zazz_manual_screenshot-240.jpg

ZAZZ Engineering's ATC's touch interface, for engine room ventilation control, was conceived from the start to have vibrant graphics, intuitive design and the look and feel of easy-to-use, touch-based consumer electronics.  The ATC (Automated Touch Control) automatically controls engine room ventilation monitoring inside and outside temperature, fan speed and engine room pressure. Powered by an integrated 24V DC supply, the ATC touch interface is equipped with an Ethernet Port for easy connection to the CPU. Available in two standard screen sizes, 8.4" and 10.4” other sizes are available. ZAZZ Engineering’s, George MacDonald says, “Todays engine room ventilation is becoming more and more sophisticated, our engineering department, works with the architect, designer, shipyard or builder to design the best possible ventilation solution for the engine room, at no charge.” For more information visit their website at www.zazzeng.com
