CZone expands touchscreens with smaller Touch 5
Smaller size control touchscreen offered with built-in wi-fi connectivity.
CZone, a brand of marine electrical systems and components manufacturer BEP, has added a new touchscreen to its line-up, the Touch 5.
A smaller version of the CZone Touch 10 launched last year, the Touch 5 features a five-inch diagonal display with resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and 1200 nits brightness, almost twice that of most smartphone screens, enabling it to be easily viewed in full sunlight. The screen is designed for low-profile flush mounting in a sleek glass dash display.
The Touch 5 also includes built-in wi-fi connectivity for direct connection of tablet devices. The CZone iPad app then allows users to move anywhere on board or within wi-fi range and control all their connected devices.
The screen has an IPx7 waterproof rating making it suitable for installation in locations such as flybridges or open helms which are fully exposed to the elements.
Like all CZone products, the Touch 5 has built-in NMEA2000 compatibility and integrates with the full CZone range of digital switching products on a common NMEA2000 network backbone. It also complements the new, second generation CZone Combination Output Interface (COI) module, offering a cost-effective system for new build and retrofit applications with all the elements required for a complete digital switching solution contained in two modules.
The Touch 5 is available now priced at NZ$1,299 (ex GST).
