Online cross-reference guides provide power solutions backlighting OEM LCD panels
Endicott has updated its online cross-reference guides to make finding the proper inverter, driver solution for backlit LCD panels
Endicott Research Group, Inc. (ERG), a manufacturer of CCFL inverters and LED drivers for backlit LCD applications, has updated its online cross-reference guides to make finding the best inverter/driver solution for backlit LCDs even easier. These new tools allow a design engineer or purchasing agent to quickly match an OEM LCD panel with just the right inverter/driver for optimum backlight performance.
The LCD-CCFL Inverter Cross-Reference Guide makes finding the right inverter part number easier than ever for industrial LCDs in the 5.7” - 32” diagonal range. As CCFL-backlit LCDs are still in widespread use across a variety of applications, ERG continues to offer the, allegedly, broadest range of standard and custom inverter solutions as well as the best engineering support. Users can search by ERG inverter part number or by the panel manufacturer’s model number to find a detailed datasheet on the specific ERG inverter they need. Hundreds of panels from most major LCD manufacturers are included along with inverter part numbers for single-, dual-, and multi-lamp backlights with 5V or 12V input, all manufactured and supported in the U.S.A.
As the use of LEDs in the backlit-display industry continues to expand, ERG’s LCD-LED Driver Cross-Reference Guide continues to grow, with datasheets on more than 200 different drivers supporting more than 150 OEM panels. It has been updated with ERG’s line of full-function drivers for LED-backlit industrial LCDs in the 5.7” – 28” diagonal range. Not only is the cross-reference guide a useful tool for designing new backlighting applications, but also for finding a retrofit solution for CCFL replacement parts when a crossover to LED is desired. It also has been updated with ERG’s extensive line of LED replacement rails, matched with the appropriate LED driver, for a number of OEM LED-backlit panels.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
