Relec Electronics carves a niche with a 21.5” touchscreen from FutureLabs. The rugged screen is designed for harsh outside environments, as well as mobile applications.

Designed for use in harsh conditions, Relec Electronics introduces FutureLabs’ FLC-215 series of 21.5” TFT displays – available with or without PCAP (projected capacitance) touchscreens – to the UK market.

The FLC-215 series has an industry-leading operating temperature range of -20°C to +80°C, perfect for applications in challenging environments.

The FLC-215 series has a 21.5” screen size and a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.  Units can be supplied with brightness levels up to 1000CD/m2.

The In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology is designed to solve the main limitation with conventional TN TFTs: restricted viewing angles and greyscale inversion when viewed away from the preferred viewing direction. IPS technology arranges and switches the alignment of the crystal molecules between the display’s glass substrates to reduce the amount of light scattered in the matrix to ensure true viewing angles from any direction.

In addition to perfect colour balance from every point, IPS technology also allows the LCD to be mounted in either landscape or portrait orientation.

The FLC-215 series displays also have an impressive contrast ratio of 5000:1 (max), making them ideal for outdoor installations and for use where there are very high ambient light levels, such as marine applications.

Futurelabs can also add a PCAP touchscreen to the display, with a range of options including optical bonding, anti-reflective polarisers and anti-bacterial treatments. For further customisation, a rugged cover glass, up to 6.0 mm thick, can be added and the operating software can be fine-tuned to meet an application’s specific needs.
