CLEARWATER, Fla., 18 Feb. 2014. Small PC, a division of ICI Controls Inc. in Clearwater, Fla., is introducing the SD240ML rugged 24-inch liquid crystal display (LCD) for marine and other rugged display applications.

LED backlights that do not require cooling fans or ventilated air provide a 1000-nit luminance rating. The projective capacitive touch screen supports multi-touch input similar to the operation of a smart phone or tablet touch screen, and works with gloved hands.
