PBUS-26-DATAMODUL-ePaperPortfolio-400.jpgApril 19, 2021

DATA MODUL, a global provider of display, touch, embedded, monitor and panel PC solutions, recently announced its cooperation with E Ink, a global manufacturer of ePaper products and technologies. DATA MODUL is thus expanding its own display portfolio with the tried-and-tested E Ink products and is adding both segment and active matrix displays to its range for individual customer solutions.

"Our ability to offer touch solutions and custom made front lights expands the possibilities for many looking to implement ePaper displays in their products," states Thomas Klingl, President of DATA MODUL Inc.

Available in sizes from 1.10" to 42.0", the displays not only come in a variety of color choices, but are also diverse in their ranges of use. The E Ink displays are available in black/white, black/white/red, black/white/yellow as well as colored diaplays in yellow/orange or as a "full color" ePaper display. Additionally, they feature a high contrast and an extreme viewing angle thanks to the patented E Ink technology. Their reflective display makes them easy to read both in low ambient light and in bright sunlight.

"We are delighted to have another strong partner at our side in E Ink, which is a meaningful addition to our portfolio for modern display solutions," explains Dr. Xue Li, Product Manager Display Solutions at DATA MODUL. "High-performance and high-quality ePaper displays are becoming more and more in demand, especially due to new application areas such as in the medical environment as well as in Smart Life."

Another feature of the ePaper displays is their power-efficiency. Not only are they bistable and only require power when switching between images, but the displayed content then remains visible, even without power. The low power consumption aspect of ePaper technology makes it ideal for battery, low-electric, and/or solar powered applications.

"Engineers and product designers appreciate ePaper technology because it allows them to use high-contrast displays wherever power and space are limited," Li added.

ePaper displays benefit applications not suitable for conventional LCDs, as they are easy to read from all directions and angles due to their reflective display technology with sufficient ambient light. Other products that can be easily implemented with E Ink displays include wearables, different kinds of electronics tags, eReaders, eNotes, large-scale digital signage and smart living solutions.

Extremely space-saving and flexible

The C60xx series of scalable ultra-compact Industrial PCs combines maximum computing power in what is currently the most compact format with a wide range of options for installation in the control cabinet. It is ideally suited for control, visualization and communication, for example into the cloud.

The latest Intel processors − in three different performance classes, from the Intel Atom with one core to the Intel Core i7 with eight cores – offer maximum scalability and power density with an optimal price-performance ratio.

Performance classes and application areas

The C601x series offers Intel Atom computing power for a wide range of automation and visualization tasks. Due to their impressive computing power in relation to their size, the PCs are mainly suited for use in Industrie 4.0 applications, for example as an IoT gateway.

The C603x series unites high-performance Intel Core-i processors with extremely compact housing dimensions. The processors from the 65 W class have only been used in the much larger ATX-based Industrial PCs up to now. The devices thus represent a new dimension in terms of power density. They are suitable above all for particularly complex automation and visualization tasks, but also for a wide range of other applications in the field of image processing, the handling of large volumes of data and in the IoT environment.

The C602x series is the link between the C601x and the C603x, and the fanless integration of Intel Core-i-U processors of the 15 W class opens up new application areas and options.

PBUS-27-TE-MezalokMezzanineConnectors-400.jpg

TE Connectivity has recently upgraded its rugged, high-speed Mezalok mezzanine connector family to support the growing demand for higher data rates and improved processing power in military electronics. The upgraded connectors have increased data rate support up to 32+ Gb/s. The Mezalok connector family has been designed specifically for mezzanine cards in rugged applications and is standardized as the interconnect for XMC 2.0 (VITA 61). Rapidly evolving technologies in signal intelligence, radar, communications and surveillance are driving the need for more powerful embedded computing solutions. 

Mezzanine cards are often used to provide additional functionality and processing capability within a small form factor. TE designed the Mezalok connector family to support these applications. Typical applications include application-specific high-speed input/output (I/O) protocols, graphics, memory and digital-signal processing.

“New designs in rugged embedded computing require higher speeds and high pin counts in order to pack more functionality into smaller plug-in modules,” said Jason Dorwart, product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine division. “TE recognizes this trend and is continuing to build on this platform to help solve customer needs, offering new options in stack height, pin density and higher speeds, giving the system designer a broader solution set to work with when needing a fast, rugged and reliable mezzanine connector for extreme environments.” 

TE’s highly reliable Mezalok mezzanine connectors more than double the speed and durability of competing technology, making it one of the most viable options for today’s military and commercial aerospace applications.

PBUS-27-Rittal-eVIEWFreeAR-400.jpg

For their next meeting with an OEM or system integrator, can panel builders simply grab their smartphone and project the digital prototype of a control cabinet onto the desk of the managing director? Or right into the customer’s production facility? This admittedly sounds fantastical – but is already a reality. The new augmented reality (AR) add-on for the EPLAN eVIEW Free cloud software, in combination with the free Vuforia app from PTC, enables the free projection of completely assembled control cabinet into virtual space.

With EPLAN eVIEW Free AR, a new augmented reality (AR) application, EPLAN now brings the digital twin wherever users happen to find themselves. Designers can share their 3D designs of the control cabinet layout from EPLAN Pro Panel with co-workers and business partners via the cloud. EPLAN Program Manager Digitalisation Tim Oerter oversees the development of AR solutions and explains how to get started with EPLAN eVIEW Free AR: “A control cabinet is constructed in EPLAN Pro Panel and subsequently uploaded to the EPLAN ePULSE cloud environment. This makes it possible to share 3D designs with other users within an ePULSE organisation.” This also automatically generates both a link and a QR code that can be forwarded to the desired recipients. They can then use their smartphone or tablet computer to scan the code using the gratis app Vuforia View from PTC. Now the 3D design can be displayed anywhere using the camera of the end device – and can thus be projected onto a desktop or in the production environment as examples. Changes can also be made by touching any control cabinet components: simply tap the component and the system opens the 2D view of the schematics, for instance for further finetuning using the redlining and greenlining functions.
