Calibrating a Hope Industrial Touch Screen on a Raspberry Pi

Hope Industrial UM22 Touchscreen and Keyboard with Raspberry Pi internally integrated

We have many customers who use our Industrial Touch Screens and Workstations as a rugged, wash-down capable front-end for a simple Raspberry Pi computer.  Over the years we have written several articles about ways to both physically mount and install/calibrate the touch screen using the Raspbian OS.  We’ve also written some general Linux overview articles that review the various ways to use our displays with Linux.

The Raspbian OS has evolved a bit and some of the methods we previously mentioned no longer work as written.  Most importantly, newer versions now include libinput instead of evdev.  Here is an updated version of our recommended method for using any Hope Industrial touch screen with the latest versions of Raspbian 9 Stretch (kernel 4.9).


New Pre-Built Conduit/Cable Assemblies

Hope Industrial Systems is happy to announce our pre-built conduit, cable, and cover plate assemblies for use with our fully enclosed Universal Mount Monitors are now available in all international markets. Because configurations are now pre-assembled, we will be lowering prices on all conduit assemblies.

Conduit Cable Assembly Options

Sealed flexible conduit is our most popular cable exit option since it provides an easy connection, allows repositioning of the display, and meets full IP65/66 (NEMA 4/4X) wash-down requirements. Our conduit assemblies are available in a variety of conduit/cable lengths to accommodate any application. (more…)

Thin Client / Small PC Workstation with Dell Box PC 3000

Hope Industrial Systems is pleased to announce that our Thin Client / Small PC Enclosure models have been updated to include pre-drilled mounting points for the Dell Box PC 3000. The compact size, efficient thermal design and high temperature rating of the Box PC 3000 make it an ideal fit for our Industrial Small Form Factor PC Enclosures. The Dell Box PC 3000 is maintained by Dell’s industry-leading customer support and service.

Our Small PC Enclosure can be mounted in a number of ways and combined with our Universal Mount Monitors and Industrial Keyboards to create a full stand-alone workstation for any industrial application, including those in full wash-down environments. You can easily complete your workstation with the Dell Box PC 3000 and Dell mounting bracket (Dell part no. 575-BBKB) by attaching the mounting bracket to the existing mounting points on the enclosure door.

  • Monitor-Mounted – mount directly to the bottom of our Universal Mount Monitors
  • Benchtop – place on a bench or table top
  • Panel Mount – mount in a panel or other surface
  • Folding Wall Mount – attach to any vertical surface; fold out of the way when not in use


PC Enclosures Pre-Configured for the Dell Box PC 5000

Industrial PC Workstation with Dell Box PC 5000

We are excited to announce that our line of Industrial PC Enclosures has been updated with pre-drilled mounting points for the Dell Box PC 5000. The compact, fanless design and high heat handling make the Dell Box PC 5000 embedded computers a perfect fit for use in our PC Enclosures.

When combined with one of our industrial Universal Mount Monitors, industrial keyboards, and pedestal or wall mounts, the PC Enclosure and Dell Box PC 5000 creates a full NEMA 4x, IP65/66 rated workstation suited for wash-down environments. Installing the Dell Box PC 5000 into the PC Enclosure is a breeze: attach the Dell mounting bracket (Dell part no. 575-BBKC) using the pre-drilled mount points and use the Velcro tie-down strap to secure the Dell DC power supply. Heat rise is negligible inside the enclosure when used with our optional cooling kit (HIS part no. MK-PC10-STD).

Comparing Compression Gland Cable Exit Plate Options

NEMA 2 (IP22) (top) and NEMA 4/4X (IP65/66) (bottom) Cable Exit Cover Plate Options

All Hope Industrial Universal Mount Monitors are fully enclosed and feature a standard cable exit interface to allow the cables to exit the display enclosure while maintaining an IP/NEMA-rated seal.

Since every customer’s mounting requirements are different, we provide a variety of cable exit plate options including compression glands, conduit, and blank cover plates (with pre-drilled pilot holes).

Our compression cable exit plates are available in two different types depending on the final enclosure environmental rating required by the customer: NEMA 2 (IP22) or NEMA 4/4X (IP65/66). While these cover plates appear similar once fit to a Universal Mount Display, they are fairly different in design and application. (more…)

Combined with an industrial touch screen, keyboard, and PC Enclosure, the pedestal base allows placement of a full HMI workstation anywhere on the factory floor.
