Display available at RS online?

Post by PE5PVB » Mon Jan 28, 2019 9:36 am

Any change I can buy a compatible display for the Portsdown on RS Online? I need some parts from that company, but also need a display for my portsdown transmitter. This will reduce transport costs for me....

The 7 inch display is available from RS Online. Part number 111-5927. The 3.5 inch display is not.

That is the part number for a box of 40 displays. The individual display is part number 899-7466

Great. So this one is 100% compatible, with all functions of the Portsdown?

Sorry about the 40!

The 7 inch screen is fully supported (I have 2), but is not compatible with Composite Video Output, and the FreqShow touch interface does not work properly.

The composite video issue is a major driver problem (beyond my capabilities) and FreqShow is usable, but very awkward.

Dave,

So what's the difference between this one and this one: https://nl.rs-online.com/web/p/products/8997466/

Good question!

They look identical, one is shown fully assembled and the other is shown without the PCB attached.

I bought one from Amazon that was shown without the PCB attached, but arrived fully assembled.
