Convert and Upgrade your Legacy CRT Operator Panel to Modern LCD Technology with VarTech's Retrofit Program
For some time now the LCD market has replaced Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) technology, however there are still a large number of processes and applications that utilize CRTs as the main means of display and communication between the operator of machinery and the process. CRTs are heavy, take up space, and consume large amounts of electricity. Original CRT manufacturers have migrated production to LCD technology which has made locating available usable CRTs difficult if not impossible.
With many industrial/medical/military applications, these CRT monitors are embedded in the equipment they supervise and/or control which makes upgrade difficult and sometimes impossible. Unique shapes, screen sizes, mechanical formats and communication interfaces are typically different than current LCD technology which can require costly and substantial modifications to the customerís host equipment that may be inefficient or even impossible. Another distinct problem lies in communication between the much older host equipment and the new LCD display. Typically, current LCD communication protocol will not interface with the host equipment which might be 10-30 years old.
Companies utilizing CRT-based operator stations be that from the CNC machines, Numeric Control Machines, Medical equipment, PLC or DCS based operator stations/panels now have access to a better, more cost effective alternative. By special development of our own Signal Recognition and Scaling software, and access to an extensive library of older signal timings gained from 25 plus years of CRT monitor manufacturing, VarTech has created Multiscan "Universal" LCD technology with unique 15kHz to 64kHz display capabilities. We have the unique ability to "Retrofit" all new VarTech electronics and a new Flat Panel LCD into your existing chassis, eliminating any concerns regarding mounting into your operator equipment while providing reliable communication between the new LCD and your older video format.
