The Sharp PN-E421 42" Full Color LCD Monitor is a high-performance, professional display monitor that offers full 1080p high-definition imagery in a sturdy, lightweight design. Made for continuous 24-7 use, the monitor's thin bezel, portrait/landscape orientation, and fanless operation ensure it remains a quiet, unobtrusive presence in any number of indoor settings, from video conference rooms to traffic control centers, houses of worship, and digital signage venues.
Coming standard with HDMI and analog/digital RGB inputs, the PN-E421 offers a modular expansion slot that allows for increased inputs (composite, component, S-Video, DVI-D and more) via the optional PN-ZB01 board. An optional signage controller is also available, which attaches easily to the back, with video walls of up to 5 x 5 possible. Flexible and reliable, the PN-E421 is backed by Sharp's 3-year on-site limited warranty, which covers parts, labor and backlight.
A new slim bezel and thinner profile create a stylishly slender design, while a brushed metal finish gives the entire bezel a high quality look and feel.
Through improvements in LCD parts and materials, monitor weight has been reduced over earlier models, making it easier to transport and install the display.
Built-in 10 watts per channel stereo speakers eliminate the need for an external audio system for many installations. These rear-mounted speakers are ideal for conveying audio content along with background music. Audio line-out terminals are also provided for easy connection with external audio components, and when used with the optional PN-ZB01 input/output expansion board, stereo speaker terminals (10W + 10W) are available.
Carrying Handles for Safe Setup
Heavy-duty carrying handles are included with each monitor to ensure safe handling. These handles may be detached when the display is installed. All models additionally incorporate a VESA-compliant mounting hole configuration to help ensure a safe and secure installation with compatible third-party mounting hardware.
Using the RS-232C interface, each Sharp LCD monitor can be easily controlled and monitored from a central location via a PC. Each monitor can be assigned an individual ID code to specify on/off, input change and various screen adjustments and settings.
For total ease of operation, the Schedule function allows programming of up to eight settings for automatic monitor turn on/off at specified times on a daily, weekly, or one-time basis.
Web Browser Setting
Sharp PN-E series LCD monitors can be easily operated through a Web browser and optional monitor control software.
Display status, continuous operating time, and other parameters can be monitored over a local area network using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
Sharp LCD monitors are designed to maintain airflow and dissipate heat without the use of mechanical air-ventilation fans, which can attract dust and create noise.
Built-In Temperature Sensor
A built-in sensor detects when the temperature inside a monitor rises, and the backlight system automatically adjusts to keep the temperature within operational level.
Power On Delay
To reduce the load placed on the power supply when a number of monitors are turned on at the same time, the PN-E Series allows a time delay between the startup of each monitor when configured in videowalls and multi-monitor installations.
The Log Save/Output function saves operating logs, signal changes, and information on operational irregularities, which helps boost the troubleshooting efficiency of service technicians.
The Hardware Diagnosis function detects any irregularities in power supply voltage and indicates those irregularities on the monitor.
The E-Mail Notification function allows regular display status updates and malfunctions to be sent to a specified e-mail address.
When using an analog RGB connection, if a change occurs with the input signal timing, the clock phase will adjust automatically.
