We just completed the first HEFI batch and shipped some out last week.



Changed the board slightly, making the BLE modem optional since most new plotters include BT capabilities. I do have one of those prototype boards pictured above with the BT available if you just need wireless data logging off the Holley side.

Processor is the M4 series, and the board can be powered from either network cable. Now that HEFI is done, I've started working on a MegaSquirt and custom GMLAN version to cover stuff like the new LS and Duramax. PM me your contact details and I'll see what we can come up with.

Very interested in your product, working on a Holley EFI, Whipple 4.5L set up for my 43 Nortech and I'm in OH.
Wish I would have known about your project sooner, I would have offered up my boat for testing.
Contact me when you get a chance

Just sent ya an email with my contact #.

That would have definitely saved some mileage. Delsol has a sweet build underway and was great to work with. However he lives on the far side of the lake..

I also spoke with Haxby last week. He's logged some real world hours on a couple different boats now. Reports everything on the Holley setup seems to work as we designed it. So I've moved fwd this month with a high speed GMLAN version to support GM Duramax and the LS E67 ECM. Those E67 units could offer up some interesting tuning options over the current MEFI version, Soon as that's done, onto the Megaquirt version.

So my new boat has some custom Eddie Young motors that have a standard MEFI 4 computer. Could I utilized these on mine? I really want to go to a glass dash and have been searching for something like this. Thank you guys in advance.

Default New CANbus Gateway

After selling the last of our original CAN-2-CAN gateways last summer, I had to decide if it was worth while to build more. Small niche market with a very low profit margin for time to develop. The majority of that first run went to Holley EFI users on here. As time permitted I worked towards adding new ECM communication protocols like J1939, AEM, GMLAN and MEFI 5 along with some others. Seems like what ever new protocol I was working on at the moment, someone called looking for something different. Then next thing I know, all the gateways were gone. Thanks everyone..

After some pondering and prodding by a couple members who were late to the party, I broke down and ordered another run of boards. We modified this new design a bit, ditched the drop cables, and mounted the M12-5 connectors directly to the PCB and case. Should makes them a bit easier to mount, and offers new ability to unplug the board and take it to a desk for easy programing with PC. Which is the second major upgrade, ability to add, change, or program your own custom CANbus protocols or ARBID sets.

My embedded electronics guru buddy is still working on the PC configuration software, but 50 new units are on their way to me today. The preconfigured HEFI and other existing protocols I've re-engineered will be ready to ship next week. Soon as he finishes the software, they should be capable of translating between ANY modern CANbus protocols that exist today. GM, Ford, Chrysler, MB, ect, or any aftermarket ECM setup. So help a brother out and pass the word before my wife discovers the missing $$$$ I dropped on this endeavor, again...

Looking good Ken!

I'm going to be doing some testing with the new ES raymarine MFD this week. I'll give you as shout later in the week.

BTW-- you mentioned earlier about the ability to datalog from the holley through these units, how does that work? is there a way to store/download on the converters?

The ability to data log directly from the gateways was part of the original Bluetooth design we scrapped. You may have that same option available with the new Raymarine MFD however. The other choice is a USB connection to the ECM's directly to log.

Trying to get NMEA data on the cheap. OBDII to Bluetooth adapters are 15 bucks (LM32 based) and they make bluetooth serial to TCP/UDP bridge software. Would the relay the NMEA 2000 Canbus codes without monkeying with them, allowing my gauge software to read it? This is more for depth and such than motor, but kidturbo seems to know his stuff...

In theory you could take a standard OBD bluetooth adapter, set the correct baud rate, and listen to data on the NMEA bus with a phone or something. However I've never seen it done. It would require custom gauge software as OBD-II and N2k protocols share nothing else in common. Several new chart plotters have bluetooth modems built in, and offer accompany software.

We do have the J1939 to N2k version of the gateways completed if anyone needs them.
