Anders Electronics has extended its family of industrial-specification TFT displays with five new VGA (640 x 480) and QVGA (320 x 240) 5.7in LCD modules that address demanding environmental requirements without the cost of ownership penalties typically associated with robust, high-end LCDs.
In addition to addressing the needs of new industrial applications, the 5.7in TFTs also provide for cost-effective migration of existing designs from conventional monochrome STN/CSTN technologies to full colour displays.

The new 5.7in industrial-specification full colour, transmissive TFT range from Anders Electronics comprises a VGA and a QVGA module with LED backlights, and a QVGA module that incorporates a CCFL backlight and is, therefore, suited to use where high brightness is essential. Touchscreen variants of both QVGA modules are available, bringing the total number of new industrial-specification products to five.

Ideal for factory automation, process control, test and measurement, and other industrial HMI designs, the new displays will also suit a variety of ticketing and vending applications. All of the modules are designed for an extended operating temperature range of -20°C to 70°C. The new QVGA and VGA LED backlit modules offer brightness levels of 500 and 450cd/m2 respectively, while the CCFL backlit module delivers up to 700cd/m2.

Contrast ratios are 250:1 for the LED-backlit QVGA and VGA LCDs, rising to 300:1 for the CCFL-backlit QVGA product. At around 20,000 hours, LED backlight lifetime is around twice that of similar products, while the CCFL backlight is rated for up to 50,000 hours. These extended backlight ratings further contribute to low lifetime operation costs.

The new 5.7in modules join Anders Electronics’ existing 3.5 and 5in industrial-specification LCDs. As with the other modules in the range, the new products deliver low purchase and lifetime ownership costs backed up with a commitment to long-term design continuity and production.
