Parker Releases New Industrial Monitor

PHM Flat Panel Industrial Monitor line includes 15" and 17" TFT displays with Stainless Steel Bezel option for 15" models.

Milford, Ohio, September 1, 2006 - Parker Automaton-CTC has announced the release of a new Industrial Flat Panel Monitor family with 15" and 17" TFT display models. The CTC-designed and manufactured PHM monitor line offers an affordable, NEMA-4/4x rated display solution for a wide range of plant-floor applications, including a stainless-steel bezel (15" display) version that is ideal for sanitary and clean room environments.

All PHM units come equipped with an analog resistive touchscreen and standard serial output, along with a standard connection to any PC through analog RGB 15-pin DSUB input. These monitors feature a unique auto-power sensing function that automatically activates the unit when a video signal is detected and shuts down when video is not present. PHM monitors are 24 VDC powered, with an option for an external AC adapter.

With a 2.8", slim-profile backshell and light weight, clip-mount design, both the 15" and 17" display units are easily mounted within a variety of cabinet and swing-arm configurations. Each PHM is packaged for the needs of industrial users and undergoes a battery of environmental and operational tests. This includes the ability to withstand harsh chemical, shock and vibration conditions.

A stainless-steel bezel option is available on PHM15A 15" display systems. This option provides these monitors with an exposed front that is advantageous for maintaining sanitary and cleanroom conditions in environments such as food processing, pharmaceutical, medical device manufacturing and semiconductor manufacturing.

This new flat panel industrial monitor family is an excellent complement to CTC's "headless," or non-display, PowerStation HPC industrial PCs and HPX workstations with InteractX HMI award-winning HMI software. Whether combining PHM monitors with CTC non-display PowerStations or a third-party PC, these industrial-hardened displays provide a durable plant-floor solution for situations where a remote display is preferred over an integrated, panel-mount PC.
