LCD1040SX – 10.4″ Touch Sensitive Display (Sunlight readable)


The LCD1040SX is a 10.4″ transflective touchscreen with an anti-glare surface which can be viewed even under direct sunlight.  The display is suitable for any PC with a VGA video output, and can also display footage from up to 3 analogue cameras via RCA inputs.  A basic dashboard mounting bracket is included, but the LCD1040SX’s VESA mounting holes allow it to be used with a wide range of other mounting solutions – such as RAM Mount brackets for installation at various locations within the vehicle cab.

The touchscreen is supplied with a 2.5m all-in-one cable, which supplies all necessary feeds to the touchscreen via a single cable.  The cable breaks out into industry-standard connectors (VGA, RCA, DC plug, etc.) approximately half-way along its length, and has a male multi-pin connector at the display end.  The display itself has a short cable protruding from the back with a corresponding female multi-pin connector for connection to the all-in-one cable.

The LCD1040SX switches on automatically when a signal is detected on the VGA input, and automatically switches to its third RCA camera input when a 12V signal is applied to a dedicated input feed line (e.g. indicating that reverse gear is selected).

The LCD1040SX has a high native resolution of 1024 x 768, making it perfect for applications that present lots of detailed information on the screen.
