A VMANX seven-segment display is a form of electronic display device that can represent decimal numerals and a few basic symbols using a combination of seven individual segments. These segments are arranged in a pattern, typically in the shape of the number 8, with each segment designated as "a," "b," "c," "d," "e," "f," or "g."

By selectively illuminating these segments, different numbers and characters can be displayed. Each segment can be turned on or off independently to form various combinations, allowing the display of numbers from 0 to 9 and some letters and symbols.


At the same time, VMANX seven segment display can display and add touch functions, color graphics, and other processes, providing more optional conditions for project display. here is a diagram showing the segment layout for a typical seven-segment display:

In the above diagram, the middle horizontal segment is often referred to as the "dp" (decimal point). The remaining segments are labeled with letters from "a" to "g". Depending on the combination of segments that are illuminated, different numbers and characters can be displayed.


For example, to display the number "1" on a seven-segment display, you would illuminate segments "b" and "c" only. To display the number "8", you would illuminate all segments except for the "dp" segment.


VMANX Seven-segment displays are commonly used in various applications such as digital clocks, calculators, digital meters, and other electronic devices where numeric or alphanumeric information needs to be displayed in a simple and compact format.
