  • Patent number: 10321614
    Abstract: An outdoor flat panel display assembly is provided to redesign the back cover of a display module where an isolated external circulation structure may be implemented to the back cover of the display module and the back plate of the case. Cold air is introduced into the heat dissipation space within the back cover via external circulating route while heat produced by the backlight, the system circuit board, and by the radiation of the sun can be dissipated through the external circulating route. The external circulation space is completely isolated from the internal space of the case in such a way that the vapor and dust in the introduced cold air are in no way to have contact with the components of the display and the glass of the case.
