AMETEK C-COM 2G Modular Gauge Offers Durable Utilty and Increased Uses

Intuitive Modular System Prepared for New Environmental Regulations

GRAND JUNCTION, CO—The C-COM 2G (CAN-Communicator 2-inch Graphic Display) is the most recent addition to AMETEK Vehicular Instrumentation Systems’ industry- leading Next Generation Instrumentation system. The C-COM 2G’s clear and compact 2” screen, accompanied by an intuitive 3-switch interface, relays vital, real-time vehicle information that keeps both the driver safe and the vehicle in excellent operational condition.

This fully digital system guarantees an easy-to-use driver experience by featuring a 56x106 pixel, backlit, liquid crystal display (LCD). Its state-of-the-art J1939 message center features customizable backlit switches in red, green, blue, amber, or white. Its dead-fronted warning indicator, positioned directly above the graphic display window, can be customized to flash red or amber, when the driver needs to be alerted to vehicular problems.

The C-COM 2G is designed to communicate a myriad of relevant vehicle information. When monitoring the vehicle, the instrument reports speed, engine hours, engine oil PSI, engine temperature, battery voltage, turbo boost pressure, transmission oil temperature, and alerts the driver to potentially unsafe conditions. The C-COM 2G also can provide fuel economy, predictive cruise control, tire pressure monitoring information. Additionally, the module can be customized to provide information specific vehicle function information. 

The C-COM 2G aids operators in complying with stringent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards. It is able to monitor diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) as well as other by-product and exhaust levels. Measuring these levels is crucial to ensuring a vehicle adheres to Tier 4F requirements.

The C-COM 2G is as durable as it is functional. It is resistant to dust and water, sealed to IP67 specifications, and has an operating temperature up to 185° F or 85° C.

These rugged qualities make the C-COM 2G perfect for application in a wide range of vehicles. This includes 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.

The C-COM 2G may be used completely autonomously. However, by connecting to an SAE J1939 (CAN) data bus, this gauge can be aggregated as a complement to current diagnostic and display instrumentation.

AMETEK VIS is a leading manufacturer of custom dashboard instruments and displays for heavy trucks, construction, and agricultural equipment and a division of AMETEK, Inc., a global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with 2012 sales of more than $3.3 billion.
