RoHS Compliant

VarTech’s 21.5″ ToughStation fully sealed monitor is perfectly suited for use in work environments that require frequent washdowns and chemical sanitation.

The rugged monitor’s fully sealed enclosure is corrosion and moisture resistant for use in work environments that require frequent washdowns and chemical sanitation. Shock and vibration resilient components and harnessed cables reduce strain on internal parts yielding additional ruggedness to the overall design.
