This range of Vetus marine diesel engines is based on ultramodern 4 and 5 cylinder common rail blocks. Developed and built especially for planing and semi-planing boats, the new VF rand is compact, lightweight and has lots of power and torque. With outputs from 140 to 250hp, reliability and fuel efficiency were other major considerations when developing these new engines.
This waterproof Vetus instrument panel, provided with 6 control-lights, a combined tacho / hourmeter, temperature gauge, an acoustic alarm and the starter switch, is standard supply. Instead of the engine panel shown, one of the other Vetus engine panels may be supplied. An engine panel for a second steering position may be supplied as well.
Electronic engine control module EC312 is used with the Vetus VF range of engines. The engine control may be used for single or twin electronically controlled engines, together with a mechanically or electrically controlled gearbox or stern drive. The connection between the handle and the control box utilizes CAN-bus technology. This enables serveral controls to be connected in a single system. Depending on the control type, the following functions are possible:
|Configuration||4 - Stroke cycle, twin camshaft, 16 valves|
