From rack-mounted flip-up LCD monitor / keyboards to standalone enclosures to open frame monitor kits to dual display units to customized LCDs, General Digital has a long list of rugged display products that have satisfied customers in the US and foreign naval arenas.
TwoView: dual flip-up LCD monitors with integral keyboard and trackball
For environments requiring twice the average display area, General Digital offers the TwoView. Amazingly, this rack-mount unit measures only 2U (3.5 inches) high when stowed, yet accommodates two large flip-up displays (15 inches to 19 inches) and an integral mil-spec keyboard with trackball.
The rugged TwoView features a lightweight enclosure made from a combination of steel and aluminum, and a spring coil latch to keep the displays secure when stowed. It’s ready to take on the most demanding industrial or military task.
As with most of General Digital’s LCD monitors, the TwoView comes with a full-featured video controller, offering support for NTSC, SECAM, PAL, RS-170, composite, sync-on-green,S-video, and numerous other video signals. For applications not requiring a keyboard and trackball, General Digital offers the TwoView Micro, which features dual flip-down displays, and can be rack mounted as well as wall or ceiling mounted.
SlimLine Series: low-profile flip-up LCD monitors with integral keyboards and pointing devices
The SlimLine 1U and SlimLine Lite II series cleverly combine a flip-up LCD monitor, keyboard and pointing device in one unit and are the perfect complement to General Digital’s other innovative, rack-mount products. Optimized for its ultra-low profile (1.75 inches high), the SlimLine 1U is designed to save valuable rack space and expense by providing a reliable and user-friendly operator interface. It is also designed to meet industrial and MIL-STD-810E and TEMPEST Level 2 requirements.
The SlimLine Lite II measures a mere 2U (3.5 inches) high, yet is rugged enough to meet MIL-STD-810F requirements. Additionally, it can be configured with a smart card reader, which serves to streamline workflow and can be utilized as a common access card (CAC) reader.
Numerous keyboard options are available with which to configure your SlimLine Series units. Choose from commercial, industrial and military grades. Many are NEMA4 / NEMA12 sealed and meet MIL-STD-810F, MIL-STD-901D and MIL-STD-167B shock and vibration requirements. The pointing device for most keyboards is a 1-3/8 inch, durable, sealed trackball. Available keyboard-trackball interfaces are PS/2, PC and Sun USB, and Sun Type 5 (8-pin Mini DIN).
The SlimLine Series’ compact designs and industrial durability, combined with General Digital’s legendary configuration control and long product lifecycles, make them the ideal rack mount solution for network administration, telecommunications, mobile applications, and more.
Saber 901D Series: military spec LCD monitor with LED backlight
