Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket has introduced a new line of round instrumentation for use in heavy-duty trucks, buses, and off-highway equipment. The VDO SingleViu instrument series features a dual input that allows operation with analog signals and digitally with CAN bus. The new line performs all of the functions of the prior VDO Vision, ViewLine, and CANcockpit instrument lines.
The VDO SingleViu line is available in 74 variants for original equipment, retrofit, or service replacement. VDO SingleViu is easy to use and provides an excellent user interface via the LCD display on the speedometers and tachometers. The SingleViu line includes 2-1/16 in. (52mm) dia. gauges for temperature, fuel, pressure, tachometer, DEF, voltage, amperage, and hourmeter. Speedometers and tachometers are also offered in 3 3/8-in. (80/85mm) and 4-in. (100mm) diameter.
VDO SingleViu instruments accept input from digital CAN bus connection (CAN SAE J1939) and commercially available analog sensors. They feature an adaptable sensor curve or an adaptable pulse count and can be configured with the SingleViu ConfigTool or the LCD screen (speedometers and tachometers). The gauge’s electrical connection uses a Molex MX150 connectors. Continental also touts the fact that the instrument line is built to be durable in various weather conditions, and readable with a 240° display angle and RGB LED background illumination.
