    Gas Fume Detector For NMEA 2000?

    Is there a gasoline fume detector sensor available that connects to a NMEA 2000 network? If so I cannot find one.

    If I can connect a sensor to a NMEA MFD then I would not need to find another 2 inch hole in my helm somewhere. I started thinking about this when I began planning on installing a gasoline fume detector like the

    I cannot get the link to work for some reason but it is not that important to the question.

    I guess this one has everybody stumped.

    I still have not found one either except for perhaps a maretron sensor but I think it detects propane. Oh well. I guess I will get the xintex and find a place for another 2 1/16 inch hole. I need a bigger helm.

    I ended up adding the MB-1-R gas detector that operates the blowers in event of alarm in a new custom trim template. I currently have it wired without a switch and it is active all the time unless the main battery is switched to 'off'. I may add an inline switch but it draws less than 200ma so it could operate for about 25 days before draining the battery.

    You can see the panel I used to install the gas detector in the above thread. When I took the picture it was not the final install so the detector is not centered yet.
