Smallest Bezel Width on Rugged Displays


ArgonFDS displays are designed to have the smallest bezel width in the industry. Stated another way, the ratio of the viewable area to the total surface area is the largest to be found on the market.


By designing display monitors with the smallest possible bezel outlines, we allow customers to use a larger ArgonFDS rugged display within the same allocated space of their application. For example, we may get an inquiry or a 10″ rugged display, only to learn that the customer can incorporate our 12″ rugged display with no changes to their aperture opening or rack space. This provides their customer a better viewing experience without impacting their system design.

An additional benefit is that because ArgonFDS designs the smallest possible mechanical package from the outset, it becomes easier to incorporate functions or additional I/O that the customer may need, and only then can we increase the size of the unit and as little as possible, maybe not at all. Coming at the design from this perspective, instead of designing the unit with “extra” space from the beginning, ensures the customer has the most compact unit possible with no wasted space.
