Cutting-edge HMI Solutions
demmel products is an Austrian company that specializes in providing excellent and innovative solutions in the hardware and software field. They develop, produce, and distribute state-of-the-art HMI (Human Machine Interface) technology aimed at making the lives of technology users easier, safer, and more comfortable. One of their key strengths is their commitment to providing individual support for application-related questions as part of their service offering.
Quality that inspires
The company is known for its high-quality products that have been compared to the "Mercedes among intelligent displays" by a customer. demmel products strives to meet and exceed these expectations by offering their customers everything they truly need and more. They consciously provide a wide range of interfaces because they understand that even if a specific interface is not initially required, it may become useful for future developments by their customers. While other providers may offer displays with 128MHz microcontrollers, demmel products deliberately uses a 528MHz processor based on customer feedback regarding usability and image refresh rate. They also prioritize features like high-resolution, super-bright displays and optically bonded touch panels, which are often considered exceptional or available only on request by other vendors but are standard for demmel products. The quality difference in these examples may not be apparent to users beforehand, but it becomes undeniably evident in a direct comparison.
Expectations are rising - we grow with them
demmel products acknowledges the evolving expectations in the industry and the changing landscape of HMIs (Human Machine Interfaces) in recent years. Traditional intelligent displays often struggle to keep up with the increased demands and expectations of users. With the prevalence of smartphones, tablets, and similar devices, users have become accustomed to a certain graphical interface and ease of use, which is now increasingly sought after in the industrial sector as well. The limitations of intelligent displays in meeting these demands are often due to factors such as insufficient processor performance, limited DRAM, or a lack of graphics processors.
To address the need for enhanced usability and graphical capabilities, Panel-PCs are commonly used since they offer the necessary performance. However, compared to intelligent displays, Panel-PCs typically lack the required interfaces to independently control the machinery or equipment.
Keeping this in mind, demmel products developed the iLCD Linux series, which combines the best aspects of intelligent displays and panel-PCs into a single product that meets user expectations. This solution enables the development of adaptive GUIs (Graphical User Interfaces) that match the usability of tablets while saving on hardware development costs, as the necessary peripherals are already included.
Intelligent modules are an option, yet individuality impresses every time
demmel products understands that not every project requires intelligent displays. Some customers have the expertise and production capabilities in-house and prefer to pursue their own development and production. In certain cases, intelligent displays may not be suitable due to specific project parameters. However, a constant factor is that customers, regardless of their size, want their applications and displays to stand out. In addition to high quality, individuality plays a crucial role here. This is where the LCD Pure series comes into play. While many providers offer high-resolution, super-bright IPS displays, customizations such as different cover glass, printing, or other modifications typically require minimum order quantities in the five-digit range. Alternatively, customers can source the display (+touch) from local distributors and then have an expert create and bond the custom cover glass, but this process can be time-consuming and expensive. Demmel Products aims to change this by offering numerous customizations starting from 500 units, allowing companies to make their products truly unique. They provide the display, touch panel, and desired cover glass already bonded together, all from a single source and in just a few weeks.
Display control on-board
As an add-on to the Pure series, demmel products has also developed the LCD Pure-X series. This series features a pre-assembled PCB (Printed Circuit Board) on the back of the display, eliminating the need for customers to design and develop the display driver circuitry themselves. The PCB includes all the necessary components, and the connection to the customer's board is made using a specially developed flex PCB cable. This cable handles the display control, communication, and even power supply, as demmel products believes in simplicity and convenience, minimizing the need for multiple cables.
Overall, demmel products aims to provide high-quality, innovative, and customizable solutions in the hardware and software domain, with a focus on HMI technology that meets and exceeds customer expectations.
