Advantech Upgrades 15-Inch Flat Panel Monitors
Brighter, longer life for the new FPM-2150GA and FPM-2150GA-R
Cincinnati, Ohio (February 23, 2005) - Advantech Corporation, Industrial Automation Group announced today that their line of 15-inch flat panel monitors, part number FPM-2150G, is being phased out and replaced with a brighter, longer lasting model, the FPM-2150GA. The resistive touch-screen model, FPM-2150G-R, has also been upgraded.
FPM-2150GA and FPM-2150GA-R are ruggedized industrial flat panel monitors which comply with the NEMA4/IP65 standard. Their metal enclosures enable them to be panel mounted, rack mounted & VESA mount compatible. The FPM-2150GA and FPM-2150GA-R will survive ambient temperature up to 50 degrees Celsius, far-beyond commercial-type plastic flat panel monitors.
The FPM-2150GA and FPM-2150GA-R have been upgraded to a brightness of 350 cd/m2 (from 250 cd/m2 in previous models), and a backlight lifetime of 50,000 hours (increased from 30,000 hours). The form-factor of the new products is the same as the old, so direct-replacement is easy for system integrators with projects using the phased-out model.
"Engineers are using our displays in more varied environments everyday," says George Liao, HMI Product Manager for Advantech, Industrial Automation Group. "We felt this upgrade was necessary to stay competitive in the ever-growing industrial HMI market."
The FPM-2150GA has a list price of $1,115 and the FPM-2150GA-R (resistive touch-screen model) has a list price of $915. Both are available for purchase directly from Advantech by visiting eAutomationPro.com.
