Featuring external dimensions of just 40x20mm, the EA DIPS082 fits into 19" rack systems with one height unit (1U). For efficiency in assembly, the compact EA DIPS082 dot matrix panel including pins with a grid of 2.54mm is soldered directly into the circuit board or plugged into a socket. 

No additional fixing screws, spacer sleeves or connecting cables are required. This saves material and shortens production time per module by two to three minutes.

The high-contrast LCD Supertwist display can display two lines with 8 characters measuring 5.01mm each in height or, as EA 8081-A3N, one line with eight characters almost twice as high (7.15mm). His ROM already contains 192 ASCII characters. Eight freely defined characters can be added to this character set. All displays are supplied with standard controllers, ensuring that existing hardware and software can be used without modification.

The EA DIPS082 is compatible with HD44780 and is connected to a four or eight bit data bus. The supply voltage of the unit may optionally be ±2.7V, ±3.3V or five volts (at two milliamps). The operating temperature range is from -20 to +70°C.

The display is also available as EA DIPS082-HNLED with integrated LED backlight. It requires five volts as supply voltage, with a typical current consumption of 50mA (max. 80 mA). By modifying certain resistors, the lighting can also be switched and regulated.

The EA DIPS082 is part of a family of quickly mountable dot matrix displays. Currently, the EA DIP series also includes the following models: There are text displays in the format 68(75)x27mm with 1x8, 2x16 and 4x20 characters, as well as a graphic display with 122x32px.

The 75x46mm format offers a text display with 4x20 characters and a graphic display with 128x64px. The largest graphic display has a size of 113x70mm and a resolution of 240x128px.

A long availability of more than ten years, good support and the quality aims to guarantee a safe future. Touch panels are optionally available for the graphic displays.
