Regardless of the OEM part numbers above, pretty much all of Panelview 550 controllers use the same display and HMI (Human Machine Interface) What this means is that you do not have to go to the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to get the right part for your broken controller. That is like going to the car dealership to buy tires – you can buy tires that fit your car anywhere. What’s important to know is that the aftermarket parts are likely made by the same company overseas anyway, the only difference is the OEM will charge you much more for the same part – that is if they even have that part in stock. It could be an obsolete line of repair parts that they do not carry any more.  

This is where Monitech and its subsidiaries shine very brightly. The legacy controllers and the display modules are a very important part of the entire machinery. Imagine if the LCD is so dim that you mistake an 8 for a 3, or your keypad is worn out and the touchscreen is unresponsive. Now you are making parts to the wrong specs which can cost you precious time and money.  

I urge you to look at the company that is supplying the aftermarket part closely. Are they an established respected company in the industry, how long have they been in business, do they have a Brick and Mortar building here in North America or are they just a buy and sell (drop ship) guy, do they offer warranty and Technical Support as well as a solid return policy, do they have good reviews on their website and Google? These are very important questions to keep in mind. 

Many times, we fall into the trap of buying the cheapest possible part for a very important device. This usually leads to more costly downtime and necessary upgrades later. Monitech has the Panelview 550 touchscreen as well as the Panelview 550 touchscreen and keypad combo in stock. We even carry the Touchscreen already assembled to the front bezel, easy to install, high quality products, backed by a long history of satisfied clients, and fast delivery is sure to cut your downtime to a minimum. Please contact us for more info or simply purchase online with confidence that you are well protected by the leaders in the controller display aftermarket parts and services.
