OPS (Open Pluggable Specification) is a standard created and issued by Intel to help digital signage operators to easily, quickly and widely deploy rich media content in a cost-effective manner through the standardized interchangeable mechanical interface between digital signage displays and media players. Based on this design concept of standardization and interchangeability mentioned above, Quanmax launches an innovative 15"/17"/19" OPS-module-pluggable Multi-touch Bezel-free Flat Panel Monitor, named MoniQ-1500/1700/1900, and attempts introducing OPS design to more applications other than digital signage, for example, factory / machine automation or building / home automation.

First of all, MoniQ-1500/1700/1900 is an industrial LCD display monitor combining the most popular features at present for touch monitor, including 10-point PCT multi-touch function, scratch-resistant glass screen, contamination-resistant bezel-free flat panel and spray-resistant front panel. Secondly, it transforms itself into a panel PC when being plugged with an OPS module.

What can MoniQ-1500/1700/1900 benefit with?

Generally, breakdowns / failures may occur more frequently in the system itself than in the monitor. Imagine this situation: if the system unit could be easily drawn out from the whole panel PC, how great it is to only send back a small light unit to the supplier for maintenance! It can simplify logistics process and save a lot of delivery cost. Now, MoniQ-1500/1700/1900 provides such a solution to address this demand. Just remove the failed OPS module and sent it back to the supplier for maintenance. Of course, users can insert a backup OPS module or their supplier provide a temporary substitute to minimize the downtime of the whole panel PC.

As computing technology continues to advance, system upgrade is inevitable in each several years in order to fulfill requirements for higher performance and more applications. However, it is really a waste to replace a whole panel PC with a new one since the technical evolution of display is comparatively slower. MoniQ-1500/1700/1900 leverages the interchangeability design concept based on OPS standardized interface and allows users to easily upgrade the panel PC in an more economic manner. Users needn't discard a whole panel PC. Just plug a new higher-performance OPS module into MoniQ and the panel PC is then upgraded to the performance level desired.

MoniQ-1500/1700/1900 is not only a monitor but also a panel PC. That is, the screen can be switched by selecting signal resource in OSD menu to display different images / videos input from both OPS module inserted in it and at maximum three external system computers via three built-in video input ports: VGA, DVI-D and HDMI. In practice, for example on factory floor or a workshop floor, MoniQ-1500/1700/1900 can help reduce infrastructure costs by minimizing monitor allocation and release more space in the working area. With all features of both industrial panel PC and OPS module mentioned above, Quanmax recommends MoniQ-1500/1700/1900 OPS-module-pluggable monitor as an alternative solution to panel PC when it is equipped with an appropriate OPS module. Being IP65 sealed from front side, it is suitable to harsh industrial environments without fear of ingress of water and dust. In addition, Quanmax offers a variety of OPS modules based on Intel Bay Trail, Haswell, Broadwell and latest Skylake platforms, to fulfill different performance requirements depending upon applications.
