EarthLCD Intros Small Form Factor TFT Displays
Small form factor LCD display.
San Juan Capistrano, CA — EarthLCD has introduced a new family of color 8-in. LCDs in response to increasing market demand for a small form factor display suitable for a multitude of applications. The new family includes eight models that are of rugged construction, low power, small footprint, and bright TFT color displays with varying mounting and configuration options for product design versatility.

Durable construction combined with what is anticipated to be the most popular and requested size, the new 8-in. displays are suitable for a wide range of applications such as industrial control, retail POS terminals, kiosks, digital signage, and security monitoring. According to the company, the 8-in. TFT displays provide the solution for OEMs and integrators who had been previously forced to use larger sizes. Such larger displays were often overkill and not cost-effective, and were also real estate hogs. The new family solves these problems by providing a more appropriate size screen for small footprint applications, while also offering more pleasing esthetics and convenience for the end product.

Eight models and a wide selection of configuration options provide optimum product design versatility. Customers can choose from standard or "touch" capability, USB or RS-232 Touch Controllers, and VGA/NTSC or VGA only controller options. For flexible mounting, displays can be ordered in kit form, open frame, and with or without enclosure.

All models with enclosures come standard with a panavise mount that allows quick installation and easy display maneuverability at varying angles. The panavise mount's fully articulating, two point ball joint attachment spans 5-3/4-in. end to end and allows full adjustment left to right and up and down.

Other standard features in all the models include a bright (250 nits) 8-in. LED TFT LCD with 262,144 colors and a response time of Tr+Tf 25ms. This versatile LCD also has an anti-glare coating, a hardness rating of 3H, and a viewing angle of (BL on, CRr10) 140° (H), 120° (V).
