Our customers periodically ask if it’s possible to hook a single industrial touch screen up to two computers. Using a KVM Switch, you can connect a single keyboard, mouse, and/or monitor to control multiple PC’s.
When doing an initial touch screen alignment, the Elo drivers used in all of our industrial touch screens display the standard “touch the targets” dialog: the user is shown a series of onscreen targets and asked to click on them.
We use resistive touch screen sensors in all of our industrial touch screen models. These sensors are very well suited to industrial control applications for a variety of reasons. This article discusses the technology itself and its benefits. We also talk about the Elo AccuTouch line of sensors and controllers, and why we chose them.
We use Elo Touchsystems touch sensors and controllers in almost all of our industrial touchscreen products. This post gives an overview of how Elo handles driver support for Linux platform.
Hope Industrial Systems is now shipping Hazloc-rated models of our 17″ and 19″ industrial monitors and touch screens. Our Panel Mount and Universal Mount displays (including our keyboards and KVM extenders) have been certified by UL for Class I, II, and III, Division 2 locations. These displays are also certified by UL for Type 12/4/4X environments, carry a UL508 safety rating, and are backed up by our industry-leading standard 4-year warranty.
Hope Industrial Systems is pleased to announce that all 15″, 17″, and 19″ models of our Panel Mount and Universal Mount monitors and touch screens have been tested and certified by Underwriters Laboratories to meet the demanding requirements of UL 50E. The UL 50E Type ratings are equivalent to what is more commonly referred to in our industry as NEMA standards (e.g. NEMA 12, NEMA 4, and NEMA 4X). While most suppliers “self-certify” to NEMA standards, we have chosen to engage UL for official confirmation for our 15″, 17″, and 19″ monitors, assuring our customers that an independent testing agency has completely tested those designs.
For the first time, Hope Industrial Systems is publishing public versions of many of our internal product reliability test reports on our web site. In the past, we made some of this information available only upon request. The test results shown in these reports simulate the kinds of environments found in process and factory floor locations, as well as the kind of conditions encountered when equipment is being transported and kept in storage.
