FBT-0842O | 8 Inch LCD Industrial Open Frame Monitor

DISCONTINUED: Replaced by the LBT-0842O and HBT-0842O

Caltron’s FBT-0842O, 8.4(8) Inch Industrial LCD Open Frame Monitor comes in a 4:3 aspect ratio for viewing.  This unit comes with a 220 nits brightness LCD panel and is sufficient for any indoor application. 

Why is the 8” open frame monitor considered a small form factor display?  This model is considered a small form factor display because of the small space that it occupies when integrated into a larger application.  Usually small form factor relates to the amount of real estate that the unit needs to be integrated into another enclosure. 

Will there ever be a design change on the chassis of the industrial 8 inch open frame?  Caltron’s engineering team designed the chassis to accommodate any LCD panel revisions.  The chassis will always remain consistent throughout the lifetime of the monitor, even if there are LCD panel revisions, which happen more often than not. 

There are many applications that the FBT-0842O, 8 inch LCD open frame monitor can be used for.  A few applications include: CNC machines, Kiosks, instrumentation panel displays, control panels, medical equipment, ATM machines and photo booths.
