The X9 Rugged Display is a  compact touchscreen display monitor that provides a crisp 12”, 17” or 24” diagonal LCD in the thinnest and most rugged display chassis on the market today. It is designed to provide the highest level of performance possible in a fully ruggedized, conduction-cooled, completely sealed system with an ultra-bright display and optional Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS). The X9 is targeted for applications where a robust display is needed to deliver the best possible monitor, while utilizing rugged or commercial interconnects to provide a fully sealed system that is less than 2.5 inches thick.

Additionally, the X9 Rugged Display is offered with several screen options in 16:9 format, with or without touchscreen and bezel keys. The standard touch screen is resistive, which is the most common type of touchscreen for rugged environments due to its reliability and ability to work with gloves. However, X9 Rugged Displays can be optionally equipped with multi-touch projected capacitive, resistive or infrared touchscreen panels, depending on the intended application environment.

The X9 Rugged Display screen is protected with the most robust glass available in the market, which can withstand a direct “boot kick” without damaging the display or the touch screen. The D17 supports High Definition (HD) at 1920 x 1080 resolution and is sunlight readable with 800 nits (cd/m2, typ.) of brightness. RuggedView™ also supports optional display coatings to maximize the screen readability and clarity in wet, bright or multi light source environments: anti-reflective (AR), anti-glare (AG), polarizer and water-rejection coatings. The display also optionally supports NVIS MIL-STD-3009, which reduces eye strain in applications where night vision glasses are used. The RuggedView™ D17 may also optionally be purchased with less robust glass to meet specific requirements and price points

The X9 Rugged Display provides two Thunderbolt™ 4 ports, for Daisy Chain of up to 4 displays, and dual USB3. The X9 Display is connected to the Host computer via a Thunderbolt™ 4 and may be powered directly from the Host up to 50 meters away or powered with external +20VDC power via Smart Power™ (patent pending) connector for safe, Ultra Low EMI and IP67 waterproof.

When connected to external power, the X9 Display is capable of powering X9Host computers or other X9 modules within the system while providing data throughput at 40Gbps.
