(This is a continuation of Part 1…)
The gauge has now been installed since late July 2017 and it’s functioning well. I was concerned that the sun and heat (and the winter cold) would cause some issues but so far things are working great. The installation of the display in the gauge cluster was a bit rough due to the 4d systems screen module is none circular. I had to design the casing in two parts screen/bezel and rear PCB housing. Where the two meet up was a weak point and required a few tries. I’m looking to possible using a new LCD module in my next version as 4d System is discontinuing the ULCD-220RD :).
Here’s a video of the gauge functioning in the boat:
