Pepperl+Fuchs introduces transflective flat panel monitors for applications involving direct sunlight as well as the robust operation demanded of harsh outdoor environments and/or continuous duty operations.
Unlike a standard transmissive LCD where lights from the backlight pass through the LCD layer to combat ambient light, a transflective LCD reflects and transmit light, actually leveraging the ambient light to improve visibility across the widest range of ambient light conditions.
Pepperl+Fuchs industrial flat panel monitors are made of 100% industrial-grade components. These monitors are available as general purpose displays or as a UL listed Class I/Div 2 device. They come in a variety of mounting styles to suit varying application needs, and can be combined with a Pepperl+Fuchs Bebco EPS purge system for Class I/Div. 1 hazardous environment mounting. Touch screen options are available.
These flat panel monitors are rated for use in temperatures ranging from -10° C to 55° C. They accept standard VGA or NTSC inputs from a PC or video camera source. They can multi-sync to any standard video mode from 640×480 to 1600×1200 at scan rates from 60 to 75 Hz, without image distortion or flicker. The DM5xx are 12 VDC powered displays, powered from an external power supply to keep heat away from the monitor, maximizing reliability and operating life.
