Part of AMETEK’s NGI vehicular instrumentation system, CAN-Communicator (C-COM) is a compact 2-in graphic display module. The rugged, versatile gauge can be used either by itself or as a complement to existing instrumentation by connecting it to an SAE J1939 (CAN) data bus. Operating from 9- to 32-V dc, the module can display data directly from the vehicle databus or text and graphics as customer specified. The standard version includes data parameters of key vehicle operations as well as active and stored fault codes from the engine control unit along with pop-up warning messages. Applications for C-COM include a fuel-economy version with current and average mpg, trip and total fuel, and fuel rate (gal/h).
