Premio Launches Rugged IP-Rated Stainless Steel Touchscreen Computers for Industrial HMIs

August 17, 2020 Premio Inc.

CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA - Premio Inc., an innovating global industrial ODM/OEM edge-to-cloud solutions provider, introduces two new rugged series of watertight, stainless steel touchscreen computers.  The WIO Waterproof Touchscreen Computer is hardened for harsh, rigorous environments with considerable liquid and dust exposure. The SIO Washdown Touchscreen Computer series are IP66/IP69K rated to withstand high pressure, high temperature cleanings of hygienic workspaces.

Both low-profile stainless steel solutions offer reliable structural durability and corrosion resistance suited to their exposure.  The industrial touchscreen computers are designed for advanced HMI, industrial IoT applications and interactive display objectives in various wet settings.

“We’re excited to be able to serve a range of new markets needing easy-to-use, all-in-one display computing brought to rugged and challenging, wet conditions,” said Dustin Seetoo, Premio’s director of product marketing.  “Industry 4.0, especially automation pushes the demand for robust compute power deeper into these environments, and stainless steel and ingress protection features provide the ideal HMI technologies for smarter and more efficient in-line shopfloor control"

The WIO and SIO series are ruggedized against myriad punishing factors and optimized for advanced IoT operations.  Fanless architecture eliminates a prominent computing failure point while forgoing venting vulnerabilities.  They carry 7H hardness display glass to resist scratches from sharp objects and gritty contact with gloved hands.  Optional optical bonding preserves clarity and vibrancy throughout extended humid or foggy deployments.  Both are available with highly-receptive PCAP multi-touch technology for natural, responsive interaction with bare and gloved hands.  Industrial-grade locking M12 connectors enable secure, intrusion-resistant I/O union with a host of peripheral devices.  Wireless and cellular LTE technology reduce deployment complexity while enabling remote system management and automation capabilities.

The WIO series’ defiant Type 304 stainless steel provides exceptional corrosion resistance against a range of substances.    Full IP66 rated enclosure prevents forceful water and dust penetration.  Integrated heatsink technology and anterior heat-dispersion fins neutralize thermal concerns. Concentrated power from 7th Gen Intel® Core™ Mobile-U processors offer great performance for heavier compute workloads.  Intel HD Graphics 620 provides Ultra HD resolution, while PCIe 3.0 supports robust device expansion. The solution is ready to integrate with a responsive 21.5" 16:9 touchscreen. The WIO is engineered for HMI operations, interactive display applications, and remote management in soaking, rough or treacherous settings.  Mining, agriculture and livestock management have a powerful new tool for reaping IoT efficiencies despite challenging hardware environments.

While the WIO is optimized to sustain dirtier deployments, the SIO series are further engineered for hygienic and aseptic settings.  IP66/IP69K rated sealing supplies uncompromising water resilience to tolerate aggressive high pressure, high temperature washdowns essential to sanitary assurance.  Low-maintenance Type 316 stainless steel bestows advanced corrosion resistance against a vast wider range of caustic media.  Intel® Celeron® J1900 Quad-Core Processor provides expanded compute, graphic and media capabilities to industrial IoT applications. Optional 1,000+ nit high brightness panels aid visibility in glaring environments.  Design innovations like flexible mounting options and straight AC-in power wiring simplify SIO deployments. The SIO Series are also configurable with resistive touch technology provides high-precision single-point interaction. A selection of 21.5" or 15.6" 16:9 screens, and 15" or 12.1" 4:3 screens promises a solution for any integration requirements. Native controls to disable touchscreen functions allow for continued operation throughout washdowns.  The SIO’s remarkable suitability for hygienic environments makes it ideal for food and beverage processing, pharmaceutical manufacturing and cleanroom settings.

Both industrial touchscreen computer series possess Premio’s rugged utility features like shock, vibration and extreme temperature tolerance.  Wide voltage input accommodates varied or fluctuating power sources, while integrated trusted platform modules (TPM 2.0) support powerful cybersecurity safeguards.  Cable-free architecture maintains reliable connection of internal components throughout dynamic deployments.
