KYOCERA introduces small-format LCDs with increased temperature range for industrial applications

Two robust TFT modules now round out the range of the Kyocera Display Group

24 March 2015

Kyoto / Neuss – The Japanese technology corporation Kyocera, a leading manufacturer in the field of electronic devices, has expanded its range of LCDs by adding two small-format TFT modules with diagonals measuring 4.2" and 5". Both modules are designed for use in harsh environments, such as outdoor remote controls, construction equipment, and anything that requires a wide operating temperature range.

The new 4.2-inch TFT LCD module (T-57152GD042H-LW-AAN) features a resolution of 480x272 pixels, brightness of 700 cd/m², a digital 18-bit RGB interface, a contrast ratio of 1200:1, and horizontal and vertical viewing angles of 160 degrees each. The design is based on automotive requirements and boasts an expanded operating temperature range of -30°C to +85°C and a storage temperature range of -40°C to 95°C. In addition, the anti-glare surface treatment improves readability in bright surroundings.

The new 5.0-inch TFT module (T-55923GD050J-LW-ABN) is a portrait-mode display that features a resolution of 480x640 pixels. Optical characteristics include 800 cd/m² brightness and a 500:1 contrast ratio. The viewing angle amounts to 140 degrees horizontally and 110 degrees vertically. This module comes with a 24-bit digital RGB interface and has a wide operating temperature range of -30°C to +80°C.

“Portable outdoor devices are liable to fall down and are exposed to low temperatures, heat and humidity. Even in these conditions, they should always work reliably, and our components are designed for that purpose,” says Eberhard Schill, Manager Distribution and Marketing at Kyocera Display Europe GmbH.

The Kyocera Group is actively engaged in the development of environmentally friendly products and continually strives to reduce the use of environmentally degrading materials and processes in industry. As a matter of course, the company’s products comply with the EU’s RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) directive.
