Mechanical Integration and Environmental Considerations
Display and embedded integration, as well as environmental considerations, are key to ensure your system works correctly. Let our engineers help.Get in touch
Application Engineering at its best
Whether you need a display system, an embedded solution or a full embedded display design, our mechanical and hardware engineers will look at your application requirements and consider how it will be used, where it will be used and how it will be integrated. We can advise on component choice and placement when integrating our solutions with your design to ensure you have a system that works perfectly and avoid potential technical issues after production.
From a simple system to full HMI mechanical integration
Display and motherboard integration
Providing display and embedded systems with features that allow them to be easily integrated into your end design including:
- Mounting holes
- Metal / Plastic mounting frame
- Coverlens shape and size
- Double Sided Tape / RTV Glue
- PCB Custom shape and size
- Cable assembly
- Registration features including mounting pips and clips
Full embedded display integration
Using our 3D CAD tools our mechanical engineers can integrate an embedded or display system with your design, to exactly meet any constraint requirements.
If required, we can also design the mechanical enclosure or housing for the packaging of the product.
Importing your 3D design data, our engineers can review your design before the manufacture of any parts to ensure that the mounting arrangement of the display or embedded system is optimised.
Designing for the Environment
By learning about the product application from the very start of your project, our engineers can help with your display and embedded systems environmental sealing to ensure your product stands up to its environment including:
- Extremes of temperature
- Dust proofing
- Impact resistance (for vandalism protection or droppage)
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is the concept of enabling different electronics devices to operate without interfering with each other. Interference that results for non-compatability is called Electromagnetic interference (EMI) - when they are operated in close proximity to each other.
There are many ways in which electromagnetic interference can be carried from one item of equipment to another. Understanding these methods is a key to mitigating the effects of the electromagnetic interference.
Apart from understanding the form of the interference, whether that be a touchscreen, display, charger or even ambient light, it is also necessary to know how the interference is travelling from the transmitting device to the receiving device.
This is extremely difficult to discover restrospectively. However good initial design alleviates many problems. We select the most optimum components for each product at the design stage to minimise the effects of EMI so you can rest assured that the embedded display part of your design is as good as it can be.
