Halyard will be launching an updated version of its popular HMI Exhaust Alert System at the Schroder’s London International Boat Show. The HMI Alert System is designed to warn boat users if a marine diesel exhaust system starts to overheat. This can occur if the water used to cool the exhaust gases is cut off. This could be due to a plastic bag, or seaweed being sucked into the intake, or if the water pump fails. First developed over eight years ago, the new HMI Alert System has been redesigned to give a cleaner, more modern look. All the components of the new Mk2 system are compatible with the Mk1 versions, enabling boat owners to easily update the system if required.

By undertaking a complete re-design of the HMI Alert System, Halyard has been able to incorporate many new features into the system. They have also taken advantage of the feedback gathered from hundreds of users, and OEMs, such as production boat builder Fairline, which incorporates HMI Alert System as a standard fit.The HMI Alert System is available as a single system (i.e. one engine) and expands up to a triple system for two engines and generator. A single system retails at £158.03 inc VAT.
