Features

Readability from greater distance

CU200211-TE200A makes reading easy by offering larger 11 mm (.43 inches) character height and brighter 2,000 cd/m².

Character size comparison: 5 mm, 9 mm, and 11 mm VFD module

Character size 2 mm x 5 mm 4 mm x 9 mm 7 mm x 11 mm
Sample character 5 mm Vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) module 9 mm Vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) module 11 mm Vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) module
Sample VFD module CU20025-UW1J CU20029-UW1J CU200211-TE200A

Contrast ratio can be increased with use of the color filter.

Connectivity with RS232 interface

RS232 interface has flexible and can be communicated long range. As one of the common interface, RS232 can communicate to most applications.

RS232 to other serial interface

Selectable signal characteristics

  • Supports bi-directional communication
  • Flow control with DTR/DSR
  • Baud rates can be changed by jumper settings

RS232 to other serial interfaces

The RS232 can be converted into other communication method like a USB, RS422 and Ethernet by using a converter device which is available in the market.

RS232 with Vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) module

Longer range communication

The standard communication distance is 10 feet (approx. 3 meters)
