Hardware compatibility

The ThinkVision L170 monitor is supplied with a detachable 1.8-meter video signal cable. This cable has the widely used 15-pin, D-Sub video connector for system unit connection.This monitor has been tested and is compatible with systems and graphics adapters which comply with the relevant parts of "VESA and industry standards and guidelines for computer display monitor timing" Version 1.0 Revision 0.8, adopted September 17, 1998. Supported display modes and number of colors are a function of the attaching system unit. The full range of display modes, refresh rates, and number of colors available with this monitor may not be available or supported with all combinations of system units, their operating systems, and application software. Implementation of monitor Plug and Play follows the VESA DDC standard. This standard must also be implemented in the attaching system unit hardware and software to be effective.

The ThinkVision L170 LCD monitor is intended to operate with system units or video adapters that generate a video output signal falling within the ThinkVision L170 specification below:

  • Maximum addressability (pixels) 1280 x 1024
  • Maximum pixel rate (MHz) 135

The ThinkVision L170 supports VESA Standard Timings as detailed in "Display Monitor Timing Specification," Version 1.0, Revision 0.8, dated September 17, 1998, for the following modes:

  • VGA: 640 x 480 at 60, 72 and 75 Hz
  • SVGA: 800 x 600 at 60, 72 and 75 Hz
  • XGA: 1024 x 768 at 60, 70 and 75 Hz
  • SXGA: 1280 x 1074 at 60 and 75 Hz

The ThinkVision L170 also supports the following modes:

  • 640 x 350 at 70 Hz
  • 640 x 480 at 66 Hz
  • 720 x 400 at 70 Hz
  • 832 x 624 at 75 Hz
  • 1024 x 768 at 75 Hz (Mac)
  • 1152 x 864 at 75 Hz
  • 1152 x 870 at 75 Hz
  • 1152 x 900 at 66 Hz
  • 1280 x 1024 at 72 Hz
  • 1280 x 2024 at 76 Hz

National language support is a function of the video adapter in the system unit and the application or support software.

Technical specifications

NOTE:
Physical specifications shown are at the time of announcement.

Power requirements

  • Input voltage: 100 to 240 V ac +/- 10%
  • Frequency: 50/60 Hz
  • Power consumption (Maximum): < 40 watts
  • Power consumption (Normal Use): < 40 watts typical
  • Power consumption (VESA Standby): < 2 watts
  • Power consumption (VESA Suspend): < 2 watts
  • Power consumption (VESA Off): < 2 watts
  • Maximum earth leakage current: < 3.5 mA at 264 V
  • Maximum earth leakage current: < 0.25 mA at 100 V

    NOTE:
    Actual power consumption depends on the screen mode used, the images displayed, and how user controls are set.

Product limitations

  • Supported display modes are a function of the attaching system unit and video subsystem. The full range of display modes available with these monitors may not be available or supported with all combinations of system units, their operating systems, video adapter cards, and application software.
  • Horizontal- and vertical-synchronization signal timings are critical in order to achieve acceptable screen images. As a consequence, support for all possible variations in H- and V-sync timings for any display mode cannot be assumed.
  • Adjustment of the user controls to enlarge the image to its maximum size requires that the signal timings of the display mode being used fall within the monitor-timing specifications.
  • The number of colors shown in any display mode (up to a maximum of 16.7 million) is not limited by the monitor, but depends on the capabilities of the video adapter in the system unit.
  • The ThinkVision L170 provides FCC class B - residential installation - compliance in all display modes.
  • Implementation of monitor power management follows the VESA DPMS standard. This standard must also be implemented in the attaching system unit hardware and software for monitor power management to be effective. The system implementation must provide user-adjustable, power-down delay periods. The monitor power management function is invoked only after appropriate signals are received from an attached system unit or video adapter.
  • Implementation of monitor Plug and Play follows the VESA DDC standard. This standard must also be implemented in the attaching system unit hardware and software for monitor Plug and Play to be effective.
  • Certain functions require the system unit to be similarly configured, so all monitor functions may not be enabled when attached to a particular system unit.
  • A 17.0-inch TFT monitor has nearly 4.0 million subpixel transistors laid over an area exceeding 141 square inches. Cost-effective manufacturing processes introduce a small number of defective subpixel 2 transistors. The L170 monitor is considered within specification up 2 to 10 sub-pixels defects as follows:
    • < = Total ten dark and bright
      • < = Seven dark
      • < = Four bright
    • Two adjacent
      • < = Less one pair bright
      • < = Less two dark pair
    • Three adjacent
      • 0 bright
      • < = Less 1 set of three dark
    • - Use of 50% background is not recommended since some users may see undesirable FOS effects.
    • - The Auto-Setup "test pattern" can be used with Windows 3.1, Windows NT 3.5, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000, and DOS 7.0 only.

Acoustics

Declared acoustical noise emissions LWAU = 4.5 bels or less. The noise emission level stated is the declared (upper limit) A-weighted sound power level, in bels, for a random sample of monitors. All measurements are made in accordance with ANSI S12.10 and reported in conformance with ISO/DIS 7779.

Emissions

All models in this announcement meetemission category A requirements of Swedish Standard SS-436-14-90 (MPR-3) in addition to those of MPR-2.

All models in this announcement meet the Swedish Board for Technical Accreditation (SWEDAC) emission guidelines contained in MPR 1990:10 when tested using the MPR 1990:08 test method.

The model 6734-AC0 meets the TCO99 Environmental Label from the Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees (TCO), and the emission, power management, and electrical safety requirements of the TCO99 Environmental Label.

Ergonomics

Compliance to the ISO standard ISO/DIS 13406 Part 2 ensures ergonomic requirements are met when the monitor forms part of an ISO-compliant system.
