With external dimensions of 102x27x11mm (window 88x19mm), the EA DIP180B-5LWTP LCD graphics module is suited for use in 19" racks, where it can be accommodated in a single U. Manufactured by Electronic Assembly, the very bright LCD Supertwist display is configured with LED backlighting and offers a high contrast in blue-white.

The use of Supertwist technology allows a fast response time even when temperatures are very low. In fact at extremely low operating temperatures of -20°C, the display has a sufficient response time of approximately 2.5s.The module operates over a temperature range from -20 to +70°C.

Three type PT6520 controllers (compatible with SED1520) are used to control the left, centre and right sections of the display. All characters are designed as graphics and various character sets are available on an USB stick.

The display comes with automatic temperature compensation.This removes the usual need to adjust the contrast during operation. With 180x32px it delivers brilliant images and optimum readability even under difficult lighting conditions.

The module can be soldered directly to the printed circuit board, avoiding complex assembly with additional mechanical components. A robust analog 4-wire panel is optionally available as a touch panel.

The high-quality LCD graphics module features connection via an 8-bit data bus, a long LED lighting service life of 100,000 hours and long term availability. It operates from a power supply of +3.3 to +5V and consumes a maximum of 800μA at 3.3V. The LED lighting requires a maximum of 45mA.
