Argon products, including displays and computers, are all designed to have a fully enclosed mechanical package. There are no internal or external fans required for cooling. There are no obvious ingress points for liquid or even the smallest of particles.


With no need for installation measures to accomodate cooling, the Argon product can be installed in a larger variety of locations, requires no special system cooling or protection provisions and can be mounted in a larger number of ways. With no fans, the unit MTBF is higer and there is lower (no) noise generated.

Argon accomplishes this with no compromse to MTBF over the specified operating temperature range. Our propriatary design techniques ensure that internally generated heat is moved to the surface of the unit and away from the components.

In addition to the above benefits, our products can be used in a larger number of harsh environments with no need for console mounting to protect he sides and back of the unit (if an external mount is preferred). This means that the Argon design inherently supports resistance to sand, dust, water and other particulants thay may reduce the life of the unit or induce failures for all sides of the unit


Argon has recently introduced and qualified a sunlight readable 20.1" rugged display option for our ARD20. The unit now incorporates an LED backlighting system that also support NVIS requirements.


Aside from the fact that Argon is offering a 19" rack mount unit for C4ISR applications that is sunlight readable, with the absence of CCFL's there is no longer a personnel hazard due to the presence of mercury and high voltage circuits.

An additional benefit is more precise control over the dimming range, via Argon's analog control. Dimming range no longer needs to be expressed in terms of ratio's.
