PLASTIC/METAL CONSTRUCTION

The PanelPal’s display and electronics are housed in a durable, plastic enclosure that is ideal for commercial and light industrial applications.

The plastic construction is intended for high volume production and minimizes both cost and lead time. A metal mounting frame and panel mount (flanged) bezel facilitate integration into consoles or kiosks. The standard bezel is finished with a black powder coat, although other colors are optionally available.


PROTECTIVE GLASS/OVERLAY AND SEALED GASKET

A glass or polycarbonate overlay can be added to the design to protect the LCD display. This feature is offered on a semi-custom basis and may affect lead time. In addition, a sealed gasket is installed between the display and bezel to protect the monitor’s electronics from dust, liquids (e.g., spilled coffee) or other debris.

OPTIONS AND ACCESSORIES

General Digital offers numerous options and accessories to complement your LCD monitorThe PanelPal has been optimized for mass production and cost efficiency. As a consequence, the design does not offer the same level of flexibility as its sister product, the Saber PanelMount. However, General Digital can still offer some limited customization to the design. Please speak with a Sales Engineer for additional information.

PRIVATE LABELING

General Digital encourages relationships with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and is willing to maintain your company identity (private label) on our products. Please speak with a Sales Engineer for additional information.

DISPLAY

In order to reduce both cost and lead time, General Digital modifies high volume LCD monitors intended for the desktop market and integrates the assembly into our final product configuration. Unlike the Saber PanelMount (whose components have multiple sources of supply), the PanelPal is affected by the life cycle of a single commodity product, which is typically 18–30 months. Although it is possible that the commodity monitor will be replaced with a “like or equivalent” model, it is completely subject to market availability and popularity.

1 Native Resolution is the fixed number of horizontal and vertical pixels arrayed in the viewable area of an LCD monitor. Other resolutions can be displayed.
2 Brightness and Contrast values for standard brightness displays are provided by the manufacturer of the LCD component; these values are nominal and may vary. 
3 The hours for Backlight MTBF refer to the half-life of the backlight bulbs; that is, the point at which the bulbs reach half of their original brightness. It does not indicate the life expectancy of the bulbs.
 

General Digital designs and manufactures scores of different monitor configurations each year, making the creation of technical documentation for each configuration impractical. We efficiently combine data into a select few documents, which answer most questions that customers typically ask. Please feel welcome to request any information not found here.

    High Performance Video Calibration Services (2:32)

    One of the many services General Digital provides is High Performance Video Calibration. In any application, where multiple monitors are used, video calibration of this caliber proves invaluable. In this video, one of our Electro-Optical Engineers, Mike Kloter, explains the benefits of this process.



     

    Optical Characterization Services (2:16)

    Unlike your phone, a display’s position cannot easily be adjusted to increase readability in direct sunlight. General Digital’s Optical Characterization Services take the guesswork out of quantifying how your display will perform under sunlight conditions. The following video explains the process in detail.
