GENERAL Digital, represented by Metromatics , has introduced the SlimLine 1U LCD monitor/ keyboard/ pointing device, which is optimised for its low profile (1.75" high), and is designed to save valuable rack space and expense, by providing a reliable and user friendly operator interface.
The enclosure is constructed from a combination of steel and aluminium, providing a cost effective, lightweight housing that can be used in most commercial and industrial applications.
Use of continuous friction hinges permit the display to be user adjusted over a usable range of greater than 90 degrees. A spring coil latch is used to secure the display while it is stowed.
A pair of 24" long chassis slides facilitate rack mounting and ease of operation.
Interface connectors for the keyboard, pointing device and input power are located on the rear of the device and face inward to reduce the overall depth of the system to 24".
Each Slimline 1U is equipped with high quality 4" video cable.
The SL1-18W Series features an 18.1" (diagonal) LCD, the largest panel to be integrated into General Digital family of sliding rack mount products.
The SL1-17W offers a slightly smaller, 17.0" (diagonal) display. Both LCD displays offer the latest advances in LCD Technology with high brightness/contrast images, fast response time (suitable for live video) and wide viewing angles.
Customers may select from list of supported video controllers to achieve desired balance of price and performance. All video controllers are operated via intuitive On-Screen Display (OSD) menu's are controlled via membrane panel.
Advanced features such as Live Video Support, Picture-in-Picture (graphics and video) and Image Rotation are supported only on specific controller configurations.
