Acnodes Corporation's New Ruggedized Wide Range Working Temperature Open Frame Panel Mount Monitor Series

Acnodes Corporation is proud to announce the new professional LCD display series for outdoor applications: the PM-S, ruggedized open frame panel mount monitors with wide range temperatures that range in sizes from 5.7 inches to 17 inches. The PM-S line is distinguished by its ability to operate efficiently in harsh environmental conditions such as heat, humidity, cold and high brightness. One of the limitations of some earlier LCD technologies was their restricted temperature range, not so with the PM-S series. A typical LCD display in the market is usually rated between 0C to 50C as their normal operating temperatures; the PM-S is specified for operation in -30C up to +80C. With wide operating temperatures, the PM-S series can secure display stability even in extreme heat or cold environments or large temperature fluctuations. This new line of products offer an optional IP65 rated / NEMA4 dust and water resistance enclosures that protect it from the risk of damage when exposed to foreign objects such as falling dirt or windblown dust in addition to rain, snow, ice and water.

The PM-S series was developed to deliver and present vivid picture quality in any outdoor location directly exposed to the sun. The PM-S series provides 350 to 700-nit luminance for optimum viewability in direct sunlight and will maintain this luminance level for 35,000 hours or more. They feature an optional Anti-Reflective / Anti-Glare glass for increased protection against harsh impacts and scratches while enhancing viewability in outdoor venues by reducing reflection. All units are available with an optional built-in resistive or capacitive type touch screen for interactive applications.

The PM-S series Open Frame designs are perfect for integrating into kiosks, or rear-mounting in walls or panels. They provide easy mounting options and offers rugged metal housing. These PM-S monitors also offer an unmatched array of monitor options, so monitors can easily be custom configured to meet individual customer requirements. For example, sunlight readable, SV, AV or HDMI inputs, DC powered, light or motion sensor, various touch screen types, and so on.
