GTK adds 10.1 inch version to extended temperature TFT portfolio

The family of extended operating temperature range TFTs from GTK now include a 10.1-inch version. This is becoming the “go to” screen size for OEMs, said Clive Dickinson, business manager for displays at GTK. “Typically, TFT displays operate at temperatures between -20 c to +70 degrees C, but displays in this range can operate between -30 to +85 degrees C, meaning they can be used in a wider range of applications, he added.

The 10.1 inch display uses IPS technology, LVDS connectivity and has 1,000 cd brightness making it sunlight readable. It also features an extended backlight half-like of 50,000 hours, making it suitable for industrial, always-on display applications.  All of these features, combined with its extended temperature range, make the TFT display suitable for a variety of harsh environments and outdoor applications.

GTK can offer OEMs options such as custom enhancements, custom capacitive sensors and extended glass cover lenses to allow flush fitting into recessed housings.

GTK’s technical experts can support OEMs with new product designs including display selection, customisation and connectivity.

GTK is a wholly owned subsidiary of Volex. It provides custom cable assemblies, power cords, connectors and displays. The company can also provide custom, turnkey manufacturing solutions. 

For over 25 years, the company has provided its customers with products that comply with the relevant industry standards. GTK is headquartered in the UK with offices in Germany and Taiwan. Production facilities are in the UK, Romania, Taiwan and China.
