ToughStation – Sealed Displays and Panel Computers

Sealed LCD Displays and Panel Computers for Industrial Applications

Sealed LCD DIsplays and Panel Computers

Sealed LCD displays and panel computers used for HMI functionality and visualization in washdown environments.

These sealed LCD displays and panel computers are ruggedly built and constructed from 316-Stainless Steel (NEMA 4X/IP66) or black powder-coat aluminum (NEMA 4/IP65). This gasket-sealed ToughStation series is ideally suited for washdown or clean-in-place environments with strict sanitation regulations requiring regular cleaning of equipment with water or corrosive cleaning agents.

The fanless design allows for use in a variety of applications where a fully sealed monitor or panel computer is needed as part of a rugged HMI solution. Industries and applications where VarTech’s ToughStations are currently being used include: smart factories (IIOT), medical and pharmaceutical cleanroom applications, food and beverage processing, mining & tunnel operations, oil & natural gas drilling platforms, outdoor information kiosk, and more.
