KPI-JCI now offers color monitors as standard in its track-mounted equipment line. The color monitors, which have been engineered to enhance performance, navigation and diagnostics for operators and technicians, feature significant advancements, including improved display resolution and a more user-friendly design, said Ron Griess, crushing and tracks product manager at KPI-JCI.
The monitors have been installed on track jaws and impactors to include the GT125, FT5260, FT4250, FT2650, FT4240 and FT3055 units.
“The color displays have a higher resolution, which allows for bigger and clearer text and images on the screens that help with navigation, diagnostics and performance monitoring,” Griess said. “The brightness of the displays allows for easy viewing in the sunlight, a significant improvement from the former black-and-white displays.”
The new displays offer easy-to-understand symbol navigation, which help operators and technicians navigate the system without the use of a manual. The icon-driven design eliminates the need to scroll through technical menus, thereby reducing downtime and improving plant performance.
“The new color monitors will provide more diagnostics of the electrical system and the hydraulic system than we have had in the past,” Griess said. “The monitors also allow for better engine diagnostics with more information including fuel PSI, intake manifold temperature, boost PSI and an onscreen manual fuel prime feature.”
