Original Press Release:
IEI Announces the Latest 5.7" RISC-Based EM / Mifare Control Terminal for Home Automation
The integration of all household electronics and the ability to control them from a central location are the essential elements of a modern "smart home". Household appliances and functions are being automated, allowing lighting, appliances, air-conditioning, security systems, monitoring systems, telephones, intercoms and anything with remote control capabilities to be centrally controlled. The 5.7" RISC-based EM / Mifare Control Terminal, ACT-457A, with built-in RFID reader, works with EM or Mifare cards and tags, ideal for control systems on residential accommodation and for light commercial and small industrial applications.
The ACT-457A is an all-in-one controller and proximity reader with Microsoft Windows CE5.0 pre-installed, enabling it to be easily set-up and programmed without an additional on-site computer. The ACT-457A also boasts a large 5.7" color touch display with a resolution of 640x480, increasing ease of data input and overall readability.
The integrated Media Acceleration Engine of the RMI Alchemy(TM) chip allows playback of DVD quality video efficiently at full-frame rates with low power consumption. Common digital video media including MPEG1, 2, 4, DivX, and WMV9 are all supported, and playback at full D1 resolution requires neither a DSP nor specialized coding.
The case of the ACT terminal is made from hard plastic and the front panel is IP64 compliant. With anti-shock and anti-vibration shields and extended temperature range design for -10°C~55°C, the ACT-457A is secured against vandalism and protected against extreme environmental conditions.
Multimedia, two-way communication is essential for home automation. The ACT-457A has built-in 2W speakers, bi-directional microphone and 300K pixel webcam for real-time image capture and facial identification. Some applications of the ACT-457A include cashless payment systems in vending machines, club membership management systems, and RFID automated parking control systems.
