Smart displays based on Raspberry PI for Industry 4.0 applications


During the upcoming SPS IPC Drives 2017 in Nuremberg, Germany, Distec will present their new IoT-compliant POS-Line IoT monitor for industry 4.0 applications. At this European trade show for electrical automation, Distec will display the new monitor and further highlights from 28th-30th November 2017 at Stand 228 in Hall 8.

Part of the POS-Line series, the new monitor is based on the newly developed Artista-IoT controller board, integrating the latest generation of the Raspberry PI Compute Module (CM3).

"With our self-developed Artista-IoT TFT controller, our customers receive a networkable monitor or panel PC," stated Michael Dernbach, Product Marketing Manager Display Solutions at Distec. "Thus, they can visualise the digitalisation of their processes and enhance efficiency through a transparent manufacture. The POS-Line IoT monitor or panel PC is optimally suited for cost efficient IoT applications for industry and digital signage."

The monitor is easy to adapt to individual environments. A costly PC with a lot of peripherals is now superfluous. Without any license costs, Distec intelligently connects nearly any device. Individual solutions by the TFT specialist include, among others: HMI devices, digital whiteboard and production visualisation (worker guidance, Andon systems, process status displays), medical technology, aerospace, and digital signage.

Extensive functionality and accessories
The Artista-IoT controller card provides comprehensive functionality with direct control, 100Mbit Ethernet, real time clock, and special functions such as DICOM pre-set, gamma correction, and colour calibration. Available interfaces include USB, GPIOs, I²C, and UART.

The compatibility to Raspberry PI offers the broad support of a large community of developers for advancement and integration. Distec delivers a starter kit consisting of a baseboard, CM3, 10.1" display with PCAP multi-touch as well as all necessary cables.
