Worldwide labor shortages have made it difficult for car wash operators to keep their car washes going. So now, car wash operators are turning to automation to keep the cars rolling through. Automated or semi-automated systems put car washes on autopilot by automating some or all of the processes from collecting payment through to the final wipedown.
For integrators looking to develop a range of car wash systems, it’s important that the HMI touch screen monitor is robust and reliable enough to withstand the rigors of semi-outdoor use, such as water and dust, UV and high temperatures, and electrical interference from other machines in the car wash setup.
The OM series of open-frame industrial touch screen monitors, featuring industrial-grade panels from AUO Display Plus, are designed to withstand the rigors of semi-outdoor applications. The OM series has water and dust resistance, robust touch, and UV protection for semi-outdoor use, and comes in a range of sizes to suit different applications.
