Panel PC´s & Displays

Industrial displays can be found in various applications, from rack mount server halls to vehicle installations to military airplanes and helicopters. From small size displays up to enormous information displays. With or without touchpanel. 4:3 format, 16:9 format, stretched 16:3 format, even round – there are no standard sizes for LCD, TFT panels so you will find a wide spread of RECAB displays and Panel PC’s, although they all offer industrial long-term availability.

Industrial displays include TFT panels and interface boards offering a standard DP, DVI, HDMI or VGA interface, mounted in a housing of some type. These are typically panel or wall mounted, but in some applications, they are mounted via VESA arm onto a dashboard or machine, used as a Human Machine Interface (HMI).

What is a Panel PC?

A Panel PC is a device in which a TFT panel is incorporated into the same enclosure as the motherboard (or COM and Carrier) and other electronics, offering standard Ethernet, USB and serial interfaces. A Panel PC often incorporates touch screens for user interaction, but can also have programmable pushbuttons and dimming knob. Touchpanels integrated into displays and panel PC’s are available as 4, 5 or 7-wire resistive touch, Infrared (IR), Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW), as well as traditional Capacitive and Projective Capacitive Touch (PCAP) that enable modern multitouch functionality. Projective Capacitive Multitouch requires a front glass whose size and shape can be customized, as well as the color of the border and logo. For industrial and outdoor applications, you might also consider having your front glass coated for enhanced visibility. Anti-glare (AG), anti-reflective and anti-smudge (AS) are the most common.

Many options

Both Displays and Panel PC’s are available with different features suitable for different environments and applications. For example, a high brightness, sunlight-readable display for vehicle applications, or anti-glare multitouch for outdoor environments. RECAB offers models for your specific application, such as explosion-proof for installation in hazardous environments, e-mark or railway-approved for vehicle applications, as well as military grade displays, Smart Displays and Panel PC’s.
