Original Press Release
Erg's New Smart Kit(TM) Development Kits Provide Everything Needed to Evaluate OEM Led-Backlit LCDS
Press release date: August 13, 2009
Each Smart Kit is designed for a specific LED-backlit LCD from a major OEM. Included are:
o The appropriate ERG LED Driver card
o Flying lead input harness
o DigitalView® to ERG plug-and-play input harness
o Direct mate LED Driver-to-LCD interconnect wiring harness (where applicable)
All Smart Kit components are shipped in an 8.5" x 5" polyethylene bag labeled with the manufacturer and model number of the LCD panel, the ERG LED Driver card part number, and the part numbers for the input harness, DV harness and, where applicable, interconnect wiring harness.
Currently, ERG is shipping 11 different Smart Kits for LED-backlit panels in popular industrial sizes from NEC, Sharp and Optrex with more in the works, including kits for Kyocera, according to Corporate Distribution Manager, GMS Bill Abbott.
"All parts are used except, usually, for an input harness," he said. "Two harness models are included with each kit but only one is required based on the controller being used. Digital View users have a plug-and-play option. Where non-DV controller cards are being used or where a separate power supply is located away from the controller card, customers will use the flying lead option. It is one or the other. We cover the spectrum by including both, so there is no chance the user won't have all the components he needs to get the LCD backlight operational."
Smart Kits(TM) are available for purchase from ERG at an average cost of $99.95 each in quantities from 1-9, with discounted pricing for quantities of 10 or more.
