In order to meet the growing demands for larger widescreen display monitors in naval applications, VarTech Systems Inc. has engineered the VT190RWP2; a 16:10, 7U, rack mount monitor with a stunning WXGA (1440 X 900) resolution display that is fully compatible with most marine electronics and computers. The VT190RWP2, which has a 0 to 50C operating temperature, consists of a 250 nits brightness LCD flat panel with an external, manual, full range dimming dial allowing for fluent 0 to 100 percent display illumination. In addition, the new marine grade display’s LCD flat panel comes standard with VarTech Systems' "VBond" optical bonding. This adds to the durability of the LCD screen while reducing solar reflectivity. These features make the VT190RWP2 a valuable addition to any sea vessel’s open cockpit or control room where there is a high degree of ambient outdoor lighting as well as night time conditions when less brightness is needed.
The marine grade VT190RWP2 display monitor’s mounting provisions include pass-through holes for easy installation into any console along with rugged front handles granting easy placement and retrieval during installs and/or removal. The monitor’s rugged black-powder coated aluminum front bezel increases its resistance to corrosion from harsh elements such as splashing salt and fresh water, mud, dirt and debris. The VT190RWP2 can be configured optionally with either resistive or capacitive touch screens, integrating well into marine computer systems and eliminating the need for a mouse and keyboard. Another testament to this marine grade monitor’s versatility is its optional power supply sources which can include either 12VDC or 9 – 36VDC.
The VT190RWP2 widescreen marine monitor can be used in a number of maritime environments and workflows. It can serve in sonar and underwater imaging, radar for vessel navigation, open cockpits, camera and video systems, fly bridges, pilot houses and cabins.
