Multi-touch monitor line expands

Kontron's OmniView multi-touch monitors aim to reflect a durable industrial design.


The new Kontron monitors offer projective-capacitive multi-touch functionality in a 16:9 wide-screen design with joint-free glass surfaces. The new industrial monitors featuring IP65 front protection are also interoperable with any industrial PC.

Kontron expands the OmniView multi-touch monitor series. Courtesy: Kontron.Via the long-distance interface for DVI-D and USB, the OmniView industrial monitors can be installed at a distance of up to 30 meters, or 100 feet, from the host, which allows for flexible GUI installations on machinery and the shop floor. With its high luminance of up to 300cd and matt glass front, the monitors offer readability in difficult lighting conditions.

Depending on the monitor chassis, mounting options for the new industrial monitors in 21.5, 18.5, and 15.6 formats are either panel mount (installation) or Vesa mount (stand-alone). The monitors also boast a high level of connectivity. With USB for touchscreen control as well as DisplayPort, DVI-I and VGA connections, the monitors can not only be hooked up to the latest systems but also to legacy products.
