New Smart Gateway provides integration with external MFDs

ePropulsion’s new Smart Gateway will integrate data from its ePropulsion Spirits, Navy and Pod electric motors with external MFDs via NMEA 2000.

The introduction of the Smart Gateway follows ePropulsion’s recent move to bring X Series electric outboard and I-Series electric inboard engine data to external MFD without the need for an additional gateway or interface box.

Nextfour’s Q Experience displays are the first to be integrated with the gateway.

 The Smart Gateway measures 8.8cm by 5cm and weighs 140 grams and is connected in between the throttle and motor with an additional port allowing for the connection to the display.

After integrating with the Q Experience, information such as battery state of charge (SOC) and engine power of the ePropulsion system are then displayed.

ePropulsion and Nextfour have a shared vision of making boating safer and more enjoyable.

“We’re delighted to bring this compatibility to our full line of electric motors via the ePropulsion Smart Gateway,” said Danny Tao, CEO of ePropulsion. “ePropulsion and Nextfour have a shared vision of making boating safer and more enjoyable.

“Our Smart Gateway lets ePropulsion customers take full advantage of the powerful features packed into Nextfour displays. We thank them for their trust and collaboration.”

Niklas Öhman, CEO, Nextfour, added: “It’s been excellent working with the design team from ePropulsion on this collaboration.

“The entire ePropulsion product line demonstrates exceptional innovation, and we are very excited to be able to offer our feature-packed Q Experience displays to their customers.”

Available in 10in to 24in touchscreen sizes, the Q Experience integrates the onboard computer, chart plotter, security and monitoring functions, and entertainment system into one device.

The Smart Gateway will be available autumn 2024.
