MTA has announced it is meeting the growing demand for flexible and modular electrical components for off-highway vehicles with the launch of its range of customizable dashboards.
The company is to present the new products at Bauma China later this month.
An MTA spokesperson said, “Over the years, MTA has frequently been asked to find new and innovative solutions, differing from those in the passenger car market.
“The result of this need is a wide range of fuse/relay modules with pertinent frames, brackets and covers, solutions which ensure the customers benefit from the utmost flexibility.
“When extreme environments need high performances products, MTA is able to offer modular fuse/relay holder solutions with high IP protection degree too, for use on vehicles operating in the presence of water and mud or in any applications requiring high protection for utilities.”
Plug-in and go
MTA will also present its solutions for off-highway OEMs needing off-the-shelf dashboards or displays with software that can be quickly and easily customized: MTA Studio, a proprietary tool for the computer that allows the customer to tailor the product to the needs of the vehicle it will be installed on.
The company’s products can meet the varied and ranging demands of off-highway OEMs with dashboard shapes offered including round, square, rectangular or oval, with dimensions ranging from small (107mm outer diameter) to the high-end 310 x 215mm display.
The types range from LCDs (segment or dot matrix) to TFTs (3.5in up to 4.3in) all coupled with analog needle indicators, up to full color 8in or 12in TFTs. MTA Studio allows full dashboard/display configuration both in graphics and operating logics.
Also available are three displays that can be configured with an Android environment in addition to MTA Studio if the customer wants to develop specific applications with the more powerful graphics that Android can offer.
