on EV-2 to be used).
1. SeaTalkng spur cable between the SeaTalkng backbone and the EV2's SeaTalkng connector.
2. ECI-100 unit
3. STng network power supply (12 V dc)
4. EV-2 - Evolution™ autopilot
5. Raymarine Yamaha Link Cable (E70242)
6. Yamaha outboard engine system bus
7. Yamaha Command-Link or Command-Link Plus Hub
These Yamaha outboard engine systems have the ability to display engine data on Raymarine’s latest generation of multifunction displays using the ECI-100.
Shown below are Yamaha engines which may have a compatible Yamaha electronic control system fitted.
Important: Not all engines have a Command-Link or Command-Link Plus system fitted as standard. Please check with your local engine dealer to ensure that you have a compatible system fitted to your boat before proceeding.
