Fast, affordable Tri-color displays, without the hassles...
TextTally by Howman Controls!
Does your tri-color display wish list look like this?
Instant tally updates - no discernable delay between button push and color change
Zero rack space - small enough to mount in front of monitor controls
Flicker-free display - no "jiggles", "ripples", or "starfields", even viewed up close
Rack-mounted power supply - no "wall-warts" in the back of the rack
Rugged Packaging - equipment you can mount up and forget
Centralized data distribution - no "repeaters" between displays
Self-contained display - no extra "interface hardware" to hide behind the rack
Simplified cabling - one cable per display, carrying power and data
Instant on - powers up to working condition, no resetting or adjustment needed
Easy connection - loop data and power through one display into another
Retrofit ready - mount and wire from the front of the rack in existing monitor walls
