PartnerTech CD8220 Series Details

The CD-8220 customer pole display uses a liquid crystal display (LCD) tube presenting bright and easy to read characters. Because of the LCD technology, the display is designed for a low cost solution while providing almost the same capabilities as our standard VFD display.

The CD-8220 customer pole display has two pole sections giving you the choice of four different display heights. The display can be rotated up to 270 degrees. The head of the display can tilt up to 35 degrees maximum. The combination of these features gives you the flexibility to tailor the display position to your unique application. With two lines of twenty characters, the CD-8220 can display 96 alphanumeric messages with 13 partners characters. The CD-8220 customer pole display uses an easy to connect RS-232C serial port connection with available communication speeds of 4800 or 9600 bps. The CD-8220 pass-through function allows you to connect another serial device by sharing one single serial port on the host system. The CD-8220 also offers a variety of emulation modes including Epson, Aedex, Emax and Ultimate.
