Industrial Monitor Frequently Asked Questions


Do I need to buy cables for my Hope Industrial Systems monitor?

Our Panel and Rack Mount Monitors include standard 1.8 m video and touch screen USB cables. Touch screen serial cables are available but must be ordered separately. Cable lengths for Universal Mount Monitors are specified at the time of order.

Longer cables and KVM Extenders are available to extend signals up to 300 m. See our KVM Extender and Cable Options pages for more information.


How far can I extend my monitor away from the computer?

To extend a display or touch screen long distances from the computer both video (VGA) and the touch screen signals (USB or serial) must be considered. Our line of Industrial KVM Extenders can extend both VGA video and USB (or serial) signals up to 300 m from the computer using a standard CATx cable (lower cost 60 m models are also available).

When shorter distances are sufficient (typically less than 15 m), simple long DVI/HDMI, VGA, USB, and Serial cables are also available. See our Cable Options page for more information.


Are your monitors RoHS and WEEE compliant?

RoHS is discussed further on our CE Certification and RoHS page. WEEE is discussed in detail on our REACH and WEEE Compliances page.
