The TFX1-19 is a rugged military grade high performance 2U rackmount LCD panel display offering three 19-inch TFT LCD displays with per panel resolution of 1280x1024. Display options include a bonded anti-reflective glass cover and a bonded ITO EMI filter. The system is built to military standards and includes a military grade wide temperature range LCD controller and other components.


The TFX1-19 family is designed to meet Mil-S-901D and MIL-STD-810G and includes solid and lightweight 5052-H32 aluminum construction and locking stainless hardware throughout.


The 19-inch displays offer 1280x1024 native resolution (3840x1024 effective). The Pixel Pitch for the display is .294 x .294mm. The LED backlights are rated for 100,000 hour life. The display offers 16.7 million colors (True Color).


Two displays are offered. A high temperature display offers -20 to +70deg C operation. A second display option provides for 0 to +50deg C operation and is provided with an anti-glare hard coat.


The extended temperature high bright LCD panel provides LED backlighting, high bright 1500nit brightness, 800:1 native contrast, and 80 degree viewing angle.


The high temperature display offers options for a bonded ITO EMI filter and an additional glass overlay with sputtered antireflective (AR) coating. The glass is optically bonded to the front of the display for superior viewing and ruggedness. A 3mm copper bus bar around the entire glass stack-up provides effective EMI grounding. The contrast is significantly enhanced with this Anti Reflective glass stack-up in high bright environments.


The TFX1-19 provides a high quality mil grade advanced scaling controller with a Genesis chipset. The rugged LCD controller offers inputs for most common inputs including aRGB, DVI-D, HDMI, Composite video and NTSC/PAL/SECAM video. This is a specifically ruggedized controller offering as standard conformal coating with high shock/vibration and temperature extreme tolerances.


The system supports full screen image expansion, on-screen PIP (Picture in Picture), Picture by Picture, and image marker. Rounding out the display features is an infrared control and serial panel control including on-screen text overlay generation for each panel.


Included standard is a built-in 2 watt stereo amplifier and two speakers. The speakers are located at the front of the display.


The TFX1-19 is primarily designed for rugged Military applications but can be used in Industrial, Commercial, or Broadcast applications where reliability, quality and long program life availability preclude the use of cheaply made imported units.


As with all Chassis Plans products, a wide variety of custom options can be configured per customer or application specific requirements. Contact your Sales Engineer to discuss your particular requirements.


Power Options
The basic display operates from 12VDC. An EMI filter is included inside the display assembly.

The standard option is a 110/220VAC 50/60Hz supply. Options are available for a 12VDC transient filter to allow reliable operation from vehicular 12VDC systems, MIL-STD 704/1275 28VDC supply, and a 48VDC supply.

Included with each supply is a rack mount bracket allowing secure mounting of the supplies in any standard rack.


Chassis Plans rugged computer systems provide a power connection on the rear panel which can be used to power this LCD system. This eliminates the external power brick for a much cleaner installation. In addidion, the redundant power supply in the computer provides redundant power to the LCD.
