Product Announcement from General Digital Corporation

2U Flip-Up LCD Monitor/Keyboard-Image

General Digital's SlimLine Lite II™ Series is a rugged man-machine operator interface that is designed to replace the traditional CRT and keyboard with a compact, lightweight and durable alternative. The SlimLine Lite II 15.0", 17.0", 19.0" and 20.1" LCD Monitor/Keyboard/Trackball units are intended for use in commercial, industrial and military applications, either as a portable/desktop device or as a rack mounted solution.

The SL2 Series feature high contrast, wide viewing angle LCD displays that function as seamless replacements for a CRT, interfacing directly to your existing analog video graphics card. An On-screen Display (OSD) with intuitive menus allows end users to calibrate the Analog-Digital Video Interface to optimize its performance.

Physically, the SlimLine Lite II resembles a laptop computer. The LCD panel is mounted in a "display head," while the keyboard and pointing device are mounted in the main enclosure. Unlike a laptop that is housed in a plastic enclosure, the SlimLine Lite II monitors are packaged in rugged aluminum housings. The display heads pivot 115 degrees on user-adjustable friction hinges that allow users to adjust the viewing angle of the display for optimum performance. The torque on the hinges can be adjusted to suit the shock/vibration of each application.

The standard SlimLine Lite II product line is configured with an industrial PS/2-compatible, 83-key (101-key functionality), "laptop-style" keyboard and trackball pointing device (KPD). Optionally, one of several ruggedized KPDs can be specified which feature 82 keys and a sealed 1-3/8" trackball. Customers can select a commercial-grade KPD or a robust, industrial-grade, backlit KPD or a military-grade model that features red LED backlighting, EMI filters, surge protectors, shock sensing, keycap clips, and brightness control. Many KPDs meet military standards for sealing and shock/vibration.

When configured with General Digital's 19" Rack Adaptor Kit (Part No. 90-753 or 90-754), the SlimLine Lite II Series can be integrated into a standard (RETMA) 19" rack chassis. The 19" Rack Adaptor Kit features a sleeve that attaches directly to the rack chassis. A pair of roller bearing slides facilitate the installation of the devices into the sleeve, allowing them to easily slide in and out of the rack for storage and operation.
