CP Systems, a leader in providing rugged rackmount systems to the military and other challenging markets, offers the CCX-17 and CCX-19 Military Grade 1U Rackmount LCD Keyboard drawers for use in adverse environments. These products are designed and manufactured in the USA.
"We wanted to demonstrate the ruggedness, applicability, and quality of these displays by subjecting them to the full spectrum of 810G testing." said Marc DeMatteo, President of CP Systems. "We've seen our competition claiming 810G compliance, but they've usually only tested to part of the spec, most often the loose cargo section. We wanted to prove how tough our display is by testing against the full 810G specification and the CCX passed all tests with flying colors."
The displays are 17- or 19-inch TFT LCDs providing 1280x1024 resolution. A contrast enhancing glass Anti-Reflective (AR) filter is bonded to the LCD for superior contrast in high bright environments. A separate bonded layer provides an ITR EMI filter across the face of the display. Three military grade Genesis LCD controllers are available providing a mix of features with aRGB VGA, DVI-D, DVI-D and video inputs. Picture-In-Picture is supported in one of the controllers. The controllers are conformal coated for environmental and shock/vibration protection and support operating temperatures of -40 to +80 Deg C.
The silicon rubber keyboard provides full travel with tactile feedback for ease of typing. The keyboard is sealed to NEMA-4 / IP65 standards and is spill proof, important in the field where Coke and coffee are routinely spilled on these in use. A sealed pointing device is built into the keyboard. A wrist pad is provided to make typing more comfortable.
Construction is of 5052-H32 aluminum alloy. The front panel is milled from a solid 1/4" billet for strength. Fasteners are stainless steel and thread into self locking nuts. The front handle folds to protect the user and captive screws hold the unit closed in the rack. The unit is 24.4-inches deep including the provided cable management arm. Rugged friction slides are provided. Friction slides were selected as more rugged than ball bearing slides and less prone to jamming due to dust and dirt in the balls. The systems are designed to meet 901D and have passed extensive 810G testing. The 810G test report is available at http://www.chassis-
A family of rugged KVMs are available providing 4 and 8 ports of DVI-D or VGA inputs with USB and PS/2 keyboard/mouse connection. Tempest qualified KVMs can be provided for Red/Black signal separation.
Native power is +12VDC and a rack mount 110/220VAC supply is provided. Options are available for a vehicular 12VDC transient filter, Mil-Std-704/
