Faceplates are the covers of various electronic components such as computers, cameras, and mobile phones. They provide aesthetic value aside from protection against dust, dirt, and damages. They are usually made of solid plastic in plain or colorful designs. The more common faceplates are mobile phone housings, outlet cases, and adapter covers.
Types of Faceplates
Kinds of Faceplates include the following:
Chalnicon faceplates are made of materials that provide monochrome radiation tolerance to various devices such as cameras, mobile phones, and computers.
They offer great sensitivity, temperature stability, and image burn reduction.
They operate at low dose rates.
Vidicon faceplates also provide monochrome radiation tolerance to various devices such as cameras, mobile phones, and computers.
However, they are not as sensitive and stable as Chalnicon faceplates.
They operate at higher dose rates, usually in environments with dose rates higher than 100 Krad per hour.
Choosing Faceplates (Buying tips)
UV resistance: For outdoor use, choose a UV-resistant faceplate to withstand the damage caused by extreme heat and the sun's UV rays.
