Convert and upgrade your legacy CRT operator panel to modern LCD technology with VarTech’s CRT display retrofit program

LCD technology has replaced the Cathode Ray Tube (CRT), however, there are still many processes and applications that utilize CRTs as the main means of display and communication between the operator of machinery and the process. CRTs are known for being heavy, bulky, and for their high power consumption. Original CRT manufacturers have migrated production to LCD technology which has made locating available usable CRTs difficult, if not impossible. Our CRT display retrofit program can upgrade your displays to the newest LCD technology.

With many industrial, medical, military applications, these CRT monitors are embedded in the equipment they supervise and/or control which makes upgrading difficult and sometimes impossible. Unique shapes, screen sizes, mechanical formats, and communication interfaces are typically different than current LCD technology which can require costly and substantial modifications to the customer’s host equipment that may be inefficient or even impossible. Another distinct problem lies in communication between the much older host equipment and the new LCD display. Typically, current LCD communication protocol will not interface with the host equipment, which could be well over 30 years old.
