LCD Systems offers three methods of lighting your LCD display--E/L backlighting, LED array backlighting, and LED edge lit backlighting.

  • E/L Backlighting

Electro luminescent backlights are high voltage, low current and operate at 115V, 60-400Hz. Benefits are even light and low current drain. E/L backlighting requires an inverter. E/L backlights reach 1/2 brilliance at 3,000 to 12,000 hours depending on color, operating voltage, and drive frequency.

  • LED Array Backlighting

LED array backlights operate at low voltage and have a higher current drain than E/L backlights . Their primary benefit is their high life expectancy of 100,000 hours or more.

  • Edge Lit LED Backlighting

Edge lit LED backlights are similar to the LED array backlights, except fewer LEDs are used, and they are placed on the edge of a light pipe. Edge lit LED backlights are thinner and normally require less current, making them ideal for battery powered applications.
