Rugged 17-inch sunlight-readable display for aircraft and ships introduced by TRU-Vu

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., 25 March 2013. TRU-Vu Monitors Inc. in Arlington Heights, Ill., is introducing the ARM-17S 17-inch industrial-grade sunlight-readable display for applications such as aircraft, ships, and surveillance equipment where video image visibility in direct sunlight is crucial.

The monitor has 1,000 nits of brightness; it will produce vivid color images even with bright sunlight falling directly onto the screen, company officials say.

The ARM-17S sunlight-readable monitors offer 1280-by-1024-pixel resolution; VGA, S-Video and Composite (BNC) video inputs; NTSC/PAL auto-recognition; 1,000:1 contrast ratio; and 3-millisecond response time.

The monitors also have internal speakers, an AC power adapter, rear VESA mount hole pattern, and a tabletop base. Applications include aircraft and helicopters, boats and ships, navigation equipment, portable surveillance systems, agricultural equipment, oil drilling platforms, industrial manufacturing, cranes, and pipeline inspection systems.

The standard ARM-17S has an ABS enclosure, and is available in a powder-coated steel enclosure, open-frame or touch-screen configuration.
