A3RD Range

IRTS launched in 2016 a wide range of VGA/DVI rugged & ultra-rugged Displays A3RD family. The A3RD screens use the same display & HMI technologies as the rugged & ultra- rugged A3R Panel PCs and are also mainly designed for Military and Industry market. These rugged displays can be linked with any type of rugged calculators such as IRTS A4RK /A3RK to make split configurations or they can be linked with IRTS A3R Panel Pcs to make twin screen configurations.

IRTS launched in 2016 a wide range of VGA/DVI rugged & ultra-rugged Displays A3RD family.

Based on 6 screen sizes, A3RD displays range features outstanding configured COTS products defined as SKUs - Stock Keeping Units -.  In a context of a dual approach, these SKUs has been qualified at 2 levels of ruggedization according to the generic requirements of Military and Industry worldwide markets. In the military field, A3RD ranges have been declined in 3 domains to meet the specific Navy, Army and Airborne international standards. 

IRTS is a build to order company. A3RD production scheme responds either to one shot customers’ orders or to customer long-term programs. In that case the product’s life cycle is managed by IRTS who is able to propose contract-management services to manufacture and repair the products over a long-period of time – over 12/15 years.

SCREEN SIZE & READABILITY, RESOLUTION, LUMINANCE AND NVIS

With resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 WUXGA, the 6 A3RD LCD panels benefit from the widest viewing angles and the highest contrast ratios combined to comfortable indoor levels of brightness (250 à 400 cd/m²).

Higher luminance levels up to 700 cd/m² are available for outdoor applications. 

A3RD Displays intended for high luminosity indoor or outdoor use, implement front glass bonding technology on the LCD panel, which drastically improves screen readability. 

IRTS’ advice to reach high screen readability

Selecting a standard LCD panel is an efficient design-to-cost strategy that implements 700 cd/m² and bonding technologies. It enables high readability in the brightest environments, which matches 90% of operational uses.

However, it is possible to increase a panel’s luminance if the LED backlight is enhanced for SXGA, UXGA A3RD. For other resolutions, on customer’s request, IRTS is able to offer such a service or even to develop a high brightness backlight that will meet your specific needs. 

Custom designs: other screen sizes

Other screen sizes can be proposed to meet customers' requirements: configuration implementing 18”5 FHD screen size can be easily designed and manufactured.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for other screen sizes. 

NVIS monitor capabilities.

IRTS is capable to offer night-vision MIL 3009 compliant solutions for its A3RD panels range.

MMI, TOUCHSCREEN & FRONT BUTTONS

Every device in the A3RD series is equipped with non-reflective glass, control panel and optional touch-sensitive glass. 

Control panel master basic functions such as on/off, brightness control, black out, supervision lightning. 

IRTS offers two touch-sensitive screen options according to customer’s needs in terms of single or multi-touch technology:

  • Single touch: IRTS’ standard.
    A3RD implements glass to glass technology that offers many advantages such as water resistance, scratch resistance, reliability, use of gloves.
  • Multi-touch: IRTS’ optional.
    For multi-touch requirements, IRTS proposes capacitive technology which can be operated with gloves. 

As option, function panel buttons keyboard can be proposed (dome switch keyboard technology with/without backlighting). 

For further technical information, please, contact us.

INTEGRATED EMBEDDED VIDEO CONTROLLER & BITE

A3RD integrated video controller offer a basic configuration with:

  • 1 x input VGA
  • 1 x input DVI-D
  • 1 x serial port for remote control
  • 1 x USB 2.0 for remote control 

As option, IRTS can propose:

  • 2 x inputs DVI-D
  • 1 x additional coaxial composite PAL/NTSC input
  • 1 x serial or USB 2.0 touch controller
  • 1 x USB 2.0 connection transfer from CPU to A3RD front panel connector
  • 1 x additional HD-SDI input

IRTS’ QT 5.0 based multi-platform library is available to our customers, which enables them to use monitoring data that can be easily integrated into their applications software. 

PBIT & CBIT tests available through this library allow triggering an alarm if the system defaults; faults coverage rate is therefore high. 

Our Unit Management System – UMS – performs IBIT tests, confirms faults and refines diagnoses. 

MOUNTING

A3RD mounting need 4x M8-type screws. 

Basically, the back side of the A3RD packaging offers threaded holes for 4 x M8-screws. This means of fastening is a mechanical invariant which does not depend on the screen size. This point is a real advantage for manufacturers of consoles and other screen portage devices. 

Standard front mounting can be realized by fastening of 4 x M8-captive screws positioned at each front corner of the product, finished by trim screws. Please, note that the threaded holes for 4 x M8-screws are always available on the back sides of the A3RD packaging

Optional rear mounting can be realized by using threaded holes for 4 x M8-screws positioned at each rear corner of the product. Please, note that the threaded holes for 4 x M8-screws are always available on the back sides of the A3RD packaging

To ease the best comprehension of your need, please note that the A3RD commercial reference should indicate the way of mounting:

A3RD CONFIGURATION - A3RD LIFE CYCLE MANAGEMENT - FFF STRATEGY

A3RD rugged displays series has been launched since 2016. A 2nd generation – A3RD MK2 - should be introduced in 2020/2022 in the context of IRTS FFF - Fit Form & Function - strategy, to ease the obsolescence of components and introduce new functionalities. 

IRTS has identified Stock Keeping Units - SKUs -for the 6 available screen sizes - 17’’, 19’’, 20’’, 21’’ HD, 24” HD and 24” W. These SKUs have been qualified to match two ruggedization levels of our qualification benchmark:

  • Level I – Rugged up to 3g RMS (random vibrations)
  • Level II – Ultra-Rugged up to 6g RMS (random vibrations) 

Though IRTS offers a pre-qualified technology, the customer shall select its own configuration based on the available options:

  • Single or Multi-touch sensitive screen options
  • Night vision imaging system capacity – NVIS – of the screen
  • Buttons on the monitor’s bezel 

Once options have been selected - or not - the A3RD device can undergo a qualification process that matches customer’s requirements. 

Qualification on customer’s specification is chargeable to the customer. Following this qualification process the A3R become a customer’s product.

Contractual agreements shall still be made with IRTS in terms of:

  • Delivery planning – schedule of orders or renewed multiannual orders,
  • Production expectations - FFF production or production with strictly identical BOM at the component level which entail the customer to finance component obsolescence management and stock process.
  • After-sales services - repairs, maintenance and MRO,
  • Life cycle management of the customer’s product
