BODAS – The hardware kit Display DI4 for universal use
Rexroth offers the BODAS DI4, a robust and high-resolution color display, for use in mobile working machines. The DI4 is freely programmable and can be used very flexibly and universally in every cab - from fork lift trucks to large excavators.
The display has a 7-inch screen (800 x 480 pixels) and enables direct connection up to two video cameras, for example to control the working space and a rear view camera. The installation is either free-standing or integrated in the dashboard and enables an alignment of the devices in 90° steps. The illumination of the integrated operating elements can be selected individually (color, intensity, day/night settings).
In addition to the two CAN bus interfaces, the DI4 has various analog inputs and outputs, as well as an USB interface for fast data exchange depending on the version. In conjunction with the integrated BODAS-service communication interface, the DI4 serves as a central access point to the CAN bus network of the machine and allows full diagnostic and flash updates for the connected BODAS RC controllers.
The 7-inch display additionally offers an optional touchscreen, an Ethernet and a Bluetooth interface. The DI4 fulfills the requirements for the protection classes IP6KX and IPX5. Thanks to the overlay technique, various display functions and video images can be shown on a single display. You will not only benefit from a new, customisable overview, also save space and reduce costs.
The programming and design of the screens, as well as the implementation of the display and operating logic, is accomplished by means of CoDeSys V3.5 development tools.
