Modern Touchscreen Console for Hospitals
The HMI planned for the platform needed to run different exercise programs, each customised for a specific machine control protocol and graphic user interface that tracked patient workout progress. The goal was to provide a ready to use x86 based All-In-One Panel PC with support for Windows 7 Embedded.
Among the various technical requirements for the console, ISO-13485 was identified as a basic requirement for the design and manufacture of the medical display systems. The product also needed to comply to all medical IEC and UL safety standards.
Finally, modern design, ease of installation, and maintenance were key design philosophies.
The internal of the HMI was powered by the latest Atom Cedar-view Embedded Computing platform which represented a leap in performance from customer’s previous unit. The generous SDRAM and SSD storage capacity allowed all custom SW for every product line to be stored, simplifying the ordering process to a single part number. Furthermore, Promate Solutions evaluated all the entire system design and was able to eliminate proprietary daughter boards by integrating functionality on the main-board, thus increasing the system performance without adversely affecting the cost.
Provides a modern fit and finish and eliminates difficult to clean gaps that invite bacterial growth.
Enhances heat dissipation, enables fanless x86 industrial PC designs, and allows for drip proof (IPx1) construction.
Reduces cost by eliminating outdated daughter boards.
Lowers EMI/EMC versus traditional true flat touch technologies.
