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

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
