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.
