    AMETEK VIS' C-COM LMC is part of a modular system that can satisfy the instrumentation requirements for all vehicle platforms. The C-COM LMC can be used independently, as part of the C-COM advanced system, or as a replacement to the current LMC with NGI gauges.

    The large, easy-to-read graphics display provides real time data information, diagnostics, fault codes, user set up features, and maintenance requirements. This rugged and versatile message center can be used in various applications.

    The lightbar collects data from the vehicle's J1939 serial communications data bus, from discrete switch inputs, and from analog inputs. One of the J1939 CAN inputs can also be used as a J1587 data bus input. Three backlit switches with tactile feedback, along with soft-key prompts in the display, provide an easy, intuitive user interface.

    This message center is sealed to IP67 specifications both front and rear. Designed to withstand harsh conditions typical of off-road environments, the C-COM LMC meets all SAE J1455 and J1113 requirements for vehicular instruments.
