New Sharp LED backlit displays available through APC displays+

Aug. 20, 2009
Date Announced: 20 Aug 2009 Sharp has extended its successful range of industry-compatible LCDs with LED background lighting by introducing two new displays available in the UK through APC displays+.The 23-inch LQ231U1LW31 display is characterised above all by its excellent optical characteristics including an amazing 500 cd/m brightness, a wide viewing angle of up to 170° in all directions, incredible colour depth with 16 million colours and a high static contrast of 600:1 for industry displays. Its antireflection coating also helps to ensure that the display remains easily legible even in difficult light conditions. This means the new 23-inch TFT LCD is suitable not only as a screen component for current industrial control units, but also for applications that are used outdoors entirely or in part, e.g. sales and information terminals, ATMs, testing and measurement equipment and boat control systems.The particularly robust Strong2 product family has also been expanded to include a model with LED backlighting: the new 12.1-inch TFT LCD, LQ121S1LG62, is characterised not only by its extended operating temperature range of -30°C to 80°C and its mechanical robustness, but above all by its extremely long service life of up to 70,000 hours. It is therefore predestined for use in machine controls that are exposed to extremely harsh conditions.Samples of the two new LCDs with LED backlight – LQ231U1LW31 and LQ121S1LG62 – are available immediately from APC displays+.Series production is due to start in Q3 of 2009.APC displays+ offer Sharp displays from 2.5" to 52" and Sharp eSignage solutions, Sharp optoelectronics and LEDs are available through APC hero.
