Hydro Electronic Devices (HED) announced the release of the company’s newest generation of user interface displays. The new displays, available in 5, 7, 12, and 15 in. sizes, feature a 1000 nit IPS display with an optically bonded AR lens allowing for outstanding sunlight viewability. They are sealed to IP67, enabling both in-cab and externally mounted applications. In addition, the design features an edge-to-edge glass design that allows the displays to be flush-mounted seamlessly into the dash and other highly stylized applications in either a landscape or portrait configuration.
The displays feature a wide variety of interface options, including multiple video inputs, CAN, Ethernet, Bluetooth, and WiFi which enable the user to enable multiple applications and interfaces with different vehicle communications.
The new HED displays are designed with an open Linux-based operating system enabling users to select from a variety of programming tools, including Crank, Qt, and Codesys.
“OEMs can quickly and easily develop custom display screens to show and process all critical system parameters using video, gauges, icons, and more to simplify functionality so vehicle operators and drivers can keep their eyes on the most important tasks at hand,” said Paul Ludwig, president and CEO for HED.
HED will be releasing products at Conexpo and will begin shipping 5 and 7 in. parts in Q2 2023 and 12 and 15 in. parts in Q4 2023.
