Gleichmann Announces 15-inch TFT LCD Modules for Industrial Equipment

Gleichmann Electronics has expanded its product offering with the addition of two new innovative 15-inch (38 cm diagonal) thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) modules. The NEC LCD Technologies’ modules, part number NL10276BC30-32 and NL10276BC30-33, are suited for use in industrial equipment such as factory automation controllers, measuring instruments, automatic teller machine (ATM) terminals, kiosks and point-of-sale (POS) systems.

The two new 15-inch TFT LCD modules feature wide viewing angles of 160 degrees horizontally (H) and 140 degrees vertically (V), high contrast ratio of 600:1and a fast response time of 18 milliseconds (ms). These features ensure particularly good readability, even in harsh working environments, and enable information to be reproduced on screen quickly and precisely.

Furthermore, the operating temperature has been extended from 0 to +50 degrees Celsius to –10 to +70 degrees Celsius, thereby enabling use in environments susceptible to high temperatures and various temperature changes.

The NL10276BC30-32 is a standard product with brightness of 250 candelas per square meter (cd/m2), while the NL10276BC30-33 has brightness of 350 cd/m2. Both modules conform to the Panel Standardization Working Group (PSWG) standards for 15-inch LCD modules.

Availability of samples of the two new 15-inch LCD modules, part number NL10276BC30-32 and NL10276BC30-33,(which are footprint and interface-compatible with other 15-inch LCD modules from NEC LCD Technologies, namely the NL10276BC30-17, NL10276BC30-18 and NL10276BC30-18C) is scheduled for October – December 2007.
