Caterpillar Marine has launched its Cat CMD5 (5in display), CMD8 (8in display), and CMD13 (13.3in display) second-generation Cat Marine Displays (CMD), which are said to seamlessly integrate with bridge systems, providing a faster response time.

The new displays are type-approved and environmentally sealed to be waterproof for a wide range of temperature operations. Additional features include multiple graphic skin options enabling displays to fit better into different environments, configurable splash and monitoring screens allowing for better customisation of the displays, embedded manuals to help with equipment troubleshooting, Modbus support to monitor multi-engine applications in a single display, and IT camera support allowing visual monitoring of the engine room from the helm.

Adnan Kadribasic, Caterpillar Marine Product Development Manager, Control Systems, said: “Marine vessel operation should be simple, and the controls operators use should enable a seamless interaction and hassle-free experience. We’re excited to offer customers our second generation of displays which are built to last and offer consistent performance even in the harshest marine environments."

The CMD range is designed to monitor all engine platforms, supporting different vessel applications in professional maritime use, where reliability and long lifetime are fundamentals for user satisfaction. The three CMD variants provide operators easy access to current operating data and alarms for engines. The configurable screens offer full user customisation, visual simplicity, and a wide selection of languages.

The new CMD displays provide simple navigation through information and important data about onboard equipment. Operators can simultaneously monitor multiple engines and essential propulsion system data. Visual and audible alerts notify operators of any engine or transmission problems allowing for more time to mitigate any potential concerns.
