Enhancement and extensions of the POS-Line product family have been introduced by Distec, and will be at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), the international trade fair for audio-visual and electronic integration, in Amsterdam 7th-10th February 2017.
In particular, the focus is on the further optimised POS-Line-BLO monitor series, which means optimised fire load and flue gas performance by using improved fire retardant materials. The new G30 protection glass improves heat resistance and the heat-resistant power and network cables are now halogen-free.
The integrated thermal fuse separates the monitor from the power supply when the critical temperature is reached. The monitor housing offers protection class IP33.
Axel Schäfer, COO of Distec explained: "The fire-resistant and flue-gas-optimized monitors have stood the test as information displays in sensitive areas with stringent fire protection requirements such as escape routes, stairways and on the opposite side of elevators in public buildings, hotels and production halls."
Since a suitable standard for monitors does not exist, an independent expert has classified the devices for the fire behaviour of construction products. The basic fire test showed that the monitors fall below the limit values for class B-S1, d0 according to DIN EN 13501-1 in all categories. This is the best grade in the class of flame retardant products. The certificate confirms that the monitors are hardly inflammable, and that there is almost no smoke in the event of a fire, or that there is a dripping of burning material or parts falling off. The monitors are available in sizes from 31.5-54.6”.
Schäfer added: "The new POS line monitors are the ideal solution for anyone looking for a robust metal housing, reliability in operation and a wide range of controller and front options depending on the application."
New features include the optimised aluminium housing with lower weight and increased temperature range, simplified mounting for flexible installation without mounting angles and latest PCAP-Touch technology for 10 finger use. Typical application areas of the POS-Line V2 series ranges from various professional applications for industry and trade as digital whiteboard, guiding monitors and digital signage at the point-of-sales.
Distec will be showing the new POS line BLO monitors at stand P132 in hall 10.
