July 22, 2010 --- Hope Industrial Systems introduced Thin-Client-Ready Industrial Operator Stations. These self-contained workstations are available with 15”, 17” or 19” LCD monitors housed in NEMA-rated black powder-coated or stainless steel enclosures and provide a sealed, clean and cool operating environment for a user-supplied thin client or small form factor PC. Optional features include NEMA-rated touchscreens, industrial keyboards and pointing devices, and tilt/swivel yoke mounts.A complete workstation is priced starting at $2,335 ($2,785 for stainless steel) offering the industrial user a low-cost platform that can be used with most 3rd party thin clients or small form factor PC's.The use of a well-placed internal cooling fan allows maximum heat management inside the thin client enclosure. Depending on their design, many commercial thin clients will actually run cooler inside the protective enclosure than they would in a typical office environment. This was accomplished without any ventilation outside the enclosure, maintaining a NEMA 4X / IP66 rating for wash-down environments.Workstation Specifications and Options
