1st Official Release for Marine Applications

Unread postby decipha » Wed Feb 26, 2014 10:08 am

time is getting nearer so just thought id post an update

Ive recently been focusing my spare time on releasing the DEC to a couple local suppliers of marine engines. One of our local and really close affiliates is a large nationally known boating vendor that specializes in 800-1500+hp blown boat engines. They mainly use the MEFI 4 and MEFI 5 systems on their boats but that leaves a lot to be desired. The systems they use work fine but do not have much as far as failsafes go and after the fact tuning support for boat owners. It also requires that the engines be removed from the boat for tuning and then reinstalled which can be a bit of a hassle. In any case, ive been contacted by their lead dyno tuner to have the DEC meet all of their demands that the MEFI just cannot provide.

Some of their requests include, all the DEC's failsafes (oil pressure monitoring, fuel pressure monitoring, closed loop feedback and cognitive corections, multiple air charge temp sensors monitoring, cylinder head temp and ect, crank sensor fault failsafe, etc...)

In the next few days ill be ordering some pieces parts to hand assemble 10 dec's for testing.

Ill also be working on a possible feedback prop speed correction to prevent the engine from taching out going through rough waves when the prop momentarily becomes unloaded

..Should be fun, ill update more as it unfolds

Also ive decided against using version and revision numbers instead all DECs will be stamped with the year month and day of manufacture for version history, since they will all be identical

We plan on boating when the weather gets a little warmer :)

Right now Introductory pricing is $3,000 each and im working on including a plug and play DEC to MEFI harness adapter connector for them.

Price is ALOT more than what i was shooting for, but thats the best price i can feasibly do at this time, id really like to get it to half of that eventually but without having them mass bulk produced I just cant see that happening anytime soon. Heres the price list as of 2-26-2014 for reference (All in US funds).

Code: Select all
Units     Price   Each
1         3,000   3,000
2         5,000   2,500
5         10,000  2,000
8         15,000  1,875
12        20,000  1,667
20        25,000  1,250


If it makes anyone feel better that includes a free lifetime replacement warranty as well, so its truely the last ecu youd ever have to buy.

I included a poll up top for price feedback, its discreet so please be honest, I plan on doing group buys on the forum so everyone has a chance to buy one at a reasonable price if they desire. The bigger my parts order the better pricing I get on it.
