Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator for Industrial PC (IPC) and embedded computing solutions, and an associate member of the Intel® Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions Alliance, announces COMBO 10.1 inch, a new compact and projective capacitive touch HMI with wide temperature and voltage support. Powered by NXP® i.MX 6 series application processors family, a scalable multi-core platform that includes single- and quad-core processors based on the ARM® Cortex™-A9 architecture, the COMBO 10.1 inch HMI is designed for next generation industrial applications.
By combining the power-efficient processing capabilities with bleeding edge 3D and 2D graphics, as well as high definition video, the i.MX 6 series provides a new level of multimedia performance to enable an unbounded next generation user experience. The unprecedented levels of performance and power efficiency make Portwell’s COMBO 10.1 inch HMI an ideal and cost-effective solution for applications which require high performance in low power or thermally constrained environment.
As well as being equipped with a projective capacitive touch screen and a resolution of 10.1 inch 1280 x 800 industrial display in stylish 16:9 aspect ratio, the COMBO 10.1 inch HMI features an IP65 rated front panel, and is housed in a plastic bezel, making it slim, lightweight but still rugged for harsh environments. COMBO 10.1 inch HMI features all required interfaces for industrial application: 1 x RS-232/422/485, 1 x HDMI output, 1x HDMI input 2 x USB 2.0, 1 x USB OTG, 1 x Gigabit Ethernet, and 1 x CAN 2.0B. Moreover, it equips 512MB to 2GB DDR3 memory down, 8GB eMMC onboard and 1 x SD card slot. One SMA antenna interface can provide optional Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G/4G function via a full-size mini PCIe socket. Additionally, 4-bit DI/ 4-bit DO, Line-in, Lin-out and one more RS-232 are optional functions for project use.
Only the best components go into the system and board design in Portwell’s COMBO 10.1 inch HMI. The aluminum extrusion back cover is good for thermal dissipation, allowing it to operate in extended temperature ranging from -20°C to 60°C and the fan-less design ensures silent operation, improved reliability and reduced maintenance costs. The cable-less structure also optimizes the thermal dissipation as well as ensures durability and reliability in harsh environments. In addition, thanks to its robustness and easy operation, HMI with projective capacitive touch solution becomes a popular solution in the factory automation industry. With the latest touch screen technology, COMBO 10.1 inch HMI features high touch durability, sensitivity and long-term sustainability thanks to the anti-scratch surface with 7H hardness protection. 10-points multi-touch supports a full set of gestures such as zooming in/out, panning, or rotating, giving users a whole new way to control and interact with what’s on the screen even with surgical gloves or thin cotton gloves. It can support monitor function via one HDMI input port. It can be an ideal PIP (picture in picture) solution to integrate external video signal and compute on the COMBO 10.1″ HMI itself.
Additionally, the Portwell COMBO 10.1 inch HMI supports 12~24V (±20%) wide range DC input for various operating environments and allow panel mounting and standard 50mm x 25mm as well as 75mm x 75mm VESA mounting. It supports different operating systems, such as Yocto Linux® 4.1.15 with QT 5.6.1 and Android® 6.0.
