Sunlight-Readable LCD for Kiosks and ATMs

NEC LCD Technologies is aiming a new, high-brightness 12.1-inch TFT LCD at outdoor applications such as ATMs, vending machines, and public kiosks. The model NL8060BC31-32 boasts high luminance and contrast, low surface reflectivity, and wide temperature operation (10 to +70 deg. C).

The new sunlight-readable LCD module is based on NEC's proprietary super-transmissive natural light TFT (ST-NLT) technology, which, NEC says, "enables display of vivid colors in environments with high ambient light."

The LCD modules in NEC's standard line of industrial displays are all form-fit-function compatible with each other, including outside dimensions, mounting hole positions, center-of-screen, and electrical interface. This enables the displays to be interchanged "easily," without system redesign, according to the company.

NEC says it developed the new 12.1-inch LCD module in response to the demand that followed the introduction of a similar 5.5-inch LCD module (the NL3224BC35-22), the first LCD to be equipped with its ST-NLT LCD technology.
