Product Type
• Harsh Duty LCD Panel with 16.77 Million Display Colors: 
Designed for diverse industrial, military and marine display applications. This advanced LCD module features a unique white LED backlight system, low power consumption, and a slim-line package that, while light weight, is highly resistant to shock / vibration and wide operational temperatures. This is NOT a consumer grade LCD cell.
• True High Brightness Low-Power, high reliability Solid State LED Backlighting: 
  • High Luminance Levels: 1000 to 1500 nits (cd/m2) depending on model
  • No risk of backlight hard failure
  • LED array provides light-source redundancy
  • No voltage in drive circuitry
  • Virtually instant warm-up
  • Superior electrical to light efficiency allows our LED backlit LCDs to provide sunlight readability while consuming significantly less power than that of traditional CCFL backlit panels.
  • Each LED backlit display is matched with our VTLED driver technology, the latest in technology for driving solid state High Bright Light Emitting Diodes (HBLEDs) (more details). This driver includes our patented mixed-mode dimming operation, for stable low end dimming and ultra wide dimming ranges, minimum 1000:1.
  • LED backlights provide improved shock & vibration and improved brightness uniformity over CCFL backlights.
  • VarTech’s thermally efficient designs enhance the long life characteristics of the high bright LEDs. Projected lifetime of our LED backlights exceeds 65,000 hours.
• Resolution for 8.4" (LCD ONLY), 10.4": SVGA 800 x 600 (optional XGA 1024 x 768)
• Resolution for 15.0" and 12.1": XGA 1024 x 768
• VarTech's VBOND (more details) seals either a top cover glass or touch screen directly to the
  face of the LCD which: 
  • Significantly improves Reflective Light Loss;
  • Provides the best reduction of ambient light washout of any commercially available enhancement technology;
  • Enhances structural integrity by supporting the LCD assembly with the cover glass;
  • Offers superior ruggedization, including enhancing the display's durability under vibration, shock and other environmental extremes;
  • Increases Extrinsic Contrast significantly;
  • Eliminates the air-gap between LCD and touch screen overlay:
    • Prevents the 'greenhouse' effect;
    • Prevents fogging and moisture build up;
    • Eliminates any contamination from dirt and/or other obstructive particles;
• VarTech's proprietary Optical Stack Enhancement (OSE) is a unique optical design: 

It boosts efficiency of the backlight's light utilization and minimizes the surface reflection of ambient light. The result is a transmissive enhancement that features higher contrast and a wider range of colors, even in bright outdoor light, than traditional reflective LCDs. This is accomplished by:

  • Recycling what would be wasted off axis light and then redirecting light towards the viewer;
  • Reflecting and recycling polarized light which under normal circumstances 50% of the backlight output would have been absorbed into the LCD and subsequently wasted;
  • Finally, the use of a multilayer, ultra-high reflectivity, mirror-like optical enhancement film that is used as a very efficient light guide and cavity reflector with a reflectivity of 98.5% across the visible spectrum which provides a brighter more efficient display.

• 1000:1 - Dimming from 100% brightness down to true black via manual dimming dial

• Extreme Wide Operational Temperatures:
     Standard: -20° to 60°C (-4°F to 140°F). Optional: -40°C to 60°C available(LCD ONLY).
• Harsh Duty Variable Power Supply:
     9 to 36 VDC, Wide Range, Low Noise, Wide Operational Temperature (Optional AC Power Supply)
• Pressure Venting and Equalization: 

Changing temperatures, dust, salt, and moisture considerably impact the electronics of marine equipment. Rain or splashing sea water, for example, can cool down an electronic enclosure dramatically, causing a vacuum of 200 mbar (3 psi) or more inside the enclosure. If the pressure is not equalized, air and moisture are drawn through the seal into the enclosure where the moisture condenses on the cooler inner walls. This can considerably impair performance. VarTech's protective pressure equalization venting system is a barrier against this type of contamination. The vent is waterproof and dustproof to IP69K standards (more details).
