Densitron squares up for test and measurement
Densitron has introduced a square format 1:1 aspect ratio 4.0’’ Industrial Rugged TFT Module with features designed for operation in challenging environments.
Aimed at instrumentation; handheld test and measurement applications; and niche security products, the module’s in-plane switching (IPS) glass uses automotive grade fluid capable of operating from -30°c to +85°c, ideal for use in harsh environments with extreme temperatures.
Further to this ultra-wide operational temperature feature, Densitron engineers have combined an ultra bright, compact LED design that delivers 1000 candelas per square metre peak luminance in a 2.3mm overall mechanical depth. The module boasts 50,000-hour LED MTBF and is designed for longevity with anticipated production spanning 5-7 years.
Densitron UK business development manager Richard Applin said, ‘’Square format industrial TFT modules have been the preserve of niche avionic instrument clusters, but we see a wider remit within many styles of instrumentation. We wanted to solve real world engineering problems and offer a unique module which can operate in the harshest of environments.’’
The module’s 480×480 display resolution delivers a crisp user interface; large all-round viewing angles; high contrast; and a black default state. Solisbond, Densitron’s proprietary optical bonding process, can be applied between the TFT glass and PCT sensor to improve and enhance optical performance in direct sunlight.
