Infovue High/Low Temp LCD Series for Extreme Condition Applications Provides up to 50% Technology Cost Savings and 80% Energy Savings
Custom Lumex LCD displays also provide enhanced reliability and visual performance
Lumex announces the global launch of their InfoVue High/Low Temp series of custom, high-duty LCD displays for applications that perform in extreme heat or extreme cold. InfoVue High/Low Temp LCD displays provide a number of key benefits including reliable performance in a wider range of extreme temperatures, enhanced visual display quality and significant technology cost and energy savings.
Previously LCDs that operated in extreme cold or extreme heat required bulky built-in heaters and coolers in order to ensure performance, explained Yasoob Ahmed, Display Technology Manager, at Lumex.
The special liquid crystal used in the InfoVue High/Low Temp series eliminates the need for coolers and allows us to use low-power heaters -- allowing our LCDs to perform in more extreme conditions. Custom InfoVue LCD displays now provide superior performance and cost savings compared to alternative off-the-shelf technologies.
Whereas existing LCD technology performed in the -20℃ to +70℃ temperature range, InfoVue High/Low Temp displays provide reliable, consistent high-quality performance from -40℃ to +85℃, making Lumex LCD technology a viable solution for a growing number of extreme condition applications. The growing demand for extreme-condition LCD technology can be seen in military, freezer, gas pumps/fuel meters, non-automotive transportation, and non-climate controlled facility applications.
Custom InfoVue High/Low Temp LCD displays can provide a 50% savings in technology costs and 80% energy savings when compared to alternative technologies such as vacuum fluorescents.
InfoVue High/Low Temp LCD displays also offer significant visual performance benefits. Whereas conventional LCD displays can only provide alphanumeric displays in a limited number of segments and colors, InfoVue LCD displays provide full graphic capability and daylight visibility. When combined with LED backlighting technology, a wide range of color options are available. Users can either opt for a monochromatic screen with any color of LED backlight, or select negative image option with mono colored pixels and a black background.
InfoVue High/Low Temp LCD displays can be produced in sizes ranging from 8 x 1 character displays to 320 x 240 pixel graphic displays.
