Disadvantages of CRT Monitors on FANUC Machinery:
- CRT monitors are extremely heavy
- CRT monitors occupy and consume large volumes of electricity
- Over time CRT monitors present several defects
Common CRT Monitor Defects:
- In different sectors of the display, color spots can start to appear and hinder visibility
- When your monitor displays an image for long periods of time, an ageing affect called raster burn can disfigure your monitor and reduce the monitor’s brightness significantly
- Pattern burn can occur as well, this occurs when the tube is imprinted with the image the monitor is displaying
- You may also experience scan burn, this results in a line with reduced visibility across your CRT monitor
The defects CRT monitors experience overtime can seriously hinder the operator’s ability to read the screen. When correctly identifying patterns or writing on the CRT screen plays a large role in the operation of your CNC machine and business, this can cause large amounts of down time. Not only do these defects affect the operation of your CNC machine, they also cause your CNC machine users to strain their eyes in an attempt to read what the monitor is displaying. Essentially making your workers, and in turn your CNC machine, less efficient.
Benefits of LCD Monitors
- LCD monitors have higher image quality
- LCD monitors are better for the eyes
- LCD monitors are lighter
- LCD monitors use less electricity
- LCD monitors do not have glare or distortion found in CRT monitors
- LCD monitors are available in the same sizes as CRT monitors but thinner dimensions
The biggest advantage of LCD monitors are how they can be flat. This means there are more possibilities for displaying the monitor without taking up extra space.
