Continental introduced a new line of round instrumentation for use in on-highway and off-highway applications including mining.

The VDO SingleViu instrument series features a dual input that allows operation with analog signals and digitally with CAN bus. The instruments provide all of the functions of the VDO Vision, ViewLine and CANcockpit instrument lines, and they’re suited for heavy-duty trucks and off-highway equipment, the company says.

The VDO SingleViu line is available in 74 variants for original equipment, retrofit or service replacement. According to Continental, VDO SingleViu is easy to use and provides a user interface via the LCD display on the speedometers and tachometers. The SingleViu line includes 2 1/16-in.-diameter gauges for temperature, fuel, pressure, tachometer, DEF, voltage, amperage and hour meter. Speedometers and tachometers are also offered in 3 3/8-in. and 4-in. diameters.

VDO SingleViu instruments accept input from a digital CAN bus connection and commercially available analog sensors. They feature an adaptable sensor curve or an adaptable pulse count and can be configured with the SingleViu ConfigTool or the LCD screen (speedometers and tachometers). The gauge’s electrical connection uses a watertight Molex MX150 connectors.

In addition, VDO SingleViu gauges are designed to perform in a range of weather and environmental conditions. Key design features include double-glazed and shock-resistant mineral glass to prevent fogging and damage under the harshest conditions.
