Stainless steel panel mount monitors built to withstand harsh conditions and washdown environments. The stainless steel monitors come in SUS 316 stainless steel and feature a fully IP66 rated dust-tight and waterproof design. Option available for a resistive-type touch screen, optical bonding, DVI or HDMI video input, and a 1000-nit high brightness LCD.
Stainless Steel - Full IP66 Rated
Acnodes’ stainless steel panel mount monitor line is offered in sizes ranging from 10.1 inches to 27 inches and comes with VGA video input and a Projected Capacitive type touch screen. These monitors are designed for demanding applications with high industrial requirements, such as in food processing or chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
REFERENCES Stainless Steel Types and HMI Applications For The Food Processing Industries There are many unique benefits associated with using stainless steel in a wide variety of projects and applications. Stainless steel contains low carbon with high chromium content. The chromium is the main trait that gives its unique corrosion-resistant characteristic. Due to the chromium content from the steel, the chromium-rich oxide film forms naturally on the metal surface. This is beneficial in the case of the surface being chemically or mechanically damaged, the steel is self-healing given even a small amount of oxygen exposure.
IP and NEMA Ratings – What Do They Mean? IP ratings are standards for electrical enclosures defined by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission). The rating refers to the degree of protection against water and dust provided by a computer's enclosure. The IP rating is expressed as a two-digit number (Example: IP-65). The first number designates protection from solids, while the second number designates protection from liquids. On the other hand, NEMA ratings are standards that are useful in defining the types of environments in which an electrical enclosure can be used. The NEMA rating system is defined by the NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturer Association), and frequently signifies a fixed enclosure’s ability to withstand certain environmental conditions.
Touch Screen Monitors - Overview A touch screen acts as an interface between humans and computers in an automation control unit. Unlike keyboards or mice, touch screens provide convenience and user-friendly access to receive information from one computer to another. Touch screens work by detecting touch points according to physical relations and are divided into three types: Resistive type, Capacitive type, and Acoustic or Infrared.
