• Rugged Machined 6061 T6 Aluminum Enclosure
• Ram Mount (more details) – More mounting options available, see below (All Mounting Hardware Sold Separately)
• 10.4" 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:
• Resolution: Native SVGA 800 x 600 (optional XGA 1024 x 768 available)
• VarTech's VBOND (more details) seals either a top cover glass or touch screen directly
to the face of the LCD which:
• 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:
• Advanced Deep Dimming to Black
• Wide Viewing Angles: (Up/Dwn/L/R) 80°/80°/80°/80° (Optional 85°/85°/85°/85° w/ XGA)
• Contrast Ratio: 900:1
• Display Color: 16.77M colors / 262K colors
• Response Time: 18ms
• Pixel Pitch: 0.264 x 0.264
• Enclosure Completely Sealed to IP67 (NEMA 6) Specifications; Protect Against Liquid Immersion
(Watertight), Rain, Dust, Ice Formation and offers protection from Other Contaminants;
• All Connectors Environmentally Sealed, Regardless of Connection also to IP67 (NEMA 6) Standards;
• Black Powder-Coated Rugged Machined 6061 T6 All-Aluminum Construction
• Bonded Protective Glass Overlay or Touch Screen with Sealed Waterproof Gasket
• Extreme Wide Operational Temperatures:
Standard: -20° to 70°C (-4°F to 158°F). Optional: -40°C to 70°C available. Storage Temperatures:
-40°C to 75°C (-40°F to 167°F)
• VarTech’s Harsh Environment Controller Board - Shock & Vibration Tolerant, including low-mass
tantalum capacitors, Wide Operational Temperature Range
• Harsh Duty Variable Power Supply:
9 to 36 VDC, Wide Range, Low Noise, Wide Operational Temperature (Optional AC Power,
Universal Input 85 to 264 VAC) (more details)
• 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).
