Project Description


This agriculture equipment maker needed a CAN/J1939 based HMI device that visually represented the piece of equipment it needed to control. The keypad had to be dust proof and aesthetically match the hi-tech control cab it was going into with LED lighting that annunciated the position of the booms.


  • LED lighting effects were a challenge to mimic the long booms
  • CAN J1939 messaging needed to work with their existing controls
  • The look and feel (Haptics) needed to reflect a high performance device

Services Performed

  • Industrial and Mechanical Design
  • PCB design
  • LED Lighting Design
  • CAN J1939 Messaging development and testing
  • IP67 design and testing


  • Industrial Design matches the machine layout
  • Custom LED lighting for daylight and night time viewing
  • Using standard DSS architecture developed custom CAN based keypad specific for customer
  • Ruggedized design to withstand high dust environment
