Industrial LCD manufacturer KOE have announced the introduction of a new 10.3-inch Rugged+ TFT display module. The TX26D206VM0BAA features HD (1920 x 720 pixels) resolution, an 8:3 wide aspect ratio, IPS (in-plane switching) technology which provides excellent image quality when viewed at any viewing angle, and an extended operating temperature range.
Designed for use in high reliability industrial, in-vehicle, medical, aerospace and marine applications the Rugged+ 10.3-inch display is suitable for use under extreme temperature, mechanical shock and vibration environments where consistent and guaranteed operation are required. The optical and environmental specifications of KOE’s Rugged+ display modules are derived from the same operating standards as used in automotive specification display modules.
For dedicated human-machine interface applications, IPS display technology delivers exceptional colour saturation and image stability, high contrast and deep black levels with 176° wide viewing angles (vertical and horizontal). The 10.3-inch display features a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a white LED backlight with a brightness of 1000cd/m² and a specified 70K hour half-brightness lifetime. These features ensure that display images are colourful, concise and bright.
Jason Tsai, marketing manager, KOE, said: “KOE’s Rugged+ displays have been specifically developed to have robust mechanical, electrical and environmental characteristics that are highly resistant to shock, vibration, electro-static discharge and temperature variation. The new high resolution 10.3-inch display implements in-plane switching display technology, which provides exceptional optical performance with highly consistent colour reproduction and wide viewing angles.”
The 50-pin 2-channel LVDS data interface supports 8-bit RGB which enables a colour palette of up to 16.7M colours. The 10.3-inch display module has mechanical outline dimensions of 259.0mm (w) x 111.4mm (h) x 14.2mm (d) and an active display area of 243.7mm (w) x 91.4mm (h). An operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C and storage temperature range of -40°C to +90°C is supported. The display module weighs 430gram.
KOE’s Rugged+ TFT display modules are suitable for many varied applications including aerospace, industrial automation, in-vehicle, marine, medical, point-of-sale, process control and signage. The new 10.3-inch Rugged+ TX26D206VM0BAA TFT display module is available immediately from KOE’s sales channel distribution partners.
