At-Visions & WINDBOX – High-end solutions

At-Visions is one of the leading specialists for the equipment of luxury hotels, golf resorts and airports. For years already, their custom-made digital signage solutions rely on spo-comm Mini-PCs.

Task

Conditions like a high humidity in thermal baths or extreme circumstances in countries like Madagascar, need a very heat-resistant and durable system.  

Product / solution 

Since hotel facilities only provide a small amount of space and the system needs to have a fair price-performance ratio, the WINDBOX II was selected. The complete system consists of industrial monitors as well as the software solution OneSignage by at-visions. Demanding challenges have to be faced, since this product is used all around the world.  

Conclusion

The collaboration makes it possible to deliver the systems to international customers fast and reliably. Warranty cases are being handled in only a few days.

[description] =>

As the new mini PC still impresses with its included Intel Atom Technology on the cutting edge, it now has amongst the common DVI interface another one for monitors – on which pictures and videos are shown razor-sharp in full HD.

Further highlights of the powerful device are the unlimited usage of 64 bit operating systems or the expanded working memory: up to 4 GB RAM in comparison to 2 GB RAM of the earlier model. The power consumption is also worth mentioning: At highest performance level the device only needs about 19 watt – thanks to the very powerful but extremly economic combination of a powerful graphics processor and a very energy saving processor. In regards to external influences the Plus model impresses with a strong performance, too: It smoothly operates at temperatures of 0 °C up to 40°C and even an air humidity up to 90 % can't stop its capability.

spo-book WINDBOXII Plus is available for spo-comm partners exclusively at the mid of April 2012, all others can buy it at the mid of May. Of course, the predecessor – spo-book WINDBOXII – is still available. Thanks to same size and design WINDBOXII Plus can replace the previous model easily and quickly without any effort for users.

spo-book WINDBOXII Plus impresses with high performance level

Looks the same but is even more powerful: With WINDBOXII Plus spo-comm now continues - in close cooperation with MSI IPC - WINDBOXII's success story by offering users some attractive additional functions.

Task 

What was needed, was a suitable Mini-PC system for a measuring station that measures and analyzes the snow water equivalent and the moisture content of the snow 2500 meters above sea level.

In addition to the constant availability, the challenge was to cope with the restricted infrastructure and the extreme climatic conditions that prevail there. 

The technical adaptability to extreme conditions was the most important criterion for the scientists at LMU Munich.

Product / solution 

The perfect system is the MOVE T56N. Next to withstanding temperatures from -30°C to +60°C with a passive cooling, the system has an input voltage range from 9V to 36V.

The voltage converter, optimized for the automotive sector, reliably compensates for temporary irregularities and, with an additional fuse, ensures the protection of the entire system. 

Another advantage is the high-quality workmanship of the internal and external plug connections, which do not loosen even in the event of vibrations or strong thermal differences.

Conclusion

A Mini-PC that was developed for extraordinary burdens in vehicles, also withstands the extreme conditions in a measuring station in alpine mountains. Like that, the water content of the snow in this area is no secret.
