As long as standards like NMEA 2000 take to lang to penetrate the market, more proprietary initiatives will have a chance. Brunswick’s SmartCraft is definitely one of them. Onan, the marine generator set manufacturer, signed a license agreement that will allow users to read data from Onan product through the SmartCraft Networked databus system.
“The user can view genset status, including AC voltage, AC frequency, coolant temperature, oil pressure, battery voltage, and genset hours; be alerted to a pre-alarm condition; and, if the genset shuts down, view the notification and diagnostic message in text. For the boatbuilder, the common display frees up valuable space previously taken by multiple monitoring devices.”
