HBT-1503O | 15 Inch High Bright LED Open Frame Monitor

A highly popular size that is used in many various types of applications is Caltron’s HBT-1503O, 15 Inch High Bright LED Open Frame Monitor.  This industrial open frame monitor is rated at 1,500 nits and is perfect to be integrated into a larger enclosure that needs to be set outdoors.  This monitor has an energy efficient panel and although it emits a really bright screen, it still saves energy. 

How does this HBT-1503O work in extreme environments?  An LED backlit panel typically has higher temperature ratings than a CCFL backlit panel and is capable of working in extreme temperature settings and with a sturdy chassis to house the components, when integrated, the end unit is capable of being placed in harsh environments.

Is it easy to integrate the 15 inch industrial open frame monitor?  The HBT-1503O has a very small mechanical footprint and since the chassis is so small, it makes it much easier to integrate the 15” industrial high bright monitor into any application. 

A few examples that the HBT-1503O, 15” sunlight readable monitor can be used for would be Kiosks, digital signage projects, control panels or instrumentation panels such as a CNCX machine.
