Our new industrial keyboard, featured in the “New Product prototype: Industrial Keyboard” sneak preview back in March, is now shipping. The Industrial Wall Mount Folding Keyboard mounts to any vertical surface and is designed to be used with our Panel Mount Monitors. The keyboard folds up or down for convenient storage and has two different typing positions.
One of the first things customers usually say when entering our trade show stall is “Wow, the stainless steel looks great!” We do go to great lengths to make sure things look good, but most of our effort is spent ensuring that our Stainless Steel NEMA 4X products meet the functional anti-corrosive needs of our customers. Equipment used in the food/beverage, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries must be highly resistant to water, cleaning/sterilization, and other industrial chemicals.
Did you know that NEMA does not require independent testing of monitor enclosures to assure compliance? Because of this, many industrial monitor manufacturers actually “self-certify” their products as being NEMA-rated or IP-sealed, leaving the customer at the mercy of whatever testing methods the manufacturer has decided to use.
Most KVM Extenders transmit keyboard, video and mouse data over CAT5 cable, which is of course generally used for digital network applications. KVM Extender manufacturers choose this cable because it is cheap, readily available, and most industrial users are used to working with it. CAT5 cable is great stuff for all these reasons but has one significant shortcoming: it can be susceptible to EMI (ElectroMagnetic Interference) in electrically noisy environments.
At Hope Industrial Systems we take pride in the fact that our Panel Mount Monitors are the easiest to install in the industry.
Based on feedback from our customers, we have released a new version of our Industrial Thin Client/Small PC Enclosure with an integrated power supply that outputs 24 volts in addition to the existing 5 volt output. This new power option allows the enclosure to be used with a wide variety of industrial PC’s and thin clients that were previously not supported. The existing model supporting 5/12 VDC is still available.
Installing our workstations just got easier. For $85, we will assemble and test your workstation at our factory then ship the product to you in a single box.
Customer satisfaction has always been one of our top priorities at Hope Industrial Systems. We strive to provide excellent service and support because we know that strong customer relationships are just as important as manufacturing high quality products.
In 1987, IBM introduced the VGA connector, which has become the universal standard for analog video connections to monitors and touch screens. In 1999, DVI was introduced and has likewise become the standard for digital video connections to monitors and touch screens, even though it was never fully adopted and almost all displays can still support analog VGA. But times are changing and by 2015 both VGA and DVI are planned to be replaced by DisplayPort by many tech manufacturers.
