The new display features AC or DC power (self-sensing, with priority for AC) and graduated dimming for differing lighting conditions, in addition to being waterproof to IP65.
It also features various interface options including DVI-I (analogue and digital), VGA, Composite Video and S-Video, and joins the existing range of North Invent Sea Line MK3 displays, available in a selection of different sizes.
The 19-inch Sea Line MK3 LED display is EN60945 approved, and North Invent says that type approval for ECDIS and radar use from the major classification societies is pending and expected before April 2012.
“LED technology enables better performance in terms of brightness so our new 19-inch Sea Line MK3 (LED) display offers excellent viewing clarity,” said Søren Refsgaard, international sales manager, North Invent.
“Reliability and operational life expectancy have also been improved because LED displays use fewer components. Based on these benefits we have chosen to introduce LED versions of our most popular sizes first, but we plan to offer this technology throughout the Sea Line MK3 range in the future.”
