By Mike Osenga19 December 2018
Danfoss Power Solutions has expanded its Plus+1 family of mobile machine products with the new DM430E Series display. Targeted at material handling, road building, construction, agriculture, turf care and specialty off-highway applications, the new display is designed to provide OEMs and operators with a modern machine interface with outdoor screen viewability, an environmentally robust design, simple screen set-up and a range of flexible features.
The optically-bonded and anti-glare coated 4.3 in. color display is optimized for usage in all lighting conditions, providing sunlight viewability and wide viewing angles. In darker settings, the light sensor automatically adjusts screen brightness and switches between day and night display themes.
Through the updated engine information center (EIC) application, OEMs can directly set up the display without any programming. The application connects more than 4000 J1939 engine signals with a set of pre-defined screen graphics, saving development time and resources.
OEMs have the option of a four-button or navigation-buttonkeypad, providing flexibility to optimize to machine requirements. The displaycan be oriented in portrait or landscape, direct RAM mounting capabilities andthe opportunity to add USB and RS232 connectivity features, Danfoss said.
