Caltron’s LWT-101O: Easy to Integrate

10 Inch Touchscreen Monitors Designed with the customer in Mind

The LWT-101O 10” touchscreen monitor’s installation is so easy, it’s hard to believe it can perform so many tasks so well.

Caltron Industries, a leader in the development of lightweight, wide-screen monitors over the past 20 years, has designed the LWT-101O for the convenience of equipment engineers facing both budget and time constraints.


LWT-101O series video introduction

Your design staff can appreciate the straightforward open-frame design, consisting of a strong metal housing with no enclosure, making the monitor “drop-in ready” for integration into medical, pharmaceutical and vending machine applications. A hefty 2-millimeter metal tray provides durable support for the LCD panel, even with around-the-clock use.

Because Caltron’s open-frame concept does not change from one generation to the next, the future addition of any model from the LWT-101O series of 10 inch touch monitors always involves the same simple process.

The LWT-101O also features a choice of resistive touch or five-point projected capacitive touch technologies, both supported by Linux, Mac, and Windows. P-Cap, growing in popularity, offers high noise immunity and works well even when its industrial or medical end users are wearing gloves.

The touchscreen monitor’s LED backlighting reduces energy usage by as much as 20 percent and offers superior screen resolution. Unlike CCFL backlights, LED technology is also environmentally safe because it employs no harmful mercury.

The LWT-101O comes equipped with standard video graphic array and HDMI inputs, but also can be customized with additional inputs, including analog audio inputs.

With outstanding brightness and resolution, a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:10 and screen viewing angles of 160 degrees both left to right and top to bottom, the LWT-101O was built for both indoor and outdoor applications. The LCD panel can be quickly modified for optimal viewing by adjusting four screws on the LCD panel’s sub-assembly.

Caltron Introduces Groundbreaking 12-Inch HMI Monitor Design

Caltron Industries has introduced the LBT-1212OC, a groundbreaking 12-inch touch screen monitor that features major improvements in optics, assembly, and touch-screen capability.


The LBT-1212OC touch screen monitor is built for heavy-duty human machine interface applications such as gaming, retail, interactive kiosks, ATMs, and healthcare equipment. Caltron has incorporated “projected capacitive” – or P-Cap – touchscreen technology into the LBT-1212OC, which provides for multi-finger touch capability and bright, clear displays superior to those of touch technologies such as restive and surface acoustic wave.

The P-Cap interface is also well-suited to resist water and dust so it can be used for both indoor functions and outdoor applications such as ticket dispensers.

Display resolution of Caltron’s new monitor is 1024×768, higher than the 800×600 of other monitors. The improved resolution and palm-sized active interact area allows more information to be displayed on the screen compared to other 12-inch monitors.

Caltron Industries, a leading manufacturer of innovative open-frame monitors for nearly 20 years, has also engineered the LBT-1212OC to be “drop-in ready,” or easily integrated into various industrial systems for shorter assembly and production times.

Other features of the improved resolution screen include:

  • Fanless technology that distributes heat through ventilation slots and is quieter than monitors cooled by fans.
  • Better optic specs. With a brightness peak level of 400 candlelight, the monitor display is easier to view in any light conditions.
  • Industrial-grade LCD panels with product life spans of three to five years, meaning fewer costly equipment modifications. Touch sensors and electronic components in the LBT-1212OC are also commercial quality, and the structure itself is made of double layers of metal.
  • Backward compatibility with older formats. Monitor upgrades are possible without replacing entire systems.

Caltron Industries was a pioneer in the industrial conversion from tube monitors to thinner, lighter LCD technology in the late 1990s. Caltron products are built to last and designed to save production and replacement costs.

Every Caltron product includes engineering support to ensure Caltron’s monitors are successfully integrated into existing systems and the customer is satisfied.

These touch screen monitors also feature LCD panels with robust touch sensor capabilities enabling users to easily and quickly interface with the monitors. The electrical components used in the Caltron industrial monitors are of the highest standard available.  They are capable of withstanding a variety of environmental conditions without damage.

High Resolution PCap Display for Better User Experience

With a high resolution 1024×768 display, which is higher than other similar monitors in the market, the Caltron 12 inch industrial touch screen monitor is a favorite among healthcare equipment manufacturers and those in the industrial control sector. The 12” screen featured in the monitor is also an appreciated aspect for these industries, displaying more information than on similar equipment screens.

The LBT-1212OC monitor’s PCap interface allows for better multi-finger touch capability when compared to the Resistive and Surface Acoustic Wave touchscreens – which are featured in other brands’ touch screens. This PCap feature is especially perfect for users in the retail payment and gaming sector, where the screens are highly interactive in those applications.  Medical applications also like the ability to use the display while wearing gloves.

Another unique feature of this monitor is that it is fanless. Instead of requiring a cooling fan to remove excess heat, the LBT-1212OC gets adequate ventilation from slots and holes designed strategically within the monitor’s frame. Being fanless is a great advantage for quieter operations of the screen, smaller footprint for board and equipment space, also extends the product lifespan.

Easy for users and great for equipment manufacturers, the LBT-1212OC is a great option for ATM’s, shopping kiosk machines, medical equipment, and information booths.
