SilverLeaf VMS Digital Dash
The "Glass Dash"
A Modern digital gauge panel
The ultimate gauge cluster has arrived. SilverLeaf’s VMS755 CL and VMS765 CL provide a full digital dash that expand the benefits of SilverLeaf’s VMS technology to the greatest degree possible. Every analog gauge and indicator light is replaced by crisp, accurate, and stylish digital images in this complete cluster replacement.
The VMS Glass Dash uses a state-of-the-art display for outstanding daylight readability using special optics to eliminate glare. This prevents the “white-out” that makes almost any ordinary plastic surface unreadable under bright light. The color palette and back-light brightness automatically change with the headlights. During the day a hot, bright palette gives vivid contrast, while at night cool colors pamper the eyes.
In addition to the conventional icons that populate an ordinary dash, these units provide a Message Center with plain-language warnings. Low-fuel warnings come in gradations, changing from yellow to red as the tank empties. Temperature messages and icons also share this feature. All of the features of the smaller VMS displays, such as trip information, diagnostics, and support for the many SilverLeaf accessories, are included in the VMS Glass Dash.
A long-standing VMS feature is the remarkable video capability. These units provide a video window to help you keep an eye on your tow car and monitor surrounding lanes. While in reverse the window expands to the full screen for a detailed view of the area behind the coach. Our Glass Dash also provides choices in screen layout and style of gauges. Different layouts may emphasize certain gauges, and a driver may change his selection according to the type of driving he anticipates.
Our biggest advantage over predecessors is our experience with automotive electronics. Competing products have been based on PC technology and have been hobbled by poor displays, unreliable hardware, and software challenges. Our VMS Digital dashes use the same solid-state electronics as our well-proven VMS440CL and are designed for the automotive 12V DC environment. Most importantly, they don’t use Windows! SilverLeaf is responsible for every line of code. Your digital dash will come on instantly and will be immune to the bugs that bedevil PC systems.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating – or in this case, the driving. Feedback has been tremendously positive. Our customers appreciate having precise, reliable, and readable gauges, along with all of the driver tools and other benefits. And no one seems to mind showing it off to everyone else in the RV park.
The VMS Glass Dash is available in two screen sizes (not including mounting):
VMS755 – 9″W x 7″H (11.4″ Diagonal)
VMS765 – 11″W x 7″H (13″ Diagonal)
