    The Titan and Titan Lite have been engineered for configuration flexibility, allowing customers to choose the standard electronics (e.g., display, video controller, power supply), as well as the optional electromechanical options such as display overlays (e.g., touch screens, vandal shields, heaters, EMI filters), I/O connections (e.g., video, touch, power) and other display enhancements (e.g., optical bonding, film laminations).

    Often, some tailoring of our enclosure designs are necessary to meet a customer’s specific requirements. The requests vary widely from military requirements for environment, shock/vibration, and/or emissions, to unique mounting requirements, specialty cooling or custom colors. Rest assured we are well equipped to handle special requests.


    Enclosures

    The Titan Series’ rugged enclosures are designed for durability, safety, design flexibility and long product life cycle. They are constructed from heavy-duty aluminum and intended to survive in harsh environments such as factory floors, food processing, medical and military (MIL-STD-810F/MIL-DTL-901E) applications.

    Our enclosures are completely coated with Iridite® to provide protection from corrosion and improve shielding properties where parts make contact with one another. All external surfaces are finished with a durable black powder coat paint, although custom colors are available upon request.Panel1


    Mounting Options

    Titan’s ruggedized enclosures are designed to be used either as portable displays that can be transported from one location to another, or be mounted using the supplied mounting holes located on the rear and/or sides of the enclosures. Each Standalone enclosure is configured with a set of VESA standard mounting holes on the rear, allowing for the attachment of numerous desktop pedestals (standard or custom), cradles, articulating arms and mounting yokes. Speak with one of our Sales Engineers for a no-obligation consultation to determine the best mounting option for your application.


    Connector Panels

    Panel2

    All of the interfaces (video, serial, power, etc.) utilize shielded locking connectors that are (typically) located on the rear of the enclosure. Other interfaces are available for field programmability and firmware upgrades, CompactFlash readers, USB ports and more.


    Gaskets

    General Digital offers a variety of standard and custom gaskets to augment the performance of the Titan and Titan Lite:

    • Watertight (NEMA 4/6) gaskets are installed between the LCD (or overlay) and the front bezel to prevent liquids from entering the enclosure through the display opening.
    • Dust gaskets are often supplied for monitors that do not require a liquid-tight seal between the display and/or overlay and the bezel, or for systems that use a touch technology that are only compatible with certain gasket types.
    • EMI/RFI gaskets reduce radiated and conducted emissions of the monitor.
    • Desiccating gaskets can be used to prevent moisture/condensation from forming between the LCD and the overlay when exposed to high humidity.

    Display Brightness and Night Vision Enhancements

    Display
     

    General Digital can integrate virtually any LCD display size/resolution, from almost any panel manufacturer (OEM), into our enclosures. To assist in selecting the right panel for your application requirements, we have provided a list of commonly used or recommended panels for standard/low luminance, high brightness, sunlight readable and NVIS compatible needs.

    New display models are constantly being introduced to the market by the LCD manufacturers, making it extremely difficult for us to maintain a comprehensive list. For this reason, we encourage you to speak with a Sales Engineer to share your price and performance objectives, so we can assist you in making the best display selection.

    Standard Displays
    General Digital has provided a sample listing of some common transmissive displays that are not sunlight readable. Typically, these displays are suitable for applications that are not going to require specialty functionality, such as sunlight readability or NVIS compatibility, and for customers with cost-sensitive budgets.

    Standard Brightness Display

    LCD backlight produces sufficient luminance for use in office, shaded and low ambient/darkness light levels. However, luminance is insufficient to overcome reflected light for use in direct sunlight.

    Transmissive-Enhanced View Displays
    This type of technology boosts the efficiency of the backlight’s light utilization and minimizes surface reflection of ambient light. It is a transmissive LCD module that produces high contrast images, even in bright outdoor light and direct sunlight. These displays feature a wider color reproduction range than reflective LCDs. Featuring an LED backlight, these displays consume very little power and produce very little heat, making them ideal for integration into fully sealed enclosures, which are devoid of ventilation holes and cooling fans to dissipate heat. They also provide the additional benefit of a wide operating/storage temperature (as great as -30°–85° C), so that they can endure exposure to greater internal ambient temperatures.

    As a design note, we have found that these panels work best when coupled with an overlay that has an antireflective (AR) coating. Overlays that inhibit transmissivity (e.g., resistive touch screen) or have antiglare (AG) coatings will significantly reduce the panel’s performance in high ambient lighting conditions. Since transmissive displays produce greater brightness from their LED backlights than traditional transflective displays, they are regarded as a better outdoor solution, as they can generate high contrast in total darkness, in direct sunlight or on a cloudy/hazy afternoon.

    Standard Brightness Display1

    T-EVT technology uses the high brightness/efficiency LED backlight as a light source while minimizing the surface reflection of ambient light. The result is an LCD that produces high contrast images even in bright outdoor light or direct sunlight.

    GenFlective™/Transflective Displays
    This type of panel incorporates a highly reflective backlight that reflects the ambient lighting back out of the display to enhance its native brightness produced by its active backlight. Like the Transmissive-Enhanced View Displays, GenFlective panels work best when coupled with an AR-coated overlay. They are least effective with overlays that retard the light transmission (e.g., resistive touch sensors) or have a matte finish.

    Standard Brightness Display2

    T-EVT technology uses the high brightness/efficiency LED backlight as a light source while minimizing the surface reflection of ambient light. The result is an LCD that produces high contrast images even in bright outdoor light or direct sunlight.

    Sunlight Readable/NVIS Compatible Displays
    These displays feature a value-add backlight, typically made from high efficiency LEDs. These displays produce significant active luminance. Often, the peak luminance is limited by internal ambient temperature constraints or must be connected to an intelligent backlight controller and thermal sensor that will automatically reduce brightness/power to avoid over-temperature conditions or thermal shutdown. The high luminance output makes them ideal for use with a wide variety of overlays such as touch sensors, EMI filters, heaters, etc.

    Standard Brightness Display3

    Sunlight readable displays use a General Digital-enhanced, highly efficient, super bright/sunlight readable LED backlight to provide maximum functional brightness. The addition of surface treatments such as antireflective coatings and optical bonding reduce surface reflections and increase contrast so displays can be used in direct sunlight.

    If our stock offering does not suit your needs in terms of size, fit or function, please contact a Sales Engineer and we will work with you to configure a system to your specifications. Customers can also request that we integrate one of our many LED-based sunlight readableNVIS or sunlight readable/NVIS enhanced displays into their product. These solutions provide many advantages, such as increased longevity, improved durability, higher brightness, lower power consumption and/or NVIS compatibility.

    Options & Accessories

    A myriad of display enhancements and services are available, such as:

    Optional film laminations increase contrast and decrease glare, reflections
