Industrial display manufacturer, KOE, has announced its 7.0-inch Rugged+ TFT display. The TX18D212VM0BAA features WXGA (1280 x 768 pixels) resolution, a 5:3 wide aspect ratio, an extended operating temperature range and IPS (in-plane switching) wide viewing angle technology that KOE says ‘delivers exceptional optical performance’.

Designed for use in high reliability industrial, in-vehicle, medical, aerospace and marine environments, the Rugged+ 7.0-inch display is designed for use where extreme temperature, mechanical shock and vibration are present. KOE adds that the environmental and optical specifications of the Rugged+ display modules are derived from the same exacting standards as used in automotive specification display modules.

When used in human-machine interfaces, KOE claims its IPS display technology delivers ‘exceptional’ colour saturation and image stability, high contrast and deep black levels with 170° wide viewing angles (vertical and horizontal).

The 7.0-inch display features a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a white LED backlight with a brightness specification of 1000cd/m². The display module has a built-in dimming control allowing backlight brightness to be controlled with a PWM or DC voltage input.

The 20-pin LVDS interface supports 8-bit RGB, which enables a colour palette of up to 16.7M colours. The display module is manufactured using chip-on-glass construction and has mechanical outline dimensions of 164.4mm (w) x 105mm (h) x 13.5mm (d) and an active display area of 152.45mm (w) x 91.47mm (h). The Rugged+ module supports a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C and storage temperature range -40°C to +90°C.
