9/2/2003 - The KFM series of splash-proof LCD monitors from Kontron Embedded Computers now includes three new versions with diagonal screen sizes of 15", 18.1" and 21.3". The front sides of these monitors are IP65 (NEMA 4/12) protected and the displays are outstanding in terms of their compact design and high resistance to shock, vibration and EMI. The front panels are finished in either powdered or stainless steel and the LCDs are covered with a 3 mm thick anti-reflective window.
Flicker-free LVDS image quality is delivered in 16 million colors with a brightness of 250 cd/m2. The four video inputs (VGA analog, DVI, S-Video, Composite Video) are compatible with all of today's commonly used video data signals. A resistive touch screen option also is available. Power can be supplied either directly from the mains via an internal power supply or using an external 24 V DC mains adapter. The monitors are certified according to CE, FCC and GOST-R standards. The delivery time is three weeks and a long-term availability of up to five years can be prearranged with Kontron. Application-specific front panels can be made to order and 19" panels for rack mounting also are available upon request.
The monitor cable linking the display to the industrial PC may be up to ten meters long, which allows greater flexibility when installing an industrial system. Since Kontron also supplies high-quality industrial PCs such as the Box-PC SC-35, SC-85 and SC85S, customers are able to obtain a complete solution from a single source.
The degree of protection offered by the front side of a KFM monitor is IP65. By definition, this means that the front side is able to withstand the pressure of water from a jet nozzle with an inner diameter of 6.3 mm at a volume flow of 12.5 liters per minute, applied from a distance of 2.5 to 3 meters, for a duration of at least 3 minutes. Therefore, KFM monitors are popular in industrial applications such as in the food industry, where production areas are pressure hosed several times a day to maintain cleanliness and hygiene. Other potential applications include POS systems and information terminals.
