Raymarine and ePropulsion collaborate to extend Axiom display

Engine data from ePropulsion’s electric motors can now be shown on Raymarine’s Axiom displays without additional gateways or interface boxes.

The integration will allow boaters to monitor data and status updates on Axiom’s engine dashboard application, such as battery level, speed, gear, and estimated range.

“The team has worked hard to lead the industry in making electric propulsion more accessible,” said Danny Tao, co-founder and CEO, ePropulsion.

“The engineering team at Raymarine has been so supportive in incorporating the vital data from our engines to give customers a seamless and intuitive engine data display.

“We are very proud to work with Raymarine in this effort and know that the results will speak for themselves.”

ePropulsion has adopted the NMEA 2000 standards for electric engines, and Raymarine’s recently released LightHouse 4.6 operating system for Axiom chartplotters enables the electric motor to support PGN messages.

In addition, a range ring overlays on the chartplotter display, for users to visualise the current cruising range and enabling optimised energy consumption.

The new functionality is available on ePropulsion’s X Series outboards and I-Series inboard motors and compatible Raymarine Axiom displays.

 “It’s always been important for us to provide users with all the information they may need to make their on-the-water experience as smooth as possible,” added Grégoire Outters, Raymarine general manager.

“It has been incredible working alongside one of the most innovative electric engine manufacturers to bring industry-first functionality to a previously under-represented class of boater.

“We’re confident that those who’ve adopted electric propulsion will appreciate the forward thinking of ePropulsion and Raymarine.”
