Caterpillar MPD To Nmea2000 Via Veratron VMH 70

We have created in a house plug and play solution. Where you can plug in a fully color display to replace the old Caterpillar MPD display shown below. * You can purchase the display here Veratron VMH70 includes additional images, including customer images.


The Displays are typically sun burnt as shown big dark spot in the middle, or the ribbon is burnt off internally causing vertical lines or horizontal lines on the display. These displays can be repaired or they can be replaced with the Veratron VMH 70. Please be advised that you maybe missing some parameters. Although we do our best to show most parameters available, this is a aftermarket solution not supported by Caterpillar themselves.

A fully color display with J1939 DM1 alarms, Nmea2000 output of engine data, 2, Tachometer inputs 6 analog inputs to connect multiple tanks or other sensors Oil Pressure, Coolant Temp etc, 2 4-20ma inputs, 3 0-5V inputs, and 2 J1939 inputs. We typically suggest replacing both displays per motor, instead of running 1 display for both motors. The displays are fully SUNLIGHT readable and are IPX7 rated. The footprint of the display are pretty close in size to the Caterpillar MPDs

Well what about the 12 pin plug? We have a inhouse plug made that plugs into the pre-existing harness. Includes a buzzer and shrink wrapped wiring covering the unused wires.
