CDS releases an exploded-view animated video for its ruggedised custom monitors

07 January 2021

CDS has announced the release of its new animated video which shows a “behind the framework” scenes of its example custom-designed ruggedised monitor, using a real-life example.

Crystal Display Systems LTD believes that every engineer should have the chance to custom design their own monitor, and therefore offer customers a one-stop-shop for design builds. Its custom-designed monitor service offers engineers within military, aerospace, transport, outdoor and many other industries and markets a new way to develop an idealised display product from a concept built on exact requirements, through to a realised production-ready item. 

“This was an exciting and challenging project, built in close collaboration with the client, based on a detailed scope and a targeted budget. The challenges included building a system, that met the requirements of this scope whilst also keeping to a budget to make the system viable in the application. The system was built to budget and delivered on time,” says Tony Large, Technical Director at Crystal Display Systems LTD. 

Features and benefits of the CDS custom monitor service include:

• A clear picture – agreed upon scope, budget, delivery schedules etc. before the project begins

• Reduced time to market with rapid prototypes 

• Full support – stock holding to meet customer needs and complete after-sales support with the RMA process.

The example used in this animation is an engineered semi-outdoor display system for use in a digital information application.

The advanced system includes an integrated industrial PC, an electronic sensor system for monitoring system health and performance, as well as an intelligent heating system.

Built-in sensors adjust the display in ambient light; there is also backlight monitoring as well as shock, moisture, and temperature measurement.

This display is high brightness, with 1000cd backlight, optically bonded to vandal resistance 6mm glass, giving excellent visibility in outdoor environments.

The mechanical construction includes a first-level access panel for in-field service.

Also included are a high-end dual-band 4G router and puck antenna for remote connection to the client’s data service.

The system has been designed and tested by the CDS Tech Team to IP65 water/dust resistance, and CE certified.
