Meeting military standards such as 901E and 810G for ruggedization, its 5052-H32 aluminum construction and locking stainless steel hardware make the display inherently rugged and reliable for both military and industrial harsh environment applications.

“If customers have a rugged computer requirement, they will also need a rugged LCD,” says Mike McCormack, CEO of Chassis Plans. “We have mounted these types of products in a wide range of shipboard, land based and aircraft types of applications. These products are generally purchased by defense prime contractors (Lockheed, Northrop, Raytheon) and integrated into their products which ultimately end up in products sold directly to the military. Applications include test and simulation, telemetry, persistent surveillance, UAV ground control, etc.”

The CLX offers two LCD screen sizes: the standard 19” display offering a native 1280 x 1024 resolution or a 17.3” wide screen display offering a 1920 x 1080 native resolution.
