VarTech's 4th generation of All-Weather waterproof displays and LCD/Computers are built to IP67/NEMA 6 standards. Engineered and tested to survive very harsh computing environments, these rugged, sunlight readable displays & LCD/computers can withstand wet or dirty working conditions, shock and vibration, and wide operational temperatures. The machined black power-coat aviation grade aluminum construction allows for exceptional corrosion resistance and protection from the elements. Our All-Weather PC’s are also available as ACP enabled Thin Clients.

LCD Display
• Harsh Duty LCD Panel with 16.77 Million Display Colors: 
Designed for diverse industrial, military and marine applications. This advanced LCD module features a low power consumption white LED backlight system, in a light weight slim-line package that is highly resistant to shock / vibration, and wide operational temperatures. This is NOT a consumer grade LCD cell.
• Highly Reliable Solid State LED Backlighting - True High Brightness, Low Power: 
  • Luminance Levels from 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). This driver includes our mixed-mode dimming operation for stable low end dimming and ultra wide dimming ranges.
  • 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 with a projected lifetime that 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" (includes Military Grade model) and 12.1": XGA 1024 x 768
• Resolution for 12.1" (wide screen format model) WXGA 1280 x 800
• 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 displays 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 than traditional reflective LCDs, even in bright outdoor light. 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
• Ultra-Wide Viewing Angles
• Optional Blackout Button - 1-touch button for instantaneous enable/disable of display backlight.

Environmental
• Enclosure Completely Sealed to IP67 (NEMA 6) Specifications; Protection Against Liquid Immersion
  (Watertight), Rain, Dust, Ice Formation and other contaminants;
• All Connectors Environmentally Sealed to IP67 (NEMA 6) Standards;
• Rugged Machined 6061 T6 All-Aluminum Construction
• Bonded Protective Glass Overlay with Sealed Waterproof Gasket; VBOND (learn More)
• 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 impair performance considerably. Our waterproof/dust-proof protective pressure equalization venting system (IP69K) is a barrier against this type of contamination (more details).
