Do you provide a statement about decompression testing for your LCD monitors?

We have had two LCD monitors tested for rapid decompression, a FD215-CV-C-1 22″ monitor and a FD151CV-CR-P 15″ monitor. Both displays passed the decompression test and were operational after completion. Please contact us if you would like copies of these reports.

Our LCD monitors consist in part of a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) and a polycarbonate protective sheet which is secured to the LCD with an open cell foam gasket. There is no gas introduced or maintained between the LCD and the polycarbonate. The majority of our LCD monitors have similar construction using the same cold-cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) technology.

Flight Display Systems does not have any testing on what, if anything, is released during a decompression event where there is a failure.

What is the difference between Native Resolution and Supported Resolution?

Native Resolution is the exact number of dots on the physical screen. If the “Native Resolution” is 1280 x 768, the screen is physically 1280 dots wide and 768 dots tall. Supported Resolution is the number of dots a monitor can emulate electronically. The monitor may accept 1980 x 1200 as a “Supported Resolution”, but the image will only be as good as the “Native Resolution.”

Is there any mating connector lock in the plug connector on the pigtail from the FD102CMT?

Yes. A hex bolt-spacer is supplied on the pigtail. The connector will screw into these threads.

You will be supplied with a ship-kit to connect to the monitor that includes the following:

  • High density, D-sub, 15 contact receptacle (female) P/N 748565-1
  • HD15F pins P/N M39029/57-354
  • D-sub, 9 contact receptacle (female) P/N 205203-1
  • DB9F pins P/N M39029/63-368

The high density, D-sub, 15 contact receptacle (female) and the D-sub, 9 contact receptacle (female) are supplied with short screws.

How do I invert the Flipper screen image?

Our Flippers manufactured today are specified top or bottom for mounting and picture orientation. So it is not possible to invert the screen image.

Previously, our Flippers did have an invert feature in the menu setting.

  • If your source selection says, “CVBS1” or “CVBS2” when you press the source selector button (you may have only one source but the information is still the same) then you will not have an invert feature.
  • If your source selection says, “Composite” or “SVideo” or “RGB” when you press the source selector button then you may have the feature in your menu setting (look for invert or flip.)
