Since their release nearly 15 years ago, our Industrial Monitor Pedestal Mounts have been one of our most popular display mounting options. 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.

Available with either locking casters with durable 3” wheels or with adjustable leveling feet, these floor stand kits can be used with any of our 4” x 4” pedestals, and can even be used to retrofit existing pedestals for free-standing use.

Many of our customers have found industrial applications for the Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing) line of small form factor PCs. While these units do not have many of the features usually associated with industrial designs (no legacy I/O, no case heat sinks), the fact that they are very small, relatively low cost, and only sip power make them appealing in some situations.

Tethered Stylus Options for Resistive Industrial Touch Screens

PDA Panache’s large (VTET), medium (MTET), and small (BTET) tethered styluses.

PDA Panache’s large (VTET), medium (MTET), and small (BTET) tethered styluses.

As we’ve talked about in other posts, our touch screen displays use resistive touch technology because of its many benefits to the industrial user. One of the most important of these is the fact that resistive sensors are pressure sensitive, which means that a gloved hand, a stylus, or most anything else can trigger a touch.

While most industrial HMI applications use interface screens designed to simply press with your finger (meaning, large buttons), we have some customers who require a stylus for increased accuracy. Over the years, we’ve recommended PDA Panache styluses to many users. We’ve found the company’s simple and sturdy designs well suited for many industrial environments.

We’ve tested many PDA Panache styluses but we generally recommend the VTET (large), MTET (medium), and BTET (small) models. Continue Reading…

Intel NUC i7 in Test Enclosure

Last year we reviewed and tested the Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing) single-board computer to determine its suitability for use with our industrial touch screen and workstation products. The model we tested at that time was the D54250WYK, which was launched in late 2013 and featured an i5 processor.

Based on the success of the earlier models, Intel has continued to improve the NUC line and recently released the first i7-powered model using a 5th generation Intel Core i7-5557U processor. Continue Reading…
