Review Display Systems (RDS) has added to its LCD module portfolio with the 15.6in, WXGA, a-Si (amorphous- silicon) TFT LCD module from NLT Technologies. Outdoor applications will be the target for the NL13676BC25-03F which has a longer backlight lifetime of 70,000 hours to reduce power consumption without affecting brightness.
The wide format module can be used in boating equipment, construction devices and industrial applications. It has a luminance of 1100cd/m² and a high contrast ratio of 900:1 resulting in excellent viewability, even in high ambient light environments. Resolution is 1366 x 768.
The long-life white LED backlight lowers maintenance costs, compared to typical high power backlights used in conventional outdoor displays, achieving high brightness by optimising heat dissipation.
Furthermore, it is mercury-free. Operating temperature ranges from -20 to +70 degrees C, to guarantee stable operation in extreme conditions.
The wide format allows more data to be shown on the display, and for multi-function displays in marine equipment, where a variety of information and data need to be viewed on a single display at the same time. The module measures 363.8 x 215.9 x 12.65mm.
