NEW GENERATION VF-4 CYLINDER COMMON-RAIL ENGINE Power output from 145-190hp CAN bus system, SAEJ1939 protocol Compact and lightweight Meets RCD2013/53/EU emission regulations The next generation VF-4 cylinder common-rail diesel engines with variable geometry turbochargers range from 145hp to 190hp. They are compact, lightweight and have an excellent power to weight ratio. Furthermore, they are extremely fuel-efficient. The new VF4 has a CAN bus system with SAEJ1939 protocol, but can also be used for NMEA2000. These engines are perfectly suited to newbuilds such as RIB’s, small tenders and lightweight motorboats and also as replacement engines. The new VF4 occupies the same footprint as the previous model. The new engines can be recognized by their V-shaped intercooler and a newly-designed top cover which can be used as a step, giving this range the well-known VETUS appearance. The wiring is of high-grade material and therefore less prone to interference, while components have been rearranged for easier accessibility and maintenance. The VF engines are available in gearbox and sterndrive versions: as an option the engines can be supplied with a potentiometer in case a mechanical remote control is required. The VF line meets the RCDS2013/53/EU emission regulations. Durability, reliability and performance A compact and powerful engine which is very reliable and durable Excellent power-to-weight ratio and highly fuel-efficient Sturdy top cover which can be used as a step Good service accessibility and easy maintenance A potentiometer and trolling valve are available as an option Complete 'around the engine' package
