Operating systems

Christ develops hardware-oriented embedded operating system images for Windows and Linux. We take into account requirements for boot times, functional scope and system protection. We define and implement the appropriate functional scope (drivers, write protection, installed programs), optimize for system stability and boot time and, if required, offer the "autorun" option with automatic application start, version management and use of Enhanced Write Filter. For more information, see Embedded Software.

Operating systems overview:
  • Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSC: This operating system guarantees long-term support (Long Term Servicing Channel)
  • Linux Ubuntu 20.04 LTS: Ubuntu version with long-term support.

Front panel with compact technology for industrial applications

Choose flexibly from numerous performance classes, exactly the performance you need for your application. Despite different CPUs, nothing changes visually on the housing. This is due to the uniform form factor of the boards, which are compactly installed in the rear cover. The unification allows different display diagonals and different intelligences to be combined.

Sometimes the interfaces provided by default are not enough. That's why we offer you expansion options with additional add-ons. You can also choose different upgrades for the memory and expand the standard memory size.

The Front Panel is passively cooled and does not use fans. Thus, you get maintenance-free Front Panels that can also be used in demanding environmental conditions. The heat generated is dissipated via the case. For small display diagonals, rear covers with cooling fins are used. This allows a temperature range of 0 to 50°C for all diagonals.

Touch operation at the highest level

We use the latest generation of touch controllers, which are particularly sensitive. For error-free machine operation, we calibrate the touch to your individual specifications. The sensitivity is optimally adapted to your environmental conditions. Water or dirt on the display are thus no problem for safe operation. Also for the use of gloves, in rough or hygienic environments, the touch can be calibrated to your requirements.

In addition, the new touch controller is characterized by particularly high EMC stability.

We are also breaking new ground in terms of display diagonals. This means that in the future we will offer you Full HD resolution throughout from 13.3 to 21.5 inches. For this purpose, we have introduced a new diagonal with 13.3 inches, which lies between our standard sizes with 12.1 and 15 inches.

Installation Industrial Front Panel

The Industrial Front Panels can be inserted from the front into the recess provided. The tight aluminum frame on the front gives them IP65 protection. On the rear side, the Front Panel can be fixed with the help of threaded pins.

Touch Panel assembly

New design for Front Panel

The design language of our Front Panels is visually a highlight and functional at the same time. It was important to us to develop a housing whose design prevents dirt and liquids from settling. This also reduces the amount of cleaning required.

Thanks to the new, modern design with beveled surfaces and edges, you get a Touch Panel that meets different requirements. The housing concept runs through all our new housing variants, such as Industrial VESA or Industrial Automation.

Touch Panel Design Detail

By using industrial quality components we offer our customers a high long-term availability of the Touch Panels and their components. Should components be discontinued, we will find a suitable alternative together.

We not only want to supply our customers with robust and durable hardware. Our goal is to offer a complete solution consisting of hardware and software, if required. In doing so, our customers receive a system that is optimally coordinated with each other. Because we know our hardware exactly and develop the perfectly matching software based on it.

With regard to digitalization, we also support our customers with various IIoT solutions that are precisely tailored to the respective requirements

For particularly efficient organization of software updates and remote maintenance of the used touch panels we offer our Christ Service Portal. Here you get all relevant information about your devices at a glance and can easily perform software updates over the air.

Touch Panels in machines and plants must work smoothly, because downtimes in production are extremely expensive. To guarantee that our Panels are ready for your use, all devices undergo an endurance test before delivery. Only if this is positive, they are shipped to our customers.

We want to offer our customers as much flexibility as possible. For this reason, our customers can help themselves from an extensive portfolio and configure exactly the Touch Panel that best meets their respective requirements. We are happy to advise and support our customers in this process. Often, special requirements can be met with our standard solutions. Our customers thus save costs and time for complex new developments..

We offer an extensive portfolio of display diagonals for our Front Panels. Here is an overview of the individual Touch Panel sizes: 7, 10.1, 12.1, 13.3, 15, 15.6, 18.5 and 21.5 inch.

We offer both Windows and Linux as operating systems. For Windows applications, we use the Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSC version with long-term support. For Linux variants we use Linux Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, also with long-term support.

We offer all Touch Panel solutions as monitor, distance monitor, for particularly large systems or Touch Panel PC. As Panel PC variants there are still different performance classes for different applications. Overview of the CPUs:

  • Intel® Celeron™ N3350 1.1 GHz
  • Intel® Celeron™ 3965U 2.2 GHz
  • Intel® Core™ i3-7100U 2.4 GHz
  • Intel® Core™ i5-7300U 2.6 GHz
  • Intel® Core™ i7-7600U 2.8 GHz
  • Yes, due to the construction without beads and edges the touch panels are particularly easy to clean. The fulfillment of the protection class IP65 on the front side prevents the penetration of liquids.
