The PowerView is a powerful new display in a line of components manufactured by FWMurphy as part of its J1939 MurphyLink™ Family. The J1939 MurphyLinkTM Family of products has been developed to meet the needs for instrumentation and control on electronically controlled engines communicating using the SAE J1939 Controller Area Network (CAN).

The PowerView System is comprised of the PowerView and the MLinkTM PowerView Analog Gages. The PowerView is a multifunction tool that enables equipment operators to view many different engine or transmission parameters and service codes. The system provides a window into modern electronic engines and transmissions. The PowerView includes a graphical backlit LCD screen. Back lighting can be controlled via menu or external dimmer potentiometer. The display can show either a single parameter or a quadrant display showing four parameters simultaneously. Diagnostic capabilities include fault codes with text translation for the most common fault conditions.

The PowerView has four buttons using touch sensitive technology, which eliminates the concern for push button wear and failure. In addition, operators can navigate the display with ease. Enhanced alarm indication uses ultra-bright alarm and shutdown LEDs (amber and red). It has a wide operating temperature range of -40 to 185ºF (-40 to +85ºC), display viewing -40 to 167ºF (-40 to +75ºC), and environmental sealing to +/-5 PSI (±34 kPa). In addition the PowerView features Deutsch DT style connectors molded into casing and fits quickly and easily into existing 2-1/16 in. (52 mm.) diameter gage openings with little effort.

Other components in the system are microprocessor-based MLinkTM PowerView Analog Gages for displaying critical engine data broadcast by an electronic engine or transmission’s Engine Control Unit (ECU): engine RPM, oil pressure, coolant temperature, system voltage, etc. and a combination audible alarm and relay unit for warning and shutdown annunciation. Up to 32 components may be linked to the PowerView using a simple daisy chain wire connection scheme using RS485. The PowerView and all connected components can be powered by either 12 or 24-volt systems.
