IBASE Technology, which manufactures industrial motherboards and embedded systems, launched the IDOOH-210 digital out-of-home sunlight readable panel PC, the company announced. The unit is a digital out-of-home (DOOH) system that is suitable for both indoor and outdoor deployment, the company said.
According to the company, it is manufactured to meet stringent quality standards and requirements for reliability, supporting 24-hour operation in extended temperature range from -40 degrees Celsius (-40 degrees Fahrenheit) and up to 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit), its IP65 rated enclosure makes it dust-tight and water-resistant.
The IDOOH-210 has a 21-inch sunlight readable LCD display panel. However, during nighttime conditions, the inverter allows for a wider dimming range to dynamically adjust luminance. The touchscreen offers heat insulation for effective thermal protection against aging and UV. Infrared energy is reduced by approximately 80 percent and UV decreased to less than 1 percent, but still, 70 percent of visible light can pass through. Outdoor touchscreen kiosks are popularly used in drive-thru ordering stations and designed to withstand the rigors of heavy use but also built to work in harsh environments, resisting dust and fluid intrusion. According to the company, the IBASE IDOOH-210 system is ideal for this and other harsh and outdoor kiosk applications such as digital signage, ticketing and vending machines.
Based on IBASE-owned thermal separation and isolation patent, an airflow-control device has been integrated into the system to calculate the airflow speed needed at various temperatures and the isolation air space setting. This maximizes thermal dissipation to deal with the heat source and cools down the system temperature effectively.
When the system temperature is lower than the set lowest temperature, the system will auto start the temperature control mechanism until the system temperature reaches the acceptable threshold. While the system is still under monitoring, the temperature control mechanism will auto start if the temperature drops to the lowest threshold.
There is a light sensor installed in the system that allows it to adjust the LCD brightness automatically depending on environment conditions, to save energy and provide better visibility.
