Compact gauge provides wealth of boat data

The new Veratron VMH 14 round all-in-one gauge is easily configured to display eight different data types. Combined with a Veratron VMH master device, the instrument is ideal for primary and secondary helm stations—either as a single unit or as part of a bank of units—on recreational and commercial vessels.


With a sleek, sun-readable mineral glass display, the VMH 14 device has a brushed stainless steel 59.9mm dia. bezel that matches any dash décor. The gauge is rated IPX7 waterproof for real-world marine conditions.


The Veratron VMH 14 features a clear and intuitive color graphic design with crisp, bold numbers, bar graphs and icons. It supports data input types such as voltage, fuel level, trim, coolant temperature, oil pressure and temperature, and transmission oil pressure and temperature. An integrated alarm can be set to alert the user if a received value reaches a preset threshold; when this occurs, the display will flash.


For fast installation, the Veratron VMH 14 has an easy-to-use 52mm spinlock. It has a nominal voltage of 12V from the EasyLink connection. Connecting the device is simple with its two AMP SuperSeal 1.5 connectors. This provides the ability to quickly daisy-chain up to 16 gauges to a VMH multifunction master such as the VMH 70 or VMH 35.


Configuring the Veratron VMH 14 is easy with the Android or iOS Veratron mobile app. Once the gauge type is selected, the display data and parameters are chosen. With a passive embedded NFC receiver, it's then simply a matter of tapping the mobile device against the gauge and allowing them to pair. If a new data set is desired, the steps are repeated for those values.


CE-, UKCA-, Reach-, RoHS-, and UL94-V0-certified, the Veratron VMH 14 costs $72.99. It comes with a two-year warranty.
