Industrial LCD manufacturer KOE Europe has introduced a new 6.5-inch Rugged+ TFT display. The TX17D200VM0BAA features IPS (in-plane-switching) technology which provides exceptional optical performance, a 16:9 wide aspect ratio and WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) resolution. Rugged+ displays are designed to provide a high performance display solution for high reliability and harsh environment applications.
Wide viewing angle performance and consistent colour saturation are features of the display with the latest implementation of IPS technology. Viewing angles of 85 degrees are supported in all directions (up, down, left, right) and the white LED backlight has a 70K hour half-brightness lifetime and provides a 700cd/m² brightness specification. A contrast ratio of 600:1 ensures that display images are bright, clear and uniform.
Commenting Mark Stephenson, KOE Europe, Technical Marketing Manager said, “The new 6.5-inch Rugged+ display should prove to be a popular addition to the KOE display portfolio. The size, resolution and aspect ratio of the display combined with the excellent optical characteristics leads to a highly versatile display module that will find use in many different applications and environments.”
The ruggedized 6.5″ TFT is designed to function reliably under rigorous operating conditions found in some industrial, marine, aerospace and medical applications but is still able to provide exceptional optical performance. Support for harsh environments is aided with an operating temperature range of -30°C to +80°C and a storage temperature range of -40°C to +90°C.
The TX17D200VM0BAA features a 20-pin LVDS data interface supporting 6-bit RGB which enables a colour palette of up to 262,000 colours. The 6.5-inch display module has mechanical outline dimensions of 154.8mm (w) x 92.7mm (h) x 10.2mm (d).
Typical applications for the new 6.5-inch Rugged+ display include marine instrumentation, industrial process control, in-vehicle displays and medical equipment. The TX17D200VM0BAA is available immediately from KOE Europe”s distribution sales channel partners.
