Tulsa, Oklahoma -- FW Murphy has released an updated user interface for its ignition controllers. The Murphy Power Ignition Display features more programming options than previous Murphy power ignition products, detailed engine profiles and a higher resolution screen display.
The MPI Display features eight lines of text with a higher screen resolution of 124x64, which allows graphics to be added to the interface. Users can change any editable parameter, including overspeed, cylinder firing angles, number of cylinders and cam reference method.
The new display includes a USB port to allow laptop programming. The display includes a copy of "MPI Prog," software, developed by Murphy to allow edits through a graphic interface. The new display is included now on the MPI-8, MPI-16 and MPI-32 ignition controllers and is available as a remote display.
A major innovation in the MPI Prog software is that it can save multiple engine profiles on the hard drive and save up to four custom engine profiles on the display itself. Users can build an engine profile at one location, then upload it to ignition controllers at other locations.
"We're not only giving the product a facelift, but we're also giving our customers new tools to fully customize their ignition installations," says Darrell Schmitt, territory sales manager at Murphy. "This is an incredibly easy way to standardize the fleet."
