General Digital is incorporating more of its rugged LCD monitors with LED backlit displays. LED backlights have several advantages over CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lamp) backlights: they’re able to withstand harsher shock and vibration environments, they can easily operate at temperatures as low as -40° C, their low voltage allows them to run at high altitudes with no risk of arcing, their low IR (infrared) signature makes them ideal for NVIS (Night Vision Imaging System) applications. General Digital has designed and sold several systems with display sizes of 8.4″ to 20.1″. Contact a Sales Engineer today to discuss how LED backlighting can benefit your application.
