The CAN network links the ambulance-specific devices. This reduces the wiring harness for the medical equipment. This includes the keypads, which are background illuminated. The keys feature pictograms. The activated functions are also visible in the driver’s display. There is an additional CAN-connected display and keypad in the patient room. The paramedic staff can control the air-conditioning, heating and ventilation functions by means of this device. A further keypad is installed on the floating patient table.
