Hope Industrial Systems is pleased to introduce our new line of Thin Client Ready Industrial Operator Stations. These self-contained workstations are available with 15″, 17″, or 19″ LCD monitors housed in NEMA-rated black powder-coated or stainless steel enclosures and provide a sealed, clean and cool operating environment for a user-supplied thin client or small form factor PC. Optional features include NEMA-rated touch screens, industrial keyboards and pointing devices, and tilt/swivel yoke mounts.
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 our new Accessory Mounting Brackets for attaching thin clients, small PCs, KVM extenders, or other devices to the rear of our 17″ and 19″ Panel Mount monitors.
Hope Industrial Systems is pleased to announce we are shipping our new short-travel membrane keyboard with touchpad. With 102 alphanumeric keys, 12 function keys, a numeric keypad, and touchpad pointing device, it offers all the functionality required for industrial applications. Cables are routed up through the base of the monitor, exiting the enclosure along with the video and touch screen cables. The keyboard is available in PS2 or USB versions and it has been designed to attach to all Hope Industrial Systems Universal Mount monitors with no gap in between the monitor and keyboard. The keyboard is sealed to NEMA 4/4X standards and carries an industry leading 4-year parts and labor 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.
Hope Industrial Systems is pleased to introduce our new full line of heavy industrial arm mounts. Options range from solid wall yoke to fully-articulating arms. Each arm mount is NEMA 4X rated and is constructed of either heavy-gauge brushed 304 stainless steel or black powder-coated steel. All of the wall arms come with our standard 4-year warranty and 30-day total satisfaction guarantee.
Hope Industrial Systems is pleased to announce our new full-travel rubber overlay keyboard with button pointer. With 103 keys, 20 function keys, a separate numeric keypad, and button pointer with mouse buttons, it offers all of the functionality required for industrial applications.

It has been designed to attach to all Hope Industrial Systems Universal Mount monitors with no gap in between the monitor and keyboard and is UL certified to meet NEMA 4 and 4X standards. The keyboard is available in PS2 or USB versions and carries a 4-year parts and labor warranty.
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.
PC-based HMI has become increasingly common in the Industrial Automation market. We at Hope Industrial Systems believe that in most cases, it is not necessary to place a fully-ruggedized PC directly on the factory floor. These systems are generally vastly more expensive and more difficult to maintain than comparable office-grade computers and servers.
