HDTV and Digital Signage Monitors Get High-Heat Tested

Outdoor TVs, Digital Signage Displays Keep Their Cool “Can SunBriteTV and SunBriteDS outdoor TVs handle temperatures up to 130 degrees Fahrenheit?” “Can your HDTVs and digital signage monitors function in high-heat manufacturing environments?” “How long can they tolerate continuous hot temps?” As the leader in engineering outdoor televisions and commercial digital displays designed to operate under harsh conditions, we often receive inquiries from companies in need of TV, video monitor or digital signage display units for their specialized – often extreme – situations. For example, a manufacturing setting that throws-off ambient high temps when working non-stop – such as an auto assembly plant or steel mill. We continuously test our hi-def outdoor televisions & digital signage models. Our most recent, extreme heat testing of a 55″ Pro Series outdoor HDTV (SB-5517HD) proved that SunBriteTV and SunBriteDS weatherproof displays are built to endure extreme conditions – both outdoors and in. In Q4 2014, SunBriteTV engineers provided National Testing Systems (NTS), a certified testing facility located in Santa Clarita, CA with the SB-5517HD direct-sun tolerant Pro Series display. The objective of the test was to confirm our confidence in our displays functioning in extreme environments. The display was placed in a test chamber for five (5) days, 24 hours a day and experienced no problems. This test was to simulate an auto plant or steel mill type of environment where heat rises towards ceiling mounted displays. The SB-5517HD was placed inside a heat testing chamber. An engineer describes the rest of the test: “The unit sat on a table during the test. Power was supplied to the unit for the entire...
