The new Yanmar display units YD42 and YD25 offer solutions for a range of yachts, catamarans, motorboats and RIBs. All in a small and sober package.
Yanmar has just launched their latest generation electronics with the introduction of two new multi-purpose engine switch and instrument displays. The Yanmar YD42 Multi-Function Color Display and YD25 LCD Switch Panel Display feature a low-profile glass helm design and a 4.1-inch full color screen.
So much information
The multi-purpose Yanmar YD42 reads and displays Yanmar engine alarm and diagnostic codes. Users can also view additional information from engine speed and load, oil pressure and coolant temperature, to wind, speed, depth and AIS data. It supports eight languages and is compatible with a wide range of NMEA 2000 devices. The YD42 also allows engine data to be easily transmitted to other multi-function displays.
The water-resistant panel is suitable for use in all weather conditions with waterproof silicone keys, while condensation or fogging is eliminated as the LCD panel is optically bonded to its protective glass covering. The 170-degree viewing angle matches a good daytime visibility due to transflective LCD technology, which makes use of reflected sunlight to brighten the display image, with a lower power consumption compared to traditional backlit displays. The screen also offers a night-time mode to aid visibility in the hours of darkness and has a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels.
Intuitive to operate and simple to install, the YD42 has an easy front-mount option, requiring no access to the back of the console or panel.
Yanmar has also introduced the Yanmar YD25 LCD Switch Panel Display. In addition to engine start/stop functionality, the new compact YD25 shows Yanmar engine data, alarms and diagnostic codes, and integrates with multifunction displays and glass helm systems. Intuitive data screen selection keys allow viewing of information including engine speed and load, oil pressure and coolant temperature on four customized screens.
Yanmar YD25 is contained in a weather-resistant housing, with waterproof silicone keys, and it fits to boats with limited dashboard space. The transflective monochrome 2.5-inch LCD has a viewing angle of 80 degrees and a resolution of 164 x 64px.
