Industry 4.0 Timeline MapA term many industrial concerns are hearing more and more these days is “Industry 4.0“. Sounds vaguely ominous, doesn’t it? ‘What was Industry 3.0? How many new things do I have to learn?’ Fortunately, not nearly so much as you think – and Estone Tech is available to help with the rest.

As reported last month by Technavio technology research firm, the worldwide use of industrial tablet computers is expected to grow strongly, by more than 6% per year, over the next 5 year period. Growth is expected to be especially strong in “small size” tablets, which Technavio identifies as tablets less than 11” in size (as measured by screen size). Estone Tech’s ET, MPOS, MR, and MT product lines all offer tablets less than 11”, suited for a wide range of commercial and industrial concerns.

The report also indicated that three areas in which Estone has great expertise are expected to grow quickly – especially Industrial Tablets, Healthcare Tablets, and Transportation Tablets. These market segments require unique tools and technology from their tablet pcs, such as integrated barcode scanners for tracking inventory, NFC connectivity for security, and vibration resistance to cope with life on the road. It’s important for industrial tablet customers to consider all of their needs and requirements before selecting a tablet manufacturer.

A report on Businesswire also discusses the growth of the industrial tablet market in various world markets. The European market is the largest current tablet market, with heavy growth driven by Germany, France, and the UAE and Saudi Arabia in the middle east. Those countries are most interested in field service tablets for the petrochemical & energy industries. Meanwhile, the Americas and Asia will also see strong growth, driven by the transportation and military industries. Estone tech is pleased to offer quality tablet PCs in each of these industries.

All-In-One Computing Platforms & IoT Gateways on Display at Internet of Things Conference

Internet of Things World ConferenceSanta Clara, CA – As technology and electronics developers the world over try to bring their products into the world of tomorrow, the aptly named “Internet of Things” becomes more important than ever. Devices that offer connectivity, information, and operation from anywhere can create a new level of efficiency on the job and at home. Likewise, products that are able to communicate information about their operation, status of supplies, and necessary maintenance to their owners or manufacturers can ease any burdens of ownership, and help manufacturers built the best possible equipment by demonstrating why and how people are using the products. Lastly, by communicating with each other, IoT enabled devices in your home or workplace can improve the result of any process.

In order to make these benefits a reality, product developers and manufacturers need a trusted partner in the development of embedded, integrated, and special use electronics and computers. Estone Tech Business Development Manager Randall Sucamele will be on hand at the Iot World event in Santa Clara, CA from May 16th – 18th to help attendees find that trusted partner.

High Efficiency Wireless Charging System for Your Tablet PC

 

We are proud to announce that we have developed a high efficient wireless charging system for power hungry tablet PCs. The cost is in par with most  wireless charging systems in the market, making it a very affordable option.

Most wireless charging systems in the market are designed for mobile phones. Many claim they can reach 1A charging current, but often fall between 400ma to 700ma. It becomes a challenge for tablet charging, especially the large tablet in 10” to 12” display size. The charging time often take 10 to 20 hours. For business tablets used in vertical markets such as medical, logistic, and mobile POS, it becomes worse because such tablets often have a large battery. These tablets could take 30 hours to fully charge!
Estone’s charging system uses 12V input voltage to boost the efficiency of the charging pad to transmit the power to the receiving coil inside the tablet. It can generate 2000ma 5V stable current in the coil to charge the battery. The system is reliable and does not generate abnormal heat in the charging area. It will virtually take the same amount of time to charge a tablet as an in-wall AC adaptor.
This wireless charging system is compatible with QI standard. We have tested our system in various tablet platforms and are currently working with leading medical equipment companies for distribution.
