Using OBD-II diagnostics, external sensors and a suitable interface, PanelPilotACE intelligent displays can be configured to provide real-time diagnostic information about automotive engine parameters, electrical, fuel and brake systems, exhaust performance as well as auxiliary equipment on many motorised road and agricultural vehicles, such as cars, vans, trucks and tractors. Temperature data logging module versions are available for those applications that require historical data to be kept for analysis.

Analogue, digital, PWM and serial data acquisition interfaces, as well as RS232, RS485, CAN bus and Ethernet communications can be configured via the intuitive PanelPilotACE Design Studio software to build a wide variety of instrument clusters. Automotive information displays are implemented with minimum effort and time.

PanelPilotACE Range of Touchscreen Displays

An off the shelf hardware and design software package for rapid development of industrial display and panel applications...without writing a line of code. Lascar's PanelPilotACE Design Studio software allow you to develop and customise PanelPilot colour touchscreen displays with minimum of effort and design time. Our software comes with its own Preview Emulator so you can create and test your display projects before committing to buying hardware. Download the PanelPilotACE Design Studio software and start your new project. 

PanelPilotACE with Built-In Data Logging Capability

Four-channel temperature data logging modules are available for those applications that require historical data to be kept for analysis. The user interface comprises an advanced logging application which shows real-time readings for all four temperature channels, live trend graphs and access to a suite of real-time data analysis information.

Lascar Products in the Field

PanelPilotACE products are ideal for automotive applications with configurable app possibilities and a large, capacitive screen for clear visibility. Established in 2004, Specialist Instruments explains how the PanelPilotACE SGD 43-A has simplified the design of a custom control system based in a tractor cab, monitoring the distribution of fertiliser across fields. 

Let Lascar Create the App

Our PanelPilot software platforms give users the ability to dramatically reduce design time for display applications by eliminating the need for complex code. But if you’re really under pressure to finish a design, why not make use of Lascar’s Custom Design Service for PanelPilot to deliver your solution? Provide us with a description of your display requirements and we can complete the design for you. Contact your local sales office for more information.

PanelPilot M-Series

M-Series displays offer a convenient way to add additional aftermarket gauges to a car and have been used to display oil pressure, oil temperature, fluid temperature and battery voltage.
