The engine information is carried on a network, just like your cable TV which may have hundreds of channels carried through one cable that attaches to either a box or to the back of the TV and you select which channel to watch.  The engine info to an ICON display gauge works the same way, it's carried through a cable, and you select what information you want displayed on the screen.

A "rigging kit" would have a shift/throttle control , a private network cable, a NMEA 2000 public network cable, and all the components to build a network.
