With 45 years' experience in display, touch and embedded technology, DATA MODUL is the visual-solutions specialist for high-quality and demand-driven complete solutions in the medical industry today. Having recently received ISO 13485 certification, the company is able to meet the complex requirements of the medical industry.
Medical human machine interface (HMI) products fall within DATA MODUL's display, touch, embedded and monitor solutions key competencies. Design is becoming increasingly important as well, alongside high-performance functionality. The Munich-based display specialist accompanies the entire product life cycle, from the product idea to development, production and product-related services.
The ultrathin 18.5in monitor (EP185WAD152-1-PCAP-U-DM) underlines DATA MODUL's expertise in complete solutions with its extremely slim casing. The company produces this design highlight in series and takes on the life-cycle management for more than five years. The closed casing was developed to comply with quality certification and made the grade during in-house testing (EMC chamber).
The standard version has open-frame housing with a VESA 100×75mm bracket on the back and black metal casing; the colour can be customised on request. The closed cover glass on the front, made of thermally hardened and anti-reflective 3mm float glass with ceramic printing, is stuck on at DATA MODUL using an OCA process and then hardened in autoclaves under specific air-pressure and temperature conditions.
The monitor uses a long-term available Sharp full-HD TFT display in 16:9 format and backlight with 400cd/m². It has a minimum LED backlight lasting 50,000 hours and the constant viewing angle of 85° from all directions conforms to medical requirements. The typically high contrast of 1,500:1 guarantees a great black balance and is therefore also suitable for greyscale images.
The 18.5in easyTOUCH PCAP sensor is optimised for operating applications in a clinical environment and can be used while wearing multilayered gloves in all standard materials. Liquids on the surface do not impair the touch function - the reliable and user-friendly HMI operation remains intact.
The monitor surface is easy to clean and not sensitive to disinfectants. The panel therefore complies with the hygiene requirements in clinical and medical environments.
The integrated LCD ST5:3 controller board from DATA MODUL's eMotion series supports DisplayPort 1.1a. The monitor uses a 12V DC power supply. Operation temperature is 0-40°C, while storage temperature ranges from -20 to +60°C.
Upon request, the monitor can be upgraded to a panel PC by integrating embedded solutions. With its OEM design services, DATA MODUL is able to modify the final equipment to the customer's specific requirements. The option of own-branding is a deciding factor for industrial customers too, as DATA MODUL does not present itself with its own logo. Adaptation to other diagonals as standard is also being planned.
DATA MODUL's display portfolio offers medical customers an almost unlimited basis for the development and series production of a modern display unit, equipping its monitors and panel PCs with in-house-developed easyTOUCH PCAP sensors and multitouch function.
The company's display portfolio is the most extensive of its kind, with its expertise in optical bonding, selection of cover glasses and proficiency in system integration offering customers countless possibilities when developing a high-performing and customised product.
