Pacer provided this custom rugged outdoor display for a railway application. As part of a health and safety-led upgrade, our client required a weather-proof monitor to be used on engineering trains – trains with one or more rail cars intended for internal non-revenue use. The unit was used to locate personnel and ensure they were aware of, or away from, any dangerous activity.
Requirements for the display included:
- The screen had to be sunlight readable and capable of withstanding an extremely wide temperature range (-30 to +85 deg C was achieved in this case)
- Zero condensation and a damage resistant screen assembly using an optically bonded protective window and anti-reflective film
- Custom interfacing and cable set
- Upgraded video electronics
- Wide input voltage range
Pacer supplied a complete custom rugged outdoor display, plus an additional slave monitor for in-cab use which shared some of the above features. Our displays team worked closely with the client to ensure all aspects of the specification were satisfied. In demanding environments such as this, experience of designing robust systems is crucially important.
Having an extensive range of products and suppliers from which to specify a solution proved a real advantage. Click here to visit our Displays & Embedded webpages and find out more about the range of products available.
