OMNI-2155: Your "OMNI" Choice for Expandable Panel PCs
Press release date: Oct 23, 2015
While customizable panel PCs are nothing new, they often involve stripping the system device down to its individual components and reassembling it to its requested specifications. The OMNI-2155 shortens the lead time involved by adopting a modular design, making the customization process as easy as building Lego® toy bricks.
The panel accomplishes this with a simple connector on the main CPU box, which houses the CPU as well as other essential components on the rear of the panel. Dubbed the "OMNI- slot", each module is connected to the CPU box through this slot-like a USB device. This "plug and play" approach not only makes customization and expansion much easier, it enables the device to be NRE free, hence driving the overall cost down.
A total of eight modules are currently available: a USB/ COM/ LAN combo module, a dual LAN module, a MiniCard and SIM card module, an RS-232/422/485 module, an isolated RS-232/422/485 module, a digital I/O module, a CAN Bus module, and an audio module.
The panel itself is a 15.6" device sporting a 16:9 P-CAP touchscreen with a full aluminum chassis that offers wider operating temperature and superior cooling over other contemporaries out in the market. The P-CAP touchscreen can be changed to resistive upon request.
"The everlasting popularity in toy bricks serves as the basis for the OMNI-2155's design concep", said Tim Lin, Product Manager for AAEON's Panel Appliances and Automation Division. "Through the use of modules, including/excluding certain features on the device can be done effortlessly which is the direction AAEON will be going towards for future OMNI-products".
