MCD - mobile colour display  with touch screen technology

MCD (mobile colour display) offers an exceedingly tough user interface, which is particularly suited for monitoring and operating mobile machines.

The operational data of a machine and the output of the cameras can be visualized easily – in a company specific design, appropriate to special machines and situations.

The operation by touch, without fixed keys, increases the display's design options. The individual screen is available in a similar application case via USB-connectable flash memory.

In order to communicate with the controllers and sensors of the machine, MCD has a CAN interface, all CAN based protocols can be used.

The MCD colour display offers connections for three colour cameras and an acoustic signal transducer.
