The MD-224 Series of marine displays come with full range dimming, wide viewing angles, and optional optical bonding. These displays are built with a small-profile modular design that allows easier integration into industrial marine systems, thereby reducing deployment costs and overall time-to-market.

The innovative and user-friendly SavvyTouch display controls offer several unique features not found in most marine display consoles: a proximity sensor for convenient adjustments in dark conditions, an info button for immediate updates of power status, and a quick-switch to adjust between day, dusk, and night-time ECDIS modes (for color-calibrated ECDIS models only).

The MD-224 Series displays are compliant with IEC 60945, DNV, ABS, and IACS E10, making them suitable for maritime applications. Their IP54-rated (IP66-rated models available on request) enclosure provides additional protection against dust and moisture above and beyond the limits established by these international standards bodies.

ECDIS-approved models are also available, offering an excellent HMI solution for ECDIS charting and navigation stations.
