As we have mentioned in other posts, all of the KVM extender models we sell use the Adderlink X2 Silver internal electronics. We package this device in various industrial enclosures, but also sell it stand-alone.
As of March 24th, Hope Industrial Systems is represented on all 7 continents! We sold our touchscreens to our first Antarctica-based customer on Thursday.
Our engineering group objected to posting pictures of such an early prototype, but we are really excited about our new keyboard design: the industrial 4-position folding keyboard.
Many Hope customers place server or desktop class computer equipment in a clean, safe, IT closet, while exposing only our rugged industrial touchscreens and workstations to the rigors of the factory floor. To make this work, we provide a variety of long cable options, and even Industrial KVM Extenders that can push those signals all the way to 1000′ away from the PC. This post discusses these cabling options in detail.
We are wrapping up our trip to Orlando, FL for the 2011 Automation Technology South Expo (ATX South). The weather has been great, as you would expect central Florida to be in March.
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.
Many industrial environments have invisible airborne substances, like dust and moisture, that can damage electronic equipment. There are other less common substances that are found in specific industrial environments that can be even more damaging. Sulphur is one of those substances. Airborne sulphur uses moisture in the air and is corrosive to the copper and silver commonly found in the conductive traces on circuit boards, in LCD circuits and resistive touch screens. All of these components are found in the construction of an industrial lcd monitor.
A virtual trade show demo of Hope Industrial’s line of industrial Panel Mount Monitors and Panel Mount Touch screens. Recorded at the International Poultry Expo 2011 in Atlanta, GA.
Hope Industrial Systems enjoyed another successful International Poultry Expo last week. We’ve attended this show for several years now and we’re always pleased with the quality of our leads, as well as the opportunity to meet several of our customers face-to-face. It also helps that we are located only 25 miles from the Georgia World Congress Center.
