DISCONTINUED: Replaced by the LBT-1212O or HBT-1212O or LWT-121O

A popular size monitor that Caltron provides is the FBT-1212O, 12.1(12) Inch Industrial Open Frame LCD Monitor.  This unit comes with a 4:3 aspect viewing ratio and is perfect for both indoor and outdoor applications. 

Why is this industrial 12” monitor good for both indoor and outdoor applications? With a panel brightness of 400 nits, the FBT-1212O is great for indoor applications because it will shine bright and is bright enough to shine brightly in outdoor environments with proper shading.

What kind of applications can the FBT-1212O be used in?  A few examples that the industrial 12.1 inch monitor can be used in would be CNC machines, industrial equipment requiring displays, Kiosks, control panels, photo booths, ATM machines, medical displays and digital signage applications.

The FBT-1212O chassis is milled from a CNC machine to ensure quality and uniform shape throughout the process.  With this process, the monitor will consistently maintain the same mechanical dimensions for the lifetime of the unit, which helps to ease the worry for integrators and designers.
