High Bright LED Backlights:
All of Viewpoints rugged displays are built with a high-bright LED (HBLED) backlight system. High-bright LEDs offer many advantages over the traditional cold cathode fluorescent lamps that are currently being used by many other display providers, including: higher reliability, better durability, lower power consumption, better dimming, and operation over a wider temperature range.
Optically Bonded Cover Glass:
Each Viewpoint rugged monitor includes a piece of anti-reflective glass that is “optically bonded” to the front of display. This glass improves the impact resistance of the display, improves sunlight readability, and increases the stiffness and torsional rigidity of the display thus reducing the likelihood of mechanically induced electrical an optical failures.
Rugged, Wide Range, Power Supply:
All of Viewpoints rugged displays are built with a military grade, wide range power supply. Viewpoint’s power supply will accept a 18V to 26V DC input range, provide transient surge protection, and operate at temperatures between -55C and 100C
Wide Operating Temperature Range:
All of the components within Viewpoint’s displays are carefully selected to ensure operability and long term reliability across an extreme temperature range. Viewpoint’s displays are designed to operate between -20C and 70C. The low end of the range can be extended to -40C with the LCD heater option (see below).
All of Viewpoints rugged LCDs include index matched optical coatings that enable direct sunlight readability.
The resolution of a display is determined by the number of distinct pixels that can be displayed in each direction of the LCD. The higher the resolution (or number of pixels), the higher the level of video detail. All of Viewpoints displays are high resolution (SVGA resolution or higher, >= 800 X 600 pixels) to ensure that end users can properly distinguish between different input images.
Wide Viewing Angle:
The viewing angle of a display determines how far a user can view the display from an off-axis position (left, right, up or down) without losing clarity of the image. All of Viewpoints displays are built with LCDs that have ultra-wide, multidirectional angles to ensure that there aren’t any blind spots during use.
All of Viewpoint’s rugged displays are built with environmentally sealed, high durability, military grade connectors.
Viewpoint’s display enclosures are chemically treated to protect against corrosion. All front metal surfaces are anodized in accordance with MIL-A-8625F or power coated. Rear metal surfaces are chem-filmed in accordance with MIL-C-5541 Class 1A, gold.
