Outdoor Full IP69K/IP67 Waterproof touch Panel PC WTP-8B66-15O

Wicomm has developed the WTP-8B66-15O, the industryˇ¦s first outdoor waterproof Panel PC, equipped with both waterproof ratings of IP69K and IP67. It features a sunlight readable display, fully sealed enclosure, and stable CPU operation via exclusive cooling technology. In addition, the motherboard preheating technology ensures that even at below 0˘Jthe computer can still boot for normal operation.
WTP-8B66-15O is designed specifically for outdoor applications, such as outdoor information stations, vending machines, parking meters, outdoor ordering system, desert solar power stations and other automation equipment. It is different from competitorˇ¦s products that do not have a waterproof design with full sealed enclosures, which would require the user to attach on another shell to cover the computer. The WTP-8B66-15O is a waterproof product, saving our customers the cost of having to add on an external shell. The IP69K waterproof specifications mean it can withstand high water pressure water spray. The WTP-8B66-15O also passes IP67 rating, meaning it can withstand being submerged in 1 meter deep water for up to 30 minutes.
The WTP-8B66 series is equipped with a high-performance wide temperature Intel ATOM E3845 CPU (Benchmarks: 1403),built-in wide temperature memory, DDR3L-1333 (expandable to 8G), and a wide temperature range 128GB SSD drive. IP67 metal connectors provide LAN x 1, COM x 2, and USB x 2. For the mechanical design, WTP-8B66-15O distinguishes itself from its competitors with downward directed I / O ports, making it highly suitable for outdoor environments due to a more automated system friendly layout.
WTP-8B66 series have passed FCC, CE (EMC), VCCI Class B certification standards which is better than those of most competitors. Class B has stricter electromagnetic waves standards, which results in an upgrade from industrial usage to home usage. Our users have a higher protection level in their health and safety from the electromagnetic waves while using the WTP series.
The WTP-8B66-15O is designed to be placed outdoor without needing any additional covering, and has a special housing surface that protects it from sunlight damage as well enabling it to withstand the wind and rain. The unit is also relatively rust-proof, allowing it to withstand salt erosion damage from the sea breeze. WTP-8B66-15O is equipped with a 1000 nits sunlight readable panel for outdoor use. Even in direct sunlight, the screen remains clear and readable. The display screen is also treated with a special optical bonding, anti-reflective, and anti-glare treatment to help with visibility at different viewing angles. The screen also has anti-condensation properties in environments with wide fluctuating temperatures. In long time direct sunlight, it will not produce screen albino.
In order to meet outdoor applications requirements, R&D designed the motherboard to be able to operate normally in an extensive outdoor temperature range, from -20˘J to 60˘J. For higher temperature locations, Wincomm uses an exclusive cooling technology called i-Cooling Smart Thermal Control, which uses the BIOS to control the core speed and to prevent the CPU from overheating. For low temperature environments, the motherboard's preheating circuit ensures for a circuit warm-up and system start-up. Users do not have to worry about motherboard components failure caused by low temperatures. The peripheral components of this system such as the LCD, touch, RAM, SSD, and HDD are all rigorously selected for their wide temperature range designs and capabilities. WTP-8B66-15O is assured to operate 24/7/365 in outdoor environments between -20 to 60˘J and direct sunshine high-temperature environment.
Everything, from the motherboard, BIOS, driver to the mechanical design was designed by Wincomm, so special customer requirements can be catered to and a steady supply provided over the long-term.
