Ruggedized Front Panels

We are capable of producing ruggedized front panels that meet the growing demand for Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) that perform reliably in harsh conditions.

Ruggedized front panels are reliable, durable, and provide Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) with a vast selection of HMI technologies. Front panels can be incorporated in hazardous area HMIs, vehicle & marine mounted systems, as they can be waterproof and dustproof. All front panels are designed to operate in harsh environments and conditions. Examples include high vibration, extreme temperatures, etc.
