Connecting your ECI-100

Connection of your ECI-100 to the Volvo Penta engine* EVC System couldn't be simpler. Depending on the age of your engine, and type of installation, Raymarine have provided 2 cabling solutions:

Newer Volvo Penta engine* EVC Systems - with an available multi-link hub

For new and recent Volvo Penta engine* EVC systems, a multi-link hub should be available. This will have 6 connections, 1 of which must be available in order to connect your ECI-100.

For this connection, you will need the Raymarine Cable Link for use with Volvo Penta* Engine (Raymarine Part Number: E70240). This cable is connected between the DeviceNet connector of the ECI-100, and the available socket on the multi-link hub for use with Volvo Penta engines*.

If a Volvo Penta engine* IPS or Aquamatic steering system is fitted, then connecting an EV-2 as shown in the diagram below will give full autopilot steering control.

For engine data only, the connection between ECI-100 and Volvo Penta engine* EVC system is identical (as shown in the diagram below) but fitting the Raymarine EV-2 is not required.

EV-2 is connected to the Raymarine backbone via a SeaTalkng spur cable (white SeaTalkng plug on EV-2 to be used).

5 Raymarine Cable Link for use with Volvo Penta engines* (E70240)
6 System Bus for use with Volvo Penta engines*
7 Multi-Link Hub for use with Volvo Penta engines*

Older Volvo Penta engine* EVC Systems - where no multi-link hub is available

For older Volvo Penta engine* EVC systems where no multi-link hub is available, it is necessary to use the E70240 Raymarine Cable Link for use with Volvo Penta* in conjunction with a Y-splitter cable (E70241). This connects into the system as per the diagram.

Connecting the cables as per the diagram below will allow the ECI-100 to interface between the Volvo Penta engine* EVC data bus, and the Raymarine navigation STng bus.

If a Volvo Penta engine* IPS or Aquamatic steering system is fitted, then connecting a Raymarine EV-2 as shown in the diagram below will give full autopilot steering control.

For engine data only, the connection between ECI-100 and Volvo Penta engine* EVC system is identical (as shown in the diagram) but fitting the Raymarine EV-2 is not required.

Compatible Volvo* Systems

Your ECI-100 connects to the Volvo Penta engine* EVC system, as shown in the diagrams above.

The ECI-100 is compatible with the following Volvo Penta engine* EVC systems:

EVC-C
EVC-D
EVC-E
 

These Volvo Penta engine* EVC systems have the ability to display engine data on Raymarine’s latest generation of multifunction displays using the ECI-100.

What’s more, when an IPS or Aquamatic system is fitted with one of the compatible EVC systems, the ECI-100 enables Raymarine’s Evolution 9-axis sensor and adaptive autopilot full control of drive-by-wire steering without the need for a proprietary autopilot gateway.

Shown below are Volvo Penta* engines which may have a compatible EVC system fitted.

Important: Not all engines have an EVC system fitted as standard. Please check to see if the EVC is fitted, and of the correct type as shown above.
