BEP Marine recently announced its latest addition to its line of CZone Digital Control and Monitoring solutions, the 8- and 10-inch Touch Screen Displays. Compatible with the full range of CZone networked components, the new CZone displays provide houseboaters with at-a-glace status and fingertip control of onboard systems. CZone Touch Screen displays increase convenience and safety, and make it easier for houseboaters to enjoy their time on the water.

Designed with boat manufacturers and end-users in mind, CZone Touch Screen Displays act as the interface between the CZone network and the user. Offering full control of circuits and the ability to view important onboard systems information such as tank levels and power levels (for both AC and DC supplies), the displays provide intuitive, simple controls and an easy-to-understand menu structure. User-configurable modes, such as "night running" that dims pre-selected lights, allow the control of multiple circuits with a single tap of an on-screen button. Proprietary system diagnostics alert users to service requirements as well as potential system hazard through audible and visual alarms.

"In the last two years we have experienced a dramatic increase in customer demand for bigger screens with touch functionality for both big and small boats," says Jarrod Sagar, product development and marketing manager, BEP Marine Ltd. "Our new touch screen CZone displays are designed to meet that demand, delivering the latest in monitoring and control technology with unparalleled access and ease of use."

Using CZone Touch Screen Displays, boaters have access to and control over a wealth of onboard electrical systems. Lights throughout the boat can be turned on and off with full dimming and timer control. An integrated DC power meter displays the voltage, charge and discharge amperage and battery capacity of multiple battery banks. An AC power meter displays multiple line voltages (230 and 120V) and AC line frequencies. The CZone system also monitors tank levels displaying multiple tanks and fluid types, as well as NMEA 2000 data, and temperature and pressure values. Comprehensive alarms and diagnostics monitor, log, and when required, alert boaters to high and low voltages, capacities and frequencies, pump activity and repeat alerts from other safety technology such as smoke detectors.

BEP Marine's new CZone 8- and 10-inch Touch Screen Displays are available for purchase from authorized BEP dealers and distributors around the world.
