Model by model, we have been transitioning from traditional CCFL backlights over the past few years, and we are happy to announce that we are now using LED backlighting in all Hope Industrial Systems monitors and touch screens except for our 20″ models, which will be converted later this year.
LEDs have a number of advantages over traditional CCFLs, particularly when used in factory floor applications. LED backlights are lighter, slimmer, and because they are mercury free, create less environmental pollution on disposal.
Other benefits of LED backlights include:
- Cooler running – using less power, generating less heat, and lasting longer
- Higher resistance to mechanical shock and vibration – a must-have in many factories
- Able to withstand lower temperatures – ideal for food and pharmaceutical industry uses
- Maintain brightness longer – even when powered on 24/7
- Power on instantly – especially useful in mission critical applications
