It is available in multipair and multiconductor configurations and foil-shielded for EMI protection and improved signal integrity.
GDS Displays now offers a 38 inch LCD for outdoor applications such as next train indicators. An ambient light sensor continuously adjusts brightness for comfortable viewing, and optical bonding of vandal-proof glass directly to the LCD eliminates back-of-glass reflection and condensation.
