Some options for your custom chassis include:
Upgrade to Old Control Panel
A nuclear power plant customer needed to replace their bank of old CRT monitors with new displays, without making any mechnical modifications to their control panel.
We designed and built a customer-specific mounting system for a modern LCD monitor and designed it to allow for six degrees of adjustment to simplify retrofitting. We even included space for a new panel-mount PC.
Custom Monitors in Legacy Mounting
Our customer wanted a simple, fast way to inspect images from multiple security cameras, and the solution had to drop into an existing panel cutout with no modifications.
We created custom panel-mount monitors with touchscreen LCD displays and joysticks built right into the front bezel. On the back, we added a mounting bracket for a camera network and video routing interface module. Each monitor could then show multiple security camera images simultaneously, with touchscreen interaction for each camera. For additional image control, the joystick could control camera axis of motion and zoom. The rugged stainless steel bezel was sealed against dust and moisture, with a mounting that perfectly matched existing screw holes.
Special Requirements for Luxury Yachts
If you've ever captained a ship at night, you know that it is absolutely vital to see your night-running radar, maps, and navigation systems. While the best results for bridge visibilty is a very dim control panel. But if you dim down a regular LCD display low enough for optimal viewing, whole sections of the screen drop to black as backlights turn off, while the rest remains too bright (and the backlighting sometimes does not come back up immediately).
We designed a LCD monitor for a luxury yacht builder with fine resolution dim-to-zero display circuitry to solved this problem. It could also go to full sunlight-readable brightness for day viewing on the open sea. Added to this were custom flush-mount panel mounting with NEMA 4X sealed corrosion-resistent front bezels with a choice sizes and colors, and choice of 24VDC power or autoranging 90-264VAC power supplies.
Multiple Monitors into Existing Panels
Our customer told us it was vital to view lots of data simultaneously in their complicated control room, and that the panel cutouts were already in place. We designed special steel narrow-bezel LCD monitors for them to drop into place. The units were set up and carefully tested for quality control before being installed into the control room.
