We all remember in the 80’s this was the only way to display, however, when customers’ needs became more complex and demanding we saw the advent of LCD (Liquid Crystal Display). This was immediately followed by the backlit displays as it was at times difficult to see the displays, especially in direct sunlight. Today, with the advent of newer technologies, both LCD’s and LED’s have taken a quantum leap and in the last couple of years the market has been increasingly flooded with commercial products using the latest Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED’s) and LCD displays.
A typical OLED display is a layer of organic material or polymer between two electrodes, and depending upon the type of organic material used, the color of light will be emitted upon excitation of electrical voltage. Significant improvement in semiconductor technologies has seen the return of the LED’s in the form of OLED, or the Organic LED, with major advantages over its predecessor and other display technologies currently on the market which has many leading manufacturers looking at them again.

MILLENNIUM II GAS DETECTOR – Superior Display Capabilities Through OLED Technology
Net Safety Monitoring utilizes an OLED display in our Millennium II Series of gas detection products. This display consists of three full lines of information, with 16 alpha-numeric characters per line, for a total of 48 visible characters on the display. This allows for a wide range of information to be simultaneously displayed and effectively communicated in multiple languages, while being easily read in any lighting condition. This large display combined with the other performance advantages associated with OLED displays makes the Millennium II the preferred choice among operators in the field.
