5100 Series

Storm Interface offers their 5100 series rugged data display

Storm Interface has announced the introduction of an innovative and highly-effective solution.  The Storm 5100 series: toughened, water resistant, data displays with integral USB 2.0 interface.

Data displays are an essential component of most contemporary equipment; however, because they must be visible, they are often the most exposed and vulnerable. They are often difficult to fix securely in place and even more difficult to protect.

These robust, monochrome displays are ideal for use in exposed or industrial environments. Bright white transflective display technology is securely encased within a sealed and impact-resistant bezel. The bezel features a hard-coated UV and scratch resistant, polycarbonate window. Available in either 20 character x 4 line, 20 character x 8 line or 128 x 64 pixel graphic versions, these USB 2.0 display devices can be easily installed into any control panel or equipment enclosure. They require no liquid sealants or adhesives to achieve a toughened, sealed, and weather resistant installation.

Offered in a range of eight different configurations/specifications, Storm 5100 series displays offer designers a ‘ready-to-use’ data display solution for a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications.
