The engine and other components are controlled by the electronic control unit (ECU) found in modern cars and trucks. An ECU resembles a home computer or laptop in that it has internal pre-programmed and programmable computer chips.
The vehicle’s engine computer, or ECU, uses input sensors like the crankshaft sensor and camshaft sensors and output components to regulate all engine functions.
The ECU uses a programme that is stored on a programmable memory chip inside the ECU to compute the information. The ECU programme will use the entered sensor data to determine the required output, such as how much fuel to inject and when to spark the coil.
A self-contained outboard motor is a type of boat propulsion system that is attached to the outside of the transom and has an engine, gearbox, propeller, or jet drive as part of the unit. They are the most popular type of motorised small watercraft propulsion.
Outboard motors not only provide propulsion but also steering control because they are built to swivel over their mountings and change the thrust’s direction. When the motor is off, the skeg also serves as a rudder. Outboard motors may be easily taken apart for storage or repairs, unlike inboard motors.
The Global outboard motor ECU market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Mercury Marine revealed it would begin producing electric outboard motors. Since the introduction of its Fathom 1 power management system for the Sea Ray SLX-R 400e, Mercury has been working with electric propulsion.
The Fathom 1 system is a lithium-ion battery pack that provides an environmentally friendly alternative to gas-powered generators and can be used to power all boat devices, eliminating the need to carry a charger on board.
According to Yamaha, HARMO is a fully functional electric outboard system. Propulsion is provided by a rim-drive electric motor. The motor is situated towards the outside edge of the four-blade, specially designed aluminium impeller.
The 3.7 kW motor delivers 225 pounds of static thrust when powered by a 48-volt source.The 121-pound motor runs essentially in silence. HARMO consists of the Helm Master EX joystick control and integrated digital-electric steering.
The device has the ability to spin whenever needed.The engine can be totally removed from the equation by tilting it up to 74 degrees. Installation of HARMO can be done with one or two units. The twin system can be used to manoeuvre a boat up to 32 feet long.
