CAN-Communicator 2-inch Graphical Gauge (C-COM 2G)

CAN-Communicator 2-inch Graphics Vehicle Gauge
This 2-inch gauge with a graphics display can be easily customized for your specific vehicle application.   It's ideal for stand-alone applications or to expand an instrumentation system.  The C-COM 2G is designed and tested for rugged applications, and interfaces directly to the J1939 CAN data bus, so it can be installed anywhere on a vehicle.

A standard version is available, but the 2G is highly configurable to your specific application.  Backlight colors, application specific graphics and functions, and decals can all be created for you specifically.

As with all VIS products, our engineering team collaborates with your team to develop exactly what you want.  Our investment in versatile design software and best-practice project management, as well as our state of the art in-house engineering testing lab, ensures you a quality product to complement any vehicle system.

    AMETEK VIS' C-COM 2G CAN-Communicator provides the advantages of a graphic display in a compact, 2-inch, gauge form-factor. This rugged and versatile gauge can be used exclusively or as a complement to any existing instrumentation simply by connecting it to an SAE J1939 CAN data bus.  The C-COM 2G can be customized specifically for your application.

    The backlit liquid crystal (LC) display is 106 pixels wide and 56 pixels high, providing clear, legible graphics for operators to view vehicle status and potential issues.   A dead-fronted warning indicator (red, amber or green) is positioned above the graphic display window to further alert the operator.  Three backlit switches with tactile feedback provide a user interface to easily navigate the menu system.  

    The C-COM 2G gauge is sealed to IP67 specifications both front and rear. The gauge operates from 9 to 32 volts DC and includes a switch-to-ground output that can be used to control an external annunciator, relay, or other device.  An optional analog input is available for increased flexibility.  Designed to withstand harsh conditions typical of off-road environments, the 2-inch graphic display gauge meets all SAE and ISO requirements for vehicular instrumentation.
