Curtis introduces new 3.5 inch Color CAN programmable vehicle instrument

engageVI.jpgMount Kisco, NY. Curtis Instruments, Inc., a global technology leader in vehicle instrumentation and controls, has introduced a new product in the enGage® series of microprocessor based, programmable, CAN compatible instruments with powerful I/O capability for easy system integration. The Curtis enGage® VI is compact with a 3.5 inch display ideal for a wide variety of on- and off-road electric vehicle applications, including material handling, industrial, utility, and recreational.

The new enGage VI provides true versatility to vehicle OEMs, who can select between cased units and modules. Instrument designers benefit from a beautiful and effective array of graphic capabilities, colors, shapes and lines, as well as voltage options from 12–48VDC or 60–144VDC. Screen customization flexibility is virtually limitless. The enGage® VI & VII is a blank palette that allows the vehicle OEM to design a unique, special and fully customized panel fully suited to the application, with complete flexibility to match the instrument to the vehicle's display requirements, displaying many functions and instrument readings based on OEM defined functional and operational system parameters and thresholds. The enGage® VI & VII can be controlled and configured with the proprietary Curtis Vehicle Control Language (VCL) from a Curtis AC controller.

Like its predecessor, the enGage VII with 5.7 inch display, the more compact enGage VI features an exceptionally sharp, easy-to-read, high-resolution LCD screen for optimum viewing. Rich, vivid colors, sharp imagery, strong contrast and high-color vibrancy allow the perfect palette for designing virtually any custom screen. The unit has two color video inputs, both of which accept NTSC or PAL format. enGage VI seamlessly integrates with Curtis AC vehicle speed controllers and input devices without requiring additional code and is fully CAN compatible—CANopen, SAE J1939; and interacts with any CAN node on the vehicle network.
