HBT-1704O | 17 Inch High Bright LED Open Frame Monitor

Caltron’s HBT-1704O, 17 Inch High Bright LED Open Frame monitor is a sunlight readable outdoor, 4:3 aspect ratio monitor.

How bright is Caltron’s HBT-1704O?  The reason the 17” high bright monitor is considered a high bright is because the brightness rating of the screen is rated at 1,500 nits and to be considered sunlight readable, a monitor should be at least 1,000 nits.

How much real estate does the 17” high bright monitor require?  Caltron’s 17” sunlight readable open frame monitor requires minimal space.  Although it is industrial grade, the thickness of the unit is only 1.97 inches, so very little room is required when integrating the monitor into an enclosure.

Caltron ensures that the open frame monitor will remain consistent throughout the lifetime of the unit.  By ensuring that the chassis will remain consistent, it makes it more easy for integrators and designers to integrate or design in the HBT-1704O, 17” high bright open frame monitor into applications such as outdoor Kiosks, CNC machines, control panels and other such industrial applications.
