TFT module simplifies upgrading from mono to colour displays

05-05-2015 | Anders | Subs & Systems

Upgrading from character modules to colour TFT displays just became a whole lot easier with the announcement by AndersDX that it will customise its QVGA colour TFT module to fit into front panel slots designed for popular character modules. The company can customise and adapt the module to fit into the existing case aperture, designing a bezel or housing to create a perfect fit. They will also supply an interface PCB designed to minimise the redesign of the electrical interface. The QVGA module can be adapted to fit apertures designed for most character modules between 128 x 64 or 240 x 128 pixel formats. Paul Hooper, European sales manager, AndersDX, said: “Customised colour graphics modules offer a very economical alternative to designers who want to update the front panel without mechanical redesign. We do the hard work, so that all the customer needs to do is think about the content on the display. This can be kept simple to minimise programming effort, or be more advanced making full use of the graphics features of this module.” Further options include adding resistive touch control for example. They feature an anti-glare film as standard, and can be optionally supplied with scratch resistant or anti-reflective coatings. The 2.8-inch QVGA modules are also available with backlight enhancement. To replace character modules of different sizes, the company offers a semi-custom service. Colour graphics TFT displays on a 4.3-inch and 2.8-inch diagonal can be cut to a specified height to suit the front panel aperture.
