MONO Evaluation Kit is hot pluggable and does not require extra cables or power supply to run, allowing users to be up and running in minutes. Each kit consists of a 1RU, 2RU, 1/16th DIN or 1/8th DIN MONO display with transition Board, USB controller card, mini USB cable and a CD with software application and drivers. USB Controller Card is common for all the available DUO kits.
Engineering Design Service Are you looking for custom displays or to turn your design concepts into completed products? Densitron's Engineering Design Service (EDS) offers options on customizing displays and integrating standard or custom display modules with PCBs, Plastics, Keypads and/or Touch Overlays. For customers who require end-to-end project support, Densitron’s EDS encompasses every aspect of product development and manufacture, including: User Interface and Industrial design Complete plastics design, manufacture and assembly service Prototyping, tooling, production and assembly. Throughout every stage we use the most advanced production technology and work to strict quality control systems.
E-Paper Retain an Image with No Power E-Paper displays can retain contents for years without using any power but can be updated fast and easy. Sunlight readable 180° viewing angle 1.1 Mm Thickness Lightweight Good contrast ratio Monochrome Perfect for applications where power availability is limited and periodical or random update is required. Applications: Shelf labelling Security Tags Advertising Boards Direction Signs Energy Meters Hospital Patient Cards Notice Boards (Meeting Room) and so much more

Adaptag development kit Sub 1GHz Pros – Better range than 2.4 GHz with the same output power – Lower frequencies have better penetration through concrete and steel compared to 2.4 GHz – Higher sensitivity Sub 1GHz Cons – No worldwide solution possible. Since different bands are used – Duty cycle restrictions in some regions 2.4 GHz Pros – License-free operation in most countries – 100% duty cycle is possible – More compact antenna solution than sub 1 GHz 2.4 GHz Cons – Shorter range than sub 1 GHz solution (with the same current consumption) – Consumes more power than Sub1G – Very crowded and noisy
