Mount Your Display on Hinges!

Hinged ARD20 Rugged 20" Display

It is difficult to find a compact and elegant method of hinge mounting in the market. Argon offers a system that is unmatched in the market.

Argon offers a unique hinge system for our displays and even keyboards.  Proven on shipboard and airborne applications, hinging units bring a level of maintenance convenience  that is not commonly found in the miltary market.

When performing maintenance behind the display, the user must typically dismantle the unit, disconnect the various cables and set the unit to the side. This can be a cumbersome process as you have to handle the unit, then find a place to set it during maintenance. And if the unit is needed to operate during maintenance, then this is an even bigger challenge.

With a hinge mount, this problem is solved. Simply back out the load bearing mounting bolts and swing the unit open like a refrigerator door! If the cabling is long enough, the unit can remain connected and fully functional.

Argon stands ready to help you with this and other innovative mounting systems.

Argon - Supplying the Most Compact and Lightweight Solutions on the Market

ASD50 & ACB100, Compact Design

Argon has years of experience in bringing the smallest footprint, bezel thickness and lowest weight to the market. Often times, we surprise our customers by offering an even larger display size than they thought possible for their installation. Our tablets incorporate single board computers within the outline of the display only version. Check our products to see if you can employ a larger viewable surface than you thought possible.

Ruggedization, Among Other Considerations, is a Trade-off Between Rigidity, Ingress Protection, Thermal Management and Compactness

Rigidity & Mounting

Argon Diplays and Computers are designed to use high quality aircraft alumnium.  Well considered positioning of board standoffs and other mounting provisions ensure that the unit can withstand the vibration and shock requirements of the most environmentally demanding applications.

Unit installation mounting provisions can be incorporated per customer requirements, including mounting provisions via threaded inserts on the sides, top and bottom of the unit, flanges, VESA mounting or any other non standard requirements.

Fully Enclosed Units

All Argon products and fully enclosed and use NO internal fans. This means that there are no holesi n the chassis where dirt, sand, dust or other particles can enter the unit.

LCD products incorporate mil standard compounds to prevent any leakage from the front of the display and meet all Mil Std 810 drip proof and rain requirements, including IP67.

Thermal Management

Without the use of fans, particularly in our computing products, the challenge is to design a thermal environment which ensures that the components remain at or below their thermal ratings, thus ensuring long life. Argon designs do just that by using propriatary design techniques to get the heat to the surface of the unit.

Compactness & Low Weight

Dispite the above mentioned design challenges, which work against a compact architecture, Argon is able to design the most compact and low weight rugged products on the market.
