TWINSBURG, OH – Pepperl+Fuchs 15 in. and 19 in. Industrial Flat Panel LCD Monitors are now part of the Emerson Alliance Partner Program. Available as general purpose displays or as a UL listed Class I/Div 2 device, these monitors are engineered to deliver reliable operation and long life in harsh application environments, and/or in applications demanding continuous duty operation. They are a true industrialized monitor, delivering the highest MTBF in the industry at over 550,000 hours. They come in a variety of mounting styles to suit varying application needs, and can even be combined with a Pepperl+Fuchs Bebco EPS purge system for Class I/Div. 1 hazardous environment mounting.
Pepperl+Fuchs Industrial Flat Panel Monitors are rated for use in temperatures ranging from -10° C to 55° C. They accept standard VGA or NTSC inputs from a PC or video camera source. Additionally, they can multi-sync to any standard video mode from 640×480 to 1600×1200, and widescreen 1680X1050, at scan rates from 60 to 75 Hz, without image distortion or flicker. These displays are powered from a 12 VDC external power supply to keep heat away from the monitor, maximizing reliability and operating life. Display options include touchscreen, transflective, stainless steel (NEMA4x) or black painted steel bezel.
Starting with an industrial grade LCD is only the first step to delivering a premiere-quality product. Additional ruggedizing attributes that make these a true industrial flat panel display solution include:
• Heavier gauge metal & wiring, corrosion protection
• Internal bulkhead wiring, gold plating, latching/tie downs
• Better shock/vibration specs, shock absorbing gaskets
• Higher temperature and humidity specs
• Brighter back lamps (up to 500 nits) and wider viewing angles
• Longevity/support/replaceable back lamps
• Full industrial agency ratings
An optional resistive touch screen is suitable for general purpose, and Ex-hazardous Class I/Div 2 environments. Resistive touch screens feature thin glass film bonded to the front user surface for superior protection against long term surface wear and incidental scuffs. This glass film also protects against the effects of corrosive chemicals and provides shatter protection from frontal impacts. The hardened resistive touch screen is interchangeable with the standard touch screen, and can be upgraded upon request.
A resistive touch screen also provides mouse emulation by applying a small amount of pressure on the desired location of the monitor screen. This allows the operator to use a finger, glove, stylus, etc. to initiate the touch screen functionality. There is also a self-calibration tool for precise adjustments. Pepperl+Fuchs’ touch screens have both a USB and Serial output for PC interfacing.
