DSL were approached by an well-known leader in food production with a request to supply a touchscreen Panel PC compliant with the strict requirements in food and beverage manufacturing.
DSL’s brief was to reduce the overall unit cost and address obsolescence issues with an existing product, an integral part of their overall solution, an intelligent remote telemetry unit fitted with a range of I/O interfaces.
DSL were approached by an internationally recognised leader in transportation solutions with a request to design a PC104 processor card, under very strict criteria including delivery of working prototypes in an incredible 15 weeks from inception date!
The ‘ComWIN’ demanded an industrial touchscreen PC, to monitor safety and environmental issues within the office grounds, which can effectively be dealt with as soon as possible, and as safely as possible.
For example, should there were to be a fire in the escalator or anywhere around it, the ComWIN will have the ability to disable the lift – whilst zooming in to specific areas of interest in 3D.
The dawn of a new era – it feels like it is such a case for DSL’s range of products, predominantly used in industrial environments, though it appears times are changing, as we find more of our products in commercial environments because they’re often more reliable, durable and vandal proof.
IPWL having developed the most advanced integrated ARC welding data logger and monitoring system needed to identify a way to display this data locally.
But what could survive the extreme environments usually only reserved for the toughest welders?
Congestion, traffic jams and frustrated commuters – a typical rush hour period on the busy M6 toll here in the UK.
Commend UK worked with DSL, with a determination to combat this not just on the M6 toll, but every UK motorway or European highways/autobahns in the future.
Speed and dexterity were key factors for DSL’s customer Sports Timing Solutions, approaching us for an application that demanded recording of live results and splits in real time at sporting events across the UK.
In a bid to prove our design process expertise (always difficult when often heavily under NDA) DSL have taken the unprecedented step of publishing all stages of one of our internal product development designs. The AMPIC.
The main challenge faced by DSL was to provide a level of hardware integration, which would reduce the technology residing on three full size PC I/O cards to a size less than that of a single PC I/O card, yet still include the essential processor elements.
The Meeting Room Booker does exactly what it says on the tin, the challenge was bringing this into the touchscreen technology age, enabling local booking and control and exactly the same via any workplace network.
DSL were approached by a CEMS to computerise their manufacturing process monitoring to improve efficiency, we achieved this using Panel PCs.
Quality and reliability are paramount for Charnwood and when one of its motion detection drive boxes was suffering from poor manufacturing yield due to a suspected design issue, it decided to get help from DSL.
