TFT displays range handles harsh environments
Thin film transistor (TFT) displays manufactured by Futurelabs are available from distributor Relec Electronics.
They range in size from 3.5-inch to 17-inch and are available with optional PCAP (projective capacitive) touchscreens.
The TFT displays are available with extended operating temperatures ranging from -40 to +85°C, making them suitable for use in the harshest of environments.
They also have IPS (in-plane switching) technology for wide viewing angles in a range of lighting conditions in indoor and outdoor applications.
The Futurelabs IPS TFT liquid crystal display (LCD) modules are available in 3.5-inch, 5.0-inch, 7.0-inch, 10-inch, 10.4-inch, 12.1-inch, 15.6-inch and 17-inch versions. There is also a 12.3-imch letterbox LVDS TFT LCD.
All Futurelabs displays are available with Rocktouch Rugged line PCAP touch panels, for best in class performance, noise and water resistance.
They are also available with a range of input options, for example, glove touch, operation with water, and firmware tuning.
Resolution ranges from 640 x 480 RGB pixels to 1280 x 800 RGB pixels, and brightness levels are from 400 cd/M2 to 1000 cd/M2, depending on the model.
The displays can be customised with touchscreens, mounting frames, cover lenses, optical bonding, surface treatments and enhancement films.
The robust TFT LCDs are ideal of use indoors or outdoors, for example factory automation, transportation or public information systems.
Futurelabs also offer a wide range of suitable replacement TFT for products from Mitsubishi either standard parts or with AIR or Spectrum Bonding – their in-house optical bonding technique.
