At Hope Industrial Systems, our goal is to provide exceptional products enhanced by superior sales, support and service. Since customer relationships are so important to us, we recently sat down with our Sales Manager, Mike McGraw, and discussed some questions we know many are asking about Hope Industrial Systems. Here’s what he had to say.
Hope Industrial Systems is excited to introduce our new Industrial Full-Travel Keyboards with Capacitive Touchpad. These new keyboards are available in our four keyboard enclosure options:
- Monitor-Mounted – mount directly to the bottom of our Universal Mount Monitors
- Benchtop – place on a bench or table top
- Panel Mount – mount in a panel or other surface
- Folding Wall Mount – attach to any vertical surface; fold out of the way when not in use
As December comes to a close, we want to take some time to reflect on another great year at Hope Industrial Systems. Our company has experienced growth in a number of ways this year.
We are pleased to announce the availability of our combined Conduit/Compression Gland Cable Exit Plate. This new option provides our rugged, fully-sealed conduit option (generally used between our Universal Mount Display and an enclosure or pedestal) with the flexibility of our Compression Gland for connecting nearby peripherals like a barcode scanner or mouse.
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.
Hope Industrial monitors and touch screens are built to withstand even the harshest industrial environments. Because we are confident in the durability of our products, all Hope Industrial monitors are supported by:
- Extensive third party testing
- 4-year warranty
- 30 day total satisfaction guarantee
- 24 – 48 hour repair turnaround

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.
