Extended Operating Temperature Range

Temperature enhanced rugged displays to go where you need them

Extreme temperatures can cause a number for problems for LCD displays. An inexpensive computer monitor, the kind you buy at your local big box store or from a commodity supplier in Asia, may have an operating temperature range of 0° C to 32 or 40° C. That's fine for most office uses but is inadequate for many industrial applications. To meet the operating temperature requirements of our industrial customers, all IEE industrial displays start with an extended range (-30° to 80° C) panel from one of several leading glass manufacturers.

If these extended operating ranges are not sufficient, IEE can further enhance the displays by adding auxiliary fans and heaters to mitigate the effects of hot or cold environments. Custom fans can be designed to accommodate your case and we can optically bond transparent heaters to the front of the LCD with a minimal impact on image quality. For extreme heat conditions, we can even replace the stock backlighting system with one rated up to 85° C.
