Distec signs to distribute KOE’s industrial TFT displays in kit form
Robust, industrial TFT displays manufactured by Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics (KOE) are now available from Distec. The distributor specialises in TFT flat screens and system solutions for industrial and multimedia applications.
The KOE TFT Rugged series of displays can be controlled with Distec’s Prisma TFT controllers. The official distributor offers kits with all necessary accessories. The robust displays are suitable for extreme operating conditions such as automation, industry 4.0, digital signage, public transport, agriculture and construction.
KOE’s Rugged series TFT displays are resistant to vibration and shock. They offer high brightness and a wide viewing angle with IPS technology for readability in bright ambient light and when viewed from the side. Zero Bright Dot is standard.
KOE’s reliability test criteria exceed the industry standard by a factor of two, reports Distec. Some KOE displays are already manufactured with LTPS technology, giving them extra low power consumption for trouble-free use in mobile devices, claims the company. Distec’s VacuBond optical bonding process applies a protective glass to the display to protect against pollution and damage caused by harsh operating conditions. The bonding process is available on request and makes it easier to clean the display. The high-tech OPTa-GEL used in this process further increases the vibration and shock resistance of the bonded unit, claims Distec. Touch screens can also be optically bonded to the display.
Distec has a selection of KOE TFT displays in stock. The entire KOE product range is available on request. Plug and play kits customised system integrations are possible.
