When designing a piece of industrial equipment, one may wonder if upgrading to an LCD interface is worth the expense or redesign. While it may seem to be a hassle, the advantages of employing an LCD interface can increase production and make it easy to customize interaction.
Expansive Technical Support
- Diverse range of brands for all markets.
- Because of the saturation of LCDs around the world, there will always be lasting support and different brands to offer endless combinations of features and specs.
- LCDS are accepted as the primary form or human-machine interaction across many different markets (restaurants, self-serve kiosks, ATMs, handheld and machine controllers, GPS and infotainment devices, RADAR displays, HUDs, etc.).
High Quality Optics
- LCDs provide the best optical quality for the price.
- LCDs still provide the best cost to quality ratio when compared to other display tech such as OLED and MicroLED.
- LCDs are a thin, low weight, and compact display option.
- A wide variety of aspect ratios are available, as well as displays with portrait or landscape viewing mode.
- Wide viewing angles allow for off center viewing without visual distortion.
- The long-lasting development of LCDs have eliminated the bugs that compromise many other display technologies such as burn in, sub-par luminance, and inconsistent colors.
- Long lasting lifecycles allow most displays to be used for up to 50k hours (or potentially up to 6 years of non-stop usage).
- The LEDs that illuminate an LCD are energy efficient option and can become even more so when equipped with programmable dimming options to limit power consumption.
- Low heat output, low EMI emission, low power requirements (makes it suitable for portable devices).
- Films, LEDs, polarizers, controllers, power supplies, touch screens, frames and mounting
- Ruggedization, EMI protection, coverglass options
- Touch sensor customization – fingertip activation or glove activation
- Print screen logo, button overlay designs and more
