      Premiere at Continental – new instrumentation solutions for efficient and comfortable working

      • Compact, inexpensive and robust MultiViu Compact 4 primary instrumentation with attractive black panel design and optional optical bonding
      • New SingleViu single instrumentation is hard-wearing and variable
      • SingleViu instruments replace existing series step by step

      Munich, April 2016. Speed, fluid levels or error messages – the instrumentation solutions by Continental enable drivers to keep track of all the vehicle information they could need at any time while they’re on the road. Now the international automotive supplier is to present two new devices at bauma, expanding its portfolio in this field. The MultiViu Compact 4 is programmable, attractively priced primary instrumentation with a modern design and a 4.3-inch display. Designed in the tablet look, the instrumentation is equipped with two CAN inputs and a video input. The instruments are easy to read even in low light conditions, thanks to a particularly bright and air bubble-free bonded TFT module (optical bonding) that can be optionally added on request. The round instruments of the newly developed SingleViu family will in future replace three existing families of individual instruments.

      MultiViu Compact 4 – modern primary instrumentation

      In construction, trucking and agriculture, manufacturers are equipping the cabins of their vehicles and machines with more and more high-quality fittings and attaching increasing importance to maximizing comfort – and Continental is leading this trend with its new MultiViu Compact 4 primary instrumentation, an attractively priced and sustainable serial solution. Switched off, the MultiViu Compact 4 has a black, homogeneous surface (black-panel design) that fits perfectly into any interior design concept. At 4.3 inches, the display is smaller than many smartphones, making the MultiViu Compact 4 a compact, affordable and above all flexible instrumentation solution. Sales will launch early next year.

      The Continental developers focused on an especially bright display, which can be easily read even in unfavorable light conditions like strong sunlight – and the display is also rugged and water and vibration-proof. An optional built-in Bluetooth module enables the driver to easily retrieve vehicle information like oil or fuel levels by mobile phone. Conversely, the screen can also display messages from the smartphone, informing the driver about incoming calls, for instance. Two CAN ports, a video input and multiple digital and analog inputs and outputs round off the technical features. The display can also be easily adapted to individual customer requirements – customized glass covers including a logo, ten pilot lights, and four menu buttons at the screen’s bottom edge.

      New SingleViu single instrumentation

      The round instruments of the SingleViu family will also celebrate their premiere at bauma. They will be available in the traditional VDO design from 2017. The individual instruments for temperature, tank, pressure, voltage and current display are available with a 52 mm diameter. Speed and RPM displays are also available in the models with 80 and 100 mm diameters. This new platform will replace the individual instruments of the WWG, Viewline and CANcockpit families step by step. Construction machine manufacturers can choose from 74 versions, with OEM and retrofit models, or models to replace existing instruments. “SingleViu covers all the applications of the earlier series and can simply replace them. With SingleViu, we offer our customers a uniform and flexible solution at the cutting edge of technology,” explains Dr. Michael Ruf, Head of Continental’s Commercial Vehicles and Aftermarket Business Unit. The instruments have a CAN input and an analog input for connecting to commercially available sensors. They are especially hard-wearing with their outer mineral glass lens, high protection class and flame-retardant housing – and thanks to their double-glass system, they won’t mist up. The 80 and 100 mm diameter models have an internal switch and an LCD display that shows the driver information in scroll mode.

      For the aftermarket, the SingleViu instruments can be connected to existing wiring harnesses via an adapter. Continental offers SingleViu worldwide throughout the construction machine industry and for agricultural, commercial and two-wheeled vehicles.
