New from Relec – IPS TFT displays

Relec Electronics is pleased to announce the introduction of a full range of IPS (In-Plane Switching) TFT displays in the most popular industry sizes. John Stone, sales director explains: “we start at 2” with full coverage through to 15.6”. We’ve also included 2 bespoke portrait displays in 3.5” and 5” options.”

IPS (In-Plane Switching) was designed to solve the main limitation with conventional TN TFT displays of restricted viewing angles and grey scale inversion when viewed away from the preferred viewing direction. IPS TFT displays provide true viewing angles from any direction. The technology involves arranging and switching the alignment of the crystal molecules between the glass substrates. This change reduces the amount of light scattered in the matrix.

The features and benefits of Relec’s IPS TFT displays include:

• Perfect colour balance from every point

• Significantly improved contrast ratios

• Perfect viewing from all angles

• Black mode operation (pixels dark by default rather than bright)

• High brightness options available from 1000 cd/m2

• Standard operation in portrait or landscape mode

Samples are available on a 3 – 4 week lead-time and the products are no more expensive than standard TN technology TFT displays.

Relec Electronics turns 40 at the end of this year and whilst there have been many changes in our turbulent industry, the company has tried to maintain the same ideals we had back in 1978” comments John.

Born from an aerospace background, we have maintained our company ethos focussing on supplying the best and most suitable products for our customers’ applications. We were one of the first suppliers to achieve ISO9002 recognition in 1991. Our small team have outstanding technical knowledge and we work alongside engineers to get results: customers ask for help, we will find the answer.

Our mantra, “Standard is just the beginning” is intended to get across the idea that we are far more than just a distributor of power supplies and displays. We go the extra mile to ensure that the products we supply are the right ones for your application. Our experience in power and displays is second to none and we are always happy to offer advice and expertise.

We work closely with our suppliers, influencing the decisions they make in terms of product development and changes. They are as committed as we are to ensure our solutions are the right ones for you. If a standard product does not meet your requirements, we will work with the engineers to supply variants or full custom solutions.”

John concludes; “please don’t just take the products you find on our website as our only offer. We want to hear from you at the earliest possible stage of your project with all its intricacies and nuances. Think of Relec as your power or display consultancy.

While the world has changed immeasurably in 40 years, Relec remains, changing, growing and responding to the times and looking forward to the next 40 years, just the same as you are.”
