Aadaptiv R&D programme leads to design breakthrough
Since its first marine project a year ago Aadaptiv's on-going R&D programme has resulted in the development of an innovative new technology which utilises a composite laminated glass with special heat absorbing plastic filters. This dramatically reduces UV and IR radiation effects, whilst providing high transmission levels. The heat management properties are ideally suited to screens which are submitted to extreme conditions, making Aadaptiv LCD Monitors suitable for marine applications.
Aadaptiv's new technology addresses the issue of ultraviolet radiation bleaching out colours, and the negative effect of heat producing infrared radiation on the liquid crystals and components of the display. The major benefit is a more prolonged process for the display to heat up under direct sunlight thus resulting in higher reliability and overall product longevity. This new laminated safety glass is unbreakable and splinter-free according to EN 12543 and the monitor performance is enhanced by increased impact resistance.
"This is the type of design breakthrough that makes it all worthwhile and I am delighted to be working with such an innovative and creative team of engineers", said Gary Wright, president and CEO of Aadaptiv Technologies.
All future Aadaptiv's Outdoor Sunlight monitors will have this technology incorporated, placing the range firmly at the forefront of screen design.
