AMETEK Dixson's modular Next Generation Instrumentation (NGI®) system now offers a Light Bar Message Center (LMC). The LMC receives messages from the vehicle data bus and signals from discrete switches and analog sensors throughout the vehicle. The LMC then processes the data to drive telltales and gauge pointers, display vehicle information or broadcast messages on the vehicle data bus. The amber backlit LCD contains two 20-character lines. Two switches with tactile feedback select and display trip information, fuel usage and service data plus a number of diagnostic screens. The LMC also displays fault codes and warning messages in real time.
