Cincoze offers series of sunlight-readable industrial panel PCs
For comfortable, convenient smart cities, Tawianese manufacturer Cincoze believes that human machine interfaces (HMIs), sensors, embedded computers, networks, and artificial intelligence data analysis are all technologies which will provide the tools to assess public infrastructure needs.
It has produced a range of outdoor kiosks, the Crystal line, which includes industrial panel PCs with sunlight-readable displays. The modular design is available in a selection of sizes. The sunlight-readable display models afford bright daylight viewing and are strong enough to withstand the challenges of an outdoor environment, says Cincoze. The panel PCs are suitable for outdoor kiosk use in transport kiosks, automatic ticket and other vending machines, public information displays and smart mailboxes.
The Cincoze sunlight-readable panel PC series uses Cincoze’s patented Convertible Display System (CDS) modular design to combine an industrial touch display and an industrial embedded computer module. The result, says the company is an easy-maintenance, easy-upgrade, and future-proof panel PC.
The embedded system component offers various options including, Intel Atom, Pentium, and Core i3/i5 CPUs, up to 64Gbyte of memory, and two 2.5-inch hard disk drives or solid state drives, selectable to match system performance needs.
Display options are from eight to 21.5-inches with projective capacitive (PCAP) touch displays, and high-brightness 1600 nits backlight for visibility even outdoors and in sunlight.
Specific I/O requirements so Cincoze offers the panel PCs with the most commonly needed I/O connections, including USB 3.0, COM, and GbE LAN, to connect to devices like barcode readers, cameras, and card readers. For specialised applications, there is an M.2 E key and two full-size mini-PCIe slots for wireless connectivity modules or any of Cincoze’s mini-PCIe expansion card (MEC) modules for additional COM, USB, and LAN ports.
To ensure uninterrupted operation, the sunlight-readable panel PCs can withstand a temperature range of -20 to +70 degrees C. The front panel is waterproof and dustproof with an IP65 rating. The super-hard 7H touch surface is scratch-resistant and can withstand heavy impacts, says Cincoze.
