Our Core Technologies
Built from the ground up by our in-house engineering team
Our DMs consists of color display, touch sensor and an embedded computer mounted into an aluminum or stainless steel frame all wrapped in a robust stainless steel housing.
A flexible set of interfaces are provided as standard and our standard Linux based software package is pre-installed with drivers enabling the available interfaces.
DMs are fully functional and production ready and configured to run your application.
Super-bright displays with ultra-wide viewing angles Portrait and landscape mode support with the same device.
State of the art projected capacitive touch sensors for accurate and reliable touch detection.
Development kit with all necessary development tools provided.
- Specially designed and built for our DM product range
- High brightness – 550 cd/m2 or more (including touch screen cover glass)
- Ultra-wide viewing angles – supporting both portrait and landscape mode
- 24-bit color depth for clear and vibrant colors
- High quality long-life backlight LEDs
- Wide temperature range support
The wide viewing angles provides added flexibility enabling DMs to be used in both portrait and landscape mode. The combination of high brightness backlight and wide viewing angles also makes DMs suitable for both indoor and outdoor environments, and the light performance is further enhanced when optical bonding is employed for the touch sensor and safety glass.
Our own engineers and production experts ensures that our displays are high grade made to the best quality standards always fulfilling the defined specifications. We accept no dead pixels or other typical display degradations. Employing high quality long life LEDs ensures that the vibrancy and brightness is sustained over the entire product lifetime even for long lifetime products.
The DM product range include display options satisfying industrial temperature ranges and use in harsh environments.
- State of the art projected capacitive touch sensors
- Custom designed for our DMs
- Multi-touch support
- Glove support
- Water & Moisture support
The capacitive touch sensors are based on world class touch controller technologies enabling accurate fine grained multi-touch control while also supporting gloves and water on the sensor. High transparency resistive touch sensors are available as a standard alternative to the capacitive touch based modules.
Non-touch based solutions are also available and integration of alternative input methods such as push buttons and/or dials can be provided on request.
Many DM models are available with optical bonding of the display and touch sensor. The optical bonding process removes the air gap between the display and touch sensor by fixing the touch sensor directly to the display glass. This removes any unwanted reflection of light between the display and touch sensor. The result is a vibrant display of color and improved contrast yielding a pristine high quality look.
Optical bonding is particularly important for equipment designed for outdoor use to avoid reflection from direct sunlight.
A major benefit of optical bonding is also that it ensures there is no possibility for dust and dirt to get in-between the display and touch sensor.
Safety Glass Option
Physically hardened safety glass are available in all DM sizes enhancing the robustness and impact resistance.
The hardness of the safety glass is 8H or higher far exceeding the typically 6H hardness of industry standard touch panel glass and can pass various safety industry standards.
The safety glass is optically bonded with the touch panel and can be seamlessly integrated into the DM providing a completely flat front surface.
As an alternative, for internal rear mounting, a solution with the safety glass protruding out can be used enabling the DM to be installed into a front cosmetic pill providing a completely flat front surface.
Our DM touch sensors are custom designed to support the safety glass solutions supporting reliable high performance touch detection and reporting.
- Front mount or rear mount
- Stainless steel protective housing
- Aluminum or Stainless Steel frame options
- Other frame material options or frameless on request
- Water proofing, dust proofing or other ruggedizing enhancements available
Different levels of ruggedizing are available as standard catering for different environments including water proofing, dust proofing, vibration tolerance etc. All DMs may be fitted with a protective safety glass covering the touch sensor lens.
If the standard offerings are not sufficient or special requirements precludes using a standard model a customized version can be provided. In particular different housing / frame materials, mounting and sealing solutions can be provided.
- Designed to industrial specifications
- ARM based power efficient processing platform
- Wide temperature range
- Differentiated performance options
- Flexible set of interfaces
- Lockable connectors
- Your interfaces and connector choice on request
As standard the DM supports a wide range of input power, and adaptations to specific requirements are available on request.
- CAN bus [galvanic isolated] USB RS232 RS485 [galvanic isolated]
- Ethernet GPIO MicroSD
- SPI I2C MDB [galvanic isolated] PWM S/PDIF
All DMs has an integrated battery backed hardware real time clock and may be fitted with various audio options.
All DM connectors are lockable and robust. When our standard connections are not suitable we provide enhanced solutions with the suitable connectors of choice.
A core feature of the DM electronics design is industrial power solution with associated protection circuitry designs ensuring high efficiency and robust performance in a variety of environments. The standard DMs support a range of power input from 9Vdc ~ 38Vdc.
The DM computer platform is based on the i.MX ARM based SoC family from NXP (previously Freescale). NXP provides long product life support for their i.MX industrial i.MX SoC product line. DMs comes in two performance options; with and without hardware accelerated graphics (GOU.VPU). The i-series provide an efficient processing solution for graphical user applications not requiring a large amount of dynamic content, while the x-series with integrated GPU/VPU hardware support enables creation of highly dynamic user interfaces employing hardware accelerated OpenGL support and video encoding/decoding.
- Fully functional board support package (BSP)
- Rock solid Debian Linux distribution
- Access to all Debian distribution packages through standard tools
- QT5 (QML / C++), HTML5 web clients, Java, Mono and VNC clients support
- CODESYS target visualizer support
- Driver support for all interfaces
- GPU hardware accelerated graphics support [x-series]
- VPU hardware video encoding/decoding support [x-series]
Development Kits & Development Environment
Developer kits with DM, connector board, necessary cables and software tools to quick-start development projects are available for all standard DM sizes.
Host and target based development and testing support is provided with working pre-configured Linux Virtual Machine including:
- Cross compile tools
- QT5 Integrated Development Environment
- Demo applications with source code
Target software testing, deployment and remote boot support
Our technical support service is available at no additional cost to all customers.
Our DM development kits enables quick-start of application development on both host and target device. The target device is a production grade standard DM in the size of your choice.
The host based environment is provided as a virtual machine running Debian Linux closely matching the target based DM environment. The VM includes pre-configured tool chains for cross compiling as well as an integrated development environment for graphical user application development with the QT5 libraries.
The development host is configured for QT application development and testing on the host and on deployment and testing on the target device. A number of example source code projects are provided to support quick start-up of your QT-based application development project.
If you need additional library support in your BSP or QT is not your preferred development environment choice the Debian distribution repositories provides a wide range of alternatives that can be configured using the standard package management tools.
