Engine Vision Operator’s Guide
Introduction

Introduction
Caterpillar Engine Vision System displays information for Caterpillar electronically controlled marine engines. The Engine Vision System displays current engine and transmission data, trip data, historical data, maintenance and diagnostic information, and troubleshooting information. It can also interface with vessel global positioning systems to display vessel position and speed. A single Engine Vision System can simultaneously display data for two or three engines. Each engine’s ECM is connected via Cat Data Link to Engine Vision.

Features
• Touch screen technology provides fast, easy access to desired information • Function keys mounted on the housing below the screen provide additional access to desired information • The high resolution, multi-colored LCD screen provides superior readability in all lighting conditions • Displays current engine operating parameters • Continually updates engine historical data • Global positioning display with GPS Interface Module • Graphic displays of critical operating parameters • Trip and lifetime histograms for engine speed and load • Trip and lifetime totals for engine operating hours, load factors, and fuel rates • Diagnostic information • Maintenance information

the main gauge screen will be the first screen displayed. 2 . The Engine Vision display will prompt the operator to cycle the power to the display (shut the power off then turn the power on). The factory software is the only software that gives the One Time Configuration menu. This sequence takes approximately one minute.Engine Vision Operator’s Guide Configuration and Power-Up Configuration The One Time Configuration menu will appear when the Engine Vision display is first powered up. The Main gauge screen will appear when the system is ready for operation. For all successive power-ups. When the engine family is confirmed. the Engine Vision display deletes the One Time Configuration menu. WARNING: ONE-TIME CONFIGURATION SELECT 3176B SELECT 3176C/3196 SELECT 3406E SELECT 3400C SELECT 3500 Power-Up Each time Engine Vision is powered up. NOTE: If the wrong family is selected. the system will go through a boot sequence. Select the appropriate engine family and confirm the selection. the correct engine configuration can be uploaded using the latest software update.
