EIZO to Release LCD Monitor with Human Presence Sensor
Designed for use in offices, this new FlexScan monitor detects the presence of a person with an infrared sensor. And it shifts to the power saving mode when it finds the user leaving his or her desk and automatically resumes normal operation when the user returns.
The "EcoView Sense," a power saving function based on the presence sensor, detects objects within a 120cm range from the sensor unit by using an infrared sensor installed on the lower part of the front face of the monitor. The monitor shifts to the power saving mode when it determines that nobody is in the detection range for 40 seconds.
In order to avoid malfunction in small offices or in similar situations, the monitor checks the fluctuations in the detected values. And the monitor judges that the user has left the desk when the fluctuation in the detected value is lower than the predetermined level. To discriminate a person from a chair, etc, an object that does not move for one minute or longer is determined to be a still object even if it is in the 120cm range.
From the perspective of environmental friendliness, the product has an improved recycling efficiency and is compliant with "TCO Displays 5.0," the latest version of an international environmental standard, according to Nanao.This new FlexScan model will begin shipping after the summer.
