FAQ

The waterproof monitor is a kind of computer monitor with a waterproof enclosure. In our daily life, there are a lot of environments that need to use the display monitor, but these environments are full of water or steam. The common monitor can not be used in such environments, caused by water or steam can cause a short circuit which is very dangerous.

The waterproof monitor is designed to be used in such situations. The enclosure can prevent water or dust from entering the interior of the product. Lots of applications need to use such products, for example, the monitor for boats, monitor for showers, marine monitors, and many others.

Similar to other computer monitors, the waterproof monitor also has many custom parameters, for instance, the size, resolution, touch screen, and so on. Besides these, there are two kinds of parameters that you should pay more attention to.

IP rating: The higher the grade of the IP rating, the higher the cost. For example, the price of a 19-inch monitor with IP68 is higher than a 19-inch monitor with IP65.

Screen brightness: It’s important to use the monitor with the right screen brightness. If you need to use a waterproof monitor outdoors, but purchase the common indoor monitor, then the screen would be too dark to see the content on the screen. At the same time, the higher the screen brightness, the higher the cost.

There are many kinds of waterproof monitors in the market and they have lots of custom characteristics, such as protection level, size, resolution, etc. Different applications have different requirements.

For example, the screens of marine boats need high brightness and the highest waterproofing rating, but the sizes are always small, such as 10.1-inch, 15-inch, and so on. However, the outdoor digital signage of the bus stations needs a big size of monitor with a touch screen. The waterproofing rating can be lower than a marine boat.

The higher the requirement, the higher the cost. In order to save your money, it’s very important to balance the safety and the cost. So, how do you know what kind of waterproof monitor is the best for your application? The best solution is to select the right manufacturer to work together.

(2). Outdoor type. The outdoor waterproof monitor is widely used in outdoor places, such as bus stops, parks, toll stations, and many others.

  • The screen brightness of  some of such monitors need to reach up to 2000 nits. The requirement is similar to the sunlight-readable monitor.

If you get the wrong product, maybe you pay more money than you need, or maybe you would find the product can not be used in your application. These situations would waste much time and money.

IP rating: It’s the MOST important standard for the waterproof product. This part will show you what’s the IP rating and there will be a table that contains several different types of user environments and IP ratings for you to reference. From the table, you can check what kind of IP rating is essential for your waterproof monitor.

The waterproof monitor is used in a complex environment. The outdoor types will meet all weathers, such as rain, snow, dust, and so on. The IP rating is the best standard to describe the capability that the monitors to protect themselves from damage.

The IP rating refers to ingress protection or international protection rating. It’s used to define the level of the frame or enclosure that prevents foreign matters from entering the interior of the product, such as solids and liquids.

There are always two numbers behind the IP, for example, IP65, IP67, and so on. The first number which is from 1 to 6 defines the protection level for solids. The second number which is from 1 to 9 defines the protection level for liquids. The bigger the number, the higher the protection level.

For a waterproof monitor, the basic is IP65. The table below shows you the suitable levels for a such monitor. The picture is from rainfordsolutions.com. For more details, please click here and wipikid.

It’s much more convenient to use the table to check what IP rating is the best for your application.

For example, if you need a monitor for your marine boat, then the IP rating is at least IP67. If you want to use a waterproof monitor for your outdoor digital signal, then you can choose the IP65. Please keep in your mind that the higher the IP rating, the higher the cost. So, the most suitable IP rating is the best.

A touch screen a function similar to the mouse is usually used with computer display. It is installed in front of the display screen. Many people search for a waterproof touch screen. In fact, what they need is a waterproof monitor with a touch screen.

There are several types of touch screens in the market, such as resistive touch screens, capacitive touch screens, and infrared( IR ) touch screens. The capacitive touch screen and IR touch screen are the most popular at present. The capacitive touch screen is transparent and frameless. Its thickness is about 2mm.

The size of the IR touchscreen is custom and the price is better. But, it has a frame. If the size of your waterproof monitor is less than 55”, then you can use either of them. If the size is over 55”, then we recommend using the IR touch screen.

The LCD display and touchscreen are not waterproof. They can not face all outdoor weather by themselves. In order to protect them, a frame or enclosure with good air-tightness is essential.

According to the material, enclosures can be divided into several types. For small sizes of waterproof monitors, the commonly used materials for enclosures are stainless steel and aluminum. For large sizes, aluminum enclosures are most commonly used, caused by they are light and easy to be processed.

The small-size waterproof monitors are always parts of some products. They are mounted to the brackets of the products. The large-size monitors can be wall mounted and freestanding. In fact, the enclosures are custom. It’s convenient for us to design and produce enclosures with different sizes, thicknesses, appearances, and so on.

For the waterproof monitor, there are many styles of the enclosures, such as open frame type, panel mount type, and so on. The kiosk is made with a waterproof monitor with a standing enclosure. You can order any style of custom enclosures from the manufacturer.

Can the waterproof monitor just be used as a computer monitor? The answer is no. Its function can be rich. The function of the such monitor is decided by the control board it uses. Generally speaking, there are two commonly used functions.

1). Used as the computer monitor. This function is basic and easy to understand. Most small sizes of such monitors are just used as PC displays. The M.NT68676 is one of the control boards we commonly use.

2). Used as the multimedia player. Most large-size waterproof monitors are used as outdoor multimedia playing platforms. The monitor has a smart control board with an operating system. The control board can be connected to the network via WIFI.

It has rich interfaces, such as USB, SD card, HDMI, and so on. Such a monitor usually has an IR touchscreen. It can not only be connected to the computer via the HDMI but also play commercial advertisements and videos which are stored on U-disk or SD card.
