2012 the specialist MOTOMETER GmbH celebrates the 100 years jubilee. According to the Intermat motto “Together let’s build the future” MOTOMETER presents a lot of surprises in hall 5a F011 in Paris. One is the Sensitive Cockpit, a new improvement in productivity based on Multitouch Projected Capacitance Technology. Further innovations are the anniversary display system MOTOMASTER and the display unit MOTOCANDIS in an extraordinary size. MOTOMETER also presents the special exhibition wall which combines a lot of MOTOMETER products. Even the awarded ultrasonic level sensor MOTOSONIC and the top qualified full electronic battery breaker MOTOBREAKER 2.0 are placed on the wall. So the Intermat visitors can see locally how the MOTOMETER products work.
100 years MOTOMETER
Since 1912 MOTOMETER has a permanent place in the automotive sector because the products set milestones again and again. Everything began with the cooler thermometer and now the specialist has more than 2.000 efficient and innovative products in the portfolio. In the anniversary year the reliable partner of vehicle manufacturers, workshops and system engineers will exhibit for the second time at the Intermat in hall 5a F011.
“Our MOTOMETER products are worldwide in use. The instruments are in agriculture vehicles, construction machines, commercial vehicles such as trucks, special vehicles, roadsters and trikes. The self understanding of MOTOMETER is shaped by reliability, diligence, continuity and the own high requirement on quality work. The MOTOMETER team has always the aim to satisfy the customer’s requests optimally. This is our motivation and the engine for further innovations. Celebrate 100 years MOTOMETER and visit us at the Intermat hall 5a F011 because together we build the future”, said Joachim Bulla, CEO of MOTOMETER GmbH in Muehlacker, Baden-Wuerttemberg.
Besides smart products in the sector display equipment, sensors and body electronics, the company presents the freshest chief attractions e.g. cockpit switches, solid state iso cut-off relay, bistabile battery switches.
Latest Clou: Sensitive Cockpit simplifies machine control
MOTOMETER works with the Multitouch Projected Capacitance Technology and introduces with the Sensitive Cockpit new improvements in productivity. The touch-sensitive surface enables a free arrangement of operating elements and brings the machine control to perfection. This new panel type is space-saving and has a similar, modern view like the iphone generation. The touch pad can be connected with a CAN display like MOTOCANDIS. So it realises a clearly and intuitive menu navigation.
„Thereby, the highly complex machine cycles will be simple demonstrated. Elements which are necessary but not always in use will be reduced or clustered. This minimises sources of error, error rates and limitations of the operator. This simplified and clear machine control will unburden the engine driver, support the security aspect at the daily use and avoids cost-intensive operating errors“, specifies Joachim Bulla.
The sensitive cockpit technology is based on sensors in a glass operating area which build a condenser. A voltage signal creates an electrical area which will be changed by the touch of the finger. This change realises an exact positioning of the finger and builds the base for the projected capacitance technology. Orientation on the operating module will be given by printed symbols on the bottom side of the transparent surface and by engravings. A front panel made of glass offers the perfect protection against all physical influences like mechanical, chemical, biological impacts. Besides, OEMs can freely define their specific layout and the functions.
„The touch-sensitive operating module can easily be integrated in the main power supply with the CAN communication. Generally it offers the OEMs the possibilities to force the simplified machine control because the operating module get rid of the complexity. This enables the concentration of the driver on the actual work task and boosts the effectiveness, efficiency and also the security“, describes Bulla, the managing director.
