Understanding the Importance of Proper Power Supplies

When it comes to building displays, one of the most vital accessories and components of the whole process is the power supply. Though it’s an essential part of the process, it’s often not treated as such, and can become an afterthought in the consumer’s mind. The wrong choice could lead to performance issues. So as you’re investing in your displays, keep these things in mind when it comes time to order your power supplies

Power Supplies Quality Matters

The power supply you choose will have an impact on how displays perform. That’s why we ensure that all our supplies have been carefully tested to ensure that the performance is not only optimal but that it provides power within the complete temperature range. 

Know Your Power Options

You’ll also want to understand the types of power supplies available to you. For starters, an enclosed power supply is highly adaptable, is easy to hookup, and provides overload protection, too. They are a perfect option for a variety of industries and applications. 

Led Drivers are power-friendly, and have up to 95% efficiency rating. Their watts and volts range allow for a wide range of applications. Some LED drivers could include energy-saving, and brightness reduction, and all have protection from dust and moisture.

Is Your Technology Ready for Summer Weather?

Touch screens, digital signs, and digital displays, oh my! These business staples can be a great way to gather attention in outdoor spots. However, when it comes to how these technological staples deal with the heat, it all depends on the actions you take as a business owner to take care for them. When it comes to protecting your digital supplies during the summer heat, here’s what to consider:

Always Avoid Direct Sunlight

When it comes to placing your signage, always be mindful of how much sunlight it will be exposed to. Extreme heats can hinder their performance and lead to damage.

Don’t Forget to Power Off

When not in use, shut off your displays and touch screens to give it time to rest. An always going system can produce more heat and has a better chance of overheating or breaking down sooner than it should. 

Know the Signs of Overheating 

Some signs that overheating might be occurring include hot to the touch machines, fast running fans, slowing performance, sudden crashing, or powering off on its own. If your devices are showing any of these signs, it might be time to consider relocating them.

Flexible and Affordable

The Dos and Don’ts of Touch Screens

When it comes to business aesthetics, touch screens are the modern way to show your consumer that you are willing to provide a convenient experience. However, the care you put into these devices can also say a lot about your business.

 Without protective measures or proper cleaning, your once shiny new piece of technology can now begin to look broken and warn. To ensure you touch screens are always ready to provide the perfect experience, here are some dos and don’ts to consider: 

Don’t Use Paper Towels

Paper towels and facial tissues can scratch your screen. And though these minor abrasions might not be visible at first, continued use will not only dull the screen, but scratches will build up over time. 

Do Wipe With Lint-Free Cloth

They are made up of multi fibers that allow dirt to be gripped with ease. Not to mention, these fibers are so small that they will prevent your surface from being scratched. You can use the cloth dry, or slightly dampen it for a deeper clean. If you choose to pair it with a cleaner, be sure it is formulated for touchscreen use. 

Don’t Saturate With Water

Though a small amount of water on your micro-fiber cloth or a few sprays of an approved touch screen cleaner is acceptable, keep it minimal. Too much water can lead to permanent damage, so be mindful of how you go about cleaning your screens.

Make the Most of Your Flat Panel Displays

A flat panel display is a wonderful investment, no matter the business. The visually appealing device can help attract consumers, visually improve your business, or add another layer of marketing to utilize. However, without a plan, it can be quite easy to misuse these displays, missing out on their full potential. Here are a few key things to consider: 

Make it an Interactive Experience

Many of our monitors can be used as a panel PC, touch screen, or touch panel, allowing you to optimize your consumer’s experience. Multi-touch systems enable users to get the information they need, with a single touch. Our custom designs can help you create the perfect option for you and your business. 

Consider Where Your Place Them

Whether you have an interactive touch screen or not. There should always be a strategy behind where and when you use them. High traffic areas, visually appealing spots, and areas in which marketing is missing are all things to consider. The wrong placing could let your message go by the wayside. 

Always Keep The Protected

There are a variety of ways to protect your investment, one simple but effective one is through optical bonding. Protecting the glass reduces heat buildup and provides shock resistance too. Those are just some of the benefits. You can also reduce your cleaning time, with no air gaps between the panes of glass, dirt, and dust will not penetrate; neither can moisture preventing fogging too. If you put the money into your displays, go the extra step and be sure they are protected for the long haul.
