April 17, 2015 07:00 PM
Grayhill, Inc. has released its new 5-inch touch screen display for construction and agriculture vehicles. The Series3D50 combines a powerful processor with intuitive software tools for developing custom graphics, text messages and gauges for monitoring and interacting with an off-highway vehicle’s engine control unit (ECU) and other onboard systems.
Series 3D50 features intuitive touch technology to select objects and swipe through screens. An advanced sensor automatically recognizes between bare and gloved hands, even when the display surface is wet. Utilizing a 5-inch backlit WVGA LCD, users benefit from the high contrast text and graphics for excellent sunlight readability. A scratch-resistant, anti-glare window is bonded to the LCD to protect it and enhance optical characteristics.
Creating a custom user experience is easy with the options offered. For software developers, Grayhill offers Qt – a trusted cross-platform development solution. Programmers can quickly create applications that will run on the Series 3D50 Display and interact with other elements of their on-board system such as ECU’s, cameras, discrete I/O, and other J1939 devices.
For users with minimal programming experience, Grayhill’s proprietary VUI Builder is a software tool designed for quick and easy development. VUI Builder is used to create screens and graphic objects that display real-time gauge data, alert messages, clocks/run meters, diagnostics, maintenance information, machine setups and operator instructions.
Application development is easy with sample applications and a development kit that includes a USB to Ethernet adapter for easy PC connectivity. The development kit includes a flush mounted display that seamlessly integrates into any cab design.
To benefit OEM and aftermarket customers, Series 3D50 is available in three standard configurations most appropriate to their application: 1) with only RS-232, USB and 1 CAN port; 2) with the addition of a second CAN port, 2 video connections plus I/O; and 3) with the addition of a projected capacitive touch screen.
Grayhill’s 3D Series displays are built for the rugged conditions and harsh environments common in agriculture and construction vehicles. All displays in the 3D Series undergo rigorous testing to ensure they meet the ISO and ANSI specifications, such as environmental seal, temperature range and electrical conditions.
The release of the 3D50 touch screen display further enhances Grayhill's capabilities in developing custom dashboards and control panels to meet the unique price, performance and aesthetic requirements of each customer.
