The panel is made by Proface, model number: PS3650A-T42S. Its 12.1". I got it on ebay for $200, they usually go for a significant amount more than that (I got super lucky). As for mounting it, there are special clips with screws which hold it in place. Unfortunately my unit came without the clips/screws, so i've had to gerry-rig something, i'll post a picture later on.

So i've pretty much ordered everything I need and now i'm just waiting for the last few parts to show up. While waiting for the guts to show up I completed some work done on the control panel exterior. I finished drilling the rest of the holes ie. all the bottom connections. I also primed and painted the enclosure. Next step is to order all of the tags and finish wiring up the guts, hopefully I can get most of the wiring done this weekend.

This is what I've been designing. But my touch screen has to interface with a lap top or tower so it can talk to the BCS. Does your touchscreen have a processor or grahics card built into the touchsreen. I was planning on having a hidden mini to work as the interface but htis ould be easier.
I have almost all the parts too start(except the BCS) so when i get home from afghanistan i can have a build fest.
Here is my wiring diagram.

With as cheap as many of the Android tablets are getting; I think we'll start seeing people use those soon. Seems like that's the route that I would go given that it's essentially a touchscreen LCD with web browser and wifi for $100 or less.

Very cool man, excellent drawings and diagrams. Yeah I had thought about going the android tablet route but I wanted to be able to mount whatever I got in the actual enclosure and from the research I did there are very few which have an rj45 port. I also got the unit I have SUPER cheap so I decided to go that way. I received all the remaining parts this week (minus one stepdown inverter) so this weekend is going to be a big weekend of wiring and getting stuff done so I can start programming the BCS. I'll post more pictures on sunday of my progress.

Now that Brewer’s hardware purchased BCS I know Darrin will get the components back in stock, and the BCS web site will get revitalized. I'm over here until May so I’ll be watching your build with much interest and envy. Many photos if you can. Everyone’s input has allowed me to design my system
