Winmate Marine Solutions

Sailing smoothly with Winmates wave of marine approved solutions

Overview

With over 25 years of experience, Winmate have established a track record in the marine industry for the provision of robust and reliable computing & display solutions. Winmate are a preferred supplier of marine industrial PC’s, ECDIS panel PC’s and fleet displays for leading OEM’s in the marine market – providing solutions for ECDIS, radar, automation and communication applications. Robust, aesthetic designs and years of experience in developing marine electronic solutions make Winmate a global leader in this area of electronics expertise.

Winmate select components to ensure extendable build for life time availabilities in the design phase and also provide a strict infrastructure to handle EOL (end of life) and subsequent changeover to next generation of product.

What are marine grade computers?

Marine certified Panel PC computing products are designed for maritime applications and IoT integration to assist with applications such as vessel navigation, monitoring & surveillance and ship automation systems. Winmate’s Marine PC Series are tested & certified to marine grade certification to meet international maritime regulation. Winmate ECDIS Marine Panel PCs are built and tested according to DNV Standard Certification 2.4, IEC60945, and IACS-E10 for naval applications. They are colour calibrated for ECDIS compliance, dimming brightness – and provided with projective capacitive for multi-touch interactive touch screen – as well as capacitive touch keys and wide voltage range power input 9-36 V DC.

ECDIS Colour Calibration

Winmate marine displays (both for monitor & panel PC) can be adjusted daylight, dusk, or night mode to accommodate any ambient lighting condition. CIE x, CIE y, CIE z are measured from 63 colour tokens per mode (Day, Night, and Dusk). These colour settings are calibrated at Winmate’s factory to achieve accurate colour reproduction referred to by the IEC 61174 standard. In the ECDIS-colour calibrated models, quick function keys allow instant brightness adjustment to any three modes.

DNV Certification

The application of a DNV certification guarantees the suitability of marine displays, rugged panel PC’s and embedded system PC for use in the oceanic sector. The IEC requirements define maritime computing solutions’ standard quality, safety and security.

IEC 60945 Certification

All instrumentation and components used in a ship’s bridge, even those that form a minor part of the critical framework, must be evaluated under the IEC 60945 criteria and regulations. DNV-GL (or other certified and identified third-party communities of distinction) will perform audits to this level.

Display readability & accurate touch interactivity

Winmate Marine display and Panel PCs are integrated with optical bonding technologies. They offer accuracy where interactivity is needed for control – and the ruggedness and longevity of the display solution . Predominantly though, TFT displays provided with optical bonding  provide for better clarity and sunlight readability – suitable for bridge workstations, ship command centres – where ambient lighting conditions, display glare and reflectivity all need to be coped with.

Industry Challenges

Where maritime and naval forces activities are concerned, rapid, reliable, and durable IT technologies can be required – especially where its ‘mission-critical’.

Winmate offer marine products that feature industrial-grade design, undergoing rigorous testing – even beyond that of military standard compliance to ensure safety and performance. Their innovative marine range of panel PC’s, displays and rugged embedded system computers deliver not just performance – but also peripheral connectivity via a rich mix of i/o and the ability to control and power a multitude of electronics & tools simultaneously whilst meeting the marine standards of DNVGL-CG-0339, IEC60945, and IACS E10.

To meet marine regulatory requirements, Winmate offer certified solutions for shipping navigation, monitoring & surveillance and ship automation systems. As an established provider of electronics solutions in this area,  Winmate understands the needs of the marine industry and provide real solutions to meet its challenges, such as :-

  • Extreme environments
    Naval workstation and panel PCs face extreme environments such as diverse temperature change, vibration and water ingress.
  • Accurate chart depiction
    Accurate displaying of charts is critical in maritime applications.
  • Data collection
    The need to collect data from barcodes, RFID tags, on-board imagery via photographs and videos via multiple sources.
  • Day, night, and dusk
    On-board monitor and screen must provide viewability in day, night and dusk conditions – with the ability to rapidly change on screen backlighting to adapt for ambient lighting conditions.
