San Diego, California (August 16, 2012) – Chassis Plans, a leader in the production of turnkey rackmount computer systems, is offering industrial computers with rugged LCD components for operation in the most extreme environments. Choosing a sturdy military application computer with rugged LCD components must be done with utmost care.
A rugged monitor is a computer developed to operate efficiently in the most extreme conditions. High temperatures, strong vibrations, and large amounts of dust and wind are some of the things a rugged monitor is designed to withstand. Sectors that use a rugged PC include oil and gas, mining, healthcare, transportation/distribution, and the military. Many rugged monitors share a fundamental design that gives electronics a controlled operating environment. Components are selected for their capacity to absorb severe punishments such as operating temperatures that are higher or lower than the ones mainstream PC components are subjected to.
Rugged types of monitors and PCs include features such as completely-sealed keyboards that safeguard against liquids and dust. They also have scratch-resistant screens that are readable even when exposed to direct sunlight.
Due to these specialized features, rugged versions of commercial monitors and PCs are more expensive than their conventional counterparts. However, a study shows that, in extreme conditions, total ownership costs are 36 percent less for rugged notebooks and 33 percent lower for handhelds and PDAs. These lower costs are attributed to the decreased failure rates of rugged computers and their impact on productivity factors.
Aside from turnkey rackmount systems, Chassis Plans also manufactures rugged 1U to 6U rackmount systems tailored to their clients’ application needs. The rugged PC manufacturer also produces a full line of rackmount and panel mount LCD display monitors and keyboard drawers for military and industrial use.
