13-10-2022 | Review Display | Industrial

Review Display Systems introduced a 12.1" TFT display from Tianma. The new P-series NL12880BC20-32F display module provides WXGA resolution (1280 x 800 pixels), a wide 16:9 aspect ratio and provides excellent optical performance with the implementation of SFT technology.

The new series of TFT displays have been created and produced to provide excellent optical performance and satisfy the demanding needs of the industrial and medical display markets and applications where reliable and consistent operation is deemed essential.

The 12.1" display module displays outstanding optical performance with a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a high brightness, long-life LED backlight offering a brightness specification of 1100cd/m², which produces display images that are bright, colourful, and concise.

SFT technology is Tianma's implementation of IPS technology, where optical performance, colour saturation and image stability are greatly improved over standard TFT display technology – where brightness and colour will change regarding viewing angle. Viewing angles of 88 degrees in all directions (up/down, left/right) may be accomplished with SFT.

Justin Coleman, displays division manager, RDS, said, "P-series display modules from Tianma have been designed and developed for use in a wide range of human-machine interface (HMI) applications where guaranteed, long-term operation in challenging application environments is a necessity. Offering a technical specification that provides excellent optical performance, the Tianma 12.1" P-series display delivers bright, saturated colour display images that can be easily observed from all viewing directions."

The 12.1" module features mechanical outline dimensions of 277.77mm (l) x 180.6mm (w) x 9.0mm (d) and an extended operating temperature range of -30C to +80C. A 20-pin LVDS interface supports 24-bit RGB data, allowing a colour palette of up to 16.7 million.

The new display module is ideal for various industries, including construction, agriculture, medical, factory automation, manufacturing, and in-vehicle systems.
