WideLink technology enables the operation of visualization systems at up to 100 meters distance from the control computer
The transmission method Kontron WideLink enables remote visualization with monitors and control panels at up to 100 meters distance from the control computer. Kontron premiers WideLink technology with the new KBox C-102 series designed for control cabinet installation and the new frameless industrial monitor Kontron FusionView as a decentralized visualization system.
WideLink is a transmission procedure independent from the operating system based on the IEEE1911 standard. It implements data communication between a remote visualization unit and control computer through a standard CAT6a Ethernet cable. Transmission via WideLink includes the digital display signals, the touch interface feedback as well as USB- and audio signals. WideLink routes these signals through the Ethernet cable and provides them at the terminal device without time lag or quality loss. This transmission method does not engage the control computer’s CPU and memory, an operating system or any other supplemental software is not required; image data is transmitted uncompressed and up to Full HD resolution.
Even in very complex and expansive production facilities,
WideLink technology enables efficient and ergonomic visualization solutions. It furthermore improves machine uptime, as the control computer can be run in a protected control cabinet with controlled ambient variables whereas visualization is realized where needed.
