Open Frame Industrial Touch Panel for control cabinet and console installation

Our Industrial Open Frame product variant is optimally designed for front installation in control cabinets or consoles. The slim architecture of the Touch Panel is ideally suited for this. Due to the missing frame of the panel, there are no dirty edges, as the touch screen is installed completely flat. This Touch Panel is an unobtrusive and cost-effective solution.

Due to the flat installation it is perfectly protected against mechanical stress. The front of the industrial Touch Panel complies with the IP65 protection class and prevents dust or moisture from penetrating. The display itself is scratch-resistant and anti-reflective and perfectly suited for industrial applications. The high protection class also allows the use e.g. in medical technology, where touch panels must be particularly easy to clean.

Depending on the requirements, the panel can fulfil different performance classes without changing the housing.

If you would like to print your panel with your logo, for example, we would be happy to do this for you as well. Just send us an inquiry.

Open Frame Touch Panel

Touch panels that fit perfectly into the housing

The open frame panel is fastened from behind with the help of retaining clips and a counter-holder. The pressure pins fix the device to the frame of the control cabinet or the housing recess.

Our touch panels are fanless and therefore completely maintenance-free. The heat is dissipated via the housing. It is important that the back is not completely covered in order to ensure adequate air circulation.
