At Hope Industrial Systems, our goal is to provide exceptional products enhanced by superior sales, support and service. Since customer relationships are so important to us, we recently sat down with our Sales Manager, Mike McGraw, and discussed some questions we know many are asking about Hope Industrial Systems. Here’s what he had to say.
Hope Industrial Systems is excited to introduce our new Industrial Full-Travel Keyboards with Capacitive Touchpad. These new keyboards are available in our four keyboard enclosure options:
- Monitor-Mounted – mount directly to the bottom of our Universal Mount Monitors
- Benchtop – place on a bench or table top
- Panel Mount – mount in a panel or other surface
- Folding Wall Mount – attach to any vertical surface; fold out of the way when not in use
As December comes to a close, we want to take some time to reflect on another great year at Hope Industrial Systems. Our company has experienced growth in a number of ways this year.
“How well do your touch screens work with Linux?” is a question we get very often. While the short answer is always “perfectly!” there is more than one way to support and align our touch screens with Linux operating systems, and which to choose often depends on the particular circumstances of a given application. In this article we will provide a high level overview of some of the more common methods for supporting Linux.
We are pleased to announce the availability of our combined Conduit/Compression Gland Cable Exit Plate. This new option provides our rugged, fully-sealed conduit option (generally used between our Universal Mount Display and an enclosure or pedestal) with the flexibility of our Compression Gland for connecting nearby peripherals like a barcode scanner or mouse.
We are happy to introduce our new line of 19.5″ widescreen industrial monitors and touch screens. Complementing our existing 22″ and 23″ wide screen displays, these new models bring full 1080p (1920×1080) resolution in a compact 19″ screen format.
All Hope Industrial Universal Mount Monitors are fully enclosed and feature a standard cable exit interface to allow the cables to exit the display enclosure while maintaining an IP/NEMA-rated seal.
Since every customer’s mounting requirements are different, we provide a variety of cable exit plate options including compression glands, conduit, and blank cover plates (with pre-drilled pilot holes).
Since their release nearly 15 years ago, our Industrial Monitor Pedestal Mounts have been one of our most popular display mounting options. Combined with an industrial touch screen, keyboard, and PC Enclosure, the pedestal base allows placement of a full HMI workstation anywhere on the factory floor.
Many of our customers have found industrial applications for the Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing) line of small form factor PCs. While these units do not have many of the features usually associated with industrial designs (no legacy I/O, no case heat sinks), the fact that they are very small, relatively low cost, and only sip power make them appealing in some situations.
