Kit delivers outboard data, more in compact package

Apr 25, 2022

The new VMH 35 Outboard Engine Kit from Veratron tracks a vast amount of propulsion, battery and navigation data, and displays it in a compact and stylish full-color round instrument. Simple to install and configure, it’s a complete plug-and-play monitoring kit for analog and NMEA 2000 marine outboards.

The heart of the Veratron kit is the next-generation VMH 35 gauge. Its mineral black glass front is optically bonded to the sun-readable full-color display. Perfect for exposed dashes and consoles, the instrument is waterproof to IPX7 standards—both front and back—and fits a standard 3-3/8″ round cutout. It draws a mere 170mA, a fraction of what a comparably-sized TFT screen uses.

Veratron’s VMH 35 Outboard Engine Kit has an intuitive interface powered by a quad-core microprocessor. This allows users to quickly cycle through displays with a fingertip, using the soft-touch controls. It has the capacity to provide 30 unique data sets including critical engine information such as fuel levels and RPMs up to 8,000.

The included Veratron Intelligent Battery Sensor (IBS) accurately and reliably monitors and displays temperature, voltage, current, state of charge, autonomy and overall battery health. This provides essential information needed to plan onboard power usage and prevent problems while on the water.

With the embedded GNSS receiver for GPS, GLONASS and Galileo, the VMH 35 Outboard Engine Kit will display speed, heading and position. Navigation data response is fast and smooth due to its 10Hz update rate, 72 channels and high tracking sensitivity.

Installing the kit is straightforward for both retrofit and OEM. The included wire harness with dedicated connectors makes the project fast and easy. Additional plugs are integrated into the system for expansion with optional accessories. A video is at Veratron’s VMH 35 Outboard Engine Kit is backed by a two-year warranty and costs $555.99 USD.
