The Versatile, Open-Frame LWT-185O Series
With Caltron Industries’ line of LWT-185O touchscreen monitors, the upgrades are many, yet the installation is simple.
In previous years, industrial users sought a touchscreen monitor solution that was easy to integrate into an existing system. Caltron responded with its renowned open-frame concept. Due to the “drop-in” design, engineers were able to quickly and efficiently install our monitors, regardless of size, into their systems.
Clients were assured that future upgrades would be equally easy because the open-frame design remains consistent from generation to generation.
Today, industrial clients ask for a touchscreen monitor that is easily customized and accommodates a variety of budgets. The adaptable 18.5-inch LWT-185O is Caltron’s answer to those requests.
Value-Added Choices Make for Tailored Touch Screen Solutions
Caltron’s list of value-added options for the LWT-185O touch screen include:
• Optical bonding, a dramatic advance in screen visibility technology. Optical bonding involves laminating, then curing, a special glass cover onto the touchscreen monitor’s LDC panel. The tight seal virtually eliminates moisture and dust accumulation and greatly cuts down on glare, from either sunlight or ambient indoor light.
• Zero brightness control, which saves energy by dramatically lowering screen illumination.
• A preset privacy filter which narrows the viewing angle. Only users directly in front are able to fully view the monitor screen.
• Anti-vandal switches, for resistance to damage from humans or the weather.
• Additional HDMI and analog audio inputs, if more system connections are needed.
LED Backlighting, Sturdy Metal Construction Are Standard Features
These standard features make the LWT-185O line a leader among industrial wide touchscreen monitors:
• A 2 millimeter-thick metal tray that provides outstanding stability at the point where the LCD panel is mounted.
• Ventilation slots that dissipate heat more efficiently than fans.
• LED enhanced backlighting, which saves on energy usage and is superior to conventional cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) backlighting. CCFL monitors employ mercury gas, which poses health risks in users.
• An easily adjusted sub-assembly. Twisting four screws alters the distance between the front bezel?? and the surface of the LCD panel.
Touch Technology Options Include P-Cap, Resistive
Various applications call for different touch technologies. LWT-185O models are equipped with these touch choices:
• Projected Capacitive, or P-Cap. With this choice, you can manipulate images by using more than one finger at once. Because human machine interface applications are increasingly located outside or in bright environments where readability can be a problem, Caltron’s LWT-185OC model employs P-Cap, along with the optical bonding option. The LWT 185OC, which also features 270 nits of brightness, is ideal for use in a bright, outdoor setting.
• Five-wire Resistive responds to the touch of a gloved or bare finger, or a stylus-like object. Resistive costs less and consumes less energy. Pressure-sensitive resistive technology implements a tough, polycarbonate-coated screen that helps prevent scratching.
