In landscape mode, the panels can display 100 lines of static text, maximum 200 characters wide; in portrait mode the screens can display 133 lines of static text, maximum 150 characters wide. The panels also support 40 characters of dynamic text with embedded variables.
The EA3 series panels are UL rated for use on a flat surface of NEMA4/4X enclosures (for indoor use only); panels are powered from a Class 2, 12-24 VDC power supply.
The new line of C-more Micro graphic panels is backed with a two-year warranty.
