There are many models that Caltron offers for open frame monitors and open frame touch screen monitors. Caltron specializes in a certain type of monitor that is catered to OEM applications. Many applications will typically try to use a consumer grade touch screen desktop monitor that is sold off the shelf of any electronics store. In some cases this might possibly work, if the application is simple enough and requires little to no integration whatsoever.
The model that we will go over today is likely one of Caltron’s most popular models, the LBT-1503OTEARU, 15 Inch Resistive Touch LED Open Frame Monitor. Caltron specializes in open frame monitors and open frame touch screen monitors. What makes the LBT-1503OTEARU unit unique from that of consumer grade touch screen monitors, is that this unit is a 15 inch open frame touch screen monitor and is designed specifically to be integrated into a larger enclosure and is comprised of all industrial grade components to ensure that the unit is equipped to handle the most harsh environments and will last for quite some time before there are any potential failures.
Most, if not all, integrators and OEMs alike will usually try to source an open frame touch screen monitor or one without a bezel because there is much less hassle to tearing apart a monitor that is already housed in a different case. This tends to make things much more complicated for the integration and designing process as all housings will be different from each other.
The LBT-1503OTEARU, 15 inch open frame touch screen monitor was designed to meet the needs of the industry and it’s ever changing ways. With displays, there is always a need for brighter and environmentally green as monitors evolve through time and technology increases. To adapt to the ever changing demands of the industry, the LBT-1503OTEARU is a 15” open frame touch screen monitor with an LED backlit LCD panel, which actually is capable of displaying at a higher brightness, while using less energy to operate. With LED backlit panels, there is no need for Mercury, like typical CCFL backlit panels, making this unit much more environmentally friendly.
One of the greatest features of the 15 inch touch screen monitor are all of the available options that are available, like a surface acoustic Wave (SAW) touch or 5-Wire Resistive Touch Option. Not only are there different types of touch options available, but there is also numerous video input options available to accommodate the needs of different applications, such as DVI, Composite, BNC. With these numerous video input options available, it makes it much easier for integrators and OEMs to integrate the units into any application. Basically, Caltron’s LBT-1503OTEARU is the most ideal unit to be used in any application or project that requires integration because of the unit being so diverse and ready to use out of the box.
