ATEX & Hazardous location definition

Regarding ATEX 99/92/EC directive, the requirement is that Employers must classify areas where hazardous explosive atmospheres may occur into zones. The classification given to a particular zone, and its size and location, depends on the likelihood of an explosive atmosphere occurring and its persistence if it does. Areas classified into zones (0, 1, 2 for gas-vapor-mist and 20, 21, 22 for dust) must be protected from effective sources of ignition. Equipment and protective systems intended to be used in zoned areas must meet the requirements of the directive. Zone 0 and 20 require Category 1 marked equipment, zone 1 and 21 require Category 2 marked equipment and zone 2 and 22 require Category 3 marked equipment. Zone 0 and 20 are the zones with the highest risk of an explosive atmosphere being present.

Zone classification

European and IEC Classification Definition of zone or division North American Classification
Zone 0 (gases / Vapors) An area in which an explosive mixture is continuously present or present for long periods Class I Division 1 (gases)
Zone 1 (gases / Vapors) An area in which an explosive mixture is likely to occur in normal operation Class I Division 1 (gases)
Zone 2 (gases / Vapors) An area in which an explosive mixture is not likely to occur in normal operation and if it occurs it will exist only for a short time. Class I Division 2 (gases)
Zone 20 (dusts) An area in which an explosive mixture is continuously present or present for long periods Class II Division 1 (gases)
Zone 21 (dusts) An area in which an explosive mixture is likely to occur in normal operation Class II Division 1 (dusts)
Zone 22 (dusts) An area in which an explosive mixture is not likely to occur in normal operation and if it occurs it will exist only for a short time. Class II Division 2 (gases)

Hazardous Location Definition

The National Electrical Code (NEC) and the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) defines hazardous areas as the following: An area where a potential hazard (e.g., a fire, an explosion, etc.) may exist under normal or abnormal conditions because of the presence of flammable gases or vapors, combustible dusts or ignitable fibers or flyings.



Class Definition

The NFPA Publication 70, NEC, and CEC define three categories of hazardous materials that have been designated as Class I, Class II, or Class III. The Classes define the type of explosive or ignitable substances which are present in the atmosphere such as:
• Class I locations are those in which flammable vapors and gases may be present.
• Class II locations are those in which combustible dust may be found.
• Class III locations are those which are hazardous because of the presence of easily ignitable fibers or flyings.

Division Definition

Each of the three Classes, discussed earlier, is further subdivided into two Divisions, Division 1 or Division 2. The Division defines the likelihood of the hazardous material being present in a flammable concetration.

Division Definitions
Division 1 In which ignitable concentrations of hazards exists under normal operation conditions and / or where hazard is caused by frequent maintenance or repair work or frequent equipment failure.
Division 2 In which ignitable concentrations of hazards are handled, processed or used, but which are normally in closed containers or closed system from which they can only escape thriugh accidental repture or breakdown of such containers or systems.



Group Definition

The explosive characteristics of the air mixtures of the gases, vapors, or dusts vary with the specific material involved. Materials have been placed in groups based on their ignition temperatures and explision pressures. Class I and Class II Divisions are further subdivided into Groups of hazardous materials. The group define substances by rating their flammatable nature in relation to other known substances.

Temperature Class Definition

The temperature classes are used to designate the maximum operating temperatures on the surface of the equipment which should not exceed the ignition temperature of the surrounding atmosphere.


Auto Light Sensor Solution

Why auto light sensor ?

For some applications, like digital signage, the LCD display is installed in an environment with dynamic ambient light level. Because the ambient light level varies from time to time, a fixed brightness of a LCD display might not be good enough. It could be too bright while the ambient light level is dark, and too dim while the ambient light level is strong. With auto light sensor, the monitor can auto adjust its brightness according to the ambient light environment. For example, while the ambient light level is low, the monitor brightness can auto adjust to low brightness and while the ambient light level is high, the monitor can auto adjust to high level to provide enough brightness.

The behavior pattern of Winsonic auto light sensor

There is a minimum level of the brightness for Winsonic auto light sensor. If the ambient light level is below the minimum level, the monitor will display with the minimum level brightness, and while the ambient light level is above the minimum level, the brightness of the monitor will rise according to the ambient light level. For example, if you set the minimum level of brightness as 50% ( this is Winsonic default value ) , then this monitor will always show with 50% brightness while the ambient light level is below 50% light level, and it will get brighter while the ambient light level rise above the 50% light level. If you set the minimum level as 100%, then this monitor will always show with 100% brightness.

How to install the auto light sensor ?

Because the light sensor has to receive the ambient light, users have to keep the light sensor open to the ambient light source. Winsonic usually put the auto light sensor on top of the monitor ( as picture ), yet customers can still specify the location if there is special requirement. If you are with the extension light sensor, you have to install the auto light sensor at a location that is not blocked by passengers or other obstacles.

How to set the minimum brightness ?

You can set the minimum level of the brightness through below instructions :

1. Block the light sensor with a black cloth, then go through OSD setting to set brightness as the minimum level you want, for example 30%.

2. Take away the black cloth, then you have the minimum level of the brightness 30% and the monitor will act as the above explanation of behavior pattern.


High Brightness Solution

There are 2 solutions for the high brightness requirements :
1 High Efficient LED Light Bar Replacement
Replace the original CCFL or LED light bar with a high efficient LED light bar to increased brightness, also eliminates the inverter thereby improving EMI emissions.



2 Brightness Enhancement Film Replacement
Increases panel brightness by 60% with a single sheet and up to 120% with two crossed sheets.

Installation Guide for Panel Mount Product ( Screw Mount and Clamp Mount )

There are 2 installation solutions for Panel Mount Products.
I. Screw Mount Installation
II. Clamp Mount Installation
In general, screw mount is for those screen size smaller than or equal to 24”, and clamp mount is for the screen size greater than 24”. We suggest at least 2 people to do the installation. One is at the front side of the mounting wall; another is at the back side of the mounting wall.

Screw Mount Installation

1 Get the Mechanical Drawing
You can get the mechanical drawing of your product model from our web site. If you can’t find the correct mechanical drawing, please contact us.

2 Make the cut out
There is the cutout dimension on the Mechanical Drawing. Make sure your cutout match the cutout dimension requirement. If the cutout is too small, there will be some interference. If the cut out is too big, you can’t have the screw holes at correct position.

3 Drill the screw holes
You have to drill the screw holes on your mounting wall for mounting the panel. You can find the position of the screw holes on the mechanical drawing. Make sure the position of the screw holds correctly match the position on the mechanical drawing, otherwise you won’t be able to install the screws. The best way to mount the panel is to align the bottom of the panel housing with the bottom edge of the cut out. This way can help hold the panel steadily.

4 Prepare the accessory
For screw mount installation, you need to prepare the correct screws and screw driver by yourself. Make sure the length and the diameter of the screws are correctly fit the requirement. Because the maximum depth of the standoff on the
panel is 4 mm, the length of your screw got to be the thickness of your mounting wall + 4 mm. With the correct length
screw can ensure the mounting of the panel tightly & securely.

5 Installation
Fit the panel in the cut out from the front side of the mounting wall. Adjust the position of the panel to fit all the
screw holes position properly. At the back side of the mounting wall, screw the screw through the screw hole to mount the
panel tightly. Finish all the screws mounting one by one then you can have a secure installation for your Panel Mount product. See Fig. 2.

Clamp Mount Installation

1 Get the Mechanical Drawing
You can get the mechanical drawing of your product model from our web site. If you can’t find the correct mechanical drawing, please contact us.

2 Make the cut out
There is the cutout dimension in the Mechanical Drawing. Make sure your cutout meet the cutout dimension requirement. If the cutout is too small, there will be some interference. If the cutout is too big, you can’t have the clamps mounting securely. Please note that there is thickness limitation of the mounting
wall for clamp mount installation. The mounting wall thickness limitation for greater than 24” panel is 20 mm. For those panels equal to or smaller than 24”, it is 12 mm.



3 Prepare the accessory
For clamp mount installation, you will receive at least 8 clamps and screws together with your unit and you have to prepare the screw driver by yourself. There are at least 2 clamps for each side of the panel. The clamp looks as the below picture. The clamp and the screw are paired.






4 Installation
Fit the panel in the cut out from the front side of the mounting wall. The best way to mount the panel is to align the bottom of the panel housing with the bottom edge of the cut out. ( as Fig. 2) This way can help hold the panel steadily. At the back side of the mounting wall, insert the clamp into the slide hole at the side bracket on the panel.

Spectacular Sunlight Readable LCD Display Solution



With more and more outdoor LCD Display applications in the marketplace, the readability & sustainability of the LCD panel under direct sunlight is becoming more vital. But there are several obstacles to overcome in order to provide a good LCD display solution under direct sunlight, such as the overheat issue, water-proof issue, readability issue, and the sustainability issue.

Winsonic has continually been developing a sunlight readable LCD Display solution. The company offers a full range of high brightness / sunlight readable LCD display solutions to meet consumer demand.

The factors that affect sunlight readability

Sunlight visibility of a display depends on the differences between the lumination (brightness) and the illumination (ambient light shining on the display).

Because the TFT LCD display does not emit light, it needs an external light source ( backlight ) . The brightness of an LCD display is much less than the sun, which causes the LCD displays to barely be viewable in a bright environment, especially under direct sunlight.

The best solution to direct sunlight readability is said to be transflective LCD that reflects ambient light to increase its light level. Yet, the transflective LCD display compromises the transmission rate and the contrast because it needs an additional reflective layer, not to mention the high cost problem. Right now, the transflective LCD panel is not a popular or practical solution because of these issues.

The other option to enhance visibility is to increase brightness. However, there are still several factors that affect the visibility under direct sunlight that correlate with each other. Winsonic has developed technologies that solve the problems at an affordable cost.

These technologies are :
1. High Brightness LCD panel
2. Optical Bonding
3. Anti-reflection surface treatment
4. UV protective film & IR heat rejected
5. Ventilation Structure Design

All of the above issues are related to each other, making the sunlight readable requirement complicated. Winsonic has found the right balance between these issues and the price tag to offer a cost-efficient solution that conquers the sunlight readable problem.

High Brightness LCD Panel

There are 2 solutions for the high brightness requirement:

1. High Efficient LED Light Bar Replacement Replace the original CCFL or LED light bar with a high-efficient LED light bar to increase brightness, also eliminating the inverter thereby improving EMI emissions.

2. Brightness Enhancement Film Replacement Increases panel brightness by 60% with a single sheet and up to 120% with two crossed sheets.

Optical Bonding

Optical bonding is the joining of two rigid optical elements using transparent adhesive to reduce reflectance and provide vandal resistance.

Optical Bonding Benefits:

• Increased sunlight readability up to 400%
• Increased impact resistance up to 300%
• Enables resistance to extreme temperatures
• Enable thinner and lighter display designs
• Prevents condensation and fogging                              (read more)

Anti-reflection surface treatment

The readability of an LCD display under direct sunlight is strongly correlated with the reflection of LCD surface. A reflective surface of the display will make the readability worse even with high brightness. A proper anti-reflection surface treatment is important to improve the readability.

UV protective film & IR heat rejected

Ultraviolet (UV) rays are invisible rays that are part of the energy that comes from the sun. An LCD panel can be damaged
by UV rays if it is exposed too much to the sun. A proper UV protective film is crucial for the sustainability of an LCD display under direct sunlight. The Infrared light contribute heat to cause the overheat problem. A proper Anti-IR solution is also
crucial for the sunlight readable issue.



Ventilation Structure Design

Another issue for outdoor direct sunlight applications is the overheat issue. Overheating causes the crystal to liquidize, which results in the black image. In a direct sunlight application, the ventilation structure design is more crucial because infrared light and visible light contribute heat on the LCD panel. Without the appropriated ventilation design, a LCD display won’t survive the overheat problem.

Touch Solution

Winsonic has several years experience on the touch solution development, range from Resistive Touch, SAW Touch, Surface Capacitive Touch, Projected Capacitive Touch, Infrared Touch, Optical Touch...

Resistive Touch

How It Works?

Resistive technology is suitable for variety of applications and environments.Resistive Touch Panel is two transparent resistive ITO layers (conductive and resistive layers) consisting of a sensor.

4-wire analog resistive touch panel

Each ITO layer consists of two Conductive Bars.? When touch pressure is inducted, then voltage is applied across the screen in the Y direction and presses two layers together. The voltage can be contacted with one of the X electrodes. The result of the touch creates a point, so the Y coordinate can be determined.

Broad input flexibility.
Dust-proof and liquid resistance.
High accuracy and durability.

SAW Touch

Touchscreens are available in a wide variety of product families, sizes, shapes, and surface treatments to accommodate virtually any application and environment.

Surface Acoustic Wave - SAW Touch (ST)

Surface Acoustic Wave is used acoustic waves traveling over the surface. It contains substrate material, 4 transducers, the array of reflectors and attached to the beveled edge of the glass for X and Y axis. ( 2 for transmitting and 2 for receiving ) Each of transmitting transducers (X and Y) is located at horizontal and vertical edges. Each of receiving transducers (X and Y) is located at the opposite edges. When the user touches screen, some of the energy is absorbed after that transmitting of X and Y will detect the reducing energy and response to receiving transducers of X and Y.

Benefits

High touch resolution
