Frequently Asked Questions

Our FAQ’s are here to help answer common and rare questions about the VeeConnect digital switching system including the VeeConnect unit, the T5/T7i Displays and the H1 Modules that can be combined to create a switching solution. Questions about what can be connected to it & switched by it are covered in the Switched Loads category.

If your question is not listed please contact us and we will be happy to help.

Displays (T5/T7i)

Yes the VeeConnect unit and T5/T7i display can work on 12 or 24 VDC systems, but by NMEA requirements the NMEA 2000 network can only be a 12 VDC system.

We offer an extend 4 year warranty from date of manufacture.

Unfortunately not at the moment but we are considering it for the future.

Yes, IP67 all the way around and IP66 as well from the front above the dash.

Yes. You are only limited by NMEA 2000 instance numbers, so in theory up to 255 displays, but realistically we would doubt you would need that many!

MFD's

Yes. However for initial configuration of the system is via our T5 or T7i displays. Then using the H1 module and a compatible MFD that has HTML 5 support our switches can be shown on the MFD. Alternatively if the MFD is NMEA 2000 and has a switch page our switches will show but will have limited functionality.

Modules (H1)

Not at the moment, but this will be a feature ‘coming soon’ to the H1 module.

Not at the moment, but this will be a feature ‘coming soon’ to the H1 module.

We offer an extend 4 year warranty from date of manufacture.

Add additional VeeConnect units up the amount needed. You are only limited by NMEA 2000 instances (up to 255) and the vessels current handling capabilities. Alternatively a feature coming soon to the H1 module will be the ability to add 4 switch loads to it up to .5 amps each load.

Switched Loads

Yes, the VeeConnect unit is hard wired to the load, so as long as the unit has power you can turn on and off devices using the buttons on the unit even if no NMEA 2000 network communication exists.

Yes, those are brought in the top connector of the VeeConnect unit and then configured to allow those switches to activate the load in the configuration menu.

Yes, you can control anything over 20 amps by connecting to a relay or solenoid, or you can use multiple channels tied together to get more the 20 amps (I.E. 40 amps you have to use two output channels to one switch input).

VeeConnect Unit

Yes, the VeeConnect unit is hard wired to the load, so as long as the unit has power you can turn on and off devices using the buttons on the unit even if no NMEA 2000 network communication exists.

Yes there is a simple copy configuration setting in the menu to copy the settings once configured.

Yes the VeeConnect unit and T5/T7i display can work on 12 or 24 VDC systems, but by NMEA requirements the NMEA 2000 network can only be a 12 VDC system.

We offer an extend 4 year warranty from date of manufacture.

No, that is a great benefit of VeeConnect, initial programming is really straight forward and a manual is ‘coming soon’ to assist. Other than normal tools to mount the unit and crimp wires to connector pins, what you may need to buy varies on how the boat is configured, and the additional parts like cables, wire looms, hardware or NMEA 2000 network parts you are using.
