EIZO rugged monitorEIZO Rugged Solutions has expanded its range of rugged COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) LCD monitors with three new models – the Talon RGD3202W (32-inch), RGD2802 (28-inch), and RGD2102W (21.5-inch). The monitors are ideal for military-grade unmanned systems applications such as UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) ground control stations (GCS) and USV (unmanned surface vessel) control centres.

The monitors are designed for deployment in extreme environments, with ruggedized features such as optional sunlight readability and built-in heaters, water resistance to IP65, and conformal coating to protect components. They are tested for vibration, shock, altitude, and extreme temperatures to comply with MIL-STD-810 and MIL-STD-461.

The RGD3202W is a 32-inch model with 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution for displaying highly detailed rugged applications in full across a spacious screen. It also supports simultaneous display from more than one input so multiple applications can be viewed on a single screen, providing operators with a centralized view of important information.

The RGD2802 is a 28-inch square model with 2K x 2K (2048 x 2048) resolution. It is ideal for military and UAV control centers for displaying radar and other high-resolution visual data. The square format and customizable housing allow it to be easily adapted to existing consoles.

The RGD2102W is a 21.5-inch, Full HD (1920 x 1080) model with optional NVIS (Night Vision Imaging System) support for environments using night vision equipment. EIZO carries out the production process for NVIS support in-house, including the measurement and adjustment of NVIS display characteristics for every unit, and complies with MIL-STD-3009. NVIS support is also available as an option for other Talon rugged monitors.

All Talon monitors can be custom-built to specific user requirements, with options for LED backlight customization, projected capacitive (PCAP) and analog resistive touchscreen options, custom housing, image enhancement technology, optical bonding, increased temperature endurance, and more. Possible communications interfaces include 3G-SDI, DisplayPort, D-Sub, DVI, HDMI, RGB, USB, and serial communication.

Each unit is designed, manufactured, and tested in-house by expert EIZO engineers. This includes the monitor’s main controller board and other circuitry, LCD unit, optical bonding, housing, and more, and provides full control of the production process from development onward to ensure quality, minimize delivery lead time, and provide extended lifecycle support.
