Hsinchu, Taiwan –23rd Mar, 2020,
Wincomm, a long-time leader in the industrial panel PC field with a focus on unique thermal solutions, introduces the advanced technologies on HMI controller touch panel PC solutions designed toward outdoor to semi-outdoor environment requirement, size ranging from 10” to 21.5” to enlarge the use at rugged IIoT solutions. Designed for applications of rapid changed outdoor environment, Wincomm comes up with sunlight readable, smart thermal management, light control, anti-water condensation, water-proof, dust-proof and anti-acid corrosion products, making it ideals to any type of rugged semi-outdoor or outdoor environment.

Sunlight Readable with Optical Bonding to Enhance Image Clarity
Under direct sunlight, there will comes with many troubles from physical phenomenon of light, such as light reflection. To provide the best visual experience, Wincomm provides high brightness, up to 1000 nits, panel with high contrast ration to make images clarity under sunlight, and either 5-wire resistive single touch or P-cap multi-touch for different applications.  Featuring at optical bonding technology, a dedicate technology to eliminate all the possible seams and air between layers to help light fully pass through the glass and avoid the ghost image caused by light fraction, this semi-outdoor versus outdoor series are designed to leverage not only optical bonding, anti-reflection, and anti-glare treatment to help with visibility at different viewing angles, but also anti-UV design to keep touch screen & LCD from sunlight damage.  Moreover, the whole panel PC could be verified under solar radiation test which uses xenon light to simulate solar energy to proof its performance and quality.

Smart Thermal Solution w/IP66/69K Enclose in Rugged Environment

Under extreme climate changes environment and rapid temperature changes, Wincomm RD team have designed the motherboard to be able to operate normally in an extensive outdoor temperature range, from -20℃ to 60 ℃. For higher temperature locations, it is used an exclusive cooling technology called i-Cooling Smart Thermal Control, which uses the BIOS to control the core speed and to prevent the CPU from overheating. For low temperature environments, the motherboard's preheating circuit ensures for a circuit warm-up and system start-up. Users do not have to worry about motherboard components failure caused by low temperatures. The peripheral components of this system such as the LCD, touch, RAM, SSD, and HDD are all rigorously selected for their wide temperature range designs and capabilities. This out-door to semi-outdoor series are assured to operate 24/7/365 in either outdoor or semi-outdoor environments low temperatures down to -20℃ and direct or indirect sunshine high-temperature environment.

To be designed specifically for outdoor applications, such as outdoor information stations, vending machines, parking meters, outdoor ordering system, desert solar power stations and other automation equipment, it is provided with full sealed enclosures, a waterproof design which would save the cost for users to attach on another shell to cover the computer. The IP66/IP69K waterproof and dustproof specifications mean it can withstand high water spray pressure and dust spreading.Capable to pass IP67 rating, it means that Wincomm team could provide the product that is able to withstand being submerged in 1 meter deep water for up to 30 minutes. In quality assurance, for Wincomm’s Full IP66/IP69K/IP67 stainless panel PC series, each individual machine has been through Wincomm’s rigorous testing procedures to ensure that the WTP series models are waterproof and dustproof to the certified IP66/69K/67 rating.

Light Control to Dynamic Dimming for Day-Night Running
Due to high brightness LCD is too bright at night and wastes energy, it is designed with brightness automatically control timely by a light sensor to detect the ambient light, and thus makes LCD picture readiness quality during day-night with better cost saving.

Smart Ventilation to Prevent Water Condensation
It is equipped with strategically placed ventilation holes to prevent screen condensation from wide outside temperature fluctuations in outdoor environments. In long time direct sunlight, it will not produce screen albino.

COM and Power Port Available
In this series, it is supported with wide-voltage input to secure system from power instability, from 7 to 32 volts. Besides, end user may use a COM interface device, such as barcode scanner, which needs COM plus DC power from PC via single cable to operate. The way COM cable works is that a serial connection does not use all its pins in the interface with a COM cable. Therefore, Wincomm customizes the mother board with a 5V or 12V power supply in COM port.

Flexible Options and Customization Capability
The wide-temp, high brightness series equipped with various I.O. ports, USB up to 4 (Optional USB 3.0), COM x 2, LAN x 1, and optional External LAN x 2 (occupied one COM port). Toward IIoT trend, Wincomm offered optional add-on parts to support more workplace application, such as customized 2nd HDD for RAID 0,1, sunlight readable optical bonding (Impact protection level: IK08), waterproof cable gland, speaker, and so on.

FCC, CE (EMC), VCCI Class B certification standards
The wide temp high brightness series has passed FCC, CE (EMC), VCCI Class B certification standards, which results in an upgraded product for industrial, to home, to office, and laboratory usage. It secures users to have a higher protection level in their health and safety while using our products.
