Most electronics today offer a screen-based human-computer interaction with the help of industrial LCD display technology. With lots of applications, several specifications are available to match all requirements perfectly. This variety of options can make your selection process a little hard.
Choosing an LCD display for industrial usage requires you to consider the following factors carefully.
The first thing to check is the type that will be right for you. You may find several options, including:
· Open frame display
· Embedded display
· Rack mount display
· Wall mount display
· Flip-chip display
All these types are designed for industrial usage, but there are a few differences, making these perfect for only a few uses. So, you need to choose the right type according to your requirement.
The display you get will not be your stand-alone display, as you will most probably connect it with a whole system. For that connection, you will use the interface of this display, and with variable interface options, one may not be perfect for your system.
So, to get the most out of your display, check the interface, as it plays a vital role in making a display suitable and unsuitable for your needs.
The combination of high resolution with high luminance makes a display readable under direct sunlight, but not all users need that. For instance, if a display is intended for indoor industrial usage, you may not need extremely high luminance.
Similarly, high resolution may not be necessary for text-based content. Thus, get the display with the right resolution and brightness nits specifications to keep the prices low while maintaining functionality.
Some industrial displays have to stay on for 24 hours, while some only stay on during office hours. Depending on their usage, ones running for 24 hours may last only for 5-10 years, depending on the conditions. So, you must select the display according to your usage requirements or service life.
Today LCDs for industrial usage come with efficient power consumption features. These have non-radiation features, energy-saving modes, and low energy consumption components. Thus, the latest displays consume only one-third of the power compared to traditional CDT monitors. However, it also depends on your luminance requirements.
The last thing to look for is smart features. Having these can be a plus point. For instance, the auto-dimming function can lower the brightness level when needed. It enhances the experience for employees and customers by making the screen easier to read in every condition.
Today, you may find many industrial LCD display options with the varying interface, operating temperatures, resolutions, and sizes. Instead of going with any available option, you must go for the one that fulfills all your requirements and falls within the right temperature ranges.
