Default RS11 + OX66 == NMEA200 (anyone done this upgrade?)

Has anyone ever installed one of the NoLandEng RS11 kits on their boat to get NMEA2000 data from their OX66's into their MFDs?

I'm highly considering buying one of their twin packs and installing it for my boat (twin ox66 200's).

Doesn't look too complicated other than spending some time at the PC calibrating everything.

Looks like one RS11 will support two motors, you might not need the twin pack. I'm interested to see how these work.

I guess the question is how do you get RPM, temps and pressures off the outboard easily?

all of this data can be obtained by tapping into the wires already running into the digital yamaha gauges.

If i do a single RS11, from what I understand, I should be able to get RPM from both motors, and, 3 analog signals from each.

i can then also add fuel flow sensors (like GFS-10), plug them into my nmea backbone, and, then, I should have a pretty complete MFD setup

sound about right?

Everything on my console is in real close proximity so the wiring should be easy enough

I'd just put the $600 towards gas.

I was unaware I could tap into the Yamaha gauges.

Keep me posted as I’ve been wanting to interface my 2003 Yamaha F225 to my Simrad GO9 but the engine doesn’t have the plug. Wasn’t available until 2005
or so.

Do you have a link to the wiring diagram for the gauges that show the pinouts? Would like to look into this myself.

The Yamaha gauges for an OX66 model (conventional multi-function tachometers) are analog gauges with a digital display. They are not digital gauges as are the Yamaha Command Link series of instruments.

Why not just put in fuel flow sensors and be done with it?

Yeah what more are you trying to gain here? Put the $600 towards the repower fund and enjoy the ox66s while you got em. Doesn't seem to make much sense trying to modernize these things. It would be cool, I just don't think it would be $600 cool.

A single RS600 can support two motors in the following way :

Port RPM
Stbd RPM
3 Analog inputs Port
3 Analog inputs Stbd

The inputs are configurable via the software as to what they correspond to ... you decide

with just one RS11 you can craft a screen on your MFD that’s got most of your instrumentation on it

some of you are making way too big of a deal over a few hundred bucks

or you’re arguing in favor of spending tens of thousands on new motors

I think if you do the fuel flow meters you'll be happy with the result and not need to worry about connecting the motors to the mfd.

Can't argue with that. Seems like a lot of cost and effort to get rpm and engine water temp to an mfd. What other data of value is coming out of a 2 stroke?

You haven't been around here to long have you?
That's a few (A few being $600) hunerd bucks for beer.
Seem's to me you are trying to push this product.
You don't need our permission or justification to spend your money, go for it.
Myself on the other hand, I know approx what I burn, and what my fuel tank has left with that little gauge. so I'm good to go.
