    Any one successful with RGB to LDC monitor swap?

    I have looked for a new CRT and board but they range from $800 to $1200+ Just thought I would ask if anyone did a DIY monitor change to an LCD. I know the Delta 20 old is but she is mine and I am still having fun for now. By the way, what is this used for?

    I don't think its possible to do on a Delta 20. To change out the display for an LCD, you'd need a VGA card which wasn't available on the Delta 20 (as far as I know).

    Your picture shows a jog wheel. You turn it to move the axes in jog mode.

    You can not just add a board to the CNC. The Delta 10/20 were true CNC with all custom hardware. The 30?40/50/60 and Delta 2000 have a basis on PC hardware and can run VGA monitors without a real issue. As stated you would need a some type of converter to change the signal type to run one of today's monitors.

    Are you actually asking what an MPG is for?

    depending on the video standard of the original monitor you may find a converter to convert
    the Delta's RGB output (possibly with syncs on Green o/p ) to SVGA

    if the new SVGA monitor is able to lock to the Delta video line & frame rate
    you may only need a simple converter to convert the original sync signal to the separate Horizontal sync & Vertical sync for the SVGA input

    possibly a converter sold to connect a new SVGA monitor to old arcade games
