The NUC (Next Unit of Computing) from Intel is a small single board computer kit made by Intel and intended for use in any location where a small, cool, and energy efficient yet somewhat powerful computer is required. Intel intends for the device to be used in most any application ranging from digital signage to industrial/commercial kiosks to home entertainment. We’ve had a number of customers ask about suitability of the NUC for use with our industrial touch screen and workstation products, so we thought we’d get our hands on one and take a look. (more…)

Displays and Touch Screens Built to Last

8-year-old Industrial Universal Mount Monitor

Universal Mount Monitor with a particularly hard life

Hope Industrial Displays are built to handle abuse of many forms. Our displays are used in a wide variety of extremely tough environments where they see everything from daily steam cleanings to chemical exposure to the occasional run-in with a forklift.

But every once in awhile our repairs department sees a particularly tortured product come in for repair.

Consider the following: this Universal Mount 19″ Touch Screen has been in service for nearly 7 years inside an industrial equipment paint booth. During this time, the monitor has been subjected to constant heat, paint over-spray, and dousing with solvents to keep the worst of the paint off of the touch screen’s acrylic surface. (more…)

In our last post we introduced our Raspberry Pi proof-of-concept project and outlined the physical components and setup required for using the Raspberry Pi as an industrial touch screen PC in a harsh environment. Please see our previous post for important information to consider before integrating a Raspberry Pi with our industrial touch screens.

In this post, we will show how easy it is to set up the Raspbian Operating System to work with a Hope Industrial touch screen without adding any third-party drivers. This how-to assumes a basic understanding of Linux command line use and text file editing. Feel free to contact us with any questions. (more…)

The Raspberry Pi is a small single-board computer originally created by the Raspberry Pi Foundation as an affordable tool for teaching computer science. Due to its low cost, ease of use, and broad community support, the Raspberry Pi is now being used in a variety of diverse settings with users installing them in everything from home automation systems to autonomous aircraft.

Most of our customers connect our touch screens and displays to full industrial or commercial PCs and thin clients for industrial HMI and SCADA applications. But with the popularity of the Raspberry Pi, we have had multiple customers ask about compatibility of our screens with the popular single-board device. (more…)

Announcing Third-Party IP66 Testing for Hope Industrial Products

Dust damage caused to a non-IP66 rated industrial monitor

Recently Hope Industrial sent several of our key products – our Panel Mount Monitors, Universal Mount Monitors, monitor-mounted KVM products, keyboards, and cover plates – through third-party IP66 environmental certification testing, and all of the products completed and passed the testing. Although our products had previously been tested and confirmed as NEMA 4X certified in years past, which also implied IP66 ratings were met, we wanted to ensure they fully meet the IP66 rating by using Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL), a trusted independent product safety certification organization, for the testing. (more…)
