Industrial 15-inch TFT LCDs feature 170° of viewing angle in all directions

With two new variants (LQ150X1LW12 and LQ150X1LG11) Sharp now expands its range of industrial TFT LCDs with a diagonal of 15" (38.0 cm) to four models.

The displays are characterised by their respective contrast ratios of 1000:1 and 800:1 - a basis for brilliant image reproduction - which in both cases is also due to the 16.8 million colours. The LQ150X1LW12 model also has a wide viewing angle of 170° in all directions, making it suitable for all screen applications in which several people need an unobstructed view from different directions, as in the case of display panels in control rooms or in commercial applications such as POS monitors. Featuring a brightness of 600 cd/m² and an extended operating temperature of -20°C to 70°C, the LQ150X1LG11 model it particularly suited for use outdoors or in semi-protected areas. Both new models have LED backlighting with a life-cycle of at least 50,000 hours. The drivers controlling the LED backlighting via pulse-width modulation are also integrated.
