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.
Our products aren’t finished until our customers say they are. We don’t introduce new products to our line of industrial monitors and touch screens until we feel they are as good as they can get but there’s always room for improvement. We listen closely and continuously review our products to see how we can make them even better.
The disaster in Japan has rattled the world. Hope Industrial Systems, Inc. expresses its sincere condolences to all those affected by the tragedy and asks that everyone keep the Japanese people in their thoughts.
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.
