The SeaGauge™ G12C (with the high-definition option) features a 640 x 480 resolution and 800 NIT LED backlight suitable for sunlight viewing. The new color touch screen display can access data directly off the NMEA 2000 if used with optional interface module instrumentation bus or through the company’s Sensor Interface Unit.
This instrumentation and display system with vDash™ software offers a wide selection of user configurable gauges, switches and indicators. Incorporating vivid color graphics, the SeaGauge G12C allows users to create and view 16 critical engine instrumentation functions for 1,2 or 3 engines or 2 engines and a generator. Gauges including fluid levels, EGT, boost pressures, oil temperature and pressures, voltages, current, tachometers, and more - warning of harmful operating conditions before engine damage occurs. The program also provides for sensor calibration thereby allowing the system to fit into virtually any application. When combined with the company’s optional NMEA 2000 compatible converter module, the system allows expanded viewing of most NMEA 2000 PGN’s as well as directly connected analog data inputs. The system allows for a one box solution providing USB, RS232 Serial, and NMEA 2000 interfaces, with optional Bluetooth and Wi-Fi adapters which expand the possible connections. All gauges and switches can be viewed and operated on any PC/ Laptop, SeaGauge color display or NMEA 2000 compatible display. Real-time engine data can be displayed and logged on any PC for easy viewing at a later date using the company’s vDash software.
SeaGauge G12C has multiple data ports that can switch between Sensor Interface Units to further increase instrumentation to over 32 functions or more on a single display. Optional SeaSwitch module provides 12 sealed relays for touch screen switching 15 amp circuits using the same SeaGauge G12C display and accessible over the NMEA 2000 network.
This large 5.7” color VGA touch panel has room to show all instrumentation required for dual engines on one screen. New high definition graphics provide a standard instrument panel with a traditional dial theme. Optionally, an “Open Source” Theme library allows users to custom design their own panels. Users can also select from a growing library of display graphics themes available on the company web site. Up to 16 user defined gauge arrangements and 12 switches or indicators can be accessed using touch sensitive commands. Additional gauges and switches can be added through digital expansion ports. All sensor inputs have High-Low alarm settings with a manual override feature.
The Company’s new NMEA 2000 interface adapter allows the SeaGauge G12C to directly display a growing list of PGNs including Engine Data (PGN 127488, 127489) Fluid Levels (PGN 127505), Battery Status (PGN 127508), Switch Status (PGN 127501), Weather Data (PGN 130323, PGN 130311, PGN 130306), Vessel Data (PGN 127250, PGN 127257) and more. The SeaGauge G12C display can also generate NMEA 2000 Switch commands (PGN 127502) to allow remote control of user defined switches via the weather-resistant touch panel.
