Roadwater's Innovative Vehicle LCD Display Model RWD080M Selected by Primetech Ltd. for Use in Its Fire Service Thermal Imaging Camera System

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Primetech (UK) Ltd. has selected Roadwater's vehicle display model RWD080M for use in its Fire Service Thermal Imaging camera system.

The display is used as part of a Fire Truck Thermal Imaging camera integrated into the Bronto Skylift boom ladder control system. The display allows the boom operator to see what the thermal imaging camera sees 40 meters up. The boom control station is open to the environment and the system is exposed to wet dirty conditions as well as extreme heat and cold. The display must operate reliably in this harsh outdoor environment as well as be clearly visible for direct sunlight and daylight viewing.

The RWD080M 8" Vehicle LCD display is specifically designed for mobile public safety and public security applications that include fire trucks, police marine units and coast guard installations. The unit is sealed to water, dirt and dust and includes an optically enhanced high bright LCD using low-power LED backlights.

Robert Vance, Roadwater's engineering manager, says, "The RWD080M is ideal for vehicle applications that require a rugged all-weather LCD display; it is a waterproof and sunlight readable solution designed to survive the rigors of outdoor operation."

Standard configurations of the RWD080M include a 600 nit (cd/m2) high bright optically enhanced LCD with touchscreen, one PC VGA and 3 composite video inputs, 9-32V DC operation, VESA mounting support and an all-in-one cable for convenient vehicle installations.

Primetech is one of the UK's leading providers of satellite services and rugged computers for vehicle applications in the public safety and public security markets. is a division of Small PC Computers and is based in Clearwater, Florida. Roadwater designs and manufactures specialized Displays and Computers with a focus on vehicle applications for the road, water and air.
