XtremeClient-WLU Frameless Display

Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT / Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), is delighted to announce the next generation of its XtremeClient panel PC series – XtremClient-WLU. This new panel PC is powered by 8th Generation Intel® Core™ U-Series and Intel® Celeron® 4000 Series Processors (formerly codenamed Whiskey Lake) and can fulfill the increasing demands for more graphics and computing power to real-time visualize and control the running processes in the industrial and manufacturing sectors, or to smoothly playback or stream high-definition media content in commercial applications, such as retail, hospitality, office and public institutions. It is available in a wide selection of display sizes from 15.6″ to 23.8″ with a format aspect of 16:9.

Stunning Image Quality With Exceptional Clarity

With Gen 9 Intel® UHD Graphics integrated within the 8th Generation Intel® Core™ U-Series and Intel® Celeron® 4000 Series processors, XtremeClient-WLU supports hardware acceleration for 4K UHD video encoding / decoding with up to H.265 and VP9 codec and is capable of creating stunning image quality with exceptional clarity and more detailed content. In addition, it reserves two DP++ dual-mode connectors, allowing users to extend or mirror content on two additional 4K DP / HDMI or legacy DVI displays simultaneously with no active signal converter required.

Seamless Viewing Experience With Minimal Distractions

XtremeClient-WLU combines a widescreen display enclosed within an ultra-slim frame of only 1.5 mm on four sides, which removes all logos, control buttons, status indicators and other possible distractors from the front side, allowing the content fill up almost the entirety of the surface to deliver a seamless viewing experience to audience or users. Furthermore, the frameless design refines the panel PC with a sleek and streamlined profile for seamless blending into any environments. The true-flat surface has no edges to trap dirt and grease, making easy the cleaning and maintenance.

Tablet-like Interactive Experience

XtremeClient-WLU integrates projective capacitive touchscreen (PCAP / PCT) and provides a 10-touch tablet-like interactive experience via intuitive gestures like drag, flip, rotate and zoom to interact with on-screen menus and / or graphical interfaces. That is an user-friendly interface especially ideal for applications where extra peripheral hardware such as keyboard and mouse may become cumbersome to aesthetically pleasing commercial spaces or streamlining industrial sites requiring minimal unnecessary interference.

High Resistance Against Environmental And Human Hazards

XtremeClient-WLU comes with several robust designs to provide sufficient protection against environmental and human hazards. For example, the IP65-rated front panel can prevent spray and dust from entering the enclosure. Passive cooling design based on low-power computing platform of only 15 W TDP and can eliminate the vibration caused by fan motor or blades to ensure reliable and quiet operation. The glass surface with 6H hardness can minimize the scratches and abrasion on the screen caused by sharp or rough stuff.
