The Universal Mount Industrial Flat Panel Monitors have been designed to provide the industrial user with superior picture quality and practical features. This advanced technology is housed in a rugged NEMA/UL Type 2, 12/4 or 12/4/4X industrial enclosure that can be installed in a variety of locations in the factory environment. The monitors can be mounted on pedestals anchored to the floor, attached to a wall, column or post or hung from the ceiling.

With a depth of 82.6 mm (3.25") they easily fit into small spaces. Like all of our Universal Mount Monitors, this display can be combined with a variety of keyboard, mount, KVM Extender, and even Thin Client/PC Enclosure options to create a full, stand-alone workstation.

These complete workstations can be assembled in the field or fully assembled and tested at our factory when ordered with our optional Workstation Assembly Service.
