Construction machines, heavy machinery, generators and pumps often work 24/7 under the harshest conditions. The operating status of the machines must be constantly monitored to ensure maximum and most economical use. In older machines, this is mostly done via analog displays or rudimentary and monochrome displays. Old machines/engines are by far not as electrified as new state-of-the-art systems.
For example, they have integrated modern exhaust aftertreatment technology and many more sensors, but have also become much more complex as a result. Simple analog display instruments are often no longer sufficient to show all measured or added values and error messages correctly and in detail. Thanks to the use of standard interfaces (CAN, J1939), the multifunctional 5-inch display is the perfect solution for OEMs or for retrofitting older machines.
In a joint development with a leading engine manufacturer, Sontheim has developed a display that can withstand the harsh environmental conditions and at the same time enables the user to monitor his machine holistically, based on open standards. It is characterized by protection class IP67, meets the highest environmental requirements and can be operated intuitively using five illuminated buttons. The modern 5-inch display with 16 million colors enables the visualization of all system data, from simple error messages to detailed analyses of the machine and individual alarm messages. Analog and digital IOs ensure easy connection of customer-specific legacy systems such as switch contacts, sirens or signal lights. This is achieved by using open standards. The visualization of the GUI is generated by means of diagnostic data and thus already includes an integrated standard-compliant diagnosis. The Modular Diagnostic Toolchain 2.0 can be used to create the graphical interfaces. As a result, the system offers, for example, a very fast and easy integration of multilingualism, which simplifies a worldwide use significantly. The reuse of source code for various applications such as diagnostics, development or test tools can also be easily compiled on this platform.
Permanent monitoring and convenient visualization of machine conditions. With its 16 million colors, the display also enables complex graphic surfaces.
A CAN and J1939 support enable holistic analyses. The ODX and OTX standard offers integrated embedded diagnostics and numerous convenience functions.
