The Japanese electronics component maker Mitsubishi Electric launched a new Tough Series TFT-LCD modules, a WVGA model for wide-ranging applications in construction, agricultural vehicles, factories and more.
The 7.0-inch and 8.0-inch module versions offer vibration resistance up to 6.8Gs, seven times that of conventional modules and operating temperature range of -40 to 85 degrees Celsius. The viewing angle is also significantly better with super-wide 170-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles. These LCD modules are expected to be available from the end of March month of 2017.

The new module is designed to meet the demand of rugged TFT-LCDs withstanding extreme temperatures and strong vibrations.
The detailed product features and specifications as provided by the Mitsubishi in its release includes:
1) High vibration resistance for construction and agricultural applications - High vibration resistance of 6.8Gs, seven times that (1.0G) of conventional products, is suitable for equipment subject to strong shocks, such as construction, agricultural vehicles and factory-automation machines
2) Durability for extreme outdoor environments - Market-leading operating temperature range of -40 to 85 degrees Celsius, compared to -30 to 80 degrees Celsius for conventional products, suitable for outdoors and in vehicles used in extreme environments
3) Super-wide viewing angles, high brightness and contrast ratio - Super-wide viewing angles of 170 degrees, both horizontally and vertically, ensure excellent visibility for off-center installations
- High brightness of 1,100/1,000cd/m2 and high contrast ratio of 1000:1 for easy visibility in bright environments
