This touchscreen monitor is suitable for outdoor usage

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The SRMHETRWP-15C (photo) is a rugged, industrial-grade 15-in. sunlight-readable touchscreen. This new model provides many important advantages for use in any automated outdoor system. With super-high visibility and brightness, this model is five to six times brighter than standard screens, making it suitable for use in direct sunlight. An automated sensor dims and brightens the screen based upon ambient light conditions. The monitor has a corrosion-resistant, waterproof stainless-steel enclosure that withstands rain, sleet and snow. It will operate in temperatures from –22 to 185°F. — TRU-Vu Monitors, Inc., Arlington Heights, Ill.
