VirCru Engine Hours Sensor

Safe maintenance of your vessel requires you to have it serviced on a regular basis. Whilst these can be scheduled for a set date, it is much safer to have them when your boat hits a certain number of engine hours. This is of course different between different vessels and engine types. Keeping track of that at home, where you are most likely to book your service, could potentially lead to mistakes. Luckily, the VirCru Engine Hours Sensor eliminates that!
(Connects wirelessly to the VirCru Hub)


The VirCru Engine Hours Sensor is the perfect addition to your boat. With a simple installation, you can track the number of engine hours racked up over any given period – helping you plan services and maintenance effectively no matter where you are. And with the VirCru app, you can set alerts in advance so that nothing is ever a surprise!

Care should be taken when installing the sensor to ensure that it matches the installation instructions in the manual provided. Installing the sensor tag itself is as easy as attaching it to a flat surface using 3M™ Dual Lock™ Reclosable Fastener, which works similarly to traditional hook and loop fasteners.. But utilises a unique shape that ensures a stronger connection and better adhesion between surface and sensor.

With the VirCru app you can monitor your vessel’s engine hours with a few taps on your smart device of choice. Supported on both android and iOS, remotely monitoring and interacting with your boat has never been easier. The app is necessary for you, the user, to view the engine hours remotely. The Engine Hours Sensor communicates with the VirCru Connected Hub which then transfers the data to our servers and on to your app, allowing you to set alerts for when your engine is due a service. These can be set to trigger in advance so you do not get any unwelcome surprises. As an added bonus, the Engine Hours Sensor also keeps track of ambient temperature wherever the sensor is installed.
