SECO has introduced six new members of its FLEXY VISION family, a series of high-resolution and cost-efficient Panel PCs, also known as Human-Machine Interfaces (HMIs), with various characteristics, dimensions, and operating systems.

FLEXY VISION: Elegance, style & high graphic performance in multiple formats

SECO’s FLEXY VISION portfolio now has seven HMI monitors in various formats. The six new monitors feature: 7" and 10" with x86 processor architecture, 13.3" and 15.6" with both Arm and x86 architectures. They are added to the previously launched FLEXY VISION 21.5", a SECO Panel PC based on the Intel® Atom™ X Series and Intel® Celeron® J / N Series (formerly Apollo Lake) Processors. All FLEXY VISION monitors include a user-programmable processor, multiple wired and wireless connectivity options, soldered memory, and a multitouch capacitive display.

The x86 HMI monitors incorporate SECO’s SBC-C41-pITX Single Board Computer, which features an integrated Intel® HD Graphics 500 series controller with up to 18 execution units. Connectivity includes dual Gigabit Ethernet, and two M.2 slots for plug in cellular modem (also known as wireless wide area network, or WWAN), and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth radio (also known as wireless local area network, or WLAN) cards, and multiple
USB ports. SECO’s current four Panel PC monitor size options are: FLEXY VISION 7, 10, 13.3, and 15.6.

Arm based solutions

For those looking for an Arm based solution, SECO offers the FLEXY VISION 13.3 and FLEXY VISION 15.6. Each incorporates SECO’s SBC-C31 Single Board Computer, powered by the Rockchip RK3399 processor, with 2x Cortex-A72 cores and 4x Cortex-A53 cores, running up to 1.8 GHz. These FLEXY VISION Panel PCs additionally provide cellular communications via a Quectel EG25-G plug-in card. This cellular radio is optimized for mobile-to-mobile (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications, providing worldwide 4G (LTE), 3G (UMTS/HSPA+) and 2G (GSM/GPRS/EDGE) coverage. The RK3399 processor integrates a 4-Core Mali-T860MP4 GPU and an embedded VPU that provide HW decoding/encoding of many video compression standards (H.264, VP8, VP9, MPEG-4/MPEG-2/VP8). These FLEXY VISION monitors additionally provide a 4K resolution HDMI interface.

Each FLEXY VISION Panel PC features a sleek and elegant aluminium frame, with panel and VESA bracket mount options. An optional table stand is available. The display can be adjusted for use in both landscape and portrait modes.
