“Currently, the industry standard is only a 10.1 inch consumer grade screen that can operate within a restrictive 0-50 degrees C,” said Jim Kennedy, president, AZ Displays. “The PM102ZY3 has been designed to offer our customers a product that can be used in more extreme conditions, providing them expanded application possibilities.”
Further improving on the industry standard TFT display, AZ Displays has increased the product’s life cycle from the industry standard 18 months to up to five years. “The short life cycle of other TFT displays does not work for many customers who require a product with long term support without changes,” said Kennedy. “Our improvements make this product ideal for use in industrial GPS units or for rugged outdoor applications where extended temperature performance is required.”
Key attributes of the PM102ZY3 TFT display include a wide operating temperature range of -20 degrees C to +80 degrees C, a low power LED backlight and a small outline rugged packaging that measures 235 mm wide by 146 mm high by 6.2 mm deep.
