Our line of industrial KVM Extenders allows you to place your industrial monitor or touch screen (and mouse, keyboard or other devices) up to 300 m (1000′) away from the computer or server using a single shielded CATx cable. This way, the non-industrial computer can be kept safely in a controlled environment, while your industrial monitor handles the tough conditions of the factory floor.
Hope Industrial Systems’ Industrial Operator Stations are designed to provide a low-cost platform that can be configured in more than 12,960 ways. Our workstations consist of an industrial Universal Mount Monitor, cable exit plate option, and monitor mount. Other optional accessories, including PC/thin client enclosures, keyboards, and KVM extenders, are available depending on your requirements. Read More
Hope Industrial Systems has been shipping HazLoc-rated monitors for 10 years now. But did you know that every one of our industrial monitors and touch screens, as well as monitor-mounted keyboards, is rated for hazardous locations?
According to the National Electrical Code (NEC), hazardous locations are areas “where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to flammable gases or vapors, flammable liquids, combustible dust, or ignitable fibers or flyings.”
We have never made a big deal of this, so you may not be aware: Hope Industrial Systems has shipped more than 100,000 industrial monitors worldwide. Since HIS was founded in 2000, our products have been installed in over 60 different countries in a wide range of industrial applications. We are proud to say that over 85% of those who purchase our monitors are repeat customers.
One of the most common questions our Tech Support group receives is how to calibrate the touch screen, usually during the initial installation. To help users through the process, we’ve created this step-by-step guide for Microsoft Windows users.
Depending on how far off your alignment is, it might be necessary to temporarily connect a mouse to perform these steps.
These instructions apply to Windows versions 7, 8, and 10 when using the USB touch screen interface – there may be small differences depending on your version.
We are happy to introduce our new line of 19.5″ widescreen industrial monitors and touch screens. Complementing our existing 22″ and 23″ wide screen displays, these new models bring full 1080p (1920×1080) resolution in a compact 19″ screen format.
We work to minimize failures.

We have many customers who use our Industrial Touch Screens and Workstations as a rugged, wash-down capable front-end for a simple Raspberry Pi computer. Over the years we have written several articles about ways to both physically mount and install/calibrate the touch screen using the Raspbian OS. We’ve also written some general Linux overview articles that review the various ways to use our displays with Linux.
Hope Industrial Systems touch screens are designed and 3rd-party certified to withstand the toughest, dirtiest industrial environments. At the same time, our resistive touch screens are pressure sensitive so a user can easily interact with the computer, even while wearing heavy gloves. This can be a problem: a screen that is designed to get dirty will need to be periodically cleaned, and wiping down a powered-on touch screen can cause accidental touches in your click-sensitive software.
The Hope Industrial Screen Cleaning Utility is the perfect solution.
“How well do your touch screens work with Linux?” is a question we get very often. While the short answer is always “perfectly!” there is more than one way to support and align our touch screens with Linux operating systems, and which to choose often depends on the particular circumstances of a given application. In this article we will provide a high level overview of some of the more common methods for supporting Linux.
