Industrial monitors are engineered for extreme environments
25 March 2010
Pepperl+Fuchs has introduced the VisuNet DM series monitors that deliver reliable operation and long life (550,000 hours MTBF) in harsh application environments. Vusunet DM monitors carry both the UL and CE mark, and are available for general purpose or Class I/Div 2 environments. Both touch screen and transflective options are available.
VisuNet DM monitors are available in 10in, 12in, 15in, 18in and 19in sizes, and are rated for use in temperatures ranging from -10° C to 60° C. They accept standard VGA or NTSC (or PAL) inputs from a PC or video camera source. Additionally, they can multi-sync to any standard video mode from 640x480 to 1280 x 1024 at scan rates from 60 to 75 Hz, without image distortion or flicker. The units are 12Vdc powered from an external power supply to keep heat away from the monitor.
These monitors are available with an optional UL Listed, 5-wire resistive touch screen suitable for general purpose, and Ex-hazardous Class I/Div 2 environments. A resistive touch screen 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. For more harsh environments, there is also a hardened resistive touch screen available. A self-calibration tool is provided for precise adjustments. For PC interface, our touch screens have both a USB and Serial output to be connected to the host PC.
An additional option is a hardened resistive touch screen, where a thin glass layer is bonded to the front user surface providing superior protection against long term surface wear and incidental scuffs. This glass layer 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.
