8 Inch High Bright LED LCD Open Frame Monitor

Caltron’s HBT-0842O, 8.4 (8) Inch High Bright LED Open Frame Monitor is the smallest of the sunlight readable monitor series.  This monitor has a 4:3 aspect ratio for viewing and has a screen bright enough to endure the elements of the sun. 

How bright of a screen do you need to have to be considered sunlight readable?  The 8 inch high bright monitor is rated at 1,000 nits, which is perfect for outdoor applications and bright enough to display clearly when placed in an outdoor environment. 

Does this industrial open frame monitor leave a big footprint?  The 8.4 inch high bright monitor is extremely thin and lightweight, but designed with all industrial grade parts and components to ensure the durability of the unit overall. 

What happens if there is an LCD panel revision?  Caltron’s engineers have designed the chassis in a way that it can adapt to display panel revisions, without altering the mechanical dimensions and active viewing area.  This helps to ensure that designers and integrators will have no worries when designing an 8.4 inch industrial high bright LED open frame monitor into an application.

The HBT-0842O, 8.4” high bright open frame monitor has a housing that is constructed with sturdy steel that is milled from a CNC machine.  Some application examples would be an outdoor Kiosk, digital signage display or instrumentation panel.
