Datalux Corporation introduces the new XG12 series of 12.1-inch LCD monitors, featuring a die-cast aluminum enclosure, XGA resolution (1024x768), protected LCD panel, locking power connector and optionally, a choice of either serial or USB resistive touch screen. Like all Datalux products, the XG12 series was engineered for very demanding environments.
The new product line includes two versions – the bright XG12 with a 380 cd/m2 display and the daylight viewable XG12i with a 1000 cd/m2 display. The XG12i can easily be viewed in a vehicle in bright daylight and is about 4 times brighter than most desktop LCD displays or notebook computers.
The new Datalux XG12 monitors are fully capable of being used in many applications including industrial environments, financial industry applications, electronics manufacturing, medical equipment, security, heavy equipment or embedded into other machinery. The XG12 series was developed to be used with a wide range of power inputs found in industrial and vehicular environments. Designed to interface with almost any computer system, the XG12 and XG12i can also be used with the full range of Datalux computers and keyboards.
The XG12 series of monitors is sealed (designed for a minimum IP54 rating) to prevent penetration of dust or other contaminants from the surrounding environment from entering; the monitor is easily cleaned with standard cleaners. Featuring a sealed front panel control for precise dimming, backlight control and power, the Datalux XG12 series offers optional touch-screen capability, providing easy interface with the user's software.
When ordered with a USB touch screen interface, the XG12 and XG12i monitors also provide integrated stereo speakers and a USB 2.0 port on the monitor. The speakers are sealed with a special membrane designed to prevent moisture ingress. (The USB port and speakers are not available with the serial touch interface version of the XG12 which is available to support older video monitor applications.)
The new XG12 series accepts a wide range of input voltages from 8 to 18 volts DC, and provides special power conditioning features accommodations to allow the use of 12 volt DC vehicular power.
"Our new XG12 monitor is rugged enough for use in most industrial and vehicular conditions and versatile enough to support a variety of applications and can be easily mounted where you need it," said Gary Davis, Datalux corporate director of sales and marketing. "The XG12 is VESA 75mm mount compatible, allowing use of many industry standard VESA mounting solutions." Datalux also manufactures several mounting solutions for the new monitor including a desk mount and swing arm mount.
