10Key feature: Weatherproof Tested and rated to withstand harshweather, water jets and dust:Protection against dust and water (IP56)All-weather protection (NEMA 4)Extended operating range with temperature monitoring: -20oC to 45oC (-4oF to +114oF)Proven weatherproofing offers new display opportunities and peace of mindWhat makes the Christie FHD551-W weatherproof?The Christie FHD551-W’s water and dust resistant exterior, optically-bonded glass, sophisticated cooling and filtration system and high-brightness all contribute to making it weatherproof. The exterior is able to withstand impacts, harsh weather and dust conditions in a way that does not hinder performance. The exterior is sealed to protect it from weather and water and includes IP and NEMA ratings (globally recognized water and object protection rating systems) while high-brightness ensures pristine visibility in almost any weather. These weatherproof features give customers the increased flexibility to extend promotions to harsh outdoor environmentsWeather, dust and impact ratingThe Ingress Protection (IP) and National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) rating systems were developed to create an industry standard in determining an electronic product’s protection against solid objects and exposure to liquid. IP ratings are based on a two-number code where the first number refers to a product’s protection against solid objects, while the second number showcases a product’s protection against liquids. Similarly, the NEMA rating tests the protection value of a product against the intrusion of dust and water.What happens when the ambient temperature goes beyond product capabilities?The product includes a sophisticated heating and cooling system, designed to operate in a wide temperature range (-4 to 114°F (-20 to 45°C); humidity <95%). Should the temperature drop below or above this threshold, the unit’s failsafe will automatically shut the unit off. The “winter mode” option ensures performance in cold conditions.
11Key feature: Brilliant visuals High quality picture enhances customerexperience:Designed to be viewed in high ambientlight and outdoor environmentsHigh brightness of 700 nits (cd/m2) typical*Contrast ratio of 4000:1* (full-on/full-off)*The display brightness and contrast ratio specified are measured prior to the adhesion of optically bonded glass overtop the display
12Key feature: Optically bonded glass Benefits of optically bonded glass:Increases impact and scratch resistanceSignificantly improves durability against vibration, extreme temperatures, altitudes, water and dustIncreases contrast and color saturationImproves sunlight readabilityPrevents condensationEliminates parallax issuesWhat is optical bonding and what benefits does it provide?Optical bonding involves affixing glass to the top surface of a display with an optical-grade adhesive. Benefits include:Elimination of condensation (fog) on the displayDrastic reduction of reflection, increasing sunlight readability compared to non-treated displaysGreatly improved display color saturation and contrastIncreased impact and scratch resistanceIncreased protection against vibration, extreme temperatures, water and dustWith optical bonding, the failure costs incurred by particles and moisture/vapor can be fully eliminated. By removing the air-gap, a tighter and tougher LCD stack is created to protect against:Vibration during shipmentFinger pressure and impacts during user operation
13Key feature: Easy-to-maintain and reliable design Designed to ensure superior reliabilityin the most demanding environments:Proprietary active DACSTM cooling and filtration system has active thermostatic controlProtects electronic components from temperature extremes, moisture and dustEasy clean, lifetime filterWill automatically shut off when operating temperature is exceeded (-20oC to +45oC)Direct Air Cooling System (DACS) uses thermostatically-controlled, active cooling to keep display temperatures lower and more stable than other solutions, resulting in greater reliability and longer product life. DACS uses a proprietary two stage filter system. A removable, cleanable dust filter removes particles from incoming air. A second, lifetime membrane filter removes moisture from incoming air, keeping electronics cool and dry.What is the DACS Cooling & Filtration System?Our proprietary DACS Cooling & Filtration System provides a thermostatically-controlled active cooling/filtration system that protects sensitive electronics from temperature extremes, moisture and dust, for superior reliability in the most demanding environments. DACS uses thermostatically-controlled, active cooling to keep display temperatures lower and more stable than other solutions, resulting in greater reliability and longer product life. The DACS proprietary two stage filter system includes a removable, cleanable dust filter that removes particles from incoming air. It also has a second, lifetime membrane filter removes moisture from incoming air, keeping electronics cool and dry.The lifetime membrane filter offers an easy-clean solution, eliminating the need for core filter replacement.

IP classifies and rates the degree of protection provided against the intrusion of solid objects, dust, impacts and water. The Christie FHD551-W has an IP56 rating – which provides enhanced protection against water and dust. The “5” in the rating means the display is protected against contact from solid objects, including protection to ensure that dust will not enter the unit in sufficient quantity to interfere with operation. The “6” refers to the level of liquid protection – specifically protection from powerful water jets (12.5mm nozzle) against the enclosure from any direction.What does a NEMA 4 rating mean?A NEMA4 rating means that the Christie FHD551-W is watertight (weatherproof) and meets requirements for IP56. The exterior can endure and continue operating with 65 GPM of water from 1” nozzle delivered from a distance no less than 10 ft. for 5 minutes. It is waterproof enough to be used in wet environments such as recreation facilities, ship docks, dairies, breweries and many more.Weather, dust and impact ratingThe Ingress Protection (IP) and National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) rating systems were developed to create an industry standard in determining an electronic product’s protection against solid objects and exposure to liquid. IP ratings are based on a two-number code where the first number refers to a product’s protection against solid objects, while the second number showcases a product’s protection against liquids.
