Capacitive Touch vs Projected Capacitive Touch Technology
Projected Capacitive touch technology measures the capacitance at each electrode in the touchscreen grid, this capacitance is affected when you finger, or stylus, is nearby which means these screens can be used with any type of thin glove.

Typical Capacitive touch screens (also known as Surface Capacitive or non-projected) have an extremely small amount of electrical charge on the glass surface. When you touch the glass with your finger, stylus, or material that can hold a charge, a small amount of electrical charge transfers from the glass to your finger or stylus. The touchscreen senses the decrease in capacitance and detects where you pressed on the screen. This type of touchscreen cannot be used with thin latex gloves for example since latex does not hold a charge.

See article "Why use a Capacitive Touch Screen PC in an Industrial Application?" for more information on uses for capacitive touchscreens in industrial applications.

High Brightness Touchscreens

Sunlight Readable Industrial Monitors

Industrial High Brightness touchscreen LCD displays deliver enhanced display performance with professional-grade panels. 1,000 nits' brightness and high contrast ratios are ideal for applications in Industrial Automation, Healthcare, Banking, Retail and Transportation and environments with heavy with ambient light.

What are Nits?

Monitor Luminance is measured in candelas per square meter (cd/m2), sometimes referred to as "nits." Sunlight readable displays provide higher light output, sometime double the nits of standard displays, and often feature special filters to reduce glare.

Why Class 1 Division 2?

Our C1D2 Industrial Monitors for hazardous locations are ATEx, IECEx certified. These industrial monitors are perfect for applications in oil, gas, petrochemical, and mining. With a high performance optically bonded, capacitive touchscreen that feature 1000nits*, these units are perfect for your light intensive environments. Choose from 15" or 19" to fit your environment and application needs.

Why Class 1 Division 2?

Rugged Construction

Our High Brightness Industrial Panel PCs and Monitors are IP65 rated and have a steel black chassis, making them extremely durable.

Rugged Construction

IP65 Rated

Our High-Brightness units are designed and tested for harsher environments making them ideal to withstand prolonged shock & vibration, a wide temperature range, and protection from water and dust.

IP65 - IP rated as "dust tight" and protected against water projected by a nozzle (6.3 mm) against enclosure from any direction. IP65 rated panel PCs can be sprayed clean and prevent ingredients from making their way into the system and causing damage to components.

  • Complete protection from dust, oil, and other non-corrosive material
  • Complete protection from contact with enclosed equipment
  • Protection from water, up to water projected by a nozzle against enclosure from any direction

Extended Temperature

Industrial Monitor solutions for applications that are exposed to extreme operating temperature.

Our Extended Temperature Monitors meet strict requirements for food and beverage, medical, and pharmaceutical industries. These rugged units are rated -20c to +60c and feature an optically bonded, capacitive touchscreens with 1000nits for your light intensive environments. Choose from a sleek aluminum or stainless-steel enclosure. Class 1, Division 2 options available.

Read Our Case Studies

One of our customers created a high-brightness solution by pairing an Industrial Monitors with our HDMITM-enabled headless HMI

Our customer's manufacturing facility has bright overhead lighting, as well as natural skylights creating washout or glare issues with some other displays. Our large, clear, bright 21.5" industrial monitor solved this problem. VESA mounted above the equipment where it can be seen from a distance around the machine, the bright 1000nit display overcame difficulties from the factory lighting glare and surrounding equipment, enabling workers to clearly see machine status' and quickly resolve any alarm conditions that occur. Read more about how our monitor paired with our HDMITM-enabled headless HMI integrated with their legacy control equipment.

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)

SCADA is an integral part of a business, not just its operations. The flow of data from the control room to the board room must be seamless. In the past, supervisory control and manufacturing information systems have not been integrated. This is changing and companies are realizing both investments only achieve their full potential when they are capable of seamlessly working together.

We offer all the components you need to create your own unique level of supervisory data acquisition and control, from the simplest stand-alone machine to sophisticated multi-device networked production line(s), all the way to enterprise-level operations and IIoT functionalities leveraging cloud connectivity.
