How Does Unichip Marine Increase Safety?
The initial aim of Unichip Marine was to improve performance, however the scope of the project soon expanded to include safety. Unlike the automotive industry, boating engine technology lags far behind, and many boat owners report issues with engine safety and reliability – mainly caused by the marine environment. Typical problems include engines overheating, faulty wiring, corrosion and fuel quality issues, something that rarely occurs with our daily use of cars.
What exacerbates these problems is that many boat owners are totally unaware that their boat engines are in such bad shape. Although there is instrumentation on the dashboard with warning alarms for coolant temperatures and oil pressure, there is often so much happening on a boat, that many operators don’t comprehend what is happening. Or even more problematic is when the gauges on the boat are not even working, so the operator doesn’t even know that equipment on the boat is malfunctioning.
