Standard off-the-shelf triplexed LCD 4-1/2 digit glass w/pins?

  1. Anybody have a good source for a standard off-the-shelf TRIPLEXED LCD
    numeric display, something around 0.3-0.56" tall characters (8-13mm)
    with 4-1/2 digits, maybe some annunciators? It needs to have DIP
    pins, not the zebra elastomer type connections or heat seal strip.

    Small volume for now, maybe 100-200/year, so a custom display is not
    practical. Price should be reasonable, of course.

    I see plenty of static-drive displays, but few triplexed ones.

    Digikey stocks the Varitronix VIM-503's for like $4.00. Looks like it's
    set up for voltmeter/DMM annunciators, 15 pins on the bottom.

    Hi Spehro

    Densitron have a 41/2 digit DG-004-2 10.2mm characters See Densitron.com.
    Don't know how good they are at supplying as I haven't used LCD glass for a
    while.

    30+ segments on 15 pins has to be multiplexed somewhere someway.
     
  6. Try RS Components. Main branch is in the UK, but they do have quite a
    number of branches in other countries. Main site http://rswww.com
