Ametek C-COM 3AD Gauge is Latest Addition to CAN-Communicator Dashboard Display Family
Versatile 3-Inch Analog Gauge with Display Satisfies Instrumentation Requirements for Many Vehicle Platforms
GRAND JUNCTION, CO — The C-COM 3AD (CAN-Communicator 3-inch Analog Gauge with Display) is the most recent addition to AMETEK Vehicular Instrumentation Systems’ industry- leading Next Generation Instrumentation system. The C-COM 3AD is a highly versatile, stand-alone gauge that can satisfy the instrumentation requirements for a wide range of vehicle platforms.
The modular 3-inch analog gauge can be connected directly to an SAE J1939 (CAN) data bus. The gauge also is designed to accept a pulsed input or a NMEA-0183 GPS received on its USB input. It features a multi-function, backlit, 13-segment, 7-digit alphanumeric liquid crystal display that can provide odometer and hourmeter information, tachometer, coolant temperature or any other vehicle information. Gauge decals can be customized or chosen from a wide variety of standard decals..
With the addition of optional external buttons, the gauge’s menu system can be expanded to include additional vehicle data, two resettable trip mileage and hours functions, diagnostic fault codes and warning messages. As a GPS speedometer, the C-COM 3AD can monitor vehicle speed without wheel or drive train sensors. Two optional dead-fronted LED telltale indicators can be customized per application and controlled by switched inputs or J1939 data bus.
The C-COM 3AD is durable as well as functional. The gauge is sealed to IP67 specifications and designed to withstand harsh conditions typical of off-road environments. It meets all SAE J1455 and J113 requirements for vehicular instrumentation. The gauge operates on 9 to 32 volts DC and includes multi-option inputs than can be used for resistive, analog, pulsed or USB inputs.
The rugged qualities and versatility of the C-COM 3AD make it a perfect choice for a wide range of vehicles, including heavy trucks; military vehicles; buses, coaches and recreational vehicles; forklifts, wheel loaders and skid steers; cranes, road-building and construction equipment; earth-moving and mining vehicles; utility and emergency vehicles; and farm and agricultural vehicles, as well as stationary engine instrumentation.
