4-Year Warranty Badge for Hope Industrial Systems

New Standard 4-Year Warranty for Hope Industrial Products

4-Year Warranty Badge for Hope Industrial SystemsEffective immediately, HIS is increasing our standard warranty to 4 years. And, it’s retroactive – all products we have shipped since October 23, 2015 are covered. All other warranty terms stay the same.

We’ve shipped over 125,000 monitors since announcing the industry-first 3-year warranty in 2001 and the good news for our customers (and for us) is that our products rarely fail on their own. But now you have the assurance that, if one does, you are covered for 48 months! Read More

One of the most common questions received by our Tech Support group is how to calibrate the touch screen, usually during the initial installation. To help users through the process, we’ve created this step-by-step guide for Microsoft Windows users.

Depending on how far off your alignment is, it might be necessary to temporarily connect a mouse to perform these steps.

These instructions apply to Windows versions 7, 8, and 10 when using the USB touch screen interface – there may be minor differences depending on your version.
