Advantech 18.5" HD Ultra Slim Multi-Touch Monitor for Compact Embedded Applications


February 24, 2016, Taipei—Advantech (2395.TW), a global embedded computing leader providing embedded platform solutions across multiple vertical markets, announces the release of IDS-3118W, a 18.5” multi-touch open frame touch monitor. IDS-3118W is specifically designed to meet “end users’ needs” in terms of ID design, operating interface, and installation. The product features a wide viewing area (16: 9), a more intuitive operating interface with P-cap touch technology, and simpler installation; making it the best choice for multiple embedded applications such as KIOSK, HMI, etc.

16:9 and High Definition Viewing Area

IDS-3118W supports 16:9 wide screen and HD (1366 x 768) content. The 16:9 aspect ratio provides excellent wide format visual performance. Compared to traditional 4:3 displays, the 16:9 widescreen adds 40% viewing area, allowing more content to be displayed. For industrial grade displays, LED backlights are the current trend in backlight design. IDS-3118W comes with an industrial grade panel and LED backlight which saves 20% ~ 30% on power consumption and delivers higher brightness.

Fast, Accurate, and Reliable Multi-Touch System

IDS-3118W uses an industrial grade LCD panel with 50,000-hourMTBF. It is equipped with a projective capacitive touch system which has high transmissivity and enables accurate and reliable multi-touch operations. Its extreme durability up to 50 million touches guarantees machines are consistently generating revenues and delivering efficient ROI for customers.

Slim and Light Design for Efficient Installation

IDS-3118W incorporates simple and slim mechanical design into a two piece metal frame structure (middle frame and back cover). This simple slim design is only 36.15 mm thick (with touch solution) while most competing models are above 50 mm thick. IDS-3118W offers up to 27% more space saving which enables more compact applications. Designed with integrated brackets and VESA holes on the back cover, IDS-3118W provides multiple mounting methods, including rear and VESA mounting, which makes for simple integration within any embedded application.

  • Rear Mount : Easy installation with integrated brackets using 12 x M3 screws 
  • VESA Mount: Compliant with standard VESA mounting holes: 75 x 75 mm and 100 x 100 mm.
