Baton  Rouge, LA – Industrial, non-automotive transportation and military sectors, among others, often require LCD displays that can operate in extreme temperature environments. Typically, standard LCD modules provide a temperature range of 0°C to +50°C.  However, many real world applications have special demands when it comes to thermal capabilities, such as -30°C to 75°C.  

Extreme temperatures can cause a number for problems for LCD displays. An inexpensive computer monitor, the kind you buy at your local big box store or from a commodity supplier in Asia, may have an operating temperature range of 0° C to 32 or 40° C. That’s fine for most office uses but is inadequate for many harsh environment applications such as outdoors in direct sun. To meet the operating temperature requirements of our industrial customers, our 15”, 17” and 19” high-brightness displays start with an extended clearing range panels from one of several leading glass manufacturers.

The LED backlit displays from AbraxSys are an advanced engineered combination of the high stability required for industrial applications and the benefits of an LED backlight.  These include, among others, the prompt response and long-life characteristics of the LEDs particularly at low temperatures and excellent dimmability over the entire brightness range of the LEDs.  Another important advantage of the LED backlight is the low-volt operating voltage. This means that the high-voltage inverter required for CCFL lamps is no longer necessary.   Amongst other things, the high image quality of these newly designed display are due to the extremely uniform illumination of the display by the very bright LED backlights.

Special heat management ensures display is industrial-environment-compatibility

To achieve tolerance for the operating temperatures required in many industrial applications, AbraxSys uses very wide clearing temperature true industrial grade LCD TFT and as well has designed the housing of the new LCDs specifically for LED background lighting and equipped them with dedicated heat management: heat conductors transport the waste heat of the LEDs and their drivers to the rear outer side of the panel where it can be easily given off into the environment.  The new LED backlight versions of the proven industrial-grade LCDs therefore fulfill industry specifications with an extended operating temperature range of -30°C to 75°C and a service life of up to 100,000 hours.
