Why CRT Monitor Retrofit May be Necessary

Why CRT Monitor Retrofit May be Necessary

Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Monitors may seem like an outdated technology, but they continue to be used for a variety of applications across multiple industries.

CRT Monitors were popular for years because they are less expensive than other display technologies, such as LCD monitors, and feature quicker response time. Besides these advantages, CRT monitors can operate at any resolution and images won’t have to be rescaled to fit different aspect ratios – a definite time saving feature.

Plus, a CRT monitor can work in dim to low light, a common lighting situation in machine rooms and other departments in an operation. Part of this is due to the screen’s ability to reflect any available light, which increases brightness. Despite its ability to function in low light, a CRT monitor produces more colors, thanks to its technology.

For these reasons, CRT monitors were popular choices for most industries, However, CRT monitors also come with a number of issues that are making them obsolete.

Time for a Retrofit!

The drawback to CRT monitors is that parts are no longer being manufactured for them due to cathode tube rays needing mercury – a toxic substance that is no longer used in many products due to health concerns.

Another key part of the CRT monitor is the high voltage transformer, which controls horizontal movement of the electron beam that helps create the image. These transformers are no longer being manufactured due to the fact they are considered obsolete.

The process of an LCD retrofit includes a plug and play solution – obsolete components are replaced with new parts that are reliable and perform a faster pace. Retrofits can be performed on virtually any monitor – it’s an upgrade that won’t strain your budget.
