Our client, a company celebrated for its expertise in pipeline inspection technologies in harsh environments, recently faced a significant challenge. With over a decade of experience, they have developed a reputation for reliable, remote-controlled inspection systems designed for underground pipes. However, when their incumbent TFT display from Mitsubishi, became obsolete, they were stuck with a backlog of orders and the looming threat of inability to service future demands. This case study explores how Relec Electronics stepped in to deliver a custom TFT display solution that not only met but exceeded the client’s requirements.


The initial plea highlighted a pressing need: their existing Mitsubishi TFT display critical for their inspection systems had been discontinued, causing a cascade of challenges. With a mounting backlog and future serviceability at stake, they needed a replacement display that would seamlessly integrate into their existing systems without disrupting their operations or product design.


Understanding the urgency of the situation, Relec Electronics acted swiftly. Our approach was centred around not just matching the technical specifications of the obsolete product but enhancing the new solution where possible. After reviewing the requirements, we proposed a high brightness TFT display boasting 1000 nits to ensure visibility in outdoor applications, critical for underground inspection environments.

Our team provided detailed information on the backlighting, allowing them to bypass the internal control and manage their own electronics for the lighting panel—mirroring the flexibility of their previous solution. Additionally, acknowledging the rugged demands of the application, we integrated a 3mm optically bonded cover glass to enhance durability and readability.

Relec’s commitment to detail was evident as we furnished the client with comprehensive drawings, a competitive quote, and a timeline that promised a sample in an acceptable period. This custom TFT display solution proposal was meticulously tailored to ensure a near-perfect mechanical fit, demonstrating our capability to adapt solutions to the specific needs of our clients.


The results spoke volumes.

The newly integrated custom TFT display solutions not only filled the gap left by the Mitsubishi TFT but also provided improved performance and reliability under the strenuous conditions of underground pipe inspection. The feedback from engineering and product development was overwhelmingly positive, noting Relec’s quick response and the seamless integration of the new display into their systems.

This successful engagement has not only solved an immediate problem but also laid the groundwork for future collaborations. They acknowledged that Relec Electronics would be a front-runner in their selection process for upcoming display and power solutions projects, thanks to our demonstrated reliability and responsive service.
