iWave: Rugged HMI Series for Extreme and Tough Operating Conditions

March 15, 2022

An increased interaction between humans and machines has led to an increased requirement for rugged solutions and displays for Industry 4.0, automation, and automotive applications. iWave Systems is excited to launches iW-G39RH: a rugged HMI solution catering to this requirement. Powered by the i.MX 8M Mini application processor from NXP, The HMI solution delivers unrivaled user experience (UX). The rugged HMI panels are available in 7” and 10.1” variants, and meets protection class IP67 standards making them resistant to dust and water.

Reinforced and equipped with an IP67 rated metal housing, M12 IP67 waterproof connectors on the panel and a brighter screen with sunlight readability: all together make it an ideal choice for applications that require outside installation, or risk exposure to harsh environments and procedures. The rugged HMI finds a fit as a monitor screen or a control panel in mining, agriculture equipment, construction machinery, marine equipment, locomotives, and warehouse machinery.

Built to operate at temperatures ranging from -20°C to 65°C, and a wide input voltage range of 9V-36V together with the provision for PoE, The HMI solution from iWave is built for outdoor installations. This HMI comes with multiple mounting options such as panel mount, VESA mount, and RAM mount, providing flexibility in installations.

Like the Industrial Panel PC from iWave, the rugged HMI supports an extensive range of interfaces such as CAN, COM, LAN and USB. An M.2 expansion slot provisioned for extended storage or cellular connectivity, camera & peripheral slot for plug and play wireless modules & sensors, the HMI Solution can be customised for remote monitoring and diagnostic applications.

“Outdoor operations and hazardous environments pose many challenges for HMI solutions and displays, requiring precision engineering and innovation,” said Sachin MK, Associate Director of HMI Solutions at iWave Systems. “The iW-G39RH Rugged HMI series presents an opportunity to improve systems that do not have a specialized HMI built for them”.

The HMI solutions has option to include special package with various automotive protocol stacks such as J1939, CANopen, UDS, ISO 11992, ISO 11783, and NMEA 2000 communication standards. Integration with the protocol stacks makes the HMI a plug and play solutions for advanced analytics and diagnosis in heavy duty vehicles and construction machinery.

For rapid development of customized applications, iWave HMI solutions support the necessary software drivers and BSPs, integrate the latest Kernel version, and provide comprehensive support on the user interface (UI).
