VarTech display products are built tough and resilient for hard use, however, factors such as location, function, and application can play an important part in determining what rugged monitor or computer solution is required. After 3 decades of designing and manufacturing industrial grade monitors and computers for essentially every division of industry around the world, we understand that not all rugged solutions are created equal. So we developed the following upgrade packages for our customers to easily fit our products into any harsh environment or location that they require.
