NMEA 2000 CAN Bus System


NMEA 2000 is a CAN Bus protocol used to allow various marine instruments, including engines
that meet the NMEA 2000 standard to be connected to one central cable creating a
communication network. According to the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) this
allows one display unit to show many different types of information. It also allows the instruments
to work together, since they share data on the CAN Bus. NMEA 2000 is meant to be
“plug and play” to allow devices made by different manufacturers to talk and listen to each other.

Yanmar utilizes the NMEA 2000 protocol on its 4BY, 6BY, 6LY3 and 6CX engine families for both
input and output signals, thus allowing the user to select a variety of Controls, Gauges and Digital
Displays as long as they are NMEA 2000 compliant.
