Veethree adds new color display to CANvu product
line along with new liquid level senders
Veethree Electronics and Marine LLC, Sarasota, Fla., has launched the VeeCAN
320 color display and LLS fuel sender
to its line of instruments and controls.
The VeeCAN 320 expands
Veethree’s CANvu lineup, adding a
new LCD sunlight-readable display
with additional input and output features. The graphical high resolution
320 x 240 color display also has backlighting, the company said.
The VeeCAN 320 monitors SAE
J1939 engine parameters and faults
as well as an additional seven analog
and three digital signals. The control
has two CAN line connections for
multiple CAN systems and four outputs that can be configured to turn
on and off features such as engine
shutdown, alarm annunciations or
warning indicators. It also includes a
full-sized USB port for attachment of
accessories or for capturing data.
The controller uses a 454 MHz
Freescale iMX processor and can
be used with Veethree’s software
developer’s kit to customize the
device for a specific application
using Veethree’s component-based
library. Veethree said it also provides
custom-designed software systems
for individual user needs.
The VeeCAN 320 has 3. 5 in.
square dimensions and is designed
for harsh operating environments. It
is IP67 approved and was engineered
to provide critical engine and system
data as well as control other components within a system such as engine
start, relays and warnings — making
the controller a multifunction device.
Also new from Veethree is its Liquid
Level Sender (LLS) fuel sender, used
to monitor fluid levels in heavy-duty
trucks, ag and construction equipment.
The VeeCAN 320 from Veethree monitors
SAE J1939 engine parameters and faults
as well as an additional seven analog and
three digital signals.
The sensor is available in 12 models
covering tank depths from 7 to 24 in.
The LLS has no moving parts and
its all-plastic construction removes
the possibility of corrosion, Veethree
said. It also incorporates a tube that
minimizes the fuel gauge pointer
movement caused by fuel slosh.
The fuel sender has an operating
temperature range of - 40° to 149°F.
Operating voltage is 6 to 28 V. A
wire wound or thick film resistor sensor element is used to measure fluid
level, depending on model. A solid
float option is also available for eliminating potential leaks, said Veethree.
OEMs can also have the unit calculate the volume of the fuel in the
tank versus just the level or a low fuel
light switch point added. Mounting
options include a standard five-hole
SAE mounting pattern or a 1. 5 in.
NPT pipe thread arrangement. dp
