Oil can be found all over the world. Sometimes people are even fortunate enough to find it in their own backyard (which is why it is not that uncommon to see the occasional oil well pump in a Los Angeles residential neighborhood). Other oil-rich locations, like the desert, are much more remote with distinctive characteristics that present unique challenges to anyone wanting to do business in those places. Other than tremendous aridity, you must also contend with extreme temperature fluctuations, high winds, blinding sunshine, and sand storms. These conditions call for above average computing solutions. Nothing else will work effectively under such rough conditions.
Acura Embedded Systems Inc. has created some of the best rugged monitors on the market today. These rugged monitors rise up to the challenge of remaining effective in the most arid regions on earth. Deserts located in the Middle East, parts of America, and elsewhere can reach extreme daily highs with similarly extreme lows overnight. High winds and storms can be fatally damaging for any sensitive equipment left outside. That is why Acura Embedded Systems Inc. creates rugged solutions for rough locations just like this.
The AcuBrite 15 is a prime example of a monitor that goes beyond what the average computer is capable of. It survives and thrives in the barren regions of the world. Where other monitors would overheat, shut-down due to cold temperatures, or get worn down with the wear and tear of dust, sand, and other factors, the AcuBrite 15 is strong enough to continue to operate as usual in spite of what outside forces might throw its way. Often something as simple as the glare of the sunshine will stop workers in their tracks because computer screens become unreadable. Not so with the AcuBrite 15—its screen is visible no matter how bright the sun is shining.
The AcuBrite 15’s LED Resistive Touch Screen make this monitor easy to operate and the Dial/Auto/Screen Brightness Control allow you to adjust the level of brightness required for the environment you are working in. It allows you to adjust its Brightness in three ways: Onscreen, AutoSensor, and through Dial Dimming. Whether it is a frigid night in the north or a hot day in the desert, the AcuBrite 15 will work without a hitch, due to its -40C to 60C Operating Temp. The IP65 Front Panel and Aluminum Chassis ensure the AcuBrite 15 will stay intact in case of heavy impact from the outside. This also applies to particles (such as sand or dust—both very common in large quantities in the desert—from coming inside).
Its features include a 1600 Nit LED Resistive Touch Screen, a Rugged Aluminum Chassis, 8~30V DC Input, a Panel and Vehicle Mount, and Standard Connectors (Serial, USB, and VGA). Its Viewing Angle is 160 degrees (Left to Right) and 160 degrees (Top to Bottom) with a Response Time of 8 ms, Max Colors of 16.2 Million, Aspect Ratio of 15” 4:3, and a Touch Screen that is Hardened Resistive (>Mohs 5 Glass Surface).
The AcuBrite 15 is also certified with FCC, CE, and IP65. Its Display contains a Max Resolution of 1024×768, a Touch Controller of USB or RS232 COM Input, its USB Port is USB 2.0 Extension, and Display Input of 1xVGA, 1x DVI.
