Open Frame Panel PCs from WinSystems

Fan-less SBCs, touchscreens, and flat panels operate from -20° to +70°C

Designed to eliminate the confusing, ill-defined, and time consuming issues of flat panel integration, WinSystems’ open frame Panel PCs are ready-to-mount display subsystems as the man-machine interface (MMI) in applications such as test instrumentation, medical devices, machine control, homeland security, transportation, and kiosks.  These Panel PCs handle all the messy and time consuming issues of integration -- signal timing, cabling, rapidly changing panel types, touch screens, video BIOS parameters, inverters, etc. while wrapped in a sturdy metal frame.

These products consist of a color TFT flat panel display, single board computer (SBC), and touchscreen mounted in an open aluminum frame.  The open frame chassis permits flexible mounting options for the system OEMs and integrators with content-rich applications.  It supports standard operating systems such as Windowsâ XPe and Linux plus x86-based real time executives, utilities, and drivers.  The back of the Panel PC is designed for easy access and connection to I/O and power cables.

Currently WinSystems offers three sizes of displays: 6.5-inch, 12-inch, and 15-inch.  Resolutions vary by screen size from 640 x 480 VGA for a small 6.5-in unit to 1024 x 768 XGA for a 15-inch unit.  An anti-reflective coating has been applied to reduce surface reflectivity to make them easier to read in high ambient light environments.

Each Panel PC has a SBC and resistive touchscreen that matches the physical size and processing power for the appropriate display screen.  Also there are long-life, CCFL backlights that are field replaceable.  The Panel PC is RoHS compliant.
