"We are pleased to introduce the PowerView™ P70, which represents a major step forward in rugged display-controller technology," said Josef Matosevic, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer. "With its combination of advanced features, premium display quality, and rugged durability, the PowerView™ P70 is the perfect solution for both powersports and industrial customers who demand the best. This is another great example of Helios leveraging a new platform across more than one end market to achieve a multiplier effect. We are also thrilled to announce an initial multi-million-dollar customer award for this product reinforcing the demand we have been hearing from customers.”
The PowerView™ P70 is the result of combining the best features from the highly sought after PV485 and PV700 products while retaining the ruggedness expected from an Enovation Controls’ display-controller. With a 7-inch edge-to-edge, all glass, full-color touchscreen format like the PV700, the all-new P70 sets the industry standard for sunlight-readability from its optically bonded 1000 Nit glove-friendly display. It also boasts the full I/O (input/output) complement of the PV485, making it a powerful and versatile device. The PowerView™ P70 is another innovation from our world class engineering design and validation capabilities that have been gained from decades of experience.
Ideal Control Displays for Powersports and Heavy Industrial Equipment Applications
The P70 will initially be available in two forms, a powersports model and an industrial model. It is packed with features such as an internal GPS receiver and 2.5 zone audio out, making it the best choice for powersports OEMs who demand top performance and functionality. 2.4GHz Wi-Fi will also be available in a future software release. For the industrial market, it offers the same core technology, rugged reliability and high-performance as the PV700 in a higher value format. Designed with all-weather durability, it features a rugged, IP67-rated housing that protects against water, dust, and shock, making it suitable for use in the harshest environments.
Core hardware features on the powersports model include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, CAN, and GPS which are integrated directly into the P70 giving OEMs complete control. It will also allow for digital and analog inputs, low-side outputs, and a touchscreen designed for wet and dry use. The industrial model will have a subset of those features based on customer requirements.
Commercial availability for both the powersports and industrial models are targeted for early fourth quarter of 2023. Customers and prospects can view the new PowerView™ P70 at The Utility Expo September 26 - 28, 2023 in booth #3241.
