Rugged USB data displays are water resistant

January 14, 2014 // By Julien Happich
Equipment located in public spaces needs to be hardened against rough use, abuse and vandalism. To survive, control panels and exposed components must be engineered to resist damage from the environment and equipment users. Many industrial environments can be just as hostile.

Storm Interface has released the Storm 5100 Series of toughened, water resistant, data displays with integral USB 2.0 interface. These robust, monochrome displays are suited for use in exposed or industrial environments. Bright white transflective display technology is securely encased within a sealed and impact resistant bezel. The bezel features a hard coated UV- and scratch-resistant, polycarbonate window.

Available in 20 character x 4 line, 20 character x 8 line or 128 x 64 pixel graphic versions these USB 2.0 display devices can be easily installed into any control panel or equipment enclosure. They require no liquid sealants or adhesives to achieve a toughened, sealed and weather resistant installation.

Offered in a range of eight different configurations/specifications, Storm 5100 Series Displays offer designers a ‘ready to use’ data display solution for a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications.
