RUGGED LCD MONITOR-KEYBOARD DRAWER FOR DIVERSE ENVIRONMENTS

The SlimLine 1U has an extremely low profile, occupying only one vertical rack unit (1U = 1.75"/44.45 mm). It achieves this ultra-low profile by tilting an LCD from behind the keyboard, such that the display lies flat (facing upward) and behind the keyboard when stowed in the rack.

ENCLOSURES

Constructed from a combination of aluminum and steel to provide a rugged, cost-effective and flexible design platform, this formidable LCD monitor-keyboard drawer is intended for use in industrial and military applications. The enclosures are completely irridited 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.

A pair of solid-bearing chassis slides facilitates the mounting of the SlimLine 1U into a rack chassis, and stowed out of the way in space-constrained environments.

Normally, the slides are installed as a standard set in even lengths (e.g., 20", 22", 24"). However, in the event that a customer requires special functionality or extension lengths, we can provide custom slide assemblies (at additional cost) as a non-standard combination of the rails.

PROTECTIVE GLASS/OVERLAY AND SEALED GASKET

General Digital offers a variety of standard and custom gaskets to augment the performance of the TwoView Series:

  • Watertight gaskets  (e.g., closed cell, neoprene, rubber, single-sided adhesive, double-sided adhesive, O-ring) are installed between the LCD (or overlay) and the front bezel to prevent liquids from entering the enclosure through the display opening.
  • Dust gaskets (e.g., open cell 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 (e.g., SAW) that are only compatible with certain gasket types.
  • EMI/RFI gaskets reduce radiated and conducted emissions of the monitor.
  • Dessicating gaskets can be used to prevent moisture/condensation from forming between the LCD and the overlay when exposed to high humidity.

Close-ups of different types of gaskets


CONNECTIONS

Interface connectors on the SlimLine 1U are located on a pair of connector panels located at the rear of the main enclosure, on either side of the display head assembly.

All of the standard interfaces (video source, keyboard, pointing device and power) utilize a locking style connector (where applicable).

Photos of interface connectors and power supply


POWER

By default, the SlimLine 1U is configured to operate from a separate +12 Vdc or +24 Vdc. Optionally, an integrated AC switching power supply is available.

For applications requiring a more shallow enclosure or a unique power source, we optionally offer a DC input and/or DC-DC converters with a wider input power range and reverse polarity.

DISPLAYS AND BACKLIGHTS


Display and backlight types
General Digital can integrate virtually any LCD display size/resolution, from almost any panel manufacturer (OEM), into our TwoView 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 (SLIMLINE 1U)
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 types
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 (SLIMLINE 1U SOLAR)
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.

Transmissive-EVT High Brightness Display Types
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 (SLIMLINE 1U SOLAR)
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, these 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.

GenFlective/Transflective High Brightness Display Types
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 (SLIMLINE 1U SOLAR)/NVIS COMPATIBLE (SLIMLINE 1U SOLAR NVIS) 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.

Sunlight Readable/NVIS-Compatible Display Types
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 readable, NVIS or sunlight readable/NVIS enhanced displays into their TwoView product. These solutions provide many advantages, such as increased longevity, improved durability, higher brightness, lower power consumption and/or NVIS compatibility.

VIDEO AND CONTROLS

Close-up of video controller PCB

1 Since the SlimLine 1U Series does not include an embedded power supply as standard equipment, we strongly recommend the purchase of a General Digital-manufactured power supply, which is specially designed and tested to work with our LCD monitors. Please note that these supplies include the required DC harness and connector to interface to your SlimLine unit.
2 Consult a Sales Engineer to select from a multitude of AC switching or DC–DC supplies that can be mounted within the customer’s rack. General Digital can assist in specifying a commercial, industrial or military power supply that will meet your specific requirements.

General Digital designs and manufactures scores of different monitor configurations each year, making the creation of technical documentation for each configuration impractical. We efficiently combine data into a select few documents, which answer most questions that customers typically ask. Please feel welcome to request any information not found here.
