The 16:9 format is not yet established in industrial use. Most applications for process visualization or presentation of images are still designed with 4:3 format. Nonetheless, the interest for such displays is constantly growing, because the 16:9 format is more natural to the human eye’s field of vision and therefore offers an enormous variety of applications.
NEC Electronics takes this development into account with an innovative 15.3-inches (39 cm diagonal) TFT display with 16:9 format. Gleichmann Electronics presents at embedded world 2008 in Nuremberg, Booth 235 in Hall 9, the 15.3 inches TFT display, part number NL12876BC26-25, which is based on Super-Advanced Super Fine TFT (SA-SFT) technology. This technology is a further development, specifically for industrial requirements, of In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology. The SA-SFT technology guarantees a viewing angle of 85° typical on all four sides (up, down, right and left) without color reversal or color shift. The display can therefore be mounted horizontally, vertically or even be rotated 180 degrees.
The panel is characterized by a high transmission and consequently a high luminance of 470 cd/m², a contrast ratio of 700:1, a very short (for this technology) response time of 25 ms and an extended operating temperature of -10°C to +70°C. Power consumption of the display, which is equipped with four cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFLs),is only 18.0 W. The NL12876BC26-25 is controlled via an 8-bit LVDS interface.
Because of the excellent technical features of the NL12876BC26-25, it can be used in many applications. Typical applications include: visualization tasks in industrial automation, point of information terminals (POI) and entertainment applications. Due to long-term availability (from experience, more than four years) and the very wide viewing angle, the NL12876BC26-25 is also suitable for use in medical monitoring devices.
For each respective field of application, Gleichmann Electronics offers a comprehensive range of accessories such as: suitable inverters, cable forms, touch systems and controller cards, both for analog RGB and video applications.
