The specialist for TFT flat screens and system solutions for industrial and multimedia applications, Distec, has introduced enhancements and extensions of the proven POS-Line product family at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), the international trade fair for audiovisual and electronic integration in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

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 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. "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," explained Axel Schäfer, Head of Division Industrial Monitors, of Distec. Distec will be showing the new POS line BLO monitors at stand P132 in hall 10.

Low flammability and low fire load for improved fire protection
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".

Optimised housing, simplified installation and increased range of temperature
The improved version of the successful POS line product family combines up-to-date technology with a modern and appealing design. "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," adds Axel Schäfer. 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.
