Barco : 17 June, 2008  (New Product)
Extreme environments pose no problems for the TX-243 rugged touch screen display system from Barco for use in armoured vehicles
Barco introduces the TX-243 as the first of a new series of displays for armoured vehicles. Barco's TX display series offers the latest proven technologies for rugged touch screen, NVIS capability, sunlight readability, and thermal management making the TX suitable for the most extreme armoured vehicle applications in the harshest environments. Innovative field proven designs have now evolved into the TX series creating state-of-the-art mission-critical display solutions for armoured vehicle applications.

Barco's TX is a fully optioned display series offering the best performance and best value for the harshest environments. Following the introduction of the 17in TX-243, 12in and 15in solutions will soon be available as well. Each product in Barco's TX display series offers a rugged touch screen, sunlight readability, NVIS compliance, low dimming, and programmable bezel buttons as standard features that are fully integrated into the product design. Barco has designed its TX range as a fully sealed solution with an innovative, patented thermal management system making the displays suitable for use across the widest temperature ranges in the harshest environmental conditions. The TX series will provide cold start performance at -46C as well as operation at +71C. The TX series will also maintain its functional and EMI/EMC performance while meeting all common military specifications for severe environments such as humidity, sand, salt, dust, and fog.

Barco's TX display series features a rugged analogue resistive touch screen technology that provides high touch accuracy while maintaining the environmental integrity of the display. Barco perfected this technology to minimise humidity effects, minimise optical reflection, and provide a scratch-resistant screen surface. The TX display's touch screen technology operates with finger tips, gloves, or stylus. The TX display series also features a high bright LED backlight technology providing operators with exceptional image performance in high ambient light conditions. The performance of Barco's LED backlight technology has been proven successful in the most extreme armoured vehicle conditions.

With the combination of its innovative technologies, standard features, and extreme environmental performance, the TX displays series provides superb value for a wide variety of armoured vehicle applications including system control, battlefield management, fire control, driver's view enhancement, and local situational awareness.

The TX displays have been designed in accordance with MIL-STD-3009 and MIL-L-85762.
