Offering a Sunlight Readable 12.1 inch Rugged Monitor line with Projected Capacitive Touch and IPS (In-Plane Switching) Technology

New 12.1 inch Sunlight Readable LCD MonitorAbraxSys announced today the release of a new harsh-duty 12.1” sunlight readable monitor series with IPS industrial panel and Projected Capacitive Touch Screen.

This new sunlight readable series of 12.1” high bright, touch screen LCD monitors perform ideally in high ambient light conditions, delivering the intensity, brilliance and long product life cycle required by outdoor applications.  AbraxSys enhanced high bright TFT active matrix displays deliver a maximum brightness level of 1100 nits (cd/m2). AbraxSys’ direct sun, daytime readable LCDs significantly outperform cheaper non-enhanced commercially available products that washout in direct sunlight conditions.

This new series of outdoor displays feature two significant performance technologies: IPS and PCAP

IPS (In-plane switching) is a screen technology for liquid crystal displays (LCDs).  It was designed to solve the main limitations of the twisted nematic field effect (TN). These limitations included strong viewing angle dependence and low-quality color reproduction.

PCAP (projected capacitive touch) technology is an ideal choice for a wide range of industrial-grade applications, such as process control terminals, medical displays and agricultural vehicle telemetry systems, as the touch performance in unaffected by scratches, dirt and dust on the screen. They can also be operated by a user wearing heavy gloves, and can be sealed to extremely high IP rated systems making them suitable for challenging or outdoor deployments.

The mechanical configurations and corresponding AbraxSys high bright LCD models are:

Panel Mount NEMA 4: Model SRD-PM-121

Panel Mount NEMA 4X: Model SRD-PS-121

VESA Mount: Model SRD-VM-121

AbraxSys Upgrades its Sunlight Readable 15”, 17”, and 19” Products with Extremely Wide Operational Temperature Range Capabilities and Brighter, Clearer Images.

Sunlight Readable Wide Temperature LCDsThe AbraxSys 15”, 17” and 19” sunlight readable SRD displays have been newly modified with ultra wide extended clearing temperature range panels, high nit levels and wide contrast ratios. These new advancements will better meet the operating temperature, image quality and luminance requirements of AbraxSys industrial customers.

Special heat management ensures displays have industrial-environment-compatibility to achieve tolerance for the operating temperatures required in many industrial applications, AbraxSys uses very wide clearing temperature true industrial grade LCD TFT panels and as well has designed the housing of the new LCDs specifically for LED background lighting and equipped them with dedicated heat management: heat conductors transport the waste heat of the LEDs and their drivers to the rear outer side of the panel where it can be easily given off into the environment.  The new LED backlight versions of the proven industrial-grade LCDs therefore fulfill industry specifications with an extended operating temperature range of -30°C to 75°C and a service life of up to 100,000 hours.

Extreme temperatures can cause a number for problems for LCD displays. An inexpensive computer monitor, the kind you buy at your local big box store or from a commodity supplier in Asia, may have an operating temperature range of 0° C to 32 or 40° C. That’s fine for most office uses but is inadequate for many harsh environment applications such as outdoors in direct sun. Many real world applications have special demands when it comes to thermal capabilities, such as -30°C to 75°C. Industrial, non-automotive transportation and military sectors, among others, often require LCD displays that can operate in such extreme temperature environments.

The LED backlit displays from AbraxSys are an advanced engineered combination of the high stability required for industrial applications and the benefits of an LED backlight.  These include, among others, the prompt response and long-life characteristics of the LEDs particularly at low temperatures and excellent dimming capability over the entire brightness range of the LEDs.  Another important advantage of the LED backlight is the low-volt operating voltage. This means that the high-voltage inverter required for CCFL lamps is no longer necessary.   Amongst other things, the high image quality of these newly designed display are due to the extremely uniform illumination of the display by the very bright LED backlights.

The specific upgrades by model size are as follows:

15” Models Impacted:   SRD-VM-150, SRD-FVM-150, SRD-PM-150, SRD-PS-150, SRD-RM-150
