Caterpillar Marine Displays Caterpillar Marine has developed a second generation of its Cat Marine Displays (CMD) product line.

Caterpillar Marine announced a second generation of its Cat Marine Displays (CMD) product line. The CMD5 (5 in.), CMD8 (8 in.) and CMD13 (13.3 in.) displays are designed to seamlessly integrate with a range of bridge environments, providing a faster response time when navigating software.

“Marine vessel operation should be simple, and the controls operators use should enable a seamless interaction and hassle-free experience,” said Adnan Kadribasic, Caterpillar Marine Product Development manager, Control Systems. “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.”

Caterpillar Marine Displays are designed to monitor all engine platforms in the marine industry supporting different vessel applications and professional maritime use. 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. The configurable screens offer full user customization, visual simplicity and a wide selection of languages, Cat said.

The new displays are type-approved and environmentally sealed to be waterproof for a wide range of temperature operations, the company said. Additional features include multiple graphic skin options enabling displays to fit better into different environments, configurable splash and monitoring screens allowing for better customization 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.
