LBT-1212O | 12 Inch LED Industrial Open Frame Monitor

The LBT-1212O, 12.1(12) Inch Industrial LED Open Frame Monitor with a 4:3 Aspect ratio is one of Caltron’s more popular sizes and is a unique size because it has a higher resolution than most typical 4:3 aspect 12 inch monitors.  This 12.1 inch open frame monitor generally has an 800 x 600 resolution LCD panel, but in this specific model, not only is the resolution higher to deliver a much more crisp picture, but this unit also has greater viewing angles. 

What does the LBT-1212O have a high screen resolution?  The typical screen resolution for a 12 inch monitor is 800 x 600, but the LBT-1212O has a screen resolution of 1024 x 768.  With higher resolution, comes, higher viewing angles.  About 80o L/R and U/D, which means, that this unit, can be used, in a wide variety of places and applications.

How did the LBT-1212O get a higher resolution?  With the LED backlit LCD panel, the LCD panel itself is capable of getting an optimal resolution of 1024 x 768.  In most cases, it is usually dependent on whether the panel can handle the higher resolution or not, and in this case, the LCD panel can.

With an LED backlit panel, the unit is able to emit more brightness while using less energy to do so at the same time.  With a brighter screen, superior viewing angles and small footprint, this 12.1 inch open frame monitor is the ideal solution for any application that requires a 12 inch monitor.  A few applications that the unit can go into, would be instrumentation panels, control panels, Kiosks, ATMs or signage displays.  Just like all of Caltron’s other open frame monitors, this 12.1 inch monitor has a chassis that is milled from a CNC machine to ensure quality and reliability.
