AbraxSys Now Offering a Rugged Sunlight Readable
12.1” LCD Monitor line with In-Plane Switching Technology and Projected Capacitive
AbraxSys announced today the release of a new 12.1” harsh-duty, sunlight readable LCD series
which incorporates an IPS industrial panel and Projected Capacitive Touch Screen.
AbraxSys' 12.1” high bright, sunlight readable, touch screen LCD
monitors are ideal for use in any high ambient light condition, delivering the intensity, brilliance
and long product life cycle your application requires. AbraxSys enhanced high bright TFT active matrix
displays have brightness level of 1100 nits (cd/m2); these direct sun daytime readable LCDs
significantly outperform commercially available non-enhanced products that washout in sunlight
IPS (In-plane switching) is a screen technology for liquid crystal displays (LCDs). It was
designed to solve the main limitations of the twisted nematic field effect (TN). These limitations included strong
viewing angle dependence and low-quality color reproduction.
Advantages of ISP (In-plane Switching):
IPS panels display consistent, accurate color from all viewing angles. This is a big advantage
over that of TN panels (twisted nematic).
Unlike TN LCDs, IPS panels do not lighten or show tailing when touched. This is important for
IPS panels offer clearer images and more stable response time.
PCAP (projected capacitive touch) technology is an ideal choice for a wide range of
industrial-grade applications, such as process control terminals, medical displays and agricultural vehicle
telemetry systems, as the touch performance in unaffected by scratches, dirt and dust on the screen. They can also
be operated by a user wearing heavy gloves, and can be sealed to extremely high IP rated systems making them
suitable for challenging or outdoor deployments.
Projected Capacitive touch technology enables touches to be sensed directly or through a
protective outer layer:
1. The touchscreen consists of a 3mm glass layer
2. The touchscreen senses touch through an outer layer including vandal-resistant glass up to 10mm
The complete system depending on the customer-selected outer layer can resist impact, scratches,
vandalism, heat, rain, snow, and ice or harsh cleaning fluids, making it well-suited for outdoor applications.
Benefits of Projected Touch:
True flat front surface without bezel possible
Works with gloves for true input flexibility
Works even if glass is scratched or broken
This newly released series offers such features as extended operational temperature ranges, true
industrial grade TFT panels, a multitude selection of inputs including VGA, DVI, DisplayPort, S-Video and
Composite. This series is designed to operate in harsh areas and even in direct bright sunlight, or in other
high ambient light conditions.
The front bezel is constructed of high-grade stainless steel and is very well gasket sealed to
protect against driving rain or hose-directed water pressure. The rugged rear enclosure is fabricated of 6061
Grade Aluminum which has been Zinc- Chromate Dipped and then treated with Corrosion Resistant Thermoset UV-stable
Black Powder-Coating. AbraxSys has added a versatile Analog-Digital interface board, backlight inverter and
OSD controls. All elements have been packaged into a compact, rugged housing. These rugged models
offers exceptional shock and vibration safeguards. This product is very ruggedly built, features long-life
displays with no scheduled End Of Life. Incorporating the latest LCD and control electronics you are assured a
display the will perform reliably in harsh industrial environments. Various add-on features can also be
incorporated into each model including.
AbraxSys is a worldwide leader of Industrial, Rail type, Military grade, and Marine type LCD
