DC5 is Liebherr’s new display controller for mobile machinery

DC5 means fifth generation display controller. That’s the latest piece of technology under the Liebherr brand and it is based on a high-capacity i.MX6 processor and a Linux/Yocto software environment.

The DC5 provides the driver’s cab with visual comfort as well as high computing power. Rated up to IP6K5, the display controllers are suited to the demanding operational conditions of mobile machinery. From construction machinery and agricultural machinery to material-handling machines.

It is also customizable

The DC5 portfolio comprises 7, 9 and 12 inch variants, with high resolution screens up to 1,280 x 800 pixels. Various interfaces, such as Ethernet, CAN or Bluetooth allow for easy integration. A built-in speaker can provide the driver with audio data, such as beeps. Even under extreme temperatures from -30 °C up to 70°C the display controller is fully operational.

The display controller can provide rapid adaptation in accordance with the requirements of the application. The customer can configure various parameters, such as design, display size and quality, computing power or interfaces. Thanks to this individualisation, the Oem can meet the specific requirements of their machine and get the most of their user interface. If needed, more functionality can be integrated directly into the display-controller, such as satellite navigation or mobile communications.


Wide range of applications

Visibility aid, control computer and input device: in addition to displaying operational parameters and camera images, the DC5 display controller also qualifies as a visibility aid in accordance with DIN EN ISO 16001:2016. With its processing power, the DC5 can operate as a control computer. Moreover, the integrated PCAP touchscreen transforms the display into a programmable input device.

Liebherr will be presenting the new display controller DC5 from 8th to 14th of April 2019 at Bauma in Munich, Germany, hall A4.
