Furuno Electric Co., a marine electronics manufacturer based in Camas, Washington, has introduced “Hi-Brite” Multi Touch Marine Monitors for its NavNet TZtouch and NavNet TZtouch2 Black Box navigation systems.
The line of monitors includes the 17-inch MU175T, 19-inch MU195T, and 24-inch, wide aspect ratio MU245T. All three models offer an edge-to-edge glass design and glass display controls with no physical buttons or switches. The monitors use Projected Capacitive Touch (PCT, or PCAP) technology and employ bright TFT active-matrix LCD and LED backlight technology, according to a company statement.
The MU-T series has brilliance levels of 1,000 candela and is dimmable, so night vision will not be affected by the gray glow commonly experienced with off-the-shelf monitors, according to Furuno. The LCD and glass are bonded together to ensure fog-free operation, and the displays have an IP66 (front) and IP22 (rear) waterproof rating, making them marine-grade monitors.
Multiple inputs allow the display of information from virtually any video source. And they have adjustable Picture-In-Picture and Picture-By-Picture modes. With dual power source capability, all of these monitors can automatically switch power sources without interruption, according to Furuno.
